Thomas Hamilton graduated first in his year, and second in the UK, in Pharmacology at the University of Edinburgh. He subsequently qualified in medicine and has seven years NHS experience. He is currently completing his doctorate funded by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) supervised by Professor David Murray, Professor Hemant Pandit and Dr Stephen Mellon at the Oxford Orthopaedic Engineering Centre.
His principal research interest is optimising patient selection for unicompartmental knee replacement with a particular interest in imaging of the arthritic knee. In addition, building on his pharmacology background, he is passionate about optimising peri-operative recovery in joint replacement patients.
During his D.Phil he has: published the long term outcomes of patients undergoing unicompartmental knee replacement; designed and achieved regulatory approval for OSSKAR (Oxford Stress System for Knee Arthroplasty Radiographs), a medical device for performing stress X-rays of the knee; and developed and validated a radiological decision aid for patient selection for unicompartmental knee replacement.
In addition to these activities Thomas is the lead author of two Cochrane systematic reviews and has experience in statistics, grant writing, ethics submission, trial design and also Patient Public Involvement to prioritise and develop research proposals.
