Ronan Treacy is a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at The Royal Orthopaedic Hospital, Birmingham UK. For the past twenty years he has been involved in the renaissance of hip resurfacing with his colleague Derek McMinn.

Mr Treacy was born into a medical family and qualified from Birmingham Medical School in 1983. He served as an Anatomy demonstrator prior to surgical placements on the West Midlands Rotation. He developed an early interest in research and trauma. As recipient of RCS Laming Evans award in 1991,he took time out from his training to investigate the role that alterations in Red Cell membranes play in the development of ARDS. During this time he also developed a biodegradeable antibiotic delivery system in association with Aston University.

Mr Treacy was appointed to the staff of the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital in 1994 . He ran the revision hip service for nearly ten years and amassed a wealth of experience. During this time he helped develop the Birmingham Hip Resurfacing with his mentor McMinn. In addition to designing the first successful MoM resurfacing, they were also innovative in setting up an independent implant specific joint registry in 1997.

For the past decade in addition to a busy clinical practice, he has taught, lectured and operated globally including live surgeries at the COA and Current Concepts Meetings. He has the largest international experience of MoM hip resurfacing and continues to publish widely. In 2008, he was recognised by the Lord Mayor of Birmingham for his outstanding contribution to Orthopaedics in the city.  In 2010, he was awarded an Honorary Doctorate by the University of Birmingham. In 2013, he was elected as Staff Governor to the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital Foundation Trust.

Outside of orthopaedics, he has a number of business and charitable interests and is a Francophile and passionate skier.

I am a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon based at the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital in Birmingham.

I qualified as a Doctor from Birmingham University in 1989 and, following surgical training in Manchester, became a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons in 1993. I then undertook specialist training in Orthopaedics in the West Midlands followed by a one-year Fellowship in Vancouver specialising in Revision Hip and Knee surgery.

In 2001 I was appointed as a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital in Birmingham with a special interest in lower limb arthroplasty surgery. I was the Clinical Director for Arthroplasty from 2008 -2012 and since 2016 have been the Clinical Lead for hip surgery.

My clinical practice now specialises in hip replacement, revision and resurfacing surgery. I have been involved with the National Joint Registry from its start in 2003. I have been an invited speaker to International Revision Hip meetings and have co-authored over 25 academic papers.

Mr McBryde specialises in all the conditions that cause hip and groin pain. He is proficient in all the clinical and surgical aspects of the specialist field of young adult hip surgery. This includes femoral and acetabular osteotomies (both periacetabular osteotomy (PAO) and triple pelvic osteotomy), hip arthroscopy, resurfacing, total hip replacement and revision hip replacement.

Mr McBryde qualified as a doctor from the University of Manchester. He then completed his general surgical and specialist orthopaedic training in Birmingham. Early in his surgical career he was awarded the esteemed RH Sage Award for the best surgical trainee of the year. During his specialist orthopaedic training he was inspired by a number of surgeons including Mr O’Hara, Mr McMinn and Mr Treacy, and developed his specialist interest in conditions affecting the young adult hip. Closely involved in the growing interest in hip resurfacing he was awarded the first ever McMinn scholarship, awarded by the British Hip Society, which allowed him to complete a doctoral higher degree. The results of this research resulted in him being invited to share his findings with many other orthopaedic surgeons. He has lectured and taught at a number of international meetings in North America, Europe and Australia. On completion of his training he spent a year of fellowship in Sydney with one of the world leaders in hip surgery in young patients, Dr Solomon.
Mr McBryde was awarded the European Travelling fellowship by the British Hip Society where he spent time with world leaders in young adult hip surgery Dr Beck (Lucerne, Switzerland), and Dr Leunig (Zurich, Switzerland). He has also spent attachments with other recognized experts Dr O’Donnell (Melbourne, Australia) and Dr Young (Melbourne, Australia).

Mr McBryde worked as a consultant in Hip Preservation alongside Professor Griffin, a world leader in hip arthroscopy techniques, before returning to take up a consultant practice in Birmingham at The Royal Orthopaedic Hospital with an exclusive practice in young adult hip surgery.

The Editorial board are working to bring you new operations, techniques and insights all of the time.

We are all hugely grateful for the opportunities which our own patients afford us to do this . Without their selfless agreement and trust none of this would have been possible .

If there’s something you need to see but we don’t have it yet let us know and we’ll try to fix it.

The Editors currently can’t respond to technical queries (because we’re busy developing the rest of the Atlas) but will be going live with a professional case discussion forum in the near future.
