David was appointed as a consultant in 1996 at Stepping Hill Hospital, Stockport after completing orthopaedic training in the North West. His main clinical interest is in lower limb arthroplasty, especially the hip.
Over the years as a consultant, David has built up his practice to specialise in arthroplasty in younger patients and in revision hip replacements. By using different implants such as ceramic joints and resurfacing, he is able to offer each patient a choice in their surgery. He uses a small incision technique where possible, and aims for a safe rapid discharge in the majority of patients.
In order to ensure high quality, David is part of a team of hip surgeons who regularly discuss and share results. In addition to his interest in hips, David also performs knee replacements, arthroscopic knee surgery and most aspects of trauma.
