I have been a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon since 1998. My major interest is in hip and knee replacement and revisional surgery (ie re-doing loose or failed hip and knee replacements). My practice is now wholly hip and knee surgery and I perform over 100 hip and 100 knee replacements per year.
Areas of interest
Arthroplasty; Knee surgery; Hip replacement surgery; Knee replacement surgery
Current NHS consultant posts held
Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon University Hospital of North Tees
I am actively involved in research on techniques and outcomes in hip and knee replacement
recent publications include:-
-Functional outcome following aseptic single stage revision knee arthroplasty. Malviya A, Brewster N, Deehan D. Knee Surgery, Sports Traumatology, Arthroscopy 2011
Use of porous trabecular metal augments with impaction bone grafting in management of acetabular bone loss – early to medium term results. Borland S,
Holland J, Brewster N. Acta Orthopaedica 2012
The design of the acetabular component and size of the femoral head influence the risk of revision following 34 721 single-brand cemented hip replacements.
Jamieson S, Baker P, Mason J, Gregg P, Brewster N, Deehan D, Reed M. JBJS 2012
Both my length of stay and re-admission rates following surgery are below the national average.
The National Joint Registry shows that I perform above the average number of hip and knee replacements with below the average number requiring revisional surgery.
Of 583 knee replacements 88% were satisfied or very satisfied at 1 year after the surgery rising to 91% at 2 years. Of 499 hip replacements 95% were satisfied or very satisfied at 1 year and this was maintained at 2 and 3 years. 91% of revision hip patients were satisfied at 1 year rising to 94% at 3 years. 85% of revision knees were satisfied at 1 year rising to 100% at 3 years (though only 8 patients were assessed at 3 years)
