Damian Griffin is the Professor of Trauma and Orthopaedic surgery at The University of Warwick. He trained at Cambridge, Oxford and in the United States and now has a clinical practice in hip surgery for young adults.

The practical application of hip arthroscopy to address problems in young, active or athletic patients is a particular passion. After a decade of surgery, this area has become the greater part of his practice and an increasingly important part of his research.

Since his move from Oxford and his appointment as the foundation Chair at Warwick in 2002, he has built a new academic department with a clear focus on the assessment of the clinical effectiveness of orthopaedic surgery. He is developing new methods of clinical research — scientifically robust but more suited to surgery — as well as performing primary and secondary research on clinical effectiveness. His growing academic team at Warwick now includes a senior lecturer, a brand new Specialist Registrar Training Programme, the only Walport Integrated Academic Training posts in the UK and and increasingly diverse collection of PhD students and post-docs. Professor Griffin is also trained as a clinical epidemiologist.
