    About

    Mr. Christopher Brew is a Consultant Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgeon with a special interest in Hip and Knee surgery. He was appointed at Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust in 2011 and also works as part of a private group of specialist hip and knee surgeons carrying out private treatment at The Yorkshire Clinic, Bingley. Mr. Brew maintains a busy practice including a full trauma commitment with an interest in periprosthetic fracture management and complex acetabular reconstruction using personalised 3D printed implants.

    Mr. Brew studied Medicine at St Andrews University and the University of Manchester, completing his specialist Orthopaedic training in Yorkshire, going on to complete two Hip and Knee Joint Replacement Fellowships, one national (Leeds) and one international (Brisbane, Australia), gaining extensive experience in revision (re-do) surgery and in computer-aided knee surgery. Following the award of multiple competitive Research Fellowships (ARC Research Fellowship, Action Research and Royal College of Surgeons of England Research Fellowship), Mr. Brew completed an extensive period of research into osteoarthritis, improving the understanding its causes. This work was published in internationally renowned journals and has been presented at international meetings, resulting in the award of a Doctorate in Medicine by the University of Manchester. 

    Mr. Brew continues his interest outside of his clinical work in teaching both medical students and junior doctors and is a Clinical and Educational Supervisor for several junior doctors in training and teaches on local and national courses. He is also the Elective Orthopaedic Speciality lead at the Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust with an interest in improving safety, efficiency, and effectiveness in theatres.

    Bedside Manner (4/5)
    Explanation (5/5)
    Patient seen for:
    After total hip replacement of both hips, I have been given back my life again. Before the operations I was barely mobile, housebound without my husbands help, and in constant pain, taking numerous painkillers. I am now walking miles, and gardening again. My husband has since died, and I dread to think how bad my life would be without having had Mr Brew to do my hip replacements.
