Areas of interest
During his training Panos, has developed an interest in hip pain in all age groups. He manages hip pain non surgically, and surgically, aiming to preserve the natural joint, wherever possible.
Panos's recent experience involves minimally invasive hip surgery. He utilises a new approach, (DIRECT SUPERIOR APPROACH). This approach spares ALL the muscles that are essential for normal gait, which means that the rehabilitation is faster and the chances of developing abnormal gait (Trendelenburg gait) are significantly reduced. This in conjuction with a small scar (minimally invasive surgery) improves satisfaction, speeds up return to baseline activity and reduces the length of stay in hospital.
Current NHS consultant posts held
Panos been appointed as the Associate Clinical Director for Heart Of England NHS Trust. In his role he is developing new pathways and policies that aim to make the department more modern, and efficient so that it can provide an excellent standard of care for the local population.
