Mr Anthony McWilliams
Consultant orthopaedic surgeon
BSc MBBS FRCS MD
I am a consultant orthopaedic surgeon specialising in hip and knee surgery. My practice includes routine and complex joint replacements as well as redo surgery (or revision) of hip and knee replacements, keyhole surgery to the knee and injections of both joints.
I recently completed a visit to the Princess Elizabeth Orthopaedic Centre, where I learned about the muscle preserving SPAIRE approach which I have brought to my practice.
Following my undergraduate training at the Royal Free Hospital, London, I returned to Yorkshire for basic and higher surgical training. I undertook sub-specialist fellowship training as the John Charnley Fellow, training under Professor Peter Kay and Professor Martyn Porter, at Wrightington Hospital and subsequently as a British Orthopaedic Association Transitional Fellow at Airedale Hospital. After my fellowship training I was appointed as a consultant trauma and orthopaedic surgeon in Barnsley Hospital where I am now clinical lead.
I have recently completed a research based doctorate where I studied leg length inequality following hip replacements and am a visiting senior research fellow to the University of Leeds and NIHR Leeds Biomedical Research Centre with numerous publications and presentations. Through my research I have developed a device to improve the accuracy of X-rays taken prior to hip replacement.
I also have an interest in sports medicine. I am a medical officer to Yorkshire Carnegie Rugby Union and Leeds Rhino Rugby League where I am a pitch-side doctor. I have recently been appointed to the medical faculty of the Rugby Football League.
To ensure that I maintain the highest standards, all my joint replacement operations are submitted to the National Joint Registry and my surgeon specific data is available to view online.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Anthony McWilliams at Spire include:
Orthopaedics - hip and knee
