Background Information 
Professional profile:

Mr Hugh Clarke has been a consultant in trauma and orthopaedics in the East Hampshire and West Sussex region since 1994. He graduated from the Middlesex Hospital in London and did his specialist higher surgical training in orthopaedics at the Wessex Orthopaedic Hospital and Southampton University Hospitals. He undertook a Research and Clinical Fellowship in lower limb joint reconstruction at John Hopkins University in Baltimore in 1988. Mr Clarke has published extensively on research in bone grafting joint replacement surgery, the biomechanic of ankle injuries and outcomes in revision hip replacement surgery.

Mr Clarke was involved in the design of two hip replacements in commercial use in the UK and the United States. Mr Clarke uses a wide range of implants for hip and knee replacement surgery. His philosophy has always been to use well tried and tested implants with a good research base. He has a particular interest in ceramic hip replacement. He has been one of the first users of the new MRI guided Signature system to optimise alignment and function in knee replacement for the last 5-10 years, particularly for young and active patients.
