Richard C Hartley

BMedSci(Hons), BM, BS, FRCSEd, FRCSEd(Tr&Orth)


Practising at Ramsay Fitzwilliam Hospital, Peterborough City Hospital and Stamford & Rutland Hospital.

I was appointed at Peterborough Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust as a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon in April 2005.

My education was at Queen Elizabeth's Grammar School, Blackburn and Nottingham University Medical School.

During my Orthopaedic training in the Mersey Region I gained wide ranging experience in Orthopaedic Surgery and developed my specialist interest in knee surgery, entering the General Medical Council's Specialist Register in 2005.

Clinical Practice

My clinical practice encompasses all aspects of knee surgery including -

  • Arthroscopy and meniscal surgery
  • Articular cartilage surgery
  • Ligament reconstruction
  • Complex multi-ligament reconstruction
  • Partial knee replacement
  • Total knee replacement
  • Revision knee replacement

As a result of my experience I regularly receive referrals from colleagues and general practitioners of complex cases.

I also perform cemented primary total hip replacements.


My main research interest is measuring outcomes following knee replacement surgery in terms of patients' perception of their new knees.

I have published and presented my research nationally and internationally.
