Revision Hip Surgery
I am a consultant orthopaedic surgeon with a special interest in hip surgery. I was appointed to Southampton University Hospital NHS Trust in 1998. I did my medical training at Oxford and trained in orthopaedic surgery at the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre in Oxford, The Royal Adelaide Hospital and The Royal Orthopaedic Hospital, Birmingham. At the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital I was trained in the technique of Birmingham hip resurfacing, which I introduced into the Wessex Region. When I do a hip operation, I use a variety of implants, both cemented and uncemented depending on the underlying problem and technical requirements. I am also experienced in less invasive surgical techniques.
I am a Fellow of the British Orthopaedic Association and a member of the British Hip Society. I instruct on courses for surgeons who want to do hip resurfacing and am part of an international surgical team developing a ceramic hip resurfacing. I specialise in primary and revision hip replacement surgery, and hip resurfacing. My particular interests are: Hip replacement and hip resurfacing for younger patients. Hip replacement for complex problems such as dysplasia and Perthesa disease. Every year I do about 250 primary hip replacements and 40-50 revision operations. I audit the results of my operations and conduct research projects on the outcome of hip resurfacing, and the use of large bearings in hip replacement surgery. I have recently set up. Southampton Orthopaedics: Centre for Arthroplasty and Revision Surgery. at University Hospital Southampton. This major new Centre uniquely combines expert surgery with groundbreaking research into the mechanics and biology of joint replacements. The Centre was set up to deal with the problem of failed metal on metal hips, which have caused a huge amount of controversy in the last few years. I have particular expertise in the surgical treatment of these hips and Southampton is now one of the leading centres for revision surgery.

Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon, University Hospital SouthamptonBack to top
Looking after my patients is hugely important to me, and being a hip surgeon is a way of life. I spend as much time as possible with my young family, and try to fit in playing the piano (badly). I've managed to go skiing in the last couple of years and am intermittently a fair weather sailor on friends boats. There's not much time left for anything else!Back to top
