Background:

Henry qualified from University of Leeds Medical School in 1998 and undertook basic surgical training in Yorkshire and London. He then underwent orthopaedic specialist training in East Anglia, which led to completion of the Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons (Trauma and Orthopaedics) in 2008. He then undertook a specialist fellowship at the Centre for Hip Surgery, Wrightington. After his fellowship training he undertook visiting fellowships in Berne, Switzerland and Aarhus, Denmark, to learn techniques for periacetabular osteotomy (treatment for young adults with hip dysplasia) and for fixation of pelvic and acetabular fractures. He also spent a year during specialist training working in Blantyre, Malawi providing orthopaedic surgical care to children with musculoskeletal problems and injured adults. Support for this was provided by World Orthopaedic Concern UK.
 
He joined the team providing the regional pelvic and acetabular fracture service in 2010. He also provides a trauma service concentrating mainly on fractures of the lower limb with some general upper limb trauma. He has an interest in periprosthetic fractures of the acetabulum, hip and knee.
 
In his elective work Henry concentrates on problems of the hip and knee. He performs primary hip and knee replacements for arthritis and other problems such as post trauma, previous surgery and deformity in both young and elderly patients. He performs revision hip and knee replacements in patients who have failed implants for a variety of reasons, such as loosening and infection. He is particularly interested in the assessment of patients who have failed metal on metal hip replacements.
 
He has an extensive interest in research and is currently undertaking work with Dr Brian Derbyshire, in the Centre for Hip Surgery at Wrightington, looking at analysis of hip joint replacements using a new x-ray analysis technique to look at orientation of components and wear which may be useful to predict long term outcome.
 
Henry is a keen teacher. He has taught on courses both in the United Kingdom and abroad.
