Personal Profile

Mr Jon Campion is a Knee and Hip surgeon specialising in arthroscopic (keyhole) knee surgery, ligament reconstruction and Partial and total knee and hip replacements.

Jon was born and brought up in Northamptonshire and went to school locally at Campion School in Bugbrooke.

He studied medicine at Saint Bartholomew's Medical School in London from 1991 and qualified in 1997. Following House Officer posts in London he spent a year working in Brisbane and also as a "Bush Doctor" in West Queensland.  On returning to the UK he completed his basic surgical training in Bath and Bristol.

Jon completed his Specialist Orthopaedic training in Oxford and became a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of London in 2008 (FRCS (ortho). On completion of specialist orthopaedic training he moved to Melbourne to undertake further Advanced Surgical Training Fellowships:

The Melbourne Knee Fellowship – Specialising in management of Sporting knee injuries, ligament reconstruction and knee replacement surgery - working closely with both professional and amateur athletes

The Bergman Arthroplasty Fellowship – Specialising in complex primary and revision hip and knee surgery – including the use of computer navigated surgery and “patient specific implants”

He returned to Oxford in 2009 to take up the Senior Knee Fellow position at the world-renowned Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre – Specialising in partial and total knee replacement surgery and the management of cartilage injures and arthritis.

Jon was appointed as a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon in Northampton in 2010.

His interests cover the full range of knee and hip surgery including arthroscopic ligament reconstruction, meniscal surgery, cartilage repair and partial or total joint replacements. He has a particular interest in the treatment of sporting knee injuries and management of degeneration and arthritis in younger and more active patients.

He works closely with his anaesthetic and physiotherapy colleagues to develop an "Enhanced Recovery Programme" for his patients. This programme uses the latest anaesthetic, analgesic and surgical techniques to allow early mobility after surgery and a reduced length of stay in hospital.
