History

Mr Davidson read medicine at Guy’s King’s & St Thomas’ school of medicine & dentistry, King’s College London, before completing his orthopaedic training on the prestigious Guy’s and St Thomas rotation. He is double fellowship-trained having completed subspecialty fellowship training in the Bone Tumour Unit at the RNOH (Stanmore), before completing an adult reconstruction and joint arthroplasty fellowship at the Royal Adelaide Hospital in Australia.

Mr Davidson was the recipient of two European travelling fellowships to visit centres of Orthopaedic excellence. He won both the European Musculoskeletal Oncology Society (EMSOS) and British Orthopaedic Association (BOA) Singhal Fellowships. He used these opportunities to visit the Rizzoli Orthopaedic Institute (Bologna, Italy) and Leiden University Medical Centre (Leiden, Netherlands) where he gained further experience in complex reconstruction techniques such as the use of block allograft and massive endoprostheses.

 

Mr Davidson has an extensive research background, most recently winning the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeon (AAOS) video prize in 2019 for work on Reconstruction of Severe Acetabular Defects at Revision Total Hip Arthroplasty which he conducted whilst working for Professors Solomon and Howie whilst in Adelaide.  He has completed a postgraduate diploma in Trauma & Orthopaedic Surgery from the University of Brighton as well as Masters in Surgical Technology from Imperial College London. He has presented his research widely with over 50 national & international presentations. Mr Davidson’s current research focus is in the Outcomes related to high-risk hip arthroplasty and as such he is currently enrolled in a PhD at King’s College London.

 

This wide breadth of training and research means that Mr Davidson uses the best evidence to inform patients on the best options for them when it comes to the management of their orthopaedic problems.
