Background Information 
Professional profile:

Mr David Farr qualified from Guy's and St Thomas's Hospital, London in August 2000. He completed a basic surgical training incorporating neurosurgery, plastic surgery and critical care medicine, in addition to orthopaedic and general surgery, before entering the Wessex Orthopaedic Training Programme as a specialist registrar in 2006.

Following a one year international fellowship in lower limb arthroplasty, navigational arthroplasty and hip arthroscopy in Brisbane, Australia, Mr Farr took the opportunity to work as a locum consultant in Cairns, Far North Queensland for six months, experiencing orthopaedics and trauma in the tropics.

Mr Farr has worked as a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at Queen Alexandra Hospital, Portsmouth since July 2013 and was appointed there to a substantive post in July 2014.  He has a busy elective and trauma practice specialising in hip and knee replacement surgery and arthroscopic procedures.

Personal profile:

Mr Farr's keen interest in sports include rowing, sailing and mountaineering, have taken a backseat recently due to his young family.  Encouraging their interest in outdoor pursuits is a full time activity when not engaged in his clinical activities.
