Mr William Bartlett MBBS BSc MRCS FRCSEd (Tr&Orth) is an experienced Orthopaedic Surgeon with a specialist interest in the surgical and non-operative management of hip and knee complaints. He has been an NHS consultant since 2011 and is the clinical lead for the Orthopaedic unit at the Whittington hospital. His private practice is based at The Princess Grace Hospital in the heart of the medical district of central London.
William began his medical career in 1994 at University College London where he won numerous prizes and scholarships including the Myerstein prize for best overall pre-clinical performance. Much of his specialist training was at The Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital in Stanmore where he also undertook research and his subspeciality fellowship. He underwent additional training on cutting-edge techniques of joint preservation and minimally invasive replacement surgery at Presbyterian Hospital (Texas), New Albany Hospital (Ohio) and Chirurgish Orthopadische (Quickborn, Germany).
Many of the patients that William looks after have active lifestyles including professional sports men & women. William often also treats patients with more sedentary lifestyles and has gained a large experience of treating patients who have previously been denied surgery due to concerns relating to advanced age, obesity or complex medical conditions. In all groups, non-surgical treatment options will always be thoroughly explored, often through close working with expert physiotherapists, osteopaths, radiologists, sports physicians and rheumatologists.
Mr. Bartlett ensures that patients are kept firmly at the centre of the decision-making, by providing a personalised appraisal of treatment options in a calm and unrushed environment. When surgery is recommended, minimally invasive surgical techniques are utilised to preserve bone and soft tissue. Particular interests include the use of computer planned surgery (including bespoke cutting guides and MAKO robotic assisted surgery), custom made prostheses and partial joint replacement surgery.
William is committed to ensuring that patients receive the highest possible quality of orthopaedic care and leads the “Getting it right first time” NHS improvement program within his unit. He is dedicated to the continual refinement of treatment pathways to ensure that patients recover from surgery as quickly, safely and fully as possible. His work leading the enhanced recovery group at the Whittington hospital has led the unit introducing daycase joint replacements to selected patients and achieving the lowest stay lengths for hip and knee replacement surgery within the region.
He has performed over 2,000 elective hip and knee procedures but beyond planned surgery, also enjoys the challenges of emergency trauma surgery. Currently, Mr Bartlett is the lead investigator of a number clinical studies undertaken in conjunction with commercial partners and the National Institute of Health Research. His research into biological forms of joint repair and the use of custom-made prostheses has been widely published. He is responsible for the training of next generation of doctors including both sports & exercise physicians and trauma & orthopaedic surgeons. Mr Bartlett has taught on numerous postgraduate courses (Royal College of Surgeons of England, Royal Society of Medicine and Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital) and is as a reviewer for Journals including The Bone and Joint Journal.
