Mr Whittaker treats adult hip and knee problems of all ages. Treatments include arthroscopy (keyhole surgery), replacement (also called arthroplasty) and revision surgery for the hip and knee.
Following medical qualification in 1995, Mr Whittaker completed Basic Surgical Training in Liverpool, Chester & Shrewsbury achieving the Membership of the Royal College of Surgeons in 1999. Orthopaedic Higher Surgical Training was completed on the prestigious Oswestry rotation with the award of the Trauma and Orthopaedic Fellowship from the Royal College of Surgeons in 2005.
