Mr Barnett undertook his 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 knee replacement. Having spent twelve months training under Mr Jonathan Eldridge, a national expert in patellofemoral (kneecap) instability, he has developed expertise in this field and is one of only a handful of surgeons who performs a trochleoplasty procedure, to fashion a new groove in the front of the thigh bone to stabilise the knee cap.

As a result of his fellowship training, 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 on arthroscopy courses.
