Mr Lopez gained his undergraduate medical qualifications in 2007 from Imperial College, London, with a period of elective study also undertaken at Harvard University, Boston USA. During his time at Imperial, he was also awarded an honours degree in medical sciences and minimally invasive surgery.
His early postgraduate training was undertaken in London on the South-East Thames training programme, where he gained his membership of the Royal College of Surgeons (England). His higher surgical Orthopaedic training was undertaken on the Cambridge orthopaedic rotation. He was the chief musculoskeletal resident during his time in Cambridge. This is a clinical leadership programme set up in conjunction with the Judge Business School, University of Cambridge and Addenbrookes Hospital. He was awarded his Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons (Trauma & Orthopaedics) in 2016.

The scope of his fellowship training covered all aspects of primary and revision(re-do) joint replacement surgery, peri-prosthetic joint infection (infection following joint replacement) surgery, as well as Orthopaedic oncology and sarcoma surgery.
