Dr. Samantha Tross: First Black Female Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon in the UK.

 
 

Dr. Samantha-Tross

Only 6% of all surgeons in the United Kingdom are female, and Dr. Samantha Tross is one of them. She’s the first Black British woman to become a consultant Orthopaedic surgeon. Samantha was born in Georgetown Guyana on June 30, 1968 to Sammy and Gwendolin Tross. The second of their four children, she went to St. Gabriel’s Primary School before her diplomat father was assigned to England and the family relocated.

Samantha obtained a Bachelor of Medicine/Bachelor of Surgery degree from University College London in 1992 and entered the male-dominated field of orthopaedic surgery. Her surgical training was obtained at a number of London Teaching hospitals including St George’s Hospital, The Royal London and Guys & St Thomas’s. She also received Fellowship training overseas at world renowned centers in Toronto, Canada and Sydney, Australia, gaining further experience in Primary and Revision Hip and Knee Replacement, Computer assisted Arthroplasty, Hip Resurfacing and Knee Arthroscopy.

Samantha’s practice reflects the skills gained in her general Orthopaedic training, where she has experience in diagnosing and implementing treatment on most Orthopaedic pathologies.  Her success is based on her high standard of providing excellent and efficient service for her patients at all times. She is a surgeon but a doctor foremost with a holistic approach to her patients.

Congrats to Dr.Samantha Tross. These medical professionals abroad cannot work in Guyana under a brain drain management system. These people are much more advance to even think of serving Guyana. Look who we have as Minister of Health? Volda Lawrence, a quack and a racist pig.

Well done, young lady.

As with Ameela Singh who is mentioned in another thread.  Tremendous personal sacrifices  are made for a person to achieve higher educational standards.

Some people left Guyana to study medicine in England, but their dedication was lacking  and some ended up as homeless alcoholics on the streets of London, where two died.

Congratulations to these ladies.

i wonder if she can operate on you change you from a ass to a donkey

There are many persons of Guyanese heritage who achieved excellence in their respective fields of study. However this does nothing for the people of Guyana who continue to suffer under the leadership of jackass Granger. I doubt that Guyanese still in Guyana are sitting around feeling vast pride at the expats achievements, they are more concerned about the state of the country under jackass Granger.

 

 The fact that Guyanese can achieve so much outside of Guyana sadly reflects on the successive governments who drove them out in the first place. There was a massive brain drain during the PNC era, during PPP time this continued due to lack of opportunity but those leaving were mostly the uneducated like lilmohan et al.
