About

Mr Simon Bridle specializes in hip and knee replacement surgery. He graduated in Medicine in London in 1981 and did his orthopaedic training there, with a specialist Fellowship in Adelaide, Australia. He was appointed as a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at St George’s Hospital, London in 1994, with a specialist interest in and hip and knee surgery, including primary replacements and revision surgery. He left his NHS post at St George’s in September 2016 after over 20 years, to focus on his private practice.

As well as performing a large number of primary hip and knee replacements, he has an interest in failed hip and knee implants and in particular the investigation and treatment of painful and infected hip and knee replacements. Simon helped set up and run the Complex Arthroplasty Unit at St George’s, treating patients referred to us by our colleagues with these problems. He has been involved in the treatment of a large number of these challenging cases over the years, with good results.

Simon was active in management, including roles as Lead for Orthopaedics, Clinical Director for Surgery and Clinical Director for Major Trauma. He regularly lectures on revision hip surgery and has contributed to research projects, with publications on this topic during his career. In addition to that, he was involved in the training of junior doctors and helped supervise a Senior Fellow at St George’s. He also runs the Orthopaedic section of the annual Doctors Updates meeting.

Besides his clinical practice, Simon also runs a medico-legal practice, advising the lawyers on claims by patients with complications following hip replacement.

Thank you for the amazing job you did replacing my hip. I have just celebrated my 60th birthday and was able to stand all day and dance for over 2 hours! This would not have been possible before my operation and I am so very grateful to you.

Thanking you very much indeed for the marvellous operation you performed on my hip. Now ten months later, I am not only back to normal but I tend to forget that I ever had a problem. When I do remember I bless you. From the moment I woke up at the Cromwell hospital after the anaesthetic I never felt any serious discomfort. The recovery was really fast and I was walking without a crutch within a couple of weeks. Thanks to you the whole experience was amazingly painless. I am very grateful.
