He is a corresponding fellow of the Faculty of Sports and Exercise Medicine.
For the final year of his training Mr Mundy undertook a senior fellowship in joint replacement surgery at world renowned Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital Stanmore in London. This fellowship enabled him to develop expertise in all aspects of joint replacement surgery including complex primary reconstruction, rheumatoid surgery, hip resurfacing, and the demanding techniques needed to undertake revision hip and knee joint replacement surgery. He also learnt the techniques of massive prostheses for tumour and limb salvage which he uses in his metastatic tumour and trauma practice at Northampton.
He was appointed as a consultant revision hip and knee specialist surgeon in 2010. He has significant experience in joint replacement surgery having undertaken over 2000 primary joint replacements and 300 revision (redo) joint replacements and is the senior revision surgeon based in Northampton. He undertakes revision knee and hip replacements on patients with worn or infected joint replacements for example and has a wealth of experience of treating patients whom have sustained a fracture around their hip or knee replacements – known as a periprosthetic fracture. In 2016 along with colleagues in Leicester and Kettering he was instrumental in setting up the East Midlands South Orthopaedic Network (EMSSON) The network of revision surgeons from Leicester, Kettering and Northampton and an infectious diseases consultant meet weekly to discuss complex hip and knee related problems in the region.
He also has a specialist interest in musculoskeletal tumours and is the musculoskeletal/metastatic tumour lead at Northampton. He established a two week wait soft tissue/ sarcoma referral clinic at Northampton General hospital in 2011 which is now part of the East Midlands Sarcoma network. He has a weekly soft tissue sarcoma referral clinic at Northampton General Hospital and treats benign soft tissue swellings such as lipomas. He undertakes complex joint replacements including proximal femoral replacements and distal femoral replacements for those patients with metastatic tumours, as well as offering prophylactic fixation. This involves close working with the oncology department.
