About me

My focus is on the care of patients who suffer from arthritis. I am an international expert in the treatment of hip and knee arthritis and am one of only 100 members globally of the International Hip Society, comprising the world leading surgeons in this field. I also specialise in joint replacement in patients with rheumatoid arthritis.

I qualified and trained in Sheffield. I undertook a PhD in the science of joint replacement at the University of Sheffield, which I completed in 2001. I received my specialist training in the treatment of hip and knee problems in Sheffield and at the Wrightington Hospital (where modern hip replacement surgery was first developed). I also underwent specialist fellowship training in hip and knee replacement surgery in Canada, Switzerland, and Japan.

I am Chair of the Research Committee of the National Joint Registry that monitors all joint replacements done in England, past chair of Trustees for the British Orthopaedic Research Society, a registered charity Charity and its Past President. I am also a trustee of the Paget's Association that cares for patients with bone disease.

My research focuses on why people get arthritis and how best to treat it. My research interests include genetics and patient outcomes after joint replacement. I developed the patient decision tool for joint replacement – a tool that allows patients to understand how much better they might expect to be after a joint replacement. This tool is freely available at

I and my students have received many international awards, including the British Orthopaedic Association Robert Jones Gold Medal and Association Prize, Fellowship of the International Combined Orthopaedic Research Societies and the Orthopaedic Research Society, The British Hip Society McKee Prize, National Osteoporosis Society and American Society for Bone and Mineral Research.
