Miss Hing is a trauma and specialist knee surgeon with an interest in patellar instability. She has treated over 250 patients with patellar instability. She treats both children and adults with knee conditions such as meniscal injuries, cartilage injuries, knee pain and patellar (kneecap) instability.
Miss Hing performs knee arthroscopy, meniscectomy and repair, trochleoplasty, medial patellofemoral ligament reconstruction, tibial tubercle osteotomy and revision surgery for patellar dislocation.

Training & background:
Miss Hing graduated from medical school at University College London having also completed a BSc(Hons) in Anatomy and Developmental Biology. She continued her training on the Percival Pott Rotation at the Royal London Hospital, the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital and the Norfolk and Norwich Hospital whilst also reading for an MSc in orthopaedic engineering and an MD in patellofemoral instability. She has completed fellowships in Australia in trauma at the Alfred Hospital, soft tissue knee surgery at the Melbourne Orthopaedic Group and in the UK knee surgery at Guy’s Hospital.
She currently works at St George’s Hospital and has set up a specialist service treating patients with patellofemoral disorders such as dislocating kneecaps and knee pain. She is an Honorary Senior Lecturer at St George’s University and holds grants enabling her to continue her research into trauma of the lower limb and patellar instability. She is a reviewer for orthopaedic journals and grant applications. She is editor in chief of The Knee and has helped draft NICE guidance on the treatment of patellofemoral instability. She teaches on courses in basic science for FRCS(Orth) in London and Norwich.
Having completed the Lady Estelle Wolfson Emerging Leaders fellowship at the Royal College of Surgeons, I am keen to support diversity in surgery and have taken part in the Inspiring the Future campaign to raise awareness of science subjects as a career in schoolchildren. This has been a great way of inspiring the next generation of surgeons with artificial bones, drills and hammers for them to see what our job entails.
In my spare time I rock climb, ice climb and freedive. If the weather is not conducive to outdoor pursuits I like to spend time with my family.
