Dr Negus moved to Sydney from London in 2006 and has lived here ever since, completing his Orthopaedic training here in Sydney. He lives on the Northern Beaches with his wife and 2 boys. They enjoy filling the weekends with soccer, cricket and Nippers while he does his best to maintain his triathlon fitness and squeeze in the odd round of golf, he rarely misses watching his beloved McLaren team in the F1.

Dr Negus is an Orthopaedic surgeon who trained in hip and knee surgery but now dedicates his time to conditions of the knee. This includes operating on primary and revision knee replacement surgeries, arthroscopic and sports injury surgery, osteotomy and realignment surgery.

Dr Negus’ career in Orthopaedics has a strong academic and research focus, particularly on optimising patients’ post-operative outcomes with individualised, detailed approaches. He has contributed chapters for books, published in prestigious journals, presented his research findings at conferences worldwide, and is an invited reviewer for several major international orthopaedics journals. Part of his PhD thesis examined the use of novel technology in rehabilitation after knee replacement surgery. His research in this area has earned him several awards, including the Foundation for Surgery Scholarship from the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (2010) and the AOA Registrars Association prize for best registrar research.

Dr Negus has been awarded higher degrees from the University of Cambridge, Imperial College London and the University of Sydney. He has worked and trained both in Sydney and in London, with visitations and fellowships across the United Kingdom and Europe to enhance his specialist training.

He is appointed as a Senior clinical lecturer at both University of Sydney and Macquarie University. He supervises MD students and has regular teaching engagements working with junior medical officers, allied health staff and medical students. This offers welcome opportunities to pass on his extensive knowledge and enthusiasm for his chosen field.
