    About

    Mr Culpan, Trauma and Orthopaedic surgeon works for The Royal London Hospital, one of the largest trauma centres in Europe. His areas of specialisation include hip and knee replacements, anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction, complex hip reconstruction, arthroscopic knee surgery, and revision hip replacements. Within his speciality, he is one of a few doctors globally that perform customised hip replacements with minimally invasive techniques.

    In 1996 Mr Culpan graduated from the University of Manchester with a bachelor's in both medicine and surgery. Following that he began his basic surgical training, performing surgical rotations at both Bart’s and Royal London. He completed his higher surgical training in Trauma and orthopaedic surgery at University College London. Later on, in 2005, he was awarded a fellowship from the Royal College of Surgeons and completed his training in 2007.

    Following the completion of his fellowship, Mr Culpan undertook an additional year-long fellowship under the well renowned Orthopaedic surgeon Prof Judet in France. After finishing this final fellowship he then went on to be a consultant in Abu Dhabi, returning to the UK in 2010 to work within the Bart’s Health Trust. Mr Culpan during his career has also had a keen interest in research and has an excellent publication history.

    Currently, Mr Culpan works as a senior consultant for Royal London Hospital in which he takes on additional teaching roles. He also works alongside that in central London on his private practice where patients from around the world seek him out due to his expertise. He remains a highly prevalent and active surgeon within his field with a specific interest in custom hip and knee replacements (CT planned), pelvic and acetabular trauma, revision, and complex arthroplasty. Recently, he has developed a keen interest in osteointegration and rehabilitation.

    From the moment I first made contact with Sam at Mr Culpan’s office, I have received the best treatment I could have ever dreamed of. I was completely reassured every step of the way and after meeting Mr Culpan himself at the London Clinic, he was was delightful and made me feel so confident in the whole process. Once I had booked my surgery, which took place 2 weeks later I received the best care from the minute I arrived. Mr Culpan and his great team were on hand to help me through my Hip replacement procedure. I would highly recommend Mr Culpan and the London Clinic, I am overjoyed to be pain free with a new zest for life only 5 weeks on, it’s truly amazing and my scar is almost invisible. Thank you so much
