Mr Philip Stott
Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon
MB, BS, FRCS (Tr. & Orth.), MRCS, DPhil
I specialise in treating hip disorders, ranging from sports men and women or someone having their first hip replacement to the patient who has problems with their fifth hip! I am fascinated by how hip surgery and treatments have improved over the last decade, and enjoy guiding patients through the complexity of modern hip surgery.
After attending medical school in London, I did most of my basic surgical rotation in and around Brighton. I completed my DPhil at Sussex University in Biomechanical Engineering. This work has changed how surgeons are trained.
I then went on to train on the St George's Hospital Orthopaedic rotation. I completed a trauma fellowship in New Zealand and then joint replacement and pelvic fracture fellowships at St George's. I have lectured at international hip surgery courses.
During my training I quickly became interested in hip problems. I was attracted to pelvic fractures as a way to gain expertise with pelvic/hip anatomy and disorders.
I have an interest in the treatment of infected joint replacements and in patients with massive bone loss. I have also performed knee arthroscopy and replacement surgery for the NHS as well as trauma involving a hip or knee replacement. I regularly operate on patients with complex fractures around the pelvis, joint replacements and legs.
In 2012 I published internationally on the treatment of patients with fractured hips. I spoke at the last British Hip Society meeting in Sheffield on infected hips.
The Montefiore Hospital is only able to provide Covid-19 tests to patients undergoing surgery at our hospital. Covid-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service.

Outside of work my interests are spending time with my family, mountain biking, and music.
