Mr Marci Maheson
Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon
I have worked as a consultant orthopaedic surgeon in Cardiff since 1993 specialising in hip replacement/revision surgery at the University Hospitals in Cardiff in the NHS and at the Spire Cardiff Hospital in the private sector. I provide a comprehensive specialist private practice service receiving referrals from Wales, the whole of the UK and internationally. My clinical work covers primary and revision joint replacement surgery, minimally invasive surgery together with hip arthroscopy. I am actively involved in research and development projects in these fields. I am also actively involved in surgeon education/training having been regularly invited to speak internationally and perform demonstration operations nationally and globally.
I graduated from Sheffield University Medical School in 1983. After junior hospital posts at the university hospitals in Sheffield and Nottingham I completed higher surgical training in Orthopaedics and Trauma at the University Hospitals in Cardiff. I gained further specialist training in Dallas Texas USA, Toronto Canada, Endoclinic Hamburg and Nuremberg Germany before being appointed Senior Lecturer then NHS Consultant to the Cardiff University Hospitals.
I have been involved in a large number of innovations in the field of joint replacement surgery over the years including computer navigation surgery, reconstructive revision surgery and the use of micro hip replacements. Since 2011, I have been performing Direct Anterior hip replacement surgery combined with an Enhanced Recovery after Surgery programme (ERAS). This allows patients to undergo hip replacements without muscles being cut and to be discharged home within 24 to 48 hours after surgery with a faster rehabilitation recovery allowing return to normal activities. In October 2012, Spire Cardiff Hospital was declared an International Reference Centre for this surgery.
I come from a mixed Italian and Sri Lankan Tamil parentage. Married with 3 sons and a daughter, I still find time to enjoy another passion in my life - that of cycling. I have been a keen cyclist for many years involved mainly in road racing, sportives and mountain biking. Away from work this is one of my main interests.
As an existing or future patient under my care, I hope you will find this website useful. Please feel free to contact my office for any further information or to make an appointment to see me in clinic.
