Messages for loved ones and keeping in touch

During your stay in hospital you will meet a number of different members of staff.  All members of staff wear name badges, but if you are not sure who someone is or what they do, please feel free to ask them to introduce themselves and explain what they do. 

If you have any questions about your treatment, please ask a doctor or a nurse.

There are lots of opportunities for you to get involved with the Trust, from volunteering to attending our public meetings, our Annual General Meeting or our hospital open day which is held every year.

Trauma & orthopaedic surgery

Sub Specialty

Knee surgery

Key Achievements:

After graduating from the University of Leeds, Jeremy completed his basic surgical and higher orthopaedic training in the Yorkshire region, before being appointed to a substantive consultant post at Queen Alexandra Hospital in July 2014.

Jeremy has also spent a year on one of the world's most prestigious knee fellowships with Dr Peter Myers in Australia. As the clinical lead for knee surgery at PHU, Jeremy specialises entirely in the treatment of knee conditions and is able to offer a wide variety of treatments including arthroscopic techniques and ligament reconstruction, joint saving surgery, and partial and total knee replacement. 

Jeremy strongly believes in maximising the use of non-surgical treatments prior to considering surgery. He utilises tried and tested surgical techniques but likes to introduce new methods when there is good reason or evidence to do so. An example of this would be the use of robotics in knee surgery, which was established as a first in the NHS at QA in 2018. 

He also leads the orthopaedic research department at QA and the collaboration with the University of Portsmouth. They run a variety of projects including investigating the use of stem cell treatments in the knee, advances in ACL reconstruction and innovations using technology and artificial intelligence in health care.

When he's not working, Jeremy enjoys spending time with his family, and keeps fit by running, cycling and sailing if there's ever a chance.
