    About

    Mr Giles Stafford is a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon specialising in hip surgery, in particular, Young Adult and Sports Hip Injuries. He qualified in 1999 from Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospital, followed by training by Bart’s and The London. He then completed an orthopaedic training programme at the North West Thames Foundation School (Imperial College London). Subsequently, he completed Fellowships at UCLH, Norfolk and Norwich and Cambridge.

    Mr Stafford is fully trained in hip and knee surgery and has had years of clinical experience adding to his field of expertise. His speciality includes hip arthroscopy and sports hip injuries and provides his expertise by teaching hip arthroscopy courses. Apart from his clinical work, he has published numerous peer-reviewed journals and regularly presents at conferences both nationally and internationally.

    Mr Stafford works at Sport Hip London and works with Sports Physicians and Physiotherapists, allowing patients to receive the best possible care before and after surgery. He also believes in providing each of his patients a tailored approach in treating whichever hip injury they have. With a good understanding of the hip problem, the correct treatments can be selected for the patient.

    He often uses specialist techniques called ‘Enhanced Recovery’ for patients who require a hip replacement, minimizing post-operative pain and complications. In addition, he uses 3D printed instrumentation and implants customised for his patients.

    I found Mr Stafford very approachable, informative and understanding. The attention I got from the first consultation, explaining the problem with my hips, up to the operation was first class. He explained the procedure in a clear and non jargony way. I would recommend him without a doubt to anybody who was having the some problems with their hip as I was.

    I had an excellent experience with Mr Stafford and all of his team; they were all very professional, organised and confident. During the diagnosis stage Mr Stafford described to me the reality of my condition and explained the surgical options. Whilst recognising it was quite a lot for me to take in he also gave me great confidence that I would be in a better, stronger position post surgery. His approach and manner gave me the comfort to proceed with the operation. On the day of the operation Mr Stafford clearly explained the steps that were about to happen and set my mind to rest before the operation. Everything went smoothly. My post op care in hospital was excellent and the whole team were well versed in their roles with strong attention to all the fine details. At 6 weeks post op my new hip feels fantastic and I am positively looking forward to the future.

    Hip Replacement
    Giles Stafford & his team carried out a bilateral hip replacement on me in February 2020. Every aspect of the process - pre-operative, operative, post-operative - was without fault; I had a full understanding of the objectives at every stage, and therefore complete confidence in Giles at all times. There is no doubt that Giles is at the top of his game; always engaged & engaging, never complacent - passionate about getting his patients back on the pitch (or wherever they want to return to).

    Mr Stafford is forthright, funny and informative in his approach and explanation of the overall process. I felt very reassured despite being hugely nervous and depressed about having to have a hip replacement. He was patient with my many questions and provided sensible rationale, backed up by experience and research.

    Mr Stafford was a pleasure to work with on my left hip replacement. Having had issues for 4 years, with the last 2 years being very painful with restricted movement. It was great to have expert advice in a friendly but realistic manner. During the whole process i was well informed and highlighted of the risks involved. The operation has been a game changer and it's so great to play sports with no pain and mostly importantly do the simple daily tasks of putting on socks with no hassle. Having a full hip replacement at age 40, I received a lot of comments from friends and family that i was too young. But honestly it's been so good to be back to 'normal'. The pre and post op support has been fantastic. Here is to a pain free and very active 2021!

    Giles is my go-to hip surgeon, and I've worked with Giles, looking after mutual patients, for many years. His care is excellent. Not only is he very thoughtful in his approach to decision making around surgery for his patients, he's technically superb, and his patients do brilliantly. Most importantly, he's a really nice guy - the kind of person who makes you feel at ease, and who really listens. I can recommend him unreservedly.
