After my orthopaedic training in France in Bordeaux and Paris, I’ve undertaken an advanced training in hip and knee replacement in London and Montréal for almost three years. Following that, I’ve been consultant in the Bordeaux University Hospital for two years before to move in 2016 as a consultant and senior lecturer to the Imperial College of London. I’m now performing public health care at Charing Cross Hospital, and in parallel do some research at the MSK lab.

My elective practice is exclusively focused on Hip & Knee reconstruction, either primary or revision. My work in joint reconstruction as well as my research projects are mainly oriented towards a “patient specific implant positioning” taking into account the Spine-Hip relations for Hip replacement, doing Kinematic Alignment technique for total knee replacement, and favouring unicompartimental knee replacement and hip resurfacing when possible. I also aim to implement an outpatient joint replacement surgery, and a per-operative quality control of implant positioning, using technique of laser-scanning or augmented reality.
