Mr Guy BMedSci (Hons), MBBS, MRCS (Eng), Dip SEM (UK & I), FRCS (Tr & Ortho) has been appointed as a consultant trauma & orthopaedic surgeon with a specialist interest in knee surgery since 2011. He took over the complex and challenging NHS practice of Steve Bollen, an internationally renowned sports knee surgeon. He has a deep understanding and experience of knee conditions, performing hundreds of procedures per year ranging from simple key-hole procedures to complex multi-ligament reconstruction.
Mr Guy studied at the University of Newcastle upon Tyne undertaking an extra research degree and being voted into the position of President of Newcastle Medical Society. He then studied in both the North East and Yorkshire, receiving a national award from the Royal College of Surgeons of England for surgical training. He tailored his training to work closely with skilled, experienced knee surgeons during higher surgical training. He polished off his education with two prestigious knee fellowships working initially for Mr London in Harrogate and finishing with a further year with Mr Sutton and Mr Brown in Sheffield. He also complimented his training with a diploma in Sports & Exercise Medicine.
Since appointment, knee service improvements have been implemented by Mr Guy and his team to improve patient care. Knee injuries are now triaged to allow quicker diagnosis by utilising specialist multi-disciplinary musculoskeletal (sport injury) clinics and same day cross-sectional imaging (MRI). He has promoted research opportunities by having a senior elite-level research physiotherapist in clinic, working with local Universities to facilitate research including setting up clinical trials. He has also set up and chairs a meeting for the sports knee surgeons in the Yorkshire region.
Mr Guy has written original research articles in peer reviewed journals including randomised control trials looking at knee controversies. He also peer reviews articles for the national knee surgery journal. He has treated athletes in multiple sports that represent a broad spectrum of activity levels from the elite athlete representing Great Britain to the aging part-time weekend warrior (to whom he has a warm affinity). He is also lead clinician for Trauma at Bradford Royal Infirmary.
He has always been a keen sportsman being captain of his first XV and representing Yorkshire at rugby union. He still is passionate about sports and manages to play veterans rugby, cycle, run half marathons, play 5-a-side football, participate in cross-fit and do some pilates when not spending time with his wife, 3 children and his beloved pointer!
