Mr Tim Waters is a consultant orthopaedic surgeon with a specialist interest in hips and knees.

Mr Waters provides a specialist trauma and orthopaedic service at West Herts Hospitals NHS Trust, operating at Watford and St. Albans Hospitals.

His practice focuses specifically on complex orthopaedic surgery. He receives referrals from colleagues and consultants from other hospitals for the management of difficult cases, particularly problems with previous hip and knee replacement surgery. He has been awarded five clinical excellence awards.
