About me, Professor Ali Ghoz

Are you a patient who is experiencing hip or knee pain?

Maybe you're unsure as to whether or not surgery is right for you, or even which kind of surgery you should have?

Perhaps you've been told that you need a hip or knee replacement, but don't know who is the right surgeon for you?

Whatever your issue is, I understand that all patients have different needs and I believe strongly in personalised care for all.

I work closely with physios and other clinicians to ensure end-to-end care if you are going through surgery, and I'm able to see people at short notice.

I'm an Honorary Professor of Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgery,  specialising in minimally invasive hip and knee surgery. I have a specialist interest in complex hip and knee surgery with an emphasis on computer-guided surgery.
