Mr David Duffy

I’m a a specialist knee surgeon with particular expertise in sports injuries and knee replacement surgery. I have extensive experience in performing ACL reconstruction, arthroscopic surgery and knee replacements.

I studied Medicine at Newcastle University. After graduation, I spent a number of years working in Australia before returning to the UK to undertake specialist Orthopaedic training in Yorkshire. I gained my expertise in knee surgery from renowned UK fellowship posts in Leeds and Harrogate. I then returned to Australia to work with leading knee surgeons, Dr. Peter Myers and Dr Peter McMeniman, where I gained experience in treating elite sports men and women.

On returning to the UK, I worked as a Consultant at Wrightington Hospital Orthopaedic Centre of Excellence, before moving to Harrogate in 2010.

My approach is directed at identifying the underlying cause to any knee pathology. This enables a treatment plan to address all aspects of knee function in order to optimise the results of treatment.

At the heart of my practice is a commitment to patient communication and care. Providing a clear and concise explanation of the diagnosis – something that should not be taken for granted – and treatment goal is a fundamental part of patient satisfaction and rehabilitation.

I maintain an active interest in education and am a clinical supervisor for junior doctors in their early foundation years following qualification. I’m a regular faculty member and teach on regional and national courses for training Orthopaedic Surgeons. Furthermore, I’m an author and contributor of a number of surgical articles in national and international journals.
