Professional Profile:

Mr Jonathan R. Howell MBBS, MSc, FRCS (Tr&Orth)
Jonathan Howell studied medicine at King’s College, London, and qualified in 1991. He joined the Royal Air Force medical branch and was awarded the Specialist Entrant prize on graduation from RAF College Cranwell. He spent six years as a junior surgeon with the Royal Air Force before gaining the fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons in 1996.


Jonathan undertook his higher surgical training in orthopaedic surgery in the South West of England, during which time he was a research fellow under the supervision of Professor Robin Ling OBE. As a result of this research he was awarded the Young Investigator of the Year award by the British Orthopaedic Research Society in 1999. His research also led to an MSc degree in Orthopaedic Engineering at Cardiff University, which was awarded in 2003.


After successfully completing his final orthopaedic fellowship examinations, Jonathan and his family moved to Vancouver, where he studied complex and revision hip and knee replacement surgery at the University of British Columbia. His published papers included work on minimally invasive hip replacement and revision surgery. In 2003 he moved back to Exeter to take up the hip fellowship position, and in 2004 he was appointed as a consultant on the Hip Unit at Exeter.


Jonathan now specialises in complex and revision hip surgery and knee replacement surgery, as well as working in the field of trauma. He is educational supervisor for the hip fellows at Exeter and continues his interest in orthopaedic research.
