Mr Goodier qualified from The Royal London Hospital in 1985 and worked there and at St Bartholomew's Hospital as lead consultant for trauma orthopaedics for 15 years, and as Head of Department for 3 of those years. The Royal London is the home of the Helicopter Emergency Medical Service, giving him an unparalleled experience of the management of the most severely injured patients. It was this experience that led to an interest in the management of 'problem fractures' including complex fracture patterns, non-unions, multiple injuries and infected fractures.
In December 2011 he left The Royal London and St Bartholomew’s Hospitals and currently is Consultant in Limb Reconstruction Surgery at The Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital.
He has pioneered Limb Reconstruction treatment using the Ilizarov and other external fixators, and is a member of council of the British Limb Reconstruction Society as well as lecturing throughout the UK and worldwide on these techniques. He also teaches the use of the Taylor Spatial Frame, the Ilizarov Frame and the Orthofix LRS rail system.
He is experienced in the use of intramedullary lengthening devices for leg length inequality, and the Limb Reconstruction Unit here at Stanmore has the largest experience outside the US of this technique.
Mr Goodier is the President Elect of the British Limb Reconstruction Society and will take over as President in March 2018.
