Mr Barnett undertook his basic and specialist training in Bristol. This included a significant amount of time spent doing clinical and research work at Avon Orthopaedic Centre, a national centre of clinical excellence.  He completed his training with eighteen months of specialist fellowship training in Oxford, Sydney and Exeter.

Mr Barnett has a particular interest in arthroscopic (keyhole) surgery, knee ligament reconstruction and day case partial knee replacement. Having spent twelve months training under Mr Jonathan Eldridge, an expert in patellofemoral (kneecap) instability, he too has developed expertise in this field and is one of only a handful of surgeons who perform Trochleoplasty on a regular basis.

Mr Barnett is trained in the latest techniques of partial knee replacement, patient-specific knee replacements and ligament reconstruction. He furthered his interest in sports injuries during a six month fellowship at the world-renowned North Sydney Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Centre in Australia. The unit treats national and international sportsmen from all over Australia. 

Mr Barnett teaches nationally and internationally on arthroscopy courses.
