Professional profile

Mr Duncan Learmonth was appointed as an Orthopaedic Knee and Shoulder Consultant Surgeon at the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital in 1993.

In 2004 he established the Birmingham Knee and Shoulder Clinic at the Priory Hospital with Marcus Green and Samir Massoud.  In 2007 he transferred to full time private practice, but maintains an Honorary NHS Contract at the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital and Honorary Clinical Lecturer at the University of Birmingham.

Mr Duncan Learmonth is an established authority in the Knee and Shoulder Surgery in the UK. He is a regular faculty member at National meetings; teaching at Regional Orthopaedic Training Programs: Oswestry, Sheffield, Leicester, Cardiff, Cambridge and Birmingham.

He is a regular demonstrator in Arthroscopic Surgery Workshops of the knee and shoulder for UK and overseas Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeons. He has previously been a Surgical tutor for the Royal College of Surgeons of England.

He has been invited guest speaker at the Norwegian, Greek and Egyptian Orthopaedic Association Meetings. He has published some thirty papers on knee and shoulder conditions. He has contributed to book chapters on knee trauma and articular cartilage disease. 

The development of the Birmingham Knee and Shoulder Clinic has been a long time ambition as it helps patients and referring practitioners to identify surgeons with subspecialty expertise. The clinic’s educational evenings and web site have proved a great success with our referring practioners. The future will be extend our educational programmes and to expand our clinic base.

He is also part of The Midland Orthopaedic Practice.
