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.

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.

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.

All the images are of the named authors carrying out their own techniques and the operative descriptions and questions are written by themselves.

Where operative techniques are demonstrated using an implant this reflects the authors own technique as  used in their practice. Their demonstration is not an endorsement of technique or implant by either OrthOracle , the Royal College of Surgeons  or the manufacturer and should not be regarded as such.

Full technical and operative details are available from the manufacturer and should be referred to by those considering the use of any implant.

The detailing of particular products or implants on OrthOracle should not be taken as an indication that these are superior to other similar products ,which may perform to similar standards.
