Mr Daniel Phillip Thomas is a highly experienced consultant trauma and orthopaedic surgeon based in Cardiff. He currently sees patients at the renowned clinics of Nuffield Health Cardiff Bay Hospital and Nuffield Vale Hospital.

Mr D. Phillip Thomas has developed a strong interest in hip disorders and is trained to offer the vast majority of surgical hip procedures. He regularly deals with both paediatric hip disorders as well as hip problems of young and older adults. This range of expertise includes developmental dislocation of the hip (DDH), Perthes disease of the hip, slipped capital femoral epiphysis (SCFE), and the consequences of childhood hip disorders which frequently mean degenerative disease or osteoarthritis of the hip at a young age. He ensures that all his patients can make well-informed choices for themselves when it comes to their treatment. He is also an expert when it comes to performing robotic-assisted hip replacements. 

He has developed an interest in hip arthroscopy over the last 15 years and deals with problems such as hip impingement by keyhole surgery. He often treats athletes and sportsmen with sports injuries (e.g. hip and groin injuries) and is the orthopaedic surgeon for the Llanelli Scarlets rugby team. He also treats players from the Wales men and women's senior rugby team as well as professional footballers from Cardiff and Swansea City AFC. In this role, he works closely with an expert multidisciplinary team.

He is an honorary university lecturer at The University of Wales as well as a member of the International Society for Hip Arthroscopy (ISHA). What's more, he is a faculty member for teaching hip arthroscopy on various courses for medical students and post-graduate trainees. He frequently lectures and presents publications on his areas of expertise and he has an active research interest with numerous publications in peer-reviewed journals.
