A respected surgeon, able to combine the cosmetic and physical elements needed for successful reconstructive surgery.
Mr Collier is a consultant oral and craniomaxillofacial surgeon, with a special interest in the reconstruction of facial tissue, following trauma, congenital deformity, disease, or when cancer has required tissue to be removed.
His skill in cosmetic reconstruction of facial defects caused by skin diseases is of immense value to our patients. Not least where they are able to make a practical and aesthetic recovery from serious skin cancer damage.
Studying medicine at Oxford and Cambridge, Mr Collier won significant awards, before qualifying as a dental surgeon at Queen Mary University London. A dual status which brings a profound understanding of the facial skeleton and tissues.
Admission to the Royal College of Surgeons of England followed, through a Fellowship in Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery. An ensuing PhD in cancer immunology, which won national research grants and prizes, points to Mr Collier’s additional interest.
He has contributed much to medical research, taking projects forward for the British Association of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons, Cancer Research UK and other well recognised international bodies.
This brings benefits for patients and fellow members of his profession. Mr Collier is an examiner for the Royal College of Surgeons, has published a number of key research papers and lectures internationally.
Helping colleagues and professional bodies is valuable, although so is the life changing treatment Mr Collier supports as a volunteer with medical charities overseas. Part of a natural care for people which leads his work.
