Mr Kerry Acton is a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at the Royal Surrey County Hospital, Guildford. He qualified in 1994 from St George’s Hospital Medical School, London with a BSc in addition to his medical degrees.

He became a fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of England in 1998 and undertook Orthopaedic training in London and the South East. He underwent subspecialty training in cementless and revision hip surgery during a one year Furlong Fellowship on the south coast.

In addition to a great enthusiasm for trauma surgery and fracture care, Mr Acton’s main interests lie in surgery of the hip and knee. Having studied the long term survival of implants he is a proponent of uncemented hip replacements and hard bearing (metal on metal (MOM) or ceramic on ceramic) hips. He performs revision hip surgery for failed previous replacements. He has a particular interest in the diagnosis and treatment of hip and knee problems in the young including arthroscopy and, during a consultation, will explain about all the options, including hip resurfacing (Birmingham Hip).
