Limb Reconstruction
Specialist clinical interests:
Mr Goodier has pioneered Limb Reconstruction treatment using the Ilizarov and other external fixators, as well as deformity correction, management of osteomyelitis.
Education and training:

Mr Goodier qualified from The Royal London Hospital in 1985 and worked there and at St Bartholomew's Hospital as lead consultant for trauma orthopaedics for 15 years, and as Head of Department for 3 of those years.

The Royal London is the home of the Helicopter Emergency Medical Service, giving him an unparalleled experience of the management of the most severely injured patients. It was this experience that led to an interest in the management of 'problem fractures' including complex fracture patterns, non-unions, multiple injuries and infected fractures.
