Mr. Matthew Barry is an experienced Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon who was appointed in 1998 to the Royal London Hospital.
His practice is equally split between children and adult orthopaedics.
He is happy to see and manage all aspects of children's orthopaedics including hip, knee and foot problems and conditions affecting the upper limb. Children with cerebral palsy are referred on to one of my paediatric orthopaedic colleagues. About 50% of his practice is paediatric orthopaedics and the remaining 50% is trauma (fractures).
He is fully trained and experienced in adult orthopaedics, including foot and ankle surgery as well as fractures and their complications, such as mal unions, non unions and limb length inequalities.
An honorary Senior Lecturer in the department of Medical Engineering at Queen Mary, University of London, he has a research interest in the mechanical properties of circular external fixators (Ilizarov and Spatial Frame) in the treatment of fracture non unions, mal unions and limb deformity, in both adults and children. He teaches medical students and medical engineering students as well as lecturing on postgraduate courses in Trauma and Orthopaedics.
He has a broad experience and research interests in the treatment of children and adult fractures and their complications. This includes disturbances of the growth plate, limb length inequality, mal-alignment and non unions.
Areas of interest
Ilizarov frames, spatial frames, limb lengthening, deformity correction, non unions, mal unions.
