Mr Tony Helm

Orthopaedic Consultant

MB ChB (Hons), MRCS (Eng), FRCS (Tr & Orth)


Specialises in

I am a lower limb and trauma consultant practicing in the North West of England.

I see a wide variety of hip and knee disorders, and I have a particular interest in joint replacement surgery in the younger patient. I perform in excess of 100 primary hip and 100 primary knee replacement procedures per year, and I have particular expertise in partial knee replacement.

In my NHS practice I take on all manner of complex joint replacement surgery including surgery for periprosthetic fractures and revision joint replacements. I am well experienced in arthroscopic (keyhole) knee surgery and anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction.

I was born and bred in Preston, completing my A levels at Cardinal Newman College and then graduating with Honours from the University of Manchester. I trained in the North West and Nottingham. I became a consultant in March 2007. My NHS and trauma practice is with Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

Personal profile

Away from work I am a keen cyclist, cycling over 3,000 miles per year and I challenge myself once per year to an "...in a day" ride, such as Coast to Coast in a day (150 miles), Edinburgh in a day (185 miles), Scotland and Back in a day (213 miles) and London in a day (245 miles). Another sporting pursuit of mine is skiing, and I take one or two trips per year to enjoy the slopes.

I am also a keen musician, and play piano and guitar to keep myself, and occasionally others, entertained. I enjoy spending time with my wife and two children, the older of whom I am pleased to say is following in my footsteps and studying medicine at Manchester University.
