He attained his higher surgical training with a national training number in Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgery on the Leeds rotation in Yorkshire. He has also done two prestigious fellowships in lower limb arthroplasty at The Chapel Allerton Hospital in Leeds and Warwick Hospital.

Mr Magra has been working as a consultant in the NHS since February 2018. He is a results-oriented skilled consultant orthopaedic surgeon with substantial experience in elective orthopaedic and trauma surgery with a strong background in hip and knee replacement surgery.

Mr Magra is an innovative researcher who has presented and published several peer reviewed papers, a book chapter, and has presented his work in numerous international and national meetings.

He has published one of the largest series in the world of ‘reverse hybrid’ total hip replacements, a new classification system for uncemented hip replacements, and is the first person in the world to describe the presence of ion channels in human tendon cells. More recently, in 2021, Mr Magra has also had a paper published that desribes a new classification system for undersized femoral stems in total hip replacements.
