Mr David Goodier

MB BS FRCS(Eng) FRCS(Orth)

Mr David Goodier is a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon specialising in complex fractures and trauma. He has pioneered limb reconstruction using the Ilizarov technique and other external fixators to treat non-union fractures.

Career to date

Mr Goodier qualified from The Royal London Hospital in 1985 and has worked there and at St Bartholomew’s Hospital as lead consultant for trauma orthopaedics for 15 years, and as Head of Department for 3 of those years.

The Royal London is the home of the Helicopter Emergency Medical Service, giving him an unparalleled experience of the management of the most severely injured patients. It was this experience that led to an interest in the management of ‘problem fractures’ including complex fracture patterns, non-unions, multiple injuries and infected fractures.

He has pioneered Limb Reconstruction treatment using the Ilizarov and other external fixators, and is a member of council of the British Limb Reconstruction Society as well as lecturing throughout the UK and worldwide on these techniques.

His interest in the overall management of trauma extends to Sports Injuries through which he sees many high level and professional athletes for knee, foot & ankle problems. He performs arthroscopic and ligament surgery on both the knee and the ankle joint, as well as other lower limb and foot surgery.

I commend the professional touch of the Consultants I saw & their promptness. Most importantly, I thank Mr Goodier for introducing me to such high caliber Professionals.
