Mr Anthony Clayston is a highly qualified and experienced Orthopaedic Surgeon. He qualified from Manchester University in 1982, after which he went on to undertake his orthopaedic training in London before eventually returning to the North West of England. He completed a Specialist Fellowship in Lower Limb Joint Replacement Surgery at Wrightington Hospital and visited Centres in Bern, Pittsburgh & Toronto to further develop his interest & expertise in the management of complex hip, pelvic & lower limb disorders.

Tony established the North West Pelvic, Acetabular & Young Adult Hip service at North Manchester General Hospital in 1994 and is a nationally recognised expert in the management of complex problems of the hip joint and pelvic bones. His expertise lies in the field of joint replacement surgery of the hip and knee, together with the assessment and management of young adult hip pain, treating patients with hip dysplasia (underdeveloped hip socket) & hip impingement. This includes performing specialised procedures to realign the bones around the hip (osteotomy) as an alternative to joint replacement in younger patients. He is one of only a few surgeons in the UK who regularly perform the Ganz Periacetabular Osteotomy, in addition to performing surgical fixations of complex pelvis & hip socket fractures treating patients from throughout the North of England & North Wales.

His other main area of clinical interest relates to sports injuries including arthroscopic (keyhole) surgery & ligament reconstruction of the knee & ankle. He is an avid proponent of an accelerated rehabilitation programme following cruciate ligament reconstructive surgery of the knee, thereby facilitating his patients return to full sporting activities. For many years he has provided orthopaedic advice & support to several high profile professional sports clubs, semi-professional clubs & amateur sportspeople.

Mr Clayston's exceptional degree of knowledge and plethora of experience ensure that his patients receive treatment from a surgeon who is working at the top of his respective field. As well as this Mr Clayston is committed to understanding his patients needs, striving to ensure that the patient not only receives the best in care and treatment, but also engages in the best patient experience possible.

I found Mr Clayson extremely helpful. He listened intently to my problem and after viewing the scans gave some sound advice which assisted my knees. I found it refreshing that he didn't dive into surgery and explained clearly what he was suggesting and why he felt it was the correct course of action. Overall a thoughtful and considerate professional. Would try and see him again in the future if further knee problems arise.


I was referred to Mr Clayson by my GP who suspected I needed a hip replacement. Having described my symptoms to Mr Clayson he thought my problem lay else where and sent me for a scan of my lumbar spine. This showed a degenerative change in my lower spine with some disc bulging causing nerve root irritation ,which explained all the pain and numbness I was experiencing. Thankfully no surgery needed, just a course of physiotherapy. My symptoms have improved dramatically. I could have danced out of his surgery I was so relieved. With each consultation Mr Clayson was friendly, professional and explained everything to me clearly. I would highly recommend him to anybody having similar problems.


I highly recommend Mr Clayson. I have seen him several times for knee and pelvic problems. He has also operated on my mother with excellent results.
