Mr Sunil Auplish Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon

Mr Sunil Auplish FRCS (Tr&Orth)
Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon

Sunil obtained his medical degree from Guy’s and St.Thomas’ Hospitals in London, and trained to become an Orthopaedic Surgeon on the Oxford training programme.  During this time, he found the treatment of shoulder, elbow, wrist and hand conditions particularly rewarding, and was inspired to become an Upper Limb surgeon.

He was privileged to perform complex open and arthroscopic (keyhole) surgery of these joints during his advanced training Fellowship at Wrightington Hospital, the internationally famous Centre of Excellence for Upper Limb Surgery, prior to becoming a Consultant in 2009.

In 2011 Mr Auplish was awarded the prestigious British Elbow and Shoulder Society Travelling Fellowship by competitive interview.  This took him to six centres of excellence across the U.K. and Europe to visit pioneer surgeons who performed innovative surgical techniques designed to treat challenging problems.  He also gained his European Diploma for Hand Surgery and is now a Consultant Supervisor for trainees undertaking the British Diploma in Hand Surgery.

Sunil was appointed as a Consultant Surgeon in Essex in 2009 and was delighted when the opportunity to become a Consultant Surgeon in York arose in 2017.

He was nominated for a PRIDE award during his time in Essex and has been nominated for a STAR award in York.  Both awards are for Outstanding patient care above and beyond the call of duty.

Sunil has a strong interest in teaching and training, and has designed and led orthopaedic surgical courses. He trains junior surgeons to perform hand, wrist, elbow and shoulder surgery, and is an Honorary Senior Lecturer at Hull York Medical School.  He thoroughly enjoys his work as a Faculty lecturer teaching fellow orthopaedic surgeons, junior doctors, physiotherapists, nurses and plaster technicians.

He has a great love of music and plays the guitar, piano and drums – when his family and neighbours permit!  Free time is spent happily running around after 3 children and a Dalmatian with an unquenchable appetite, trying to get fit by running and swimming, and watching F1 races (usually the highlights, but live on TV if lucky).
