Dr Buttery qualified from Cambridge and Oxford University in 1992 and undertook junior doctor training in Oxford, then in Cambridge, before moving to Edinburgh to complete his specialist training in respiratory medicine. Whilst there he developed an interest in lung cancer and studied the regulation of integrin affinity in the molecular biology of lung cancer.

This resulted in a number of original research articles in peer-reviewed journals and the award of PhD in 2006. In 2005 he studied the application of endobronchial ultrasound in Heidelberg under Prof. Felix Herth, supported by the European Respiratory Society, before taking up post in Papworth.  At Papworth, his role is focussed on the diagnosis and management of lung cancer and malignant mesothelioma, including endobrochial treatment and pleural disease management.  He has a special interest in smoking cessation, which he hopes to broaden to the wider community, and he was until recently a member of the BTS specialist advisory group on smoking cessation. Additionally, he acts as a busy respiratory and general physician at Hinchingbrooke Hospital in Huntingdon.
