Decision Making in Surgery for Femoracetabular Impingement (FAI) - Fisic Conference Presentation 2015 (13 mins) [Video]

This content consists of a 13 minute video presentation professionally produced and presented at the Fisic Conference 2015.

Professor Damian Griffin gained a First Class degree in Physiology in Cambridge, and then studied Medicine in Oxford. He trained as an orthopaedic surgeon in Oxford and the United States, returning to Cambridge to study and research the clinical epidemiology of musculoskeletal disease. He worked as a Consultant in Oxford before taking up the Foundation Chair in Warwick in 2002 and helping to establish Warwick Medical School.

His clinical interest is in the diagnosis and treatment of hip pain in young adults. Joint-preserving surgery for early arthritis, the development of hip arthroscopy, and the management of femoro-acetabular impingement, sporting injury and acetabular fractures are particular passions of his as well. Professor Griffin runs a national referral service for young and active people with hip pain, based at the University Hospital of Coventry and Warwickshire NHS Trust and at the BMI Meriden Hospital.

In Warwick Orthopaedics, he has built a new academic department with a clear focus on the assessment of clinical effectiveness of orthopaedic surgery, developing new methods for clinical research, scientifically robust but more suited to surgery, as well as performing primary and secondary research on clinical effectiveness. He is an internationally recognised expert, regularly teaching and lecturing all over the world, and drawing patients for specialist opinions and surgery from the UK, Europe and elsewhere.
