Mr Longstaff attended medical school at Cambridge University and graduated with First Class honours and a distinction in surgery. Post-graduate orthopaedic training was commenced at Addenbrooke's hospital, Cambridge and completed in Newcastle Upon Tyne. An additional 18 months of advanced surgical training was then undertaken in Melbourne and Perth, Australia where he developed a special interest and expertise in hip and knee replacement. Mr Longstaff was appointed Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at the County Durham & Darlington NHS Foundation trust in 2005. In addition to lower limb arthroplasty, he also delivers general trauma care to children and adults with a particular interest in periprosthetic fracture management. His research activities lie in the fields of trauma, hip and knee replacement and kinematics. He is an associate Clinical Lecturer in the Institute of Cellular Medicine at the University of Newcastle upon Tyne. A keen educator, he has been appointed Royal College surgical tutor and Intercollegiate MRCS examiner.
My surgery was in July 2018 and Mr Longstaff was fantastic from start to finish, I couldn't believe it went so smoothly. From my first meeting with Mr Longstaff I was made to feel at ease and very positive about the operation. He explained everything clearly and fully answered any concerns. I made a very good recovery and now my life is so much better. I am scheduled to have my other hip replaced next year. I have no anxiety as I have complete confidence in Mr Longstaff and his exceptional team. I would highly recommend Mr Lee Longstaff to anybody requiring a hip replacement.
Mr Longstaff has treated me over the past twelve months for two hip replacement operations in the last six months. He has proven to be a very caring person as well as a surgeon with first class skills. Overall, he is an excellent doctor who we are lucky to have in Durham. Thank you for all you have done and your team and nursing staff who helped bring about my return to good health.
