Gareth graduated from Imperial College London, with a 1st Class Honours degree in Physiology, and a Medical degree with distinction, in 2003. He subsequently completed his basic surgical training in London via the Kingston/Guy’s & St.Thomas’/St.George’s Hospitals rotation, before commencing specialist Orthopaedic training at Imperial College London. He obtained the FRCS (Tr&Orth) in 2012.
Gareth is currently a Clinical Research Fellow working towards a PhD under the supervision of Prof. Cobb, based at the MSk Lab, Charing Cross Hospital. He is co-ordinating an international mutlicentre-trial into the use of 3D printed guides to perform osteotomies around the knee.
Gareth’s principal research interests are:
- Developing 3D surgical planning and 3D printed patient-specific guides to enhance surgical precision, accuracy, and cost-effectiveness.
- Novel web based patient-centered outcome scores.
- Using gait analysis as an objective measure of surgical outcome.
- Investigating patterns of cartilage loss and bone morphology in knee osteoarthrosis.
- Developing a simple device capable of objectively measuring anteroposterior knee instability.
