A true innovator, Adrian is acknowledged for his work by his fellow surgeons, many of whom he trains to perform his procedures. More importantly for Adrian is the fact patients benefit from and appreciate his skills as a knee surgeon.
Adrian has a particular interest in children’s knee problems. Among other innovations, he has developed a minimally invasive technique to treat anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries that has a fast recovery time and excellent long-term results.
Most recently he has set up a dedicated centre for osteotomy surgery at The Wellington Hospital in London and has also set up “The Children’s Knee Centre” based at The Portland Hospital for Women and Children in London. This brings together a group of knee surgeons to focus on the management of the paediatric knee including a programme for ACL damage prevention in the UK.
Adrian is a member of the European Society for Sports Traumatology, Knee Surgery and Arthroscopy (ESSKA). Academy editorial board and Arthroscopy committee. He is also one of the founding members of the UK Knee Osteotomy Registry (UKKOR), the first national database dedicated to knee realignment (osteotomy) surgery. The Group has established a dataset that is now the largest followed group of osteotomy patients worldwide. He also runs a successful Fellowship programme for senior orthopaedic surgeons in training. Adrian runs a masterclass in osteotomy training for surgeons which attracts interests from surgeons all over the world (www.basingstokeknee.org).
