Background Information 
Professional profile:

I graduated from Manchester University but did my higher orthopaedic training in Edinburgh. In 2000 I was the Arthroplasty Fellow in Queen Elizabeth Hospitals, Adelaide, South Australia. I have since won two travelling fellowships- the Edinburgh Travelling Fellow ( 2001) and the Zimmer Research Travelling Fellow ( 2002).

I have particular interests in primary and revision hip and knee surgery including minimally invasive total hip replacement and hip resurfacing but my practice includes the whole gamut of lower limb orthopaedic surgery.

I have been the Clinical Governance and Audit Lead, as well as Clinical Director for orthopaedics at Lancashire Teaching Hospitals. The quality of Mr McLauchlans contribution has seen him awarded Four Clinical Excellence points.

Personal profile:

Mr McLauchlan has a wife and three sons and plays golf and squash when he can.  He took up skiiing relatively late and is still intact so far!  He provides medical cover for Preston Grasshoppers and is Vice Chairman of Preston Swimming Club.
