Our People – Meet the Team

With over 60 years of combined orthopaedic experience and 17 years of nursing experience, our team, based at the Exeter Airport Business Park, undertakes the pre- operative planning of Total Hip and Total Knee surgery using 3D pre- operative planning software which produces a unique insight into the reconstructive parameters, potential pitfalls and optimum outcomes for our orthopaedic consultants to assess, prior to actual surgery.

“We take care of any special operation booking arrangements, the provision of specialist instrumentation and the re- stocking of our existing hospital customers nationwide, we can even arrange for patients to ‘experience’ watching at close quarters, the actual manufacturing of their prosthesis”!

Justin Quick

Justin Quick, Managing Director explains, ”Our implants have particular benefits for younger, active people who are looking to continue their busy lives without compromise. One recent patient is a young helicopter pilot based at RNAS Yeovilton, who has had two very successful hip operations – he is now back in active service. Another is a 17-year-old girl, for whom cosmetic and future child-bearing issues were very important.”

Russell Miller

In April 2016, Symbios were delighted to secure the services of Russell Miller, previously employed as Sales Director, Microport Orthopaedics (formerly Wright Medical Technology). Russell brings a wealth of experience and business contacts to Symbios and already we are feeling the sphere of his influence and a ‘sharpness’ & ‘focus’ to the sales success in the key geography of Central London.
