Mr Cronin qualified from Charing Cross and Westminster Medical School in 2000. His orthopaedic training was undertaken in London and South Wales, during which time he built a strong interest in hip surgery. This has been complemented with 12 months Fellowship training in young adult hip surgery based at Guys Hospital in London. He has also travelled extensively visiting surgeons with similar interests to further his skills.
His interest in hip surgery (or often in non-surgical treatment if appropriate) ranges from hip arthroscopy and open bony surgery (osteotomies) to total hip replacement and revision total hip replacement.
His NHS post is now in Swansea, Morriston Hospital and previously worked at one of the largest specialist young adult hip units in the UK (UHCW).
He has a keen interest in teaching, being involved in the training programme for junior orthopaedic surgeons and now runs a 12 month post for an overseas fellow to gain experience in this field.
Mr Cronin specialises in the following treatments in Cardiff and Warwick:
Superpath - Minimally invasive hip replacement

Mr Cronin has an active interest in orthopaedic research. During his training he undertook a BsC in physiology with a special interest in sports science. He has subsequently taken two years out of his training to research novel designs in hip replacements suitable for young active patients.
He is currently involved in studies comparing hip arthroscopy to non-surgical treatment for certain conditions and studies on hip replacements available for young active patients.
He travels widely and regularly presents at national and international meetings as an invited speaker or after peer review of his research. He has published extensively on topics relating to the hip and has recently written a book chapter on specialist examination of the sporting hip.
