I am currently the Thackray Hip Fellow in Wrightington and have previously competed the Young Adult Hip Fellowship at the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital Birmingham. In 2025 I will commence my Consultant post in Oswestry. My subspeciality interests are Hip and Knee arthroplasty, and Hip Preservation surgery. I began my training on the Warwickshire programme and completed a PhD ’the Epidemiology of FAI Syndrome’. During my PhD I worked as the research Fellow on the UK FASHIoN trial – the largest randomised trial comparing Hip Arthroscopy to physiotherapy. In my free time I enjoy Rugby, Cricket and hold a pilots license

Eyton Debbi

My name is Eytan M. Debbi, MD, PhD and I am an academic hip and knee replacement surgeon at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York, NY. My clinical practice is focused on managing a comprehensive range of cases from primary to complex revision arthroplasty. My PhD is in Biorobotics, Biomechanics and Mechanical Engineering. As leader of our Implant Longevity group at HSS, my research is focused on methods of improving patient functional outcomes and reducing implant failure after surgery. When not in the hospital, I love adventuring with my wife and three children. I am thankful to have recently been selected for this year’s Hip Society-British Hip Society Traveling Fellowship and very much looking forward to the incredible opportunity.
