Mr Stuart Roy
Consultant Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgeon
MB ChB, MPhil (Cantab), FRCS Tr & Orth (Ed)
Having finished my trauma and orthopaedic training I undertook a fellowship in Lower Limb and Sports Injuries in Adelaide, South Australia. I've now been a consultant in trauma and orthopaedics for 11 years with a specialist interest in the above. I provide orthopaedic services to a number of premiership and regional rugby clubs, particularly with knee injuries and have gained a lot of experience in the treatment of acute soft tissue sports injuries.
I'm involved in a one in six on-call rota treating a broad spectrum of acute trauma and personal injury. On the elective orthopaedic side I treat only limb orthopaedic conditions with specialist interest in knee surgery including ligament reconstruction, meniscal surgery including transplant, articular cartilage surgery, partial, bespoke and total knee replacement.
I've performed several hundred partial knee replacements and ACL reconstructions. I have performed thousands of thousands of knee arthroscopies. I have also treated thousands of trauma patients during my training and in the last 11 years as a consultant. I am currently one of only two surgeons in Wales who offer patients the option of a customised knee replacement to suit the anatomy of your knee.
I have been clinical lead in my NHS department and support my clinical director on a local trauma and orthopaedic board. I have also been audit lead for my department. Furthermore I represent my hospital on the All Wales Training committee.
I'm Honorary Clinical Tutor at Cardiff University, course gonvenor for a number of courses at Welsh Institute for Minimal Access Therapy (WIMAT), and Honorary Surgeon to Pontypridd RFC and Crawshays RFC.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Stuart Roy at Spire include:
Customised knee replacements
