Dan Saleh is a Consultant Plastic and Aesthetic surgeon at Newcastle Hospitals and the current holder of the Cutler’s Surgical prize, an international prize for innovation in surgery. His work primarily involves head neck and facial surgery, with a particular interest in adult reconstruction.

Dan was a Yorkshire trainee and also spent time as a registrar in plastic and maxillofacial surgery in Cape Town. He was the microsurgery fellow at the Princess Alexandra Hospital in Brisbane. Prior to his consultant appointment he was one of the nationally appointed Cosmetic interface fellows and was selected to be one of the few Dutch facial plastic surgery fellows, with sponsorship from BAPRAS and BAAPs. It was during these posts he developed additional interests in complex septorhinoplasty and oculoplastic surgery that complement his reconstructive work. He attempts to maintain his interest in golf and paddle boards along the Northumberland coast with his family.
