Jonathan Wright is a Paediatric Orthopaedic and Limb reconstruction surgeon. His practice includes non-spinal paediatric orthopaedic conditions including limb deformity, neuromuscular conditions, hip pathology and disorders of the foot.  He also sees adults with congenital and acquired limb deformities requiring limb lengthening or reconstruction techniques. Mr Wright is part of the RNOH limb reconstruction unit working alongside Mr Calder and Mr Goodier.

He graduated from his medical degree at University College London, with honours in 2006. Whilst as a Specialist Registrar he completed his higher orthopaedic training on the Percivall Pott rotation. On obtaining his FRCS he was awarded the Arthur Edward Burton memorial prize for the best performance in the written examination. During his training, Mr Wright gained experience in paediatric orthopaedics and limb reconstruction at several centres including Great Ormond Street Hospital, the Royal London Hospital and the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital.

Mr Wright completed two international fellowships, firstly at the Ilizarov Scientific Centre for Restorative Traumatology and Orthopaedics, Kurgan, Russia, where he worked on the use of circular fixators for deformity correction and limb lengthening. Subsequently he undertook a 12-month fellowship in Paediatric Orthopaedics at the Starship Children’s hospital in Auckland, New Zealand.

His research interests including paediatric congenital and acquired deformity along with outcomes and registry data in limb reconstruction. He has published multiple scientific papers and book chapters in orthopaedic textbooks (listed below).
