David Murray is a Professor of Orthopaedic
Surgery at the University of Oxford, and a Consultant Orthopaedic
Surgeon at the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre NHS Trust, Oxford. He
specialises in hip and knee surgery.
He initially read Engineering at the University of Cambridge (where
he was awarded the Wright Prize for Engineering), but subsequently
changed to Medicine and trained at the Universities of Cambridge, London
and Oxford. He is a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of England
and has a doctorate from the University of Cambridge.
In collaboration with his research team, clinical colleagues and the orthopaedic industry, Professor Murray has developed the Oxford Partial Knee. This device has a mobile bearing, is implanted using a minimally invasive approach and is the most widely used partial knee replacement. The success of this development has led to a worldwide increase in the use of partial knees, mobile bearings and minimally invasive approaches.
