Damian Griffin is the Professor of Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgery at the University of Warwick. He trained in Cambridge, Oxford and the United States, and worked as a Consultant in Oxford before taking up the Foundation Chair in Warwick and helping to establish Warwick Medical School.
Damianâ€™s passion is the diagnosis and treatment of hip and groin pain in young adults. His clinical practice and research are all around joint-preserving surgery for early arthritis, hip arthroscopy, the management of femoroacetabular impingement and sport injuries of the hip. He runs the largest national referral service for young and active people with hip pain in the UK, based at the University Hospital of Coventry and Warwickshire NHS Trust, and for private patients and elite athletes at the BMI Meriden Hospital.
Damian leads a research team based at the University of Warwick, with a portfolio of hip research. In particular he is the chief investigator for the FASHioN trial, a large, multicenter randomised controlled trial of treatments for people with FAI syndrome, comparing surgery with physiotherapy-led rehabilitation: http://www.nets.nihr.ac.uk/projects/hta/1310302
