About me

Mr James went to Medical School in Nottingham and qualified with Honours in 1985. His subsequent Orthopaedic training was in Leeds and then Glasgow. Whilst in Glasgow he was Lecturer in the Academic Orthopaedic Department at Glasgow University working with Professor David Hamblen. Before taking up post as Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at the Glasgow Royal Infirmary in 1995 he completed fellowship training in hip and knee replacement surgery at Musgrave Park Hospital, Belfast working with David Beverland a leading authority on Joint Replacement Surgery.

Mr James re-located to Nottingham to continue his consultant career in 2000 taking up post at the City Hospital and Queens Medical Centre. He undertakes a large number of hip and knee replacement operations each year both in the NHS and privately at the Park Hospital and has developed a national and international reputation for revision and complex knee replacement. He has particular expertise and experience in high performance knee replacements for active patients and difficult revision knee surgery. He is at the forefront of knee replacement design and lectures widely on all aspects of primary and revision knee surgery around the world. He has also been invited to perform live surgery both in the UK and abroad, and is visited regularly in Nottingham by other surgeons wishing to learn his techniques.
