Surgeon Jeremy Reynolds shortlisted for Dedication Award

14/09/2021

Consultant Spinal Surgeon Mr Jeremy Reynolds, from Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, has been shortlisted for an award by the Bone Cancer Research Trust.

'The Bone Idols 2021' shortlist was drawn up from 150 nominees, including fundraisers, healthcare professionals, surgeons and researchers.

Mr Reynolds was shortlisted among the 'Research and healthcare professional nominees' in the Dedication Award category - for "dedication to a career committed to spinal sarcoma services and driving improvements in the treatment or spinal sarcoma patients. He is one of the UK's leading spinal surgeons for bone sarcoma and goes above and beyond for his patients every day."

His passion for treating spine sarcoma came from his surgical mentor, Charles Fisher, in Vancover, Canada. After completing his fellowship in Canada, Jeremy built a service alongside his consultant colleagues dedicated to advancing the treatment of spine sarcoma. Oxford University Hospitals now has one of only a few specialist primary bone sarcoma centres in the UK, with a catchment area of around 10 million people in South West and South Central England.

Mr Reynolds has published widely, and presented both nationally and internationally, and is Principal Investigator for a worldwide primary bone sarcoma research project (PTRON), which examines bone sarcoma outcomes.

He and his team continue to enhance the delivery of care to sarcoma patients, with projects ranging from video consenting and studies into the psychological impact on patients and families, to the development of a peer-to-peer sarcoma buddy support system.

He was nominated by his colleague, OUH Nurse Consultant Gerard Mawhinney, who said: "His dedication to bone sarcoma is acknowledged by both patients and peers. He would make an excellent winner of the Dedication Award."

Other members of his team have been quick to contribute their praise for his work. Mr Chrishan Thakar, Consultant Spinal Surgeon, said "Jeremy is an inspiration to all, tirelessly putting the interest of his patients and team first." Dr Ruxandra Mihai, Consultant Anaesthetist, described him as "an exceptional gifted surgeon, natural communicator and an inspiring colleague," and Ms Stana Bojanic, Consultant Neurosurgeon, said he was "...passionate about the spine sarcoma service."

Mr Reynolds said: "I'm very proud to receive this nomination and do so on behalf of all the members of the extended spinal sarcoma team whose combined efforts have led to some truly remarkable outcomes for this very complex patient group."

Winners will be announced at an event on 6 November 2021 at The Royal Armouries in Leeds.
