Mr Lopez is a Consultant Trauma & Orthopaedic Surgeon specialising in conditions affecting the hip and knee, ranging from sports injuries to arthritis. A large segment of his practice revolves around primary (first time) and revision (re-do) joint replacement surgery of both joints. He has a strong clinical interest in the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of painful, infected and failing joint replacements.

Mr Lopez gained his undergraduate medical qualifications in 2007 from Imperial College, London. His early postgraduate training was undertaken in London, on the South-East Thames training programme, where he gained membership to the Royal College of Surgeons (England). His higher surgical training was undertaken on the Cambridge orthopaedic rotation. He was appointed as the chief resident during his time in Cambridge. This is a well-regarded clinical leadership programme set up by the Judge Business School, University of Cambridge and Addenbrookes Hospital.  He was awarded the Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons (Trauma & Orthopaedics) in 2016.

Upon completion of his specialist training, Mr Lopez undertook further extensive sub-specialty fellowship training in the UK, Germany and Australia.
 

The scope of his fellowship training covered all aspects of primary and revision (re-do) joint replacement surgery, peri-prosthetic joint infection (infection following joint replacement), as well as Orthopaedic oncology and sarcoma surgery (tumour surgery).

The breadth of his fellowship training has allowed Mr Lopez the ability to deal with cases of varying complexity. His NHS practice is a reflection of his training background. He enjoys a busy primary and revision joint replacement practice, and also regularly carries out more complex reconstructive surgery (proximal and distal femoral replacements) for patients with Metastatic Bone Tumour disease.

Aside from his clinical interests, Mr Lopez is a faculty member for several FRCS (Consultant level examination) courses for senior surgical trainees. He is also a faculty member for the AO trauma foundation, which trains orthopaedic surgeons in basic and advanced trauma surgery techniques. Mr Lopez also has several peer reviewed publications, as well as published book chapters in Orthopaedic text books. Most of these involve the topics of revision surgery and peri-prosthetic joint infection; both of which he is extremely passionate about. In addition to this, he is a regular reviewer for the Annals of the Royal College of Surgeons, as well as the Bone and Joint Journal (BJJ).
