Mr Jon Campion was born and brought up in Northamptonshire and was educated locally at Campion School in Bugbrooke.
He studied medicine at Saint Bartholomew's Medical School in London from 1991 and qualified in 1997. Following House Officer posts in London he spent a year working in Brisbane and also as a "Bush Doctor" in West Queensland.
On returning to the UK he completed his basic surgical training at the Royal United Hospital in Bath and at Frenchay Hospital in Bristol.
Mr Campion was appointed as a Specialist Orthopaedic Trainee in Oxford and completed his Orthopaedic FRCS exams in 2008. On completion of specialist orthopaedic training Mr Campion moved to Melbourne to undertake Advanced Surgical Training Fellowships:
- The Melbourne Knee Fellowship – Specialising in management of sporting knee injuries, ligament reconstruction and knee replacement surgery - working closely with both professional and amateur athletes
- The Bergman Arthroplasty Fellowship – Specialising in complex primary and revision hip and knee surgery – including the use of computer navigated surgery and “patient specific implants”
He returned to the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre in 2009 to take up the Oxford Senior Knee Fellow position – Specialising in partial and total knee replacement surgery and the management of cartilage injures and arthritis.
Mr Campion was appointed as a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon in Northampton in 2010.
His interests cover the full range of knee and hip surgery including arthroscopic ligament reconstruction, meniscal surgery, cartilage repair and partial or total joint replacements. He has a particular interest in the treatment of sporting knee injuries and management of degeneration and arthritis in younger patients.
He has recently worked closely with his anaesthetic and physiotherapy colleagues to develop an "Enhanced Recovery Programme" for his patients. This programme uses the latest anaesthetic, analgesic and surgical techniques to allow early mobility after surgery and a reduced length of stay in hospital.
