Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon, Honorary Associate Clinical Professor at Warwick University

I qualified as a doctor in Barcelona and came to the UK in 1993. Here I underwent basic surgical training and subsequently specialist training in Trauma & Orthopaedics in the West Midlands region. I was appointed as a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire (UHCW) NHS Trust in 2003.

Before becoming a Consultant I did a Fellowship in lower limb reconstruction at the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre in Oxford.

I am a high volume lower limb arthroplasty surgeon (hip and knee surgeon) performing hundreds of primary and revision hip and knee replacements every year. Over the last decade I have been performing between 3 and 4 times the number operations than the average lower limb replacement surgeon in the UK, please Read More Here.

In the field of hip replacement I do primary and revision surgery, I utilise both cemented and uncemented hips and I tend to use ceramic bearings for most of my cases. I am also familiar with most commonly used approaches to the hip including anterior, antero-lateral, posterior and Superpath and this gives me the flexibility to chose the right type of hip replacement, bearings and approach for each individual patient on the basis of his/her expectations, age and bone quality.

Because over the years I have treated lots of patients referred to me with failed hip and knee replacements, I have developed a clear understanding of what worked and particularly of what did not work for these patients and I believe that this has made me a better surgeon.

I have a special interest in failed Metal on Metal hip replacements and Resurfacings and some years ago I started a "Groin Pain" clinic at UHCW NHS Trust where I monitor, investigate and treat these patients. A big proportion of my earlier clinical research has been on this subject.

My other main area of interest has been the management of infected hip and knee replacements. Ten years ago I started a multi-disciplinary musculoskeletal infection group at UHCW that is currently well established and has lead to our Trust becoming the regional hub for the management of prosthetic joint infection accepting referrals from all the neighboring hospitals. My biggest contribution to the group was the introduction of one-stage revisions for infected hip and knee replacements. Most of my most recent research has been devoted to prosthetic joint infections.

I am currently involved in the development and implementation of an innovative way of improving the orientation of the hip replacement components based on pre-operative CT scans and X rays taken with the pelvis in different functional positions. This takes into account the fact that the pelvis is not a static structure but a mobile one that tilts forwards and backwards with movements such as rising from a sitting position or standing on one leg. This “dynamic” modeling of a planned hip replacement should minimize the risk of edge loading and impingement in this way prolonging the survival of the prosthesis and reducing the risk of complications such as dislocation.

As a consultant in a teaching hospital I am continuously involved in the teaching and training of medical students and junior doctors. In addition, for the last few years I have been running a very successful fellowship on lower limb reconstruction and I regularly entertain overseas visiting surgeons coming to observe my practice for short periods of time that can range from one day to 6 weeks.

I am an Honorary Associate Clinical Professor at the University of Warwick. Among other commitments I am the co-leader of the module "Managing Lower Limb Pain" that is part of a Masters in Medical Sciences run by the University and the co-convenor of the "Cadaveric Hip and Knee Surgery Courses" that form part of a series of cadaveric courses organized by Warwick Orthopaedics and the University of Warwick.

Over the years I have presented at many meetings, both nationally and internationally, and I have been the author or the co-author of a number of scientific papers published in high profile, peer reviewed, Orthopaedic journals. Read More Here.

I am married to Nuria, who is a GP, with whom I share three children. My family represents my biggest passion outside medicine my other interests being history and travelling.
