He joined St Bartholomew’s and Royal London teaching hospital in April 2010 and initiated a pelvic and acetabular trauma service to complement the existing impressive orthopaedic trauma service that the Royal London Hospital is renowned for. This service has developed rapidly to become the busiest in the country.
Mr Culpan is one of a handful of surgeons globally performing customised hip replacements utilising minimally invasive techniques and more complex hip replacement surgery including lower limb reconstruction surgery, revision surgery and knee replacement surgery.
He specialises in the management of complex trauma patients including pelvic and acetabular fractures being amongst the few global surgeons who can perform the so-called “fix and replace”. He continues to manage patients with knee sports injuries and knee ligament injuries including reconstructions in complex multiple ligament injuries of the knee.
For many years, Mr Culpan has treated international patients who have travelled for care in London and abroad. As CEO of London International Patient Services, he has worked closely with leading consultants across London to provide the best level of care possible to overseas patients.
Qualifying from Medicine from the University of Manchester in 1996, having previously attained a BSc from the University of St Andrews, he undertook his fellowship in France working at the famous orthopaedic teaching centre in Garches, Paris.
Following this, he moved with his family to Abu Dhabi where he spent two and a half years working as a consultant in the largest hospital in the UAE. He specialised in knee sports injuries; knee and hip replacements; lower limb trauma and pelvic and acetabular trauma. He returned to London in 2010 to join the Royal London Hospital.
