Geraint Thomas, DPhil student and Academic Clinical Fellow, was named as one of the 2014 Scientific Award Winners at the Hip Society meeting at the AAOS in New Orleans in March. He and his co-authors, Sion Glyn-Jones, Patrick Garfield-Roberts, Roger Gundle, Adrian Taylor, Peter McLardy-Smith and David Murray, were the recipients of the prestigious John Charnley Award.

This is the pre-eminent award for research related to the hip and has never before been won by someone from the UK. Geraint presented his work on "Long Term Wear Of Highly Cross-Linked Polyethylene In Total Hip Arthroplasty" at the Hip Society Specialty Day meeting and was an invited guest at the annual dinner of the Society. The paper will be published in a future edition of Clinical Orthopaedics and Related Research.
