Clinical interests

Emyr’s area of surgical interest is Hip and Knee arthroplasty (i.e. Joint replacement) and Knee arthroscopy (Key hole surgery). In particular, Emyr is referred patients with complex problems requiring complex primary joint replacement of the hip and knee as well as revision joint surgery for failed hip and knee joint replacement’s. Through his experience and training, Emyr will provide alternative, harder bearings in hip replacement under the appropriate clinical conditions. Therefore, as well as hip resurfacing, Emyr also provides ceramic bearing prostheses for his younger patients. For the younger patients with knee arthritis, Emyr will provide Patello-femoral joint and Unicompartmental knee joint replacements under the appropriate clinical conditions. This is complemented by his experience in knee arthroscopy, and he is able to provide “key hole surgery” for his patients that do not require knee joint replacement
