Spire Southampton consultant voted one of the UK’s best knee replacement surgeons

01 October 2018

Earlier this year, we were delighted when Mr Philip Chapman-Sheath was voted one of the UK’s best knee replacement surgeons in a national publication.

The Daily Mail’s ‘Good Doctors Guide’ is particularly telling as it’s based on the principle that it is doctors themselves who are best-placed to know who are the most excellent specialists within their field; something that is often difficult for patients to find out.

The publication asked highly-regarded knee consultants:

‘If your own nearest and dearest were to need knee treatment, to whom would you refer them — and why?’

Mr Chapman-Sheath’s peers effectively voted him one of the top 1% of knee surgeons in the UK. This is not surprising as he performs over four times more revision surgeries than the national average and twice as many knee replacements, and his published outcomes for all primary and revision knee replacements remain consistently above the national average. He has also maintained an international reputation for the high standard of his surgery and regularly teaches and trains specialist knee surgeons worldwide on his techniques.

His colleagues also commented that he is a ‘very nice guy’ and we are very proud that Mr Chapman-Sheath is having such a positive impact on his peers and his patients.

Mr Chapman-Sheath holds regular outpatient consultations at Spire Southampton Hospital. If you are interested in making an appointment, please call 023 8091 4471
