    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.

    Hip Replacement
    Giles performed a total replacement of my left hip at the end of March this year. From beginning to end the whole process has been remarkable with minimal pain or discomfort. Within hours of surgery I was walking around my room. A few days I was moving around home with no issues and after 3 weeks I no longer needed a crutch to walk outside. 10 weeks in it's hard to believe I've had surgery at all! The approach to the procedure of Giles and his team is exceptional and the treatment I've received has been second to none. I have no hesitation in recommending him if you are in need of a new hip, in fact I already have!

    I have been working with Giles to overcome my injury over the last 5 months and he has steered the process with great professionalism and vigour. As a hospital novice, I was nervous about the visit to the hospital as it was an unfamiliar environment but Giles and the team were very supportive and informative about everything that would be happening. The progress I have made since the injection is encouraging and i will continue to build strength in the hip in the coming months. I would have no hesitation in recommending Giles and the Help my Hip team.

    Hip Replacement
    I have been truly amazed at the process and the detailed explanation. When I first met Mr Stafford in November 20, I was apprehensive in having both hips undertaken at the same time, I have a number of friends who have had similar procedures and warned me that having both at the same time was not to be entered into lightly. Fortunately I didn't listen and pressed on regardless. From the moment I entered the Wellington in early January 21, had the operation in the morning, was out of bed in the afternoon, on a bike and walking around the ward. Everything was as Mr Stafford said it would be, the post op pain control was out of this world. I cannot say enough about the whole team. If you have any doubts....... don't.

    I can not fault Mr Stafford, he is an amazing surgeon. I can say this from first-hand experience and what his colleagues at the hospital have told me. Mr Stafford was quick to diagnose my issues and explained everything clearly and concisely.

    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.
