Toby is a consultant Orthopaedic and major trauma surgeon with a sub-specialist practice in shoulder, elbow & sports trauma surgery. His NHS practice is at King's College Hospital, one of London’s major trauma centres. He manages the whole spectrum of shoulder problems as well as sports injuries and complex upper limb trauma, and specialises in performing arthroscopic (keyhole), arthroplasty (joint replacement) and trauma surgery.
Toby studied medicine at Oxford University (St. Edmund Hall) and completed his clinical studies at University College London. He undertook his early surgical training on the King's College rotation as well working at St. Vincent’s Hospital, Sydney. Following an additional year of research into shoulder surgery and in particular the analysis of outcomes he was appointed onto the London higher Orthopaedic training rotation where he became a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons.
Toby has also undertaken two recognised sub-specialist fellowship trainings in shoulder and trauma surgery. The first at the internationally renowned Cape Shoulder Institute in Cape Town and at the University of Stellenbosch, and the second at King's College Hospital – a nationally recognised upper limb and major trauma surgery fellowship. Toby has a particular in interest in outcomes, and consequently completed the Value Based Healthcare course at Harvard Business School. Leveraging this knowledge he has helped to re-design a number of NHS services and continues to provide healthcare advisory support to providers and commissioners of healthcare as a subject matter expert particularly in the field of musculoskeletal outcomes and value delivery.
Toby is active in the world of research and education having presented widely at national and international conferences and has published over 40 papers as well writing book chapters for international shoulder textbooks. He has designed and led several studies into restructuring and delivering Trauma and Orthopaedic services as well as producing shoulder research that led to the award of an MSc in Orthopaedics. He also provides peer review support to internationally recognised journals. He is part of the Kings College Hospital FRCS faculty and provides academic support to the department’s trainees. Toby also actively participates in charity work and is a keen sportsman with a particular interest in rugby and rowing having played at university, regional and national levels. However these days this is from the side-lines rather than on the pitch itself whilst supporting his children.
It is important that HCA is transparent about our relationship with those doctors who provide us with clinical guidance on delivering the best possible care to patients and operating our hospitals safely and efficiently. We set out here some of the ways in which we work together and the amount we pay this doctor for such services.
