I would like to hear from you directly if you have any questions or comments.

I try to focus on surgery for the hip and knee only in an attempt to maximise efficiency but I am happy to consult on all orthopaedic conditions.

If you are assessing someone for referral the following is the best imaging;

  • Suspected hip arthritis : XR only. Not MRI. The XRs needed are AP of both hips and a lateral of the affected hip.
  • Suspected knee arthritis: XR only. Not MRI. The XRs needed are Rosenberg, lateral,  skyline and a long leg standing view of the affected knee.
  • Non-arthritic knee problem: MRI
