Louise McCullough, Consultant Orthopaedic Trauma Surgeon

Consultant Orthopaedic Trauma Surgeon

Louise graduated from the University of Dundee in 2002, following Junior House Officer job in NHS Tayside she gained a much sought after place on the NHS Grampian Basic Surgical Training Rotation.  She had experience in Orthopaedics, General surgery and Plastic surgery and within this 3 year rotation developed a keen interest in Orthopaedics, particularly the area of Orthopaedic Oncology and trauma.  These areas of interest have been developed as she gained further training in Orthopaedics in NHS Tayside and an orthopaedic training number in NHS Grampian.

At the completion of training she gained further experience working in Queens Medical Centre, Nottingham, focusing on sub-specialist areas of interest of Major trauma and Orthopaedic trauma operating and the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital, Birmingham, focusing on Orthopaedic oncology before rejoining NHS Grampian as a consultant. She won a travelling fellowship to Toronto Mount Sinai Sarcoma service and gained insight into how sarcoma services run in other countries.

As well as her clinical role managing patient with bone and soft tissue cancers and acute fractures, general elective orthopaedics she is currently Clinical Education Lead for the North of Scotland Major Trauma Network, involved in identifying the educational needs of all allied health practitioners, nursing and medical staff working with the Major Trauma Network.  We are a unique network given the geography and the remote locations that we serve, creating logistically and organisational challenges to ensure equality of access to our service.

She is heavily involved in pitchside care, particularly rugby, being doctor for Aberdeen rugby for the last 15 years and the Scottish Rugby Union.  This has prompted an interest in soft tissue injury and assessment and resulted in undergoing a course in myofascial release.
