Damian Griffin is the Professor of Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgery at the University of Warwick.
He trained in Cambridge, Oxford and the United States, and worked as a Consultant in Oxford before taking up the Foundation Chair in Warwick 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. He 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 in private clinics in Coventry and London.
In Warwick Orthopaedics, he has built a new academic department with a clear focus on the assessment of clinical effectiveness of orthopaedic surgery.
