Exeter Hip Fellowship

Speciality: Primary and revision hip arthroplasty and surgery of the young adult hip

Aims of Fellowship: The Exeter Hip Unit has an international reputation in the management of hip disorders. Fellows gain experience of modern cementing techniques for primary total hip replacements and learn techniques of acetabular and femoral reconstruction in complex primary and revision arthroplasty, with particular emphasis on the use of impaction bone grafting. Fellows also gain clinical skills in the assessment of young adult hip pathology and experience with both open and arthroscopic treatment. The Unit also has a very active Research Department and fellows are expected to complete projects during their fellowship. There is excellent scope for independent operating and, as such, prior experience of hip arthroplasty is essential.
