Introduction
I have worked as a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon in Harrogate since 2006. I have a busy NHS practice with the vast majority of my surgery being Hip or Knee related. My specialty interest in Hip and Knee Surgery has enabled me to gain experience by performing large numbers of Joint Replacements and ‘keyhole’ or Arthroscopic Surgeries each year.
I enjoy the practice of ‘Revision’ or ‘Re-do’ joint surgery. This involves replacing the old worn out hip with a new one. Often severe bone loss, fractures, recurrent dislocation or infection have to be overcome. I believe the difficult challenges of ‘Revision’ surgery has also given me the necessary skills to ensure good outcomes in first time Hip/Knee replacements.
Private consultations at the BMI Harrogate or the Spire in Leeds enable me to spend the time required with my patients. I set aside 30 minutes for a new appointment so you have time to ask all your questions / concerns in a relaxed environment. We can explore all the treatment options before choosing the ideal management plan for you as an individual.

Masters Degree
My interest in Engineering led me to study a Masters Degree in Mechanical Engineering at Leeds University. In 2006 I earned a distinction for my research into bone cements used in Hip and Knee replacements.

Fellowships
A fellowship is generally a competitive attachment to work closely with a National or International expert. In 2004-5 I trained in a Specialist 6 months Knee Fellowship working for Nick London in Harrogate. I gained experience in Arthroscopic Knee Surgery and Minimally Invasive Knee Replacements. In 2005-6 I won a 1-year fellowship working in Australia for the Queensland University of Technology under Professor Ross Crawford and Dr Hugh English. In this busy post, I gained valuable knowledge and experience in Computer Assisted Hip and Knee surgery, Revision Joint Surgery, Hip Resurfacing, Hip Arthroscopy and Knee Arthroscopy. I now share the supervision of an international Hip Fellow.

Research
I enjoy research and have published in several medical journals. My work has led to presentations locally, nationally and internationally. My prizes include the GlaxoSmithKleine Orthopaedic Essay Prize in 2005 and the John Fitton Prize for Orthopaedic Specialist Registrars in 2006.

My recent publications include:

Does use of a "rim cutter" improve quality of cementation of the acetabular component of cemented exeter total hip arthroplasty?
Conroy JL et al
J Arthroplasty. 2009 Jan;24(1):71-6.

Current research:
