He has contributed book chapters on orthopaedics, trauma and medical law to volumes published by Oxford University Press and PasTest, and has himself published 3 orthopaedic textbooks as lead author or editor.

Key aspects of Sebastian's practice include:
'Total hip and knee replacement

His approach is centred around a firm belief that effective, empathic communication with patients before surgery is key to achieving successful postoperative outcomes.
