Information for patients undergoing orthopaedic treatment


Mr John Britton BA FRCS
Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon
Basingstoke, Hampshire, U.K.

This website is designed to provide useful information for patients requiring orthopaedic treatment, particularly joint replacement surgery.

Having gained my medical qualifications from Cambridge and Oxford Universities I specialized in Orthopaedics in Oxford, Bath and Oswestry. I was appointed as a Consultant in Basingstoke in 1990.

I have a general orthopaedic practice and treat the majority of orthopaedic complaints including trauma. My sub speciality interests are:

  • Joint replacement
       Hip replacement, knee replacement and shoulder replacement
       Joint revision surgery
  • Shoulder surgery
       Shoulder arthroscopy
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
       Management of complex multi-joint problems

This site is not comprehensive but endeavours to cover the more common orthopaedic problems in which I specialize. The section on orthopaedic conditions contains essential information for anyone considering surgery. The operative advice sheets are designed to be helpful to patients and GPs alike.

I welcome both NHS and private referrals; professional etiquette is for UK patients to be referred by their General Practitioner. You may email general enquiries, but it is inappropriate to provide personal medical advice over the internet.
