Background Information 
Professional profile:

Mr Hardy is a full-time private consultant in orthopaedics and trauma at Spire Bristol Hospital and the Cromwell Hospital. He is registered with all healthcare insurers and accepts private GP and sports injury clinic referrals.

Mr Hardy specialises in knee, hand surgery and sports medicine. He has published the outcome of a personally treated series of 100 footballers who had broken their shins during the sport. He now lectures to clubs on the prevention of injury in sport and has advised the British Standards Institute on protective clothing in sport. He is a member of the British Orthopaedic Association and British Orthopaedic Sports Trauma Association.

Mr Hardy was awarded the sought after MD in 1997. This was completed over a four year period and included the publication of a thesis on fracture healing. In this work Mr Hardy characterised two of the most accurate measurements of fracture healing available. Mr Hardy continues to publish research and articles on current orthopaedic practice. His research has been cited in standard orthopaedic texts and he has participated as an author in the reference book used by all UK surgical trainees. He has been invited to present his research following peer review at home and abroad.

Mr Hardy is now able to offer his patients, during consultation, a range of knee braces and supports:

Mr Hardy has had a broad training and wide experience in orthopaedic and trauma surgery. He has been awarded The Certificate of Completion of Specialist Training and is therefore privileged to be listed in the General Medical Council Specialist Register. He is a recognised 'provider' in the Advanced Trauma Life Support Scheme.

Mr Hardy is unable to see patients with Domestic BUPA, Pru Health or AXA PPP insurance unless they opt to self pay as these companies will not meet his standard fees or allow Mr Hardy to claim the shortfall from patients insured under these policies. All other internationally insured UK insured and self-pay customers are welcome to see John Hardy.
