Orthopaedic Surgery Group

We are one of the largest joint replacement centres in the UK. Headed by Professor Ashley Blom, our orthopaedic research team includes experts in orthopaedic surgery, long-term pain, physiotherapy, epidemiology, statistics, health economics, psychology, systematic review, qualitative methods, public and patient involvement and outcome measurement.

Our clinical and health services research facilities are set alongside a suite of five modern laboratories which support routine mammalian cell culture, biochemistry, molecular biology and stromal cell work to facilitate translational research. Health services research is led by Prof Rachael Gooberman-Hill.
