Professional profile

Mr Simon Tilley is a consultant orthopaedic surgeon with specialist training in hip and knee replacement surgery. He trained at University College London Hospitals NHS Trust. During his training he was also awarded a BSc in Tumour Biology before qualifying in 1999. He completed his basic surgical training in Wessex in 2002 and then spent six months working at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital in Stanmore, London. Following this he worked as a research registrar at Southampton General Hospital and completed a doctorate (DM) for his thesis on the use of stem cells in orthopaedic surgery. He joined the Wessex Orthopaedic training programme in 2005 and from an early stage focused on hip and knee surgery, in particular working with teams involved in complex revision work.

Before taking up his consultant post at Southampton General Hospital, Simon undertook three fellowships. He worked as a senior hip and knee fellow in Sydney with the Specialist Orthopaedic Group, one of the most prestigious joint replacement fellowships available to visiting surgeons. Two further fellowships followed in Southampton concentrating on complex hip and knee replacement surgery. Mr Tilley employs a truly multidisciplinary approach to hip and knee surgery. He believes passionately that the combination of patients taking an active role in the decision making process together with dedicated nurses, therapists and anaesthetists improve outcomes. He has developed an expertise with many types of hip and knee replacement designs and is well placed to offer the most appropriate design to his patients. This includes gender specific knee implants and the use of advanced bearings including ceramics, which are hoped to last considerably longer than traditional designs. Mr Tilley collects patient reported outcome measures (PROMS) on all of his joint replacements.
