About Jenny Hicks
Jenny’s medical training began with university medical schools at Cambridge and Oxford in the United Kingdom. She completed basic surgical training in Oxford before emigrating to New Zealand with her future husband in 1999, where she completed advanced orthopaedic surgical training in 2007.
Jenny returned to the UK for sub-specialist hand and upper limb fellowships at the Great Western Hospital in Swindon, the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre in Oxford, and The Hand Clinic in Windsor. She became the first ever non-British trainee to be accepted for the prestigious British Diploma in Hand Surgery, which she completed successfully in March 2010.
She now works in Whakatane at the public hospital, as well as in Private Practice at East Bay Specialist Centre.
