We have received referrals from all around the UK, and increasingly from across the North East. From 2017 we have combined as a team with experts in radiology (X-ray, MRI and ultrasound), physiotherapy and sports injury to open the North East Hip Clinic.

Ajay Malviya and Paul Partington have both trained as orthopaedic surgeons in the North East of England. They have additional specialist training fellowship training in London (Ontario, Canada). London (UK) and Cambridge (UK). They have expertise in assessment and management of all aspects of hip problems.

Philosophy

We provide a comprehensive assessment and treatment pathway for your hip problems. We will give patient centred careful assessment of your symptoms and signs, with time to discuss in detail the treatment options. The NE Hip Clinic provides a range of surgery options from hip preservation surgery, to joint replacement or revision surgery offered appropriately as required.
