Consultant Orthopaedic Knee and Trauma Surgeon

Specialist in Surgery of the Knee

The knee joint is often one of the more overlooked miracles of the human body. It comprises of muscles, ligaments, tendons and complex articular cartilage all working in perfect harmony to achieve the wonder of modern man (and woman): bipedal locomotion.

Ever since my early days of medical school I have been fascinated by the human knee both its mechanical properties and how its complex interactions serve us throughout life.

This website is here to help you find out more information about the normal knee, common knee injuries and evidence based advice on how your painful, stiff or swollen knee can be treated.

I do hope you find these pages informative and do not hesitate to contact me for further advice.

Kind regards
