Mr Chris Paliobeis
Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon
After graduating from Medical School, I completed my Surgical and Orthopaedic training in Athens, Greece. Following completion of specialist training, I moved to the UK where I undertook several distinguished Fellowships in: Trauma (AO Foundation) in Leeds, Musculoskeletal Oncology at the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital in Birmingham, Knee Surgery at York Hospital, Hip Surgery / Hip Arthroscopy at the Richard Villar Practice in London. Following my Fellowships I held the post of Locum Consultant in Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge and at the Royal Berkshire Hospital in Reading, before being appointed as a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at the Hereford County Hospital in 2012.
My elective practice is mainly devoted to the treatment of problems of the hip and knee joint. My specialisation lies in the surgical treatment of young patients with hip disorders and I am able to offer an effective surgical option to help such individuals return to full activity.
I maintain a keen interest in teaching and am on the faculty for a renowned international course which trains surgeons on surgical techniques in hip arthroscopy. I review regularly for The Bone and Joint Journal (formerly known as the "Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery (BR)").
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Chris Paliobeis at Spire include:
Borderline hip dysplasia Biomechanics of osteotomies around the hip Sports injuries of the hip Hip arthroscopy and femoroacetabular impingement Hip and groin problems in the young adult Recovery following joint replacements Pre-operative planning in orthopaedic surgery
