Mr Jonathan Bell
Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon
MBBS FRCS(Eng) FRCS(Orth)
I enjoy managing sportsmen and women from the more sedate through to elite/professional athletes. I am expert in arthroscopic, ligament surgery and joint replacement techniques.
My clinical approach is focused on helping the active patient remain active.
I am a passionate skier and treat skiers of all levels – from beginner to Olympians. Skiers are referred to me from all over Europe.
NHS consultant 1998 to 2010. I made a number of innovative changes to practice including introduction of a drug treatment that made blood transfusion after knee replacement a rare event. Now in standard use across the UK. I was the first to undertake a number of now well established operations: patella femoral (PF) replacement for isolated PF arthritis, trochlearplasty for dislocating PF joint. I setup a Musculoskeletal triage service with extended role physios that allowed an extra 1000 outpatient appointments in the first six months. The service won a National Award.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Jonathan Bell at Spire include:
