Although he transferred to full-time private practice in 2007, he still maintains an Honorary NHS Contract at the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital and holds the position of Honorary Clinical Lecturer at the University of Birmingham. Duncan is considered an authority in Knee and Shoulder Surgery in the UK and frequently teaches at Regional Orthopaedic Training Programs and demonstrates in Arthroscopic Surgery Workshops.

He has published numerous papers on knee and shoulder conditions and has contributed book chapters on knee trauma and articular cartilage disease. Duncan's goal in establishing the Birmingham Knee and Shoulder Clinic was to help patients and referring practitioners identify surgeons with subspecialty expertise.

His specialties include trauma and orthopaedic surgery, with sub-specialties in knee, shoulder, and elbow surgeries. He is well-known for his skill in procedures such as rotator cuff repair, ligament reconstruction (including anterior cruciate ligament), knee arthroscopy, and knee replacement surgery.
