Hip replacement


I have dedicated my career to hip replacement surgery.

My decision to focus in this way has seen me carry out more than 600 hip replacements a year using an approach that combines safer surgery and fast recovery, meaning less pain and a shorter stay in hospital for you.

Life-long mobility

I use the Corail® Pinnacle® hip replacement system, which allows for the accurate reconstruction of your hip’s individual anatomy. The stem and cup are made of titanium with a specialised coating, which encourages your bone to grow directly on to the implant. The result is a strong biological bond with low complication rates and potentially life-long good function for the vast majority of patients – even with high levels of activity.

When the bone is less strong, or soft, I’ll use the DePuy® C-Stem system to cement your implants in place. Both the C-Stem and Corail Pinnacle systems have achieved extremely good long-term results, as shown on the National Joint Registry.

Bilateral hip replacements

If you have arthritis in both hips, a bilateral hip replacement can offer you a safe and rapid recovery. In fact, the recovery time following a bilateral hip replacement procedure often matches that of unilateral procedures. Typically, you’ll stay in hospital for about three days following surgery, and after six weeks you should be walking freely and able return to normal activities.

To make sure you’re in the safest possible hands during the procedure and beyond, I adopt a teamworking approach, giving you the added expertise of specialist anaesthetists, nurses and physiotherapists throughout your treatment. 

Revision rates

When talking about revision surgery, I always like to remind patients that a hip replacement is an extremely successful procedure, with very low failure rates.

The National Joint Registry also collects data on hip replacement failure to give patients a clear picture of the most successful implants and surgeons. I’m proud to say that I have one of the lowest revision rates on the NJR, with a very low failure rate relative to other surgeons performing hip replacements.
