Research & Innovation

Design surgeon of the Olympia Anatomic Hip Replacement, which now has a 15 year follow up. The 10 year results were presented at the British Orthopaedic Association and reported a 98.6% survival (which compares favourably with all implants on the National Joint Replacement Registry. This research was carried out with Professor Steffen Breusch who is now Head of Orthopaedic Surgery at the University of Cologne, Germany.

Design surgeon for the JRI Evolution Mini Hip Replacement.

Research Relationship to Clinical Practice:

His main clinical interests are primary and revision hip and knee replacement and sports injuries of the knee. He has maintained a cautious approach to some new technologies and is concerned about the promotion of any new joint replacement with limited follow up and avoided hip resurfacing and large metal on metal joints. A stance which has been supported by many poor results that have been reported in the literature.
