Consultant orthopaedic and trauma surgeon - specialist in minimally invasive hip surgery, hip resurfacing, primary and revision hip and knee replacement surgery.
Miss Samantha Tross is one of a small but growing number of female Orthopaedic surgeons.
She graduated from University College and Middlesex School of Medicine in 1992, by which time she decided to pursue a career in surgery. After her SHO rotation at the Royal London and Basildon Hospitals, she decided to pursue a career in orthopaedic surgery. She trained on the South East Thames (Guy's and St. Thomas's) rotation and completed orthopaedic training in 2004. Thereafter she was appointed as a locum Consultant Surgeon at Guy's and St. Thomas' hospital before her current substantive appointment at Ealing Hospital.
A member of the British Hip Society, Miss Tross has had Fellowship Training in lower limb arthroplasty from the world renowned Orthopaedic and Arthritic Institute, part of Sunnybrook and Women's College, Toronto, Canada, as well as the Peninsula Orthopaedic Institute in Sydney, Australia. Experience was gained in minimally invasive hip surgery, hip resurfacing, knee arthroscopy and computer navigated knee surgery in addition to standard primary and revision hip and knee arthroplasty. Since qualifying, Miss Tross has also trained in Hip Arthroscopy.
Miss Tross's current practice reflects her skills gained in her general orthopaedic training, where she has experience in diagnosing and implementing treatment on most orthopaedic pathologies.
