Michael C. Moss

Bsc MBBS FRCS - Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon

I have over 20 years' of surgical and clinical expertise making me one of the most credible and successful orthopaedic surgeons in the south.  I have treated thousands of patients over the years from all over the world. I am fascinated by joints, no two people are the same and nor are their joints. I believe passionately that every patient should be treated as an individual.  Surgery is not necessarily always the answer and treatment must offer patients the best solution for now and for their future lifestyle and aspirations. Whether you are an athlete competing on the world stage or an individual who simply wants to be pain free and able to live life to the full again, as a patient of mine, you will receive the best treatment we can offer from not only me but also my highly skilled and compassionate supporting team.

Senior Surgical Assistant

I trained as an Operating Department Practitioner at the Royal Navy Medical Staff School, Queen Alexandra and St Mary’s Hospitals in 1993.

Since qualifying I have worked in many of the busiest hospitals both in London and the south east.

For the last 12 years I have specialised in orthopaedics where I trained as a Surgical Assistant. I currently work at St Richard's Hospital, Chichester, where I am the team leader with responsibility for joint replacement and revision surgery.

I have assisted Mr Moss for the past five years.

Senior Anaesthetist

I qualified in medicine at Manchester Medical School in 1984 and shortly afterwards moved to London to continue training in my chosen specialty of Anaesthetics.

In 1994 I became a Consultant Anaesthetist in Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust and have been in private practice at the Nuffield Hospital in Chichester since that year. Unusually I have worked consistently with Mr Moss, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at the Nuffield, Spire Portsmouth and Goring Hall Hospitals, since 1994. We have known one another for more than twenty years having met whilst training in London.

My clinical interests include: pre-operative assessment, regional anaesthesia, anaesthesia for children, and allergy to anaesthetic drugs. I have always tried to keep abreast of modern anaesthetic techniques to be able to offer patients whatever they need and want as part of their anaesthetic for surgery. I am happy and able to care for any patient whether they have never had surgery before and don't know what to expect or have had several operations and know what they want and expect from their anaesthetic. It is this approach that enables me to work with Mr Moss to develop the best anaesthetic for any surgical treatment he offers.

The most satisfying part of my job as an anaesthetist in private practice is working with the same surgeon, meeting new patients but especially seeing satisfied patients returning for further treatment.

I am based at the Nuffield Hospital in Chichester, where many private consultations, treatments and operations are carried out by Mr Moss. I also look after the clinic appointments for West Street in Chichester as well and it is my job to ensure that your experience as an outpatient or inpatient goes smoothly. I always endeavour to answer any questions you may have regarding a potential consultation, forthcoming operation, costings and the ongoing after care, which often includes liaising with the physiotherapist team and your GP. I enjoy helping others and would love to meet as many of you as possible whilst you are in Outpatients or on the Ward.

Please call me if you have any questions or concerns you may have regarding your care here at Nuffield and if I can help in any way I will always try to do so.

I am available in the office Monday to Friday between 9.00am and 5.00pm. If I cannot answer straight away, I may be on the ward visiting a patient, or collecting X-ray reports and MRI’s, or in a meeting but please do leave a message and I will ensure to call you back as soon as I can.
