Mr Burston qualified from the University of Bristol in 2000 with Honours in Medicine and with a 1st class honours degree in Anatomical Sciences.
He undertook his basic surgical training rotation in Oxford, before undertaking an invaluable year as an orthopaedic registrar in New Zealand. On his return Mr Burston was selected at Bristol for his 6-year higher surgical training rotation in Trauma and Orthopaedics.
Following becoming a fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of England in 2010, Mr Burston secured prestigious fellowships in Perth, Australia and at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York.
He took up his consultant post at the world renowned Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital in January 2013.
Mr Burston is widely published in peer review journals, mainly in the field of hip replacement surgery. He is the principal investigator in a number of national research trials.
He enjoys teaching, serving as faculty on many national and international courses and has a Diploma in Medical Education from the University of Bristol.
In 2019 he was selected as the sole British representative for the American Hip Society prestigious Rothman-Ranawat travelling fellowship. This six week venture took him to 10 centres of excellence across North America. Here he was able to interact and share knowledge with some of the world’s most prominent specialists in adult joint reconstruction, further developing his practice. He lectured in each site on some of his work covering prosthetic joint infection.
He currently sits on a national advisory panel for the development of revision hip networks.
