Mr Simon Bick
Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon
MBChB, FCS (SA), MMed (SA), FRCS (Eng) T+O
I perform hip and knee primary and revision joint replacement surgery. I also perform knee arthroscopic procedures including ACL reconstructions and joint injections. I have a patient-centered approach and pride myself on personal, professional and surgical attention to detail.
I complete over 100 joint replacements a year in addition to a full trauma service at Southmead Hospital. I use implants with excellent survivorship verified by the National Joint Registry (NJR) and Orthopaedic Data Panel Evaluation (ODEP) databases. My surgical techniques and outcomes are published online through the NJR. I am actively involved in training the next generation of orthopaedic surgeons in the region.
I trained in Cape Town, South Africa, qualified as an Orthopaedic Surgeon there in 2011, and moved to Bristol in 2012 to undertake specialist fellowship training. I undertook three full years of fellowship training – in knee surgery, hip surgery and Major Trauma Centre trauma surgery at Southmead Hospital, with the guidance of several prestigious local surgeons.
I completed my FRCS (Eng) Trauma and Orthopaedic specialist examinations and was awarded my Certificate of Completion of Training (CCT) in 2015. I have been on the GMC specialist register since 2015. I work at Southmead Hospital, North Bristol NHS Trust, as a hip, knee and trauma consultant surgeon.
I am the Clinical Governance Lead and Audit Lead for the department of Trauma and Orthopaedics at Southmead Hospital, North Bristol NHS Trust. I am an active colleague appraiser of clinical practice at Southmead Hospital.

Having moved to Bristol in 2012 for a one-year fellowship, I found myself drawn to the beautiful city of Bristol and surrounding countryside, not to mention the lovely wife, family and two cats that followed. To balance a busy work schedule I enjoy several sports, barbeques, walks and good old-fashioned quality time with the family.
