Mr William Bartlett is an experienced consultant orthopaedic surgeon located in central London. His specialist interest is in the surgical and non-operative management of hip and knee complaints.
Mr Bartlett trained in and around the capital and undertook his fellowship at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital. During this time, and following visitations to centres of excellence in central Europe and North America, he developed his interest in hip and knee replacement surgery, together with joint preserving techniques.
He sees a diverse spectrum of patients, ranging from teenagers to nonagenarians, with lifestyles ranging from sedentary to former Olympians. Non-surgical treatment options will always be thoroughly explored initially, often through working closely with physiotherapists, osteopaths, radiologists, sports physicians and rheumatologists.
When surgery is needed, Mr Bartlett will offer each patient a highly personalised approach, ensuring that they remain firmly at the centre of the decision-making. As many of his patients are young and active, his practice has evolved to use modern bone preserving techniques and minimally invasive surgical approaches. Particular interests include the use of 3D computer planned surgery, custom-made prostheses and partial joint replacement surgery.
Mr Bartlett leads the enhanced recovery program within his NHS hospital and is committed to ensuring that each patient recovers from surgery as quickly, safely and fully as possible. He has performed over 2,000 hip and knee procedures and is currently conducting research into the performance of newly introduced hip replacement prostheses.
