Particular Expertise: 
Knee replacement

Having completed specialist training in Orthopaedics on the West Midlands Higher surgical training scheme in 2002, Mr Evans undertook the highly regarded Cavendish Fellowship. This fellowship covered all aspects of hip and knee surgery utilising both keyhole and open techniques and enabled him to develop a number of research and teaching interests. He is now in his 10th year in consultant practice.

Soft Tissue Knee Surgery

Mr Evans sees patients of all ages with knee injuries, pain, torn cartilages and wear and tear of the knee, which often respond well to keyhole techniques. He will be happy to assess your joints and advise you regarding the safest and best option.

Joint Replacement Surgery

Mr Evans has performed over 3400 hip and knee replacement operations including many complex primary and revision procedures. He uses tried and tested implants. He will advise you of the best options available in your case including newer technologies if appropriate.

Mr Evans is involved in a number of research projects through his work at the Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital, Oswestry and is interested in less invasive surgical techniques and bone conservation at the time of primary and revision operations.

He specialises in techniques to maintain and restore native bone rather than bypassing it in order to improve outcomes now and not to prejudice future options.


Mr Evans has published and presented on many aspects of hip and knee surgery, he regularly attends national and international meetings to participate in surgeon education.

His work and experience, with a number of colleagues has resulted in Oswestry becoming the National Reference Centre for a number of specialist operations. Other interests:

  • Arthroscopic knee surgery, meniscal surgery and microfracture
  • Joint replacement fixation techniques
  • High performance joint replacement
  • Treatment of the failing hip or knee replacement
