Personal profile

Dr Michael Khoo is a Consultant Musculoskeletal Radiologist working at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital. Working at a world-renowned specialist centre, he has experience in a broad range of musculoskeletal imaging and image-guided intervention at a tertiary referral level for orthopaedic services frequently not available elsewhere. 

Following his Radiology training at St Mary’s Hospital, London, he completed a post-CST Fellowship in Musculoskeletal and Spinal Imaging at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, Stanmore.

His regular clinical practice covers a wide breadth of specialist orthopaedic services including but not limited to:

  • Musculoskeletal soft tissue and bone sarcoma 
  • Complex upper and lower limb joint reconstruction
  • Complex spinal service (spinal tumours, adult and paediatric deformity reconstruction)
  • Specialist hip debris disease (including metal on metal)
  • Peripheral nerve injury service
  • Paediatric orthopaedic services (surgical and medical)
  • Spinal cord injury service
  • Rheumatology

As the Co-Lead Radiologist for the multidisciplinary team (MDT) meetings for several of the services above and a contributory Radiologist for the remainder, he has the benefit of regular exposure to the most complex cases but, most importantly, combined cross-speciality learning from his numerous expert colleagues for continual professional development.  

A frequent invited lecturer to national and international conferences and educational courses, he is also widely published in radiology journals with numerous peer-reviewed publications, most frequently in Skeletal Radiology, the official journal for the International Skeletal Society and Society of Skeletal Radiology.
