Dr Negus’ career in Orthopaedics has a strong academic and research focus, particularly on optimising patients’ post-operative outcomes with individualised, detailed approaches. He has contributed chapters for books, published in prestigious journals, presented his research findings at conferences worldwide, and is an invited reviewer for several major international orthopaedics journals. Part of his PhD thesis examined the use of novel technology in rehabilitation after knee replacement surgery.
