Mr James Patton

Treatment for:   Knee and hip pain, osteoarthritis

Private practice: Spire Murrayfield Hospital, Wednesday 8:00am – 11:00am and 5:30pm – 8:00pm

Professional Profile: I was appointed to the staff at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh and the Murrayfield Hospital in 2003. I am a specialist hip and knee surgeon with particular expertise in difficult joint replacement surgery, and musculoskeletal oncology surgery. I have trained on the Stryker Mako robotic arm technology in both Australia and Germany. I believe the robot will have a major effect on partial knee replacements. Using the robotic arm means I can personalise every operation to suit each of my patients, and make alterations mid-operation that couldn’t be made using previous surgical methods. My NHS practice is based at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh and I currently hold the post of Clinical Director of the Orthopaedic and Trauma Service and Head of Elective Orthopaedic Service.

Personal Profile: I live south of Edinburgh with my wife and five children.

Fees: My fees range from £180 for an initial consultation to £110 for a follow up visit. If you are insured please check the Fee Schedule, which we are required to make available to patients according to the Competition and Marketing Authority (CMA). For patients self-funding their surgical treatment please call the ‘Self Pay Team’ at the Spire Edinburgh Hospitals on 0131 316 2507.

Professional Memberships: British Hip Society, Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh, British Orthopaedic Association, Executive Committee – British Orthopaedic Oncology Society.
