Professional profile

Johan Witt is a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at University College London Hospitals where he was appointed in 1995. He was educated at Winchester College and then went on to graduate from the Middlesex Hospital Medical School in 1983. His Orthopaedic training was in London and Boston, USA, with fellowships in Sydney and Bern. In Bern he had the opportunity to spend time with Prof. Reinhold Ganz who is responsible for developing our understanding of the concepts of mechanical damage to the hip joint and the techniques to address this.
His practice relates to the techniques of hip preservation surgery in particular hip arthroscopy and acetabular osteotomy for hip dysplasia. He teaches on hip arthroscopy courses and lectures at hip arthroscopy meetings as well as demonstrating and teaching a minimally invasive approach for periacetabular osteotomy (PAO). He also has a large experience in hip replacement surgery and is an exponent of the direct anterior approach to make recovery easier and faster.
