Mr Nicholas Grew BDS MBChB FDSRCS FRCS FRCS (OMFS)

Mr Nicholas Grew is a Consultant in Oral and Maxillofacial and Head and Neck Surgery working at New Cross Hospital, Wolverhampton, Russells Hall Hospital, Dudley as well as The Manor Hospital Walsall and privately at The Wolverhampton Nuffield Hospital.

He has a broad area of interest in all areas of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery but has specialist skills in the treatment of Head and Neck Cancer and Microvascular reconstruction. Many of these skills transfer over into his work with Aesthetic Dental Implants. The techniques of osseointegration and dental implantology, often used with the techniques of microvascular reconstructive surgery, continue to advance what can be achieved for patients with complex problems either as a result of tumour, accident or deformity. These techniques give a quality of life not always considered possible previously.

Oral and dental implantology has developed dramatically over the last 30 years. Implants are now being used more commonly to restore lost teeth in the general population and the previous breadth of experience developed over many years continues to grow and help a wider range of patients with a wider range of treatment options.

Maxillofacial surgeons in the UK are required to be qualified in both dentistry and medicine undergoing intensive training. They must pass fellowship examinations of The Royal College of Surgeons in Dentistry, General surgery and Oral and Maxillofacial surgery.

In December 1988 Mr Nicholas Grew graduated from the University of Birmingham in Dentistry (BDS) obtaining Honours in Anatomy, Pathology, Clinical Practice, Medicine and Surgery. He was awarded the Alexander Youngson Prize in Dental Prosthetics and the Walpole Day Prize in Children's Dentistry and Orthodontics. His study on cross infection was awarded with a prize in the National Wisdom Dental Student Award.

After working in Oral and Maxillofacial surgery as Senior House Officer he returned quickly to study Medicine in September 1990.

Whilst studying Medicine he obtained his Fellowship in Dental Surgery in June 1993. Further Honours in Surgery and Pathology was received along with the Queens Hospital Joseph Sampson Gamgee Prize in Surgery and the Bruce Hawkins Memorial Prize in Anaesthetics. He completed his medical studies (MB ChB) in July 1994.

During his early surgical training he was awarded the Bayer House Officer Prize, City Hospital, Birmingham.

Mr Grew achieved his Fellowship in Surgery in General from the Royal College of Surgeons of England (FRCS) in 1997 and was appointed to the West Midlands Higher Surgical Training Programme the same year. He obtained his Fellowship in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery of the combined Royal Colleges (FRCSOMFS) in May 2001

Whilst still undertaking his Higher Surgical Training he studied for Diploma in Clinical Oncology at the Cancer Research Centre in Birmingham to support his interest in Head and Neck Cancer.

In 2002 Mr Grew was appointed as Consultant in Oral and Maxillofacial and Head and Neck and Reconstructive Surgery.

Following his appointment Mr Grew continued to develop his interest in teaching and training. He is Honorary Senior lecturer in Surgery to the University of Birmingham and teaches both undergraduate and postgraduate students in both medicine and dentistry. He is an active trainer and tutor in the development of future consultants in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. He is a faculty member for the Care of the Critically Ill Surgical Patient Course (CCRISP) as well as managing and lecturing on educational courses for trainees and colleagues locally, regionally and nationally.

He is registered with both the General Medical and Dental Councils and is a Fellow of the British Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons (BAOMS), a member of the British Association of Head and Neck Oncologists (BAHNO) and Association of Dental Implantology (ADI). Mr Grew has also been a Trainees representative and Council member of the BAOMS and Specialist Advisory Committee of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery.

Outside of his professional interests Mr Grew likes to make time for his family. He is married with three children.

When time allows his other interests include Swimming, Fitness and Rugby. He is a keen Gardener and is interested in Art, Drawing and Caricature. He has recently been able to attend a short course on sculpting in Stone (a lot more hard labour than one might expect!) and hopes to develop this interest in sculpture further.
