About Mr Weston-Simons
Sam completed his medical training at Royal Free and University College School of Medicine in 2004, completing a BSc. in Pharmacology as part of the program. Prior to completing his orthopaedic training in London and the South East, he spent 6 months volunteering as a fellow at the Beit-Cure Orthopaedic Children’s Hospital in Malawi, where his passion for Paediatric and Developing World Orthopaedics was cemented. As part of the orthopaedic program, he carried out, and established, a 6 month trauma fellowship in South Africa. Further subspecialty training in Paediatric Orthopaedics was undertaken at The Hospital for Sick Children, Toronto, Canada and in Paediatric Limb Reconstruction at Sheffield Children’s Hospital in 2017 and 2018 respectively. Following his appointment as a Children’s Orthopaedic Consultant at Evelina Children’s Hospital in London in 2020, he has established a limb reconstruction unit with further sub-speciality interests in skeletal dysplasia.
His current practice covers all areas of paediatric orthopaedics as well as delivering a speciality on-call service for children’s trauma and infections at a regional children’s hospital. His expertise extends to the treatment of the following conditions: hip dysplasia, developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH), slipped upper femoral epiphysis (SUFE), deformity correction and limb reconstruction, Perthes disease, guided growth surgery, neuromuscular disorders, cerebral palsy, children’s foot and ankle conditions, cavovarus foot deformity, flat feet.
Sam strongly believes that every child has unique needs and ambitions with non-operative and operative options reflecting these. Prior to considering surgery, he makes sure that all non-operative measures and interventions are evaluated and carried out as many children will not need surgery. At the initial appointment, he will review a child’s symptoms and signs before suggesting a tailored, child-specific treatment plan, fully involving parents in all aspects of decision making.
Outside of work, Sam continues to have a passion and engagement in developing world paediatric orthopaedics through online teaching programs and international trips when possible. A young family keeps him otherwise busy, although his bicycle and a ride are never far away.
