My recent results

I’ve been a consultant for nearly 12 years and have kept  a personal database of every operation that I do. I record information about diagnosis, type of surgery and implants, and outcome data. These are my data from the last year (not including cases done by trainees under my direct supervision):

Total procedures:    243

  • Resurfacing: 42
  • Ceramic hip replacement: 68
  • Revisions: 42
  • Bilateral hip operations: 17
  • Average age: 64 (25-89)
  • Male/female: 98/145
  • Complications: no dislocations, one pulmonary embolism, one readmission for wound infection

This is a fairly typical year’s activity for me. I will publish more outcome data from previous years in the coming weeks, and hope that you will find this information useful when it comes to choosing which surgeon/operation is the right one for you.
