Mr Miller has a particular interest in Hip and Knee replacement procedures that allow patients to be discharged early and recover in their own homes. In addition to being trained in robot-assisted joint replacement in the UK and Florida, USA.   

As a clinical academic he runs regular research clinics providing new injectable treatments that can be used to prevent or slow the development of early arthritis using patients own growth factors and anti-inflammatory hormones (PRP).

He also provides chondrocyte (cartilage cell) transplant procedures that can regrow areas of cartilage damage. 

After receiving his doctorate from the Cardiff University Biomechanics and Bio-engineering Institute Mr Miller has published papers on the benefits of injectable biological treatments for arthritis, identified genetic targets to prevent osteoarthritis and demonstrated the advantages of partial knee replacements in all age groups.
