Mr Lee Jeys
MB ChB, MSc (Ortho. Engin), FRCS (Tr & Orth)
Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon
Specialist in Hip, Knee and Oncology Surgery
Unfortunately some people develop hip pain early in life due to the way their hips developed in childhood or due to injury and disease in adolescence.

Treating patients with hip problems who are less than 40 years old requires special techniques and sometimes special technology.

Mr Jeys has extensive experience in doing joint replacements in children and young adults due to his expertise in treating bone tumours, which frequently occur in young people.

He employs a variety of techniques including bone grafting, trabecular metal implants and large bearing metal implants to restore normal leg lengths, pain relief and improved mobility.
