Dr Deane Halfpenny MBBCh, FRCA, FFPMRCA
Consultant in Pain Medicine
I have been involved in the successful treatment of painful musculoskeletal conditions for many years with regenerative medicine therapies forming a large part of my practice.
I also form part of an international teaching faculty for orthobiologic therapies providing a useful platform for me to share my successes and experiences in regenerative medicine techniques.
Traditional treatments, especially the use of steroid injections, are often short lived, need to be repeated regularly and recent evidence suggests they can worsen the condition in the long term. I have been successfully using orthobiologic treatments for many years and believe the regenerative process to be a significant breakthrough in the management of degenerative joint and soft tissue disorders.
I am excited to be able to provide next generation biological cell therapies to our patients at The OrthoBiologics Clinic to help them restore an active life.
Dr Victoria Farrow MBBS, MRCGP, FRSH, DRCOG
I have worked in the NHS as a GP for the last nine years. I have many consultations with patients who are suffering from painful Osteoarthritis who are keen to avoid surgery for as long as they can, or have other co-morbidities which mean that surgery is not a possibility. Orthobiologics gives patients a wider scope of non-surgical treatment choice, which could relieve their pain and improve their quality of life. We use cutting edge regenerative cell therapies which utilise your body's own cells with easy to administer techniques, at minimal risk to the patient.
I am excited to be part of the team at The OrthoBiologics Clinic as we aim to restore the joys of an active life for our patients.
Mr Brian Cohen MD FRCS (Tr&Orth)
Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon – Upper Limb Lead
I am a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon specialising in conditions of the shoulder, elbow, wrist and hand. I trained at Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge where I completed an MD thesis and subsequently undertook a fellowship in Sports Orthopaedics for a year in Adelaide. On my return from Australia I was appointed as a Consultant in Orthopaedics and Trauma Surgery at University College Hospital NHS Trust.
In 2007 I became a founding partner of The London Orthopaedic Clinic, a private clinic in central London, based at King Edward VII Hospital. I have been involved in the treatment of painful musculoskeletal conditions affecting the upper limb for many years and through experience, I have developed a philosophy of exploring all non-operative forms of management, including orthobiologics treatments, in addition to offering surgery to my patients.
Mr Lloyd Williams MB BS FRCS (Tr&Orth)
Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon – Lower Limb Lead
I have been a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon for 22 years, specialising in treatment for disorders of the foot and ankle. I have extensive experience in the management of joint and tendon conditions in both professional and amateur sportsmen and sportswomen of all disciplines, with a special interest in ballet dancers, as well as in the general population.
I am keen to advance the non-surgical management of patients with early and late degenerative joint conditions and also tendon and ligament injuries. The opportunity to regenerate tissue and heal these disorders non-surgically, using the highly specialised techniques of The OrthoBiologics Clinic, is a very exciting development , of which I am very proud to be a part.
