Mr Pedro Foguet went to medical school in Barcelona, Spain, and came over to the UK in 1993. Here he did his basic surgical training in the West Midlands and after clearing his exams and becoming a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh joined the Birmingham Specialist Registrar rotation. After registrar training and before his appointment as Consultant to University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire NHS Trust he did a Fellowship in Lower Limb Reconstruction at the prestigious Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre in Oxford.
As a Consultant at UHCW NHS Trust he rapidly became subspecialised and he is what could be described as a high volume hip and knee replacement surgeon performing well over 300 primary and revision hip and knee operations each year. Mr Foguet has a particular interest in the management of prosthetic joint infections and problem metal on metal hip resurfacings and replacements. These constitute his two main areas of research and have lead to a number of publications and presentations both nationally and internationally.
UHCW is the main teaching Hospital linked to Warwick Medical School and Mr Foguet is involved in regular teaching of undergraduate and postgraduate students at a number of courses that run throughout the year. Because of his commitment to medical education Mr Foguet was awarded a Honorary Associate Clinical Professorship by Warwick University.
Among other positions of responsibility Mr Foguet is the current Chairman of the Orthopaedic Department at UHCW NHS Trust and he is the Orthopaedic representative on the Medical Advisory Committee at BMI The Meriden Hospital.
