Miss Helen Vint
Consultant Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgeon
Miss Helen Vint is a Consultant Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgeon at Northumbria Healthcare. She performs trauma surgery and has an elective practice that focuses exclusively on knee surgery.
I am experienced in cartilage, meniscal and ligament injury repair and reconstruction, osteotomy, realignment and stabilisation surgery and the management of early and advanced osteoarthritis including partial and total knee replacement. I aim to help patients to preserve their native knee joint where advisable and I have a particular interest in treating kneecap problems.
I graduated from Newcastle University Medical School in 2008 and went on to specialist trauma and orthopaedic surgery training in the Northern Deanery and then two years of knee surgery sub-specialist fellowship training in Bristol and Coventry. My fellowship training encompassed all aspects of knee surgery and included advanced techniques such as operations for recurrent kneecap instability, trochleoplasty, osteochondral transplantation and meniscus transplantation.
My elective outpatient clinics and theatre lists are at Wansbeck and Hexham General Hospitals.
