Mr Farrar is a substantive Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at Leighton Hospital and has a private practice based at the BMI South Cheshire Hospital. He has a broad knee practice, including the management of knee ligament injuries and arthritis (including early onset), alongside a busy hip practice. His philosophy is to be able to offer a wide range of surgical and non-surgical options to provide his patients with an informed choice and a personalised management plan. He has particular interests in keyhole ACL reconstruction, partial (uni-compartmental) knee replacement, high tibial osteotomy, total knee replacement and both cemented and un-cemented hip replacement.
After qualifying in London, Mr Farrar started at St Thomas’ Hospital before posts in Leicester, Derby and Nottingham led to higher orthopaedic training in the East Midlands. He then progressed to become a Senior Registrar in the Mersey area and at Wrightington Orthopaedic Hospital, before undertaking further fellowship training in York. He has also undertaken a travelling fellowship in the USA with the renowned orthopaedic surgeon, Leo Whiteside.
I'm committed to participation in national surgical registries, collection of patient reported outcome measures (PROMS) and multi-disciplinary audit.
Areas of interest
Knee ligament injuries; sports injuries; knee osteotomy; patella realignment; partial knee replacement; total knee replacement; total hip replacement.
