As a result many of our treatments are currently suspended and we are reviewing all planned procedures and consultations.

Professional profile

I am a French hip and knee reconstruction surgeon, specialising in physiological implantation techniques (kinematic alignment). I received my degree from the University of Bordeaux before pursuing a three year joint reconstruction fellowship in Europe and North America. I was appointed as a consultant in 2013. My PhD was undertaken at Aix-Marseille University, on the kinematic alignment technique. I was mentored by prestigious personalities, who instilled a sense for sophisticated ‘à la carte’ physiological arthroplasty: Pascal-André Vendittoli (Montréal, Canada), Justin Cobb (London, UK), Thierry Judet (Paris, Fr), Stephen Howell (Sacramento, USA), and Sarah Muirhead Allwood (London, UK). Thanks to this and my initial expertise in the kinematic alignment technique for TKA, I pioneered the kinematic alignment technique for hip arthroplasty in 2017 and rationalised that of UKA in 2019.

To date I have performed over 800 hip replacements and 800 knee replacements over a seven year period in both my public and private practice between London and Bordeaux.

In addition to my clinical work, I am also proud to be an honorary lecturer at the University of Imperial College London.

I am an active member of the French Hip and Knee Society (SFHG), as well as the European Hip (EHS) and Knee (EKS) Societies. My research is orientated towards the assessment and refinement of the kinematic alignment techniques. In collaboration with Professor Vendittoli, we released a book on Personalised Hip and Knee Replacement in 2020 and launched the Personalized Arthroplasty Society (PAS), which aims to support, develop, teach, and promote sophisticated ‘à la carte’ physiological arthroplasty. Over the last few years I have intensively published on kinematic alignment techniques. I have become a well-recognised key leader in this field and spend time travelling worldwide to partake in congresses as a faculty member.
