Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Tom Symes at Spire include:
I am a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon who specialises in Hip and Knee Replacements. I also have a special interest in enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS). This means that the patients I operate on receive the most up to date anaesthetic techniques to control pain and are able to mobilise quickly and safely after surgery. This results in a lower rate of problems post-operatively and enables patients to be discharged home earlier. I trained as a doctor and surgeon in Leeds, Yorkshire, and the North East of England. I then undertook specialist training in hip and knee replacement at the Golden Jubilee National Hospital in Glasgow. Here I trained specifically to perform navigated (computer aided) knee replacement.
I am Clinical Lead Consultant at Hull and East Yorkshire NHS Hospital Trust and lead for ERAS in the trust. I have published several papers, contributed to two best selling orthopaedic textbooks and lectured at national meetings on enhanced recovery. I treat arthritis, soft tissue and sports injuries of the hip and knee.
I am the Clinical Director for the Trauma Division at Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust, a Major Trauma Consultant and Honorary Lecturer with Hull York Medical School.

I was brought up in Derbyshire and then moved to Leeds for my medical school training. I trained as a surgeon in Scarborough and then the North East including Newcastle, Middlesbrough and Carlisle. I moved with my family to Scotland for a year and now have settled in East Yorkshire. I am married with 4 young children who keep me very busy.Back to top
