Mr Hubble specialises in hip surgery including primary and revision hip joint replacement. He is one of the UKs most experienced hip surgeons, having performed or supervised several thousand hip replacements and is one of the leading specialists in the South West for complex and revision hip surgery.

He trained in orthopaedic surgery in Bristol and the South West and was a research fellow and later lecturer in Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgery at the University of Bristol from 1995 to 2000. His research included studying the long-term outcome of primary and revision total hip replacements, and the use of bone grafts in revision hip surgery. He was awarded a Royal College of Surgeons Research Fellowship and a Wellcome Trust Grant for this work. He obtained the Royal Surgical Colleges Diploma in Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgery (FRCS Tr&Orth) in 1999. In 2000 he then undertook a surgical fellowship in Melbourne, Australia, specialising in hip and complex trauma surgery.
