All Mr. Twyman's knee replacements have been recorded on the National Joint Registry since its inception in 2003, amounting to almost 2,500 in total. This shows his 5 year revision rate (when the original implant has to be removed and replaced) is 1.42% compared with a National average of 2.65%. Only one joint has been revised for infection.
Date collected independently by the South West Thames Elective Orthopaedic Centre Research Department shows that over a 14 year time span, the median 6 month and 2 year Oxford Knee Scores of the knee replacements he has performed is 42 (max possible 48) against a National average at 6 months of 35. Over the same period the median 2 year satisfaction of his knee replacements is 95% over this time. The National average is 80%.
On average he carries out 250 knee replacements, 60 anterior cruciate ligament reconstructions and 250 knee arthroscopies a year.
