Mr Stephen Tai BSc (Hons) MBBS FRCS (Tr & Ortho)

Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon 
Specialist in Adult Hip and Knee Arthroplasty and Traumatic Injuries

I am a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at East and North Hertfordshire NHS Trust, who specialises in adult hip and knee arthroplasty and the management of traumatic injuries. I consult privately at Pinehill Hospital in Hitchin.

Having studied medicine at St Mary's Hospital medical school, I underwent specialist training on the highly regarded Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, Stanmore, Specialist Registrar rotation. I then continued my sub specialty training in adult hip and knee replacement surgery on the prestigious year-long fellowship with the Specialist Orthopaedic Group in Sydney, Australia. During this fellowship, I was trained in the latest arthroplasty techniques, including the direct anterior approach to the hip, computer navigated hip replacements and patient specific implants.

I have completed a second fellowship in complex trauma at University Hospital, Walsgrave - one of the busiest major trauma centres in the United Kingdom. Traumatic injuries remain a specialist interest of mine, and I am the trauma lead in my NHS hospital.

I have published a number of articles related to my areas of sub-specialty interest and I have written book chapters on traumatic injuries.

Outside of medicine, my hobbies include golf, skiing, SCUBA diving, music and cooking.
