Paul Harnett is a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon specialising in pelvis and acetabular trauma, open fractures and elective hip and knee surgery.
My NHS base is at King’s College Hospital in London, where I have been since 2014. Matt Gee and I have developed the tertiary pelvis trauma service for the South East and Kent area with a population of 4.5 million, we treat between 70-80 pelvis trauma cases per year.
I graduated from the University of Bristol Medical School with an additional BSc in Sports Medicine. I completed my orthopaedic surgery training in London and sub-specialised during a number of fellowships in Vancouver (Canada), the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York, the Elective Orthopaedic Centre in Epsom and the Royal London Hospital.
I am also a keen amateur sportsman regularly competing in triathlons and endurance races including Ironman Lanzarote, London Marathon, multiple triathlons per year (GB age group team 2018), and the Cape Epic Endurance Mountain Bike Race in South Africa. I was also an international downhill ski racer in my youth training at the National Ski Academy in Canada.
