Academic background

Mr. Parratt is a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at Colchester General Hospital. His practice focuses on primary and revision hip/knee replacement, arthroscopic surgery and soft tissue knee reconstruction (including ACL reconstruction and patellofemoral realignment procedures).  He has further expertise in partial knee replacement, patient specific knee replacement, stem cell autografting and massive endoprosthetic replacement. He is experienced in managing all general trauma, particularly focussing on the lower limb.

Mr. Parratt trained on the internationally renowned Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital (Stanmore) (RNOH) rotation. He became a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh in 2015 and completed a specialist fellowship at the RNOH under the tutelage of Mr. Richard Carrington in 2016/17.

During his training, Mr. Parratt rotated through local district general hospitals including Southend University Hospital and Broomfield Hospital.  In addition, he gained complex orthopaedic training in tertiary centres such as Great Ormond Street Hospital and the RNOH. Prior to being selected for the RNOH training rotation, Mr. Parratt worked in hospitals in the UK and New Zealand, including exposure to major trauma at the Royal London Hospital.

Mr. Parratt has a keen interest in research as a compliment to his clinical practice. In 2008, was awarded a research fellowship at the RNOH under Professor Tim Briggs (his mentor).  His research included looking at the effectiveness of autologous chondrocyte implantation, other cartilage regeneration procedures and management of musculoskeletal cancers. He has presented expert papers at national and international conferences.  He has published extensively and regularly supervises research projects.  He is passionate about teaching and regularly engages with undergraduate students and postgraduate surgeons in training.

Away from work, he enjoys walking and generally getting into the “great outdoors”.  Having played rugby to international standard as a youth, he continues to follow the game, although only watching!
