He graduated from the Royal Free Medical School in 1998 which included a bachelor of sciences degree in Anatomy at University College London. After 3 years of training in general surgery he became a member of the Royal College of Surgeons of England (MRCS) in 2001. He then embarked upon his plastic surgical training which included a 2 year higher post-graduate Doctorate in Medicine (MD) carried out at the Kennedy Institute of Rheumatology, part of Imperial College and the RAFT institute of Plastic Surgery. His research was sponsored by a Royal College of Surgeons Research Award and examined the causes for tendon and joint damage in hands affected by Rheumatoid Arthritis. He has published extensively in both scientific and clinical journals including the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) and the American and European Journals of Hand Surgery.

Mr Sivakumar completed his plastic surgical training in the UK which has included over 10 years of trauma and elective hand surgery experience in plastic surgical units including  Mount Vernon, East Grinstead, and Guy’s and St Thomas’ hospitals. After this he embarked upon a comprehensive programme of sub-speciality training in congenital hand surgery at Boston Children’s Hospital, Massachusetts, the Red Cross Children’s Hospital, Capetown and the ‘Institut de La Main’ Paris. As a result he has trained with numerous specialist paediatric hand surgeons from both orthopaedic and plastic surgical backgrounds in world renowned centres of excellence.
