Personal profile

Professor Griffin gained a first class degree in physiology in Cambridge, and studied medicine in Oxford. He trained as an orthopaedic surgeon in Oxford and the United States and then returned to Cambridge to study and research the clinical epidemiology of musculoskeletal disease.

Professor Griffin was appointment as the foundation professor at Warwick Medical School in 2002, where he led the development of a new academic department of trauma and orthopaedic surgery. The department has a clear focus on the assessment of clinical effectiveness in orthopaedic surgery.

He is responsible for a large research and teaching team running one of the largest portfolios of orthopaedic surgery research in Europe and training surgeons and clinical academics of the future.

Professor Griffin maintains a busy clinical practice and has a particular passion in the practical application of hip arthroscopy to address problems in young, active or athletic people. He has spent 15 years working in the area of hip arthroscopy and hip-preservation surgery, which has become almost his entire clinical practice and a major part of his research.

As an internationally recognised expert, he teaches and lectures across the globe and draws patients from all over the world.

In his spare time Professor Griffin commands a Territorial Army Infantry Battalion and is a keen mountaineer.
