Background Information 
Professional profile:

After graduating from Edinburgh University Medical School in 1986, Mr Lawrence trained at Wrightington Hospital in Wigan – where Sir John Charnley pioneered the first hip replacement – and at The Princess Elizabeth Hospital in Exeter, where major advances in hip design and surgical technique were achieved.  He also spent a year at the University of Virginia, Charlottesville, USA, as a surgical and research fellow. 

Mr Lawrence has been a consultant at the Heart of England Foundation Trust and Solihull’s Spire Parkway Hospital since 1999 and is responsible for the training of orthopaedic surgeons.  He is leading a team of consultants who are committed to making Solihull a centre of excellence for orthopaedic surgery.   

Specialising in the treatment of painful hip and knee joints in patients of all ages, Mr Lawrence consults at Spire Parkway Hospital on Monday mornings, Tuesday evenings and Friday evenings. Mr Lawrence’s passion is primary and revision hip replacement and patients now come from all over the country for his expertise.  The Exeter Hip Replacement that he uses has excellent long term results, with more than 90% of hip joints functioning up to and beyond 39 years, and currently has the best patient outcomes according to the National Joint Registry for England and Wales.  In 14 years as a consultant, Mr Lawrence has revised just one implant in 4000 for loosening and wear.
 
Mr Lawrence’s expertise includes complex hip surgery in young patients with dysplasia (malformed hip joints) and patients are often referred to him when they develop problems with existing hip replacements, including infection, dislocation and pain.  He uses the latest techniques to rebuild damaged bone when hip replacements become loose.  For younger patients not ready for hip replacement or resurfacing, keyhole surgery can be beneficial, since painful spurs and loose bodies can be removed and areas of damaged cartilage treated.
 
Trevor Lawrence also specialises in early arthritis of the knee joint, which he treats using a Maioregen membrane – the latest technology for restoring bone and cartilage loss – and for advanced arthritis of the knee he uses the patient specific Signature Knee Replacement System.  This technique results in very low revision rates since it utilises computer aided planning to optimise alignment of the limb for each individual patient, thereby prolonging the lifespan of the knee replacement, improving function and aiding recovery. 

Mr Lawrence's recent achievements include:

• Awarded excellence points for quality of care given to patients undergoing hip replacement, knee replacement and revision hip replacement at Solihull Hospital on the NHS
• Convener for the Exeter Hip Course held for the first time at Solihull Hospital with speakers and orthopaedic surgeons attending from all over Britain
• Winner of the Naughton Dunn Award in 2011
• Regularly presents research and is a guest speaker at national and international conferences on orthopaedic surgery

Personal profile:

Mr Lawrence's hobbies include golf, bridge and watching his three boys play sport.
