Marcus is the Clinical Lead of the Department of Orthopaedics at Guy’s and St Thomas’ Foundation NHS Trust and was appointed Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon in 2002. His practice is exclusively confined to problems in and around the hip joint, with a special interest in surgical treatment of young adult hip disorders.
Marcus is the orthopaedic surgeon in the multidisciplinary service for sickle cell anaemia at Guy’s and St Thomas’ Foundation Trust. This team allows sickle patients to have safe and effective hip replacement surgery, a procedure that, in the past, was much less predictable. He has pioneered the use of un-cemented ceramic on ceramic hip replacements in this patient group.
Recognised as an opinion leader in hip surgery, Marcus gives between 20 and 30 talks a year to local and national meetings on the subjects of ceramic on ceramic total hip replacement, hip resurfacing, hip arthroscopy, hip dysplasia, hip impingement and the orthopaedic complications of sickle cell disease. He is a regular contributor at the British Hip Society, London Hip Meeting, The Great Debate, and The St George’s Revision Forum as well as being a reviewer for a number of orthopaedic journals.
