He has a wide tertiary referral practice and is one of the highest volume hip preservation surgeons in the United Kingdom. In his routine practice, he deals with sports injuries of the hip and has published and presented widely on the results of hip arthroscopy and pelvic osteotomy in athletes and the general population. He has also completed a PhD on the role of hip arthroscopy in femoroacetabular impingement.

He is the Chairman of the UK Non-Arthroplasty Hip Registry, which collects outcomes on hip preservation procedures performed in the UK and leads research initiatives from the Registry. In addition, he is the Deputy Editor of the Journal of Hip Preservation Surgery (Oxford University Press).

He has an active interest in research with more than 100 publications in peer-reviewed journals to his name, and lectures nationally and internationally. He is also the Chair of the Research Education and Mentorship committee of SICOT. He was awarded the prestigious ABC (America-Britain-Canada) fellowship in 2016 and travelled around North America, visiting several high-profile centres.

Timothy C. Sell, PhD
Atrium Health Musculoskeletal Institute
Charlotte, NC

Dr. Timothy C. Sell is a physical therapist and Research Professor at the Atrium Health Musculoskeletal Institute in Charlotte, NC.  He has a Bachelor of Science in Physical Therapy (1993) and Masters of Science in Human Movement Science (2001) both from the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill.  He completed his formal training at the University of Pittsburgh with a Doctor of Philosophy in Rehabilitation Science (Sports Medicine) in 1993.  He’s worked at the University of Pittsburgh, Duke University, and has been in his position at Atrium Health since January of 2020.  Dr. Sell has 22 years of injury prevention research and 16 years of research experience with the military primarily in U.S. Special Forces.  He currently has a three year grant to examine the effects of head supported mass on cervical spine musculoskeletal health with the goal of redesigning equipment and developing interventions to prevent cervical spine injuries. During his research career, Dr. Sell has focused on the role of functional joint stability in the prevention of musculoskeletal injuries; in recovery following injury; and in re-establishing neuromuscular control following surgery.  He has conducted research in many different populations from youth athletes to masters athletes; recreational active individuals to professional athletes; and in military servicemen and women. He has extensive experience in biomechanical, postural stability, neuromuscular, and musculoskeletal assessments with a particular focus on lower extremity injuries.  Currently, he is helping to build a Performance Center at Atrium Health that will include research, rehabilitation, and high-performance training.
