Mr Philip Stott specialises in treating hip disorders ranging from sports men and women or someone having their first hip replacement to the patient who has problems with their fifth hip! He is fascinated by how hip surgery and treatment have improved over the last decade, and enjoys guiding patients through the complexity of modern hip surgery.
After attending medical school in London he did most of his basic surgical rotation in and around Brighton. He completed his DPhil at Sussex University in Biomechanical Engineering. This work has changed how surgeons are trained.
He then went on to train on the St. George's Hospital Orthopaedic rotation. He completed a trauma fellowship in New Zealand and then joint replacement and pelvic fracture fellowships at St. George's. He has lectured at international hip surgery courses.
During his training Mr Stott quickly became interested in hip problems. He was attracted to pelvic fractures as a way to gain expertise with pelvic/hip anatomy and disorders.
He has an interest in the treatment of infected joint replacements and in patients with massive bone loss. Mr Stott also performs hip replacement surgery for the NHS as well as dealing with problem involving hip trauma. He regularly operates on patients with complex fractures around the pelvis, joint replacements and legs.
In 2012 Mr Philip Stott published internationally on the treatment of patients with fractured hips. He spoke at the last British Hip Society meeting in Sheffield on infected hips.
