Mr Giles Stafford is a London-based Consultant Orthopaedic Hip Surgeon with specialist expertise in sports-related hip injuries, minimally invasive and custom hip replacement (including hip athroscopy), femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) surgery, hip dysplasia (DDH), among many other kinds of hip and pelvis complaints. Having had extensive training and years of experience in hip and knee surgery, Mr Stafford's is a true expert when it comes to hip arthroscopy and sports hip injuries and even shares his insights and expertise through teaching hip arthroscopy courses.
After graduating with a medical degree in 1999 from Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospital (King's College London School of Medicine), Mr Stafford went on to train at Bart's and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry. Following this, he went onto to complete a specialist training programme in orthopaedics as part of the North West Thames Foundation School (Imperial College London). He also went on to complete fellowships at University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, Cambridge, Norfolk and Norwich.
Mr Stafford practices privately at Sport Hip London, where he works closely with leading sports physicians and physiotherapists to help patients receive the optimal care both before and after surgery. He is a firm believer in providing an individual and tailored approach to each of his patients, according to their wishes, needs and their particular injury. Mr Stafford is also equipped with the latest technology and specialist techniques when it comes to treatment, including 3D-printed instruments and customised implants, and often uses a particular technique called ‘Enhanced Recovery’ for patients requiring a hip replacement, which helps to minimise post-operative pain and complications.
Mr Stafford has also published widely in the field of orthopaedics and is often invited to speak at both national and international conferences.
