Mr Davies prides himself in his dual practice, in which he treats all musculoskeletal conditions that manifest in children as well as adult knee conditions. He is one of the few surgeons in the UK with expertise in dealing with knee problems in patients of all ages including newborn babies and elderly people.

Mr Davies is active in education and research.

He also spoke at the first Children’s Knee Conference in Sheffield in 2018 and the Warwick Sports Knee Conference in 2019.
His passion for the prevention of children's sports injuries has resulted in him leading a group of UK knee surgeons investigating the topic. Mr Davies, who has as an international children's fellowship at The Children's Hospital at Westmead in Sydney, Australia, and is a fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons (England), is the author of the successful FRCS (Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons) exam book, 'FRCS Trauma and Orthopaedics Viva'
