I am a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon. Raised and educated in Menai Bridge, Anglesey, I embarked on a surgical career at the University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff and Morriston Hospital, Swansea.

In 2003, I was accepted onto the Oswestry / Stoke Orthopaedic training programme before spending a further year gaining sub-specialist fellowship experience in hip and knee surgery at the world-renowned University Hospital, Ottawa, Canada.

Rwyf yn lawfeddyg orthopaedig ymgynghorol. Cymro Cymraeg wedi ei a’i fagu ym Mhorthaethwy, Ynys Mon, aeth Mr Barton I Goleg Meddygaeth Prifysgol Cymru yng Nghaerdydd cyn cychwyn ar ei yrfa lawfeddygol yn Ysbyty Athrofaol Caerdydd ac Ysbyty Treforus, Abertawe.

Yn 2003, cafodd ei dderbyn i raglen hyfforddi Orthopedic Gobowen a Stoke on Trent cyn gwario blwyddyn ychwanegol ar Gymrodoriaeth i hyfforddi ymhellach mewn llawfeddygaeth o’r glun a’r benglin yn yr uned fyd-enwog yn Ysbyty Athrofaol Ottawa yng Nghanada.

My interests lie in hip replacement, knee replacement, keyhole surgery of the knee (Arthroscopy) and enhanced recovery protocols allowing patients to get up and go home earlier after joint replacement surgery. I also perform therapeutic injection therapy for painful conditions of the hip and knee. I currently perform about 100 hip replacement and 100 knee replacement procedures per year.

Mae ei ddiddordebau yn cynnwys amnewid y glun a’r benglin, llawfeddygaeth twll clo o’r benglin a phrotocolau “adfer gwell” sy’n galluogi cleifion i gerdded a gadael yr ysbyty yn gynt ar ol clun neu benglin newydd. Mae o’n perfformio tua 100 o gluniau a 100 o bengliniau newydd pob blwyddyn.

I was appointed as a substantive NHS consultant at Leighton Hospital, Crewe in 2011 and my time there I became the Clinical Director of Trauma and Orthopaedic surgery for three years, before becoming the Chief Clinical Information Officer (CCIO) for the trust. A role I still hold. I commenced my private practice in Cheshire in 2012.

Cafodd ei benodi fel llawfeddyg ymgynghorol yn ysbyty Leighton yn Crewe yn 2011 ac yn ei amser yno, bu yn Gyfarwyddwr Clinicgol yr uned am dair blynnedd cyn symyd ymlaen i fod yn CCIO (Chief Clinical Information Officer) I’r ysbyty. Cychwynodd ei yrfa preifat yn Swydd Gaer yn 2012.
