Some of the principal treatments carried out by Professor Richard Field at Spire include:
I qualified from the Westminster Hospital, London in 1980. After house jobs at St Stephen's Hospital in Chelsea, Senior House Officer posts at University College Hospital and the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, I completed a PhD thesis at Cambridge University. My specialist orthopaedic training was undertaken at the Whittington and Westminster Hospitals in London, Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge, Colchester and Black Notley Hospitals in Essex and the Royal Children’s Hospital in Melbourne.
In 1994, I was appointed to St Helier Hospital, Carshalton, as a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon, with a special interest in hip surgery. Since 2004, my NHS practice has been based at the South West London Elective Orthopaedic Centre where I am the Director of Research. I am one of the UK's most experienced practitioners in arthroscopic hip surgery, muscle sparing hip replacement and complex hip replacement. I undertake approximately 500 hip operations per year.
Since 2008, I have regularly used the muscle sparing, direct anterior approach for my routine hip replacement surgery and I am a regular faculty member on national and international training courses for surgeons learning this technique. In 2011, I undertook the world’s first GMK Sphere knee replacement and I have been one of the key surgeons in the development of this new generation of knee replacement. I am keen to involve as many of my patients as possible in long term outcome studies to properly monitor their progress and better understand the results of our surgery.
