Mr Tim Waters
Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon
MB BS, MRCS, FRCS (Tr & Orth)
I am a consultant orthopaedic surgeon with a specialist interest in hips and knees. My practice focuses specifically on complex orthopaedic surgery. I receive referrals from colleagues and consultants from other hospitals for the management of difficult cases, particularly problems with previous hip and knee replacement surgery. I have been awarded five clinical excellence awards.
At Spire Bushey Hospital, I see and treat many orthopaedic conditions and fractures. My sub-specialty interests are hip and knee surgery including knee and hip replacement, partial knee replacement, arthroscopy (keyhole surgery), ligament reconstruction, complex revision joint replacements and patient-specific knee surgery.
I received specialist orthopaedic training at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital in Stanmore and subsequently spent a year in Australia on the Sydney Hip and Knee Surgeons' international fellowship. I provide a specialist trauma and orthopaedic service at West Herts Hospitals NHS Trust, operating at Watford and St Albans Hospitals.
I take a holistic approach to my practice and ensure I take the time to explain things clearly in easy-to-understand terms and allow plenty of time for my patients to ask questions and discuss concerns. This allows patients to make the best treatment decisions possible.
I am also involved in research looking into the life-span of hip and knee replacements and the design of new implants. I continue to publish and present research at international meetings.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Tim Waters at Spire include:
COVID-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service at Spire Bushey Hospital.
