About Bruce

Bruce Richard profile

Mr. Bruce Richard provides a general plastic surgery practice as well as further specialising in the treatment of children, young people and adults with facial deformities as a result of cleft lip and palate or other birth defects. His research interests focus on the cause and treatment of cleft lip and palate and facial nerve reconstruction and he holds an honorary senior lectureship at the University of Birmingham in order to supervise some of these research projects.

Mr. Richard qualified in 1980 from St Mary’s Hospital Medical School, London and then completed 6 years of general and plastic surgery training. He has a strong commitment to improving health in less developed countries and following the completion of his training he moved to Nepal where he lived and worked for 9 years.

Whilst in Nepal, Bruce set up a department for plastic and reconstructive surgery for the Government of Nepal in Pokhara. On returning to the UK he completed a further 3 years of higher plastic surgery training, passed the Intercollegiate College exam in Plastic Surgery and gained a Master of Surgery degree for his research thesis on the facial nerve. He now visits Nepal regularly in his role as lead educator for the postgraduate plastic surgery programme at Kathmandu University.

Bruce is married and spends much of his free time with his family. He enjoys multicultural situations and continues to have many links with colleagues and friends in developing countries
