Sarah Muirhead-Allwood

Sarah Muirhead-Allwood qualified in medicine from St Thomas' Hospital in London. Her postgraduate surgical and orthopaedic training were at St Thomas' Hospital, University College Hospital and the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital. She was appointed as a Consultant orthopaedic surgeon at the Whittington Hospital in London and the Royal Northern Hospital in 1984. The same year she was also appointed as Honorary Senior Clinical Lecturer at University College London. In 1991 she was appointed as a Consultant at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, where she remains an honorary consultant.

Although Miss Muirhead-Allwood was initially appointed as a general orthopaedic surgeon at the Whittington Hospital, she soon specialised in hip surgery. For the last fifteen years Miss Muirhead-Allwood has exclusively performed primary and revision hip surgery, and lectures on these procedures all over the world. She is a member of the British, European and International Hip Societies.

Miss Muirhead-Allwood set up the London Hip Unit in 2002 to provide a fully supported specialised service for adults with hip problems.


The London Hip Unit provides a wide range of facilities, including on-site X-ray and MRI imaging, alongside extensive support from its dedicated team of doctors and nurse-specialists.
