A local orthopaedic consultant has been named as one of the top ten hip replacement surgeons by his peers in a recent poll conducted by the Daily Mail asking other hip surgeons who they would send their ‘nearest and dearest’ to should they need a total hip replacement and why.
Mr Douglas Dunlop, who has a private practice at Nuffield Health Wessex Hospital on Winchester Road, Chandlers Ford specialising in hip and knee disorders, was cited by colleagues as: “A top performer, a superb all rounder, combining excellent surgery with an academic foundation.”
He was “delighted and humbled” to have been singled-out in this way; “It is a real vindication of all the years of study and the experience I have gained both in the UK and overseas.
“To be recognised by my peers in this way means a lot – it is a very personal recommendation. However, it is the positive feedback that I get from my patients that always reassures me the most about the efficacy of my skills,” said Mr Dunlop.
Simon Shepherd, General Manager at Nuffield Health Wessex Hospital commented: “Everyone at the Wessex is thrilled that the expertise of Mr Dunlop has been recognised in this way. We always appreciated his skills and are delighted to be able to support his practice, making his expertise available to the people of Hampshire.
