ACADEMIC / PUBLICATIONS

Michael is one of the leading academic Orthopedic surgeons. He is a Reader (Associate Professor) in Trauma and Orthopedics at the University of Bristol, one of the foremost musculoskeletal research units in the country. He holds 3 University degrees (PhD, MSc and a BSc) in addition to his medical degree (MB ChB) and fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons of England. He is lead for Trauma and Emergency Care research in the West of England and UK representative for Basic Science Research and Teaching to the main European Trauma and Orthopaedic Society.

 

He has published a very large number of academic research papers (over 130) with over 35 in the last year alone. He publishes in leading world journals, such as The Lancet and is one of the listed authors of the Annual Reports of the National Joint Registry for England, Wales, Northern Ireland and the Isle of Man. This is one of the most important annual publications in Orthopaedics, describing the outcome and treatment of patients from the world’s largest joint registry. He is co-editor of one of the landmark Orthopaedic Textbooks, Apley & Solomon’s System of Orthopaedics and Trauma and co-editor of 2 further textbooks in production.

 

Michael is invited to talk at a wide variety of national and international conferences. He is a member of faculty for courses and conferences including the Bristol Hip Arthroplasty Course, the British Orthopaedic Association and the European Federation of Orthopaedics and Traumatology. He delivers, on average, 20 talks at such conferences per year. 

 

Michael has a wide portfolio of research and as lead investigator has received over £2.8 million from the National Institute for Health Research, the main funder for healthcare research in the UK, alone since the start of 2018. He leads other funded research programmes valued at over £1 million for this period and is co-applicant or collaborator on further grants worth over £8 million. These include first-in-human studies of new treatments designed to improve patient care, researching joint replacement procedures, outcomes of surgery, the treatment of infection, hip fractures, ankle fractures and many more. He currently sits as chair or member on the trial steering or data monitoring committees for 4 major national multicentre trials. His research and teaching has been recognised with a number of prestigious prizes and awards.

 

His passion for teaching has led to him co-developing a Master’s level programme in Orthopaedics, which he currently co-directs. He also led on the development of the Orthopaedic component of the new medical school curriculum in Bristol. Along with colleagues, he set up the largest national course in minor surgery for GPs and a national musculoskeletal update day for GPs. He supervises up to 5 doctoral students at any one time, usually Orthopaedic trainee surgeons carrying out their own PhDs or MDs.
