About me

PROFESSOR RICHARD E FIELD PHD, FRCS(ORTH)

Richard Field qualified from the Westminster Hospital in 1980. After junior hospital posts in London, he completed a PhD in Cambridge; where he became a junior Fellow of Magdalene College. His specialist Orthopaedic training was undertaken in London, Cambridge and Melbourne.

In 1994 Richard was appointed as a consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon, with a special interest in hips, at St Helier Hospital, Carshalton. In his early years at St Helier, he introduced hip arthroscopy, hip preserving surgical procedures and many innovations in hip replacement surgery. He also established a research department and outcome programme. Since 2004, this research team has worked at both St Helier and the South West London Elective Orthopaedic Centre (the EOC) to develop a world renowned research programme with many national and international collaborations. In 2013 he was awarded a personal Chair at St George’s, University of London in recognition of his work at St Helier and the EOC.

Prof Field lectures widely and is a regular invited faculty member at many national and international Orthopaedic meetings and is a member of the Council of the British Hip Society and the International Society for Hip Arthroscopy. He continues to supervise MD(Res) and PhD students and has regular UK and overseas visiting Fellows in his team.

Besides being a pioneer of hip arthroscopy in the UK, Prof Field is one of the UK’s most experienced hip resurfacing surgeons and continues to undertake this procedure on active young men. Since 2008, Prof Field has regularly used the muscle sparing, direct anterior approach for his routine hip replacement surgery and is a regular faculty member on national and international training courses for surgeons learning this technique. In 2011, Prof Field undertook the world’s first GMK Sphere knee replacement and has been one of the key surgeons in the development of this new generation of knee replacement. Prof Field remains keen to involve as many of his patients, as possible, in long term outcome studies to properly monitor their progress and better understand the results of our surgery.
