William Bartlett is an experienced Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon with practices in both Central and North London. His specialist interest is in the surgical and non-operative management of hip and knee complaints.
William trained in and around the capital and undertook his sub-speciality training at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospita together with centres of excellence in Europe and North America. During this time, he developed his interest in hip & knee replacement surgery together with joint preserving techniques. He sees a diverse spectrum of patients ranging from teenagers to nonagenarians with lifestyles ranging from sedentary to former Olympians.
Non-surgical treatment options will always be thoroughly explored initially, often through close working with expert physiotherapists, osteopaths, radiologists, sports physicians and rheumatologists. When surgery is needed, Mr. Bartlett will offer each patient a highly personalised approach, ensuring that they remain firmly at the centre of the decision-making. As many of his patients are young and active, his practice has evolved to use when possible, modern bone preserving techniques and minimally invasive surgical approaches. Particular interests include the use of 3-D computer planned surgery, custom made prostheses and partial joint replacement surgery. He leads the enhanced recovery program within his NHS hospital and is committed to ensuring that each patient recovers from surgery as quickly, safely and fully as possible. He has performed over 2,000 hip and knee procedures and is currently conducting research into the performance of newly introduced hip replacement prostheses. Mr Bartlett is responsible for the mentoring of surgeons in training and reviews scientific manuscripts for the Bone and Joint Journal. He is a faculty member of Postgraduate courses at the Royal College of Surgeons of England, Royal Society of Medicine and Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital.
