Mr Ben Bolland completed his undergraduate training at St Mary’s Hospital, London. He undertook his orthopaedic training in the Wessex region where he developed his specific interest in lower limb and revision arthroplasty, trauma and related research. He completed a Masters degree in the field of Impaction Bone Grafting from which he was awarded multiple prizes and publications. He consolidated his interest and experience in revision lower limb arthroplasty via two fellowships in Exeter (Prof Ling Hip Fellow) and Bournemouth (specialist fellowship in trabecular metal reconstructions). From these he has gained experience in:
- Primary and complex hip and knee arthroplasty including following pathologies: dysplasia, protrusio, osteonecrosis (avascular necrosis), and inflammatory arthropathies
- Revision hip and knee surgery techniques including acetabular reconstruction (impaction bone grafting, trabecular metal reconstruction)
- Management of hip and knee periprosthetic fractures, the infected joint replacement and the unstable joint replacement.
Mr Bolland performs the following at Nufffield Health Taunton Hospital:
Mr Bolland is married with three young children. He is keen on all outdoor pursuits particularly cycling, swimming, sailing and walking. With a young family he greatly enjoys encouraging his children with these and many of their other interests.

Prior to moving to Taunton, Mr Bolland launched a retrieval and research team to investigate the causes of failure in hip and knee replacements, focusing primarily on metal on metal articulations. Over the last year he has coordinated research studies on the analysis of retrieval specimens from metal on metal hips.
