Professor Ashley Blom

Orthopaedic Surgeon

MBChB, MD, PhD, FRCS, FRCS (Tr&Orth)

Specialises in

I have been rated by Expertscape as one of the top 10 experts in the world on hip replacement and the leading expert outside of the USA. I have published over 300 scientific papers mainly focused on how to perform joint replacement as safely and effectively as possible. I specialise in both hip replacement and revision hip replacement for a variety of musculoskeletal conditions. I provide a fast, friendly and efficient service focused on the individual needs of each patient.

I am a fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of England and a member of both the British and European Hip Societies. I was awarded two doctoral degrees by the University of Bristol, one in making artificial bone from ceramics and the other in preventing infection after joint replacements. I am currently leading a £2million government funded research programme into improving the patients' experience of joint replacement. The first phase of this is a trial into decreasing peri-operative pain.

I have published over 50 peer review scientific articles on various aspects of Orthopaedic Surgery in leading international journals.
