Gavin McHugh

Gavin is originally from Tyrone where he completed grammar school at the Christian Brothers in Omagh and obviously maintains a high level of support for his native county’s GAA achievements. He then completed his undergraduate training in Trinity College Dublin and subsequently his internship in the AMNCH Tallaght.
He went on to Basic Surgical Training in general surgery, orthopaedic surgery, vascular surgery & plastic surgery in 2003-2005 and at this point realised his interest lay in the field of orthopaedics. He completed his Doctor of Medicine thesis in  2006 – 2008 and worked as Clinical Tutor in both the Royal College of Surgeons & the Health & Human Performance Department in Dublin City University at this time.
He entered Higher Surgical training in Trauma & Orthopaedic surgery in 2009 – 2015 and this included a year’s Fellowship training in Christchurch, New Zealand.
He is married with two children. Apart from spending time with his family, his hobbies include weight training, hiking, cycling & skiing and he has travelled extensively throughout Europe, North & South America, Africa, Asia & Australasia.
Gavin is committed to providing the highest level of care for his patients in a friendly and down to earth manner. Whilst his areas of interest include soft tissue knee reconstruction and Hip and Knee Arthroplasty, he is particularly interested in knee navigation for both unicondylar (partial) and Total Knee Replacements.

Professor Joseph M Queally

“My philosophy of care is to understand the individual needs of my patients and deliver a bespoke treatment plan that is based on the most up to date evidence. Ultimately the primary aim is to achieve a return to the best possible level of function so patients can return to daily life as soon as possible.”

Professor Queally is a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at the Sports Surgery Clinic and Associate Professor at Trinity College Dublin. He specialises in treating patients with musculoskeletal injuries (both trauma and sports injuries) and chronic conditions affecting the lower limb including the hip, knee and ankle joints. He has specific expertise in hip and knee joint replacement (primary, complex and revision), arthroscopic (keyhole) knee surgery, upper and lower limb fracture fixation and joint injection.

Professor Queally graduated from University College Dublin in 2002 and completed the Irish surgical training programme in Trauma & Orthopaedic Surgery with the award of FRCS (Tr &Orth) in 2014. He then completed a fellowship in complex trauma (pelvic and lower limb) and joint replacement at Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge in 2015. Addenbrooke’s is a major academic health science centre in the UK and is the major trauma centre for the East of England with a 21-bed trauma ICU and a trauma catchment population of 6 million. He was subsequently appointed a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at Addenbrooke’s in 2016 and was the departmental Head of Trauma at the time of his return to Ireland in 2019 to a Consultant post at St James’s Hospital.
