Orthopaedic surgery with an interest in lower limb degenerative conditions, sports medicine and trauma affecting adults and children.
Examiner in the Diploma of Sports and Exercise Medicine at the University of Bath
Mr Cledwyn Jones qualified at Leeds University in 1975. After working in the Leeds area he moved to London in 1980 where he qualified as a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons in 1980. In 1998, after working in London and spending a year in Baltimore as a research worker, he was appointed as Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at the Royal United Hospital in Bath.
He was initially appointed to perform children's orthopaedic surgery and general orthopaedics. Mr Jones has continued to undertake children's work and has also developed an interest in lower limb degenerative conditions and trauma affecting adults. His particular interests are arthroscopic surgery, lower limb joint replacement surgery, and foot and ankle surgery. He continues to maintain his expertise in children's orthopaedic surgery, being the paediatric orthopaedic surgeon at the Royal United Hospital, Bath.
In addition, Mr Jones developed an interest in sports injuries, having been invited to become Medical Advisor to Bath Rugby Club in 1991. This role resulted in him setting up one of the few NHS sports injury clinics (based at the Royal United Hospital, Bath). This is a true multi-disciplinary clinic, staffed with a Consultant Rheumatologist, two General Practioners with Higher Diplomas in Sports Medicine, a Physiotherapist and a Podiatrist.
In 2001 he was appointed to the Royal National Hospital for Rheumatic Diseases in Bath where he has developed the foot and ankle service.
Mr Jones has a reputation amongst his colleagues as someone 'easy to talk to' and this attitude is very much reflected in his interactions with patients and relatives - earning him the reputation of being someone who is thoughtful, understanding and appreciative of other's concerns.
In 1996 Mr Jones was appointed Clinical Director of Orthopaedics at the Royal United Hospital, Bath, a post that was held for five years. When in post he was able to establish an Internet link between community fracture clinics and the main hospital fracture clinic, which allowed GPs to get an instant opinion on x-rays.
Membership of professional associations
Mr Jones is a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons (Eng.), Member of the British Orthopaedic Association, British Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society and the British Society for Children's Orthopaedic Surgery. He is also an expert witness and is registered with the Law Society's Expert Witness Directory.
He is an examiner in the Diploma of Sports Medicine at Bath University and is actively involved in teaching physiotherapists and junior surgeons. He regularly attends conferences to maintain and update his clinical expertise; some of the more recent being a conference on knee replacement surgery, a paediatric club foot conference and an event outlining current proposals regarding training of junior doctors.
