Rob Middleton


NJR/RCS Research Fellow & DPhil student

Factors influencing outcome in knee replacement

Rob undertook his medical studies split between Cambridge and Oxford, graduating with distinction. He then entered clinical training via the Oxford Academic Foundation Programme in Oxford, continuing his research interests as part of Prof. Rees’ research groups. Following completion of the Oxford core surgical training programme, Rob is now undertaking a DPhil under the supervision of Prof. Andrew Price, Dr. Abtin Alvand & Dr. Prieto-Alhambra.

Rob's DPhil studies are centered on aspects of knee replacement care, with an interest on how various factors may influence post-operative outcome. A proportion of this work is supported by an RCS/NJR fellowship, to explore associations between frailty and outcome in knee replacement.

Alongside this he is a tutor at Magdalen & Worcester College, having previously been an anatomy demonstrator within the Department for Anatomy. Alongside his studies Rob is also an active member of university sports clubs.
