Mr Simon Moyes specialises in arthroscopic and minimally invasive treatment predominantly for sports injuries, specialising in knee, shoulder, foot and ankle problems.
At the start of his medical training, Mr Simon Moyes attended Middlesex Hospital Medical School and obtained his first house job at the Hospital where he worked for Sir Rodney Sweetnam, the Queen’s Orthopaedic Surgeon. After qualifying from The Middlesex Hospital, he went to Cambridge to do trauma rotation for a year before returning to London to study for his primary FRCS, the first part of the Fellowship of The Royal College of Surgeons.
After achieving this, in 1985 he began a surgical SHO rotation, based at St Bartholomew’s Hospital, whereby he rotated through The National Hospital for Nervous Diseases, Queen Square, among other central London hospitals. He then spent one year at Cheltenham General Hospital gaining considerable operative experience in general vascular and neurological surgery, whilst passing his General Surgical Fellowship, the “FRCS” at the same time.
Following this, Mr Simon Moyes then returned to London to commence his specific orthopaedic surgical training at The Westminster Hospital as an Orthopaedic Surgical Registrar. He spent two years on this programme before obtaining a Senior Registrar’s rotation out of The Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital.
He is credited for introducing arthroscopic surgery into the UK, having taking up the post of Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at UCL Hospitals in 1994, with a special interest in arthroscopic surgery and sports medicine. For the last 15 years Mr Moyes moved into full time private practice, which he continues to offer to this day.
Mr Moyes now consults out of The Wellington Hospital, Highgate Private Hospital and 31 Old Broad Street. He undertakes six private clinics a week and two full operating lists per week.
Moyes is also a keen sports enthusiast enjoying activities such as cycling, yoga and running whilst supporting charities focussing on the preservation of nature and wildlife.
His patients come from all across the UK, UAE, France, China, Russia, the United States and South Africa.
