Professional profile

Mr Burwell is a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at Circle Bath Hospital. He is nationally-acknowledged for hip surgery and referred to by consultant surgeons from around the country.

He qualified as a doctor from the University of London and undertook specialist surgical training in Orthopaedics and trauma on the North West Thames Rotation, based at the Royal Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, completing his final year of training at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital at Stanmore. He went on to receive advanced training in adult hip reconstruction as the Arthroplasty Fellow to Professor Don Howie at the University of South Australia.

Mr Burwell has developed expertise in all forms of adult hip reconstruction and joint replacement including the use of cemented and un-cemented hip replacement implants and modern materials such as metal and ceramic bearings.

He undertakes revision hip replacement surgery and has a decade of experience of the use of hip resurfacing (e.g. the 'Birmingham' hip, an option for younger and more active patients).

Mr Burwell continues with a trauma practice at the Royal United Hospital, in particular specialising in surgery for complex fractures of the hip and for fractures around previous hip replacements implants (i.e. peri-prosthetic fractures).

Mr Burwell is highly acclaimed for expertise in hip replacement and revision surgery. To find out more click here.

Complex hip fractures
Primary/revision hip replacement implants (including hip resurfacing, uncemented and cemented hip replacements)
Bearing surfaced including ceramic, metal and highly cross-linked polyethylene.
Primary specialist interest in the management of all adolescent, young adult and adult hip conditions including arthritis and hip impingement

Mr Burwell is currently involved with a British orthopaedic company in the development of a novel type of hip implant for use in younger patients and, with the same company, one of a group of surgeons involved in early clinical trial of a new bearing surface.

The hope is that this new bearing surface will wear less and lead to an increase in the longevity of hip replacements and reduce the need for 're-do' revision surgery.
