Mr Philip Mitchell
Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon
MB BS, BSc (Hons), FRCS (Orth), FRCS
I was educated at Epsom College and St Mary's Hospital, Paddington. My registrar training took place on the South West Thames (St George's) Training Scheme. During the five years of training prior to my fellowship, I set up and ran what is now the largest database worldwide of revision hip procedures performed using an extensively Hydroxyapatite coated implant. This work has led to several international presentations, including several in North America and one in New Zealand.
My specialist areas of interest are in joint replacement of the lower limb and revision hip and knee replacement. I offer a tertiary referral service for complex hip and knee procedures, particularly management of the infected hip and knee replacement, management of significant bone loss in revision surgery and periprosthetic fractures.
I spent a year on fellowship in Vancouver. This is one of the premier Joint Reconstruction Fellowships in the world. In Vancouver, I wrote several Instructional Course Lectures for the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons. I was involved in the setting up of the academy online textbook and wrote original papers in several areas of revision surgery.
Outside orthopaedics my interests are mainly sporting, especially rugby, cricket, skiing and mountain biking.
