Mr Richard Villar qualified in medicine at St. Thomas's Hospital in London (UK) before joining the military as the Regimental Medical Officer to the SAS. He completed his surgical studies in Southampton and Cambridge after leaving the army and joined the consultant staff of Addenbrooke's Hospital (Cambridge) in 1988.

It was there that he developed his interest in conservative hip surgery and now has one of the largest experiences of hip arthroscopic (keyhole) procedures in the world.

Now in independent practice, Mr Villar is a Founding Member, and first President, of the International Society for Hip Arthroscopy. He has served as a member of Council of the British Orthopaedic Association, is an assessor for the General Medical Council, and is a member of the United Kingdom's Disaster Emergency Response Team.

In this latter capacity he was operational in the aftermaths of the Kashmir, Java and Haiti earthquakes. Mr Villar regards orthopaedic surgery as both his profession and hobby.
