Mr Hugh Clarke

Orthopaedic Surgeon

MBBS, FRCS (London)


Specialises in

  • Hip replacement
  • Knee replacement
  • Computer guided knee replacement
  • Knee arthroscopy
  • Joint injections

I use a wide range of implants for hip and knee replacement surgery. My philosophy has always been to use well tried and tested implants with a good research base. I have a particular interest in ceramic hip replacement and have one of the lowest hip revision rates in the UK, being in the top 3% on the National Joint Registry. I also now offer the new piriformis muscle-sparing hip replacement approach.

I have been one of the first users of the new MRI guided Signature system to optimise alignment and function in knee replacement for the last 5-10 years, particularly for young and active patients. I am now a validated consultant to use the new MAKO robot-assisted knee and hip replacement.

I have been a consultant in trauma and orthopaedics in the East Hampshire and West Sussex region since 1994. I graduated from the Middlesex Hospital in London and did my specialist higher surgical training in orthopaedics at the Wessex Orthopaedic Hospital and Southampton University Hospitals.

I undertook a Research and Clinical Fellowship in lower limb joint reconstruction at John Hopkins University in Baltimore in 1988.
