Mr Tim Waters is a consultant orthopaedic surgeon with a specialist interest in hips and knees. He received specialist orthopaedic training at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital in Stanmore and subsequently spent a year in Australia on the Sydney Hip and Knee Surgeons' international fellowship.
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.
At Spire Harpenden and Bushey Hospitals, Mr Waters sees and treats many orthopaedic conditions and fractures. His sub-speciality interests are hip and knee surgery including knee and hip replacement, partial knee replacement, arthroscopy (keyhole surgery), ligament reconstruction, complex revision joint replacements and patient-specific knee surgery.
Mr Waters takes a holistic approach to his practice and ensures he takes the time to explain things clearly in easy-to-understand terms and allows plenty of time for patients to ask questions and discuss concerns. This allows patients to make the best treatment decisions possible.
Mr Waters is also involved in research looking into the life-span of hip and knee replacements and the design of new implants. He continues to publish and present research at international meetings.
