Academia is core to Adrian’s practice. His Honorary Professorial Chair at the University of Winchester brings Adrian into contact with undergraduate and graduate students, as well as expert researchers worldwide.
He is the founder of the Knee Preservation Foundation, a founder member of the Osteotomy Expert Group, Vice Chairman of the European Society of Sports Traumatology, Knee Surgery and Arthroscopy (ESSKA) Osteotomy Committee and Honorary Chair at Winchester University.
In June 2017, Adrian supported the ESSKA Travelling Fellowship, his Unit having been chosen as one of four leading centres in Europe to showcase their techniques and experience.
Adrian is also a course convenor for the annual Basingstoke Knee Osteotomy Masterclass, , now in its 11th year. The last event in December 2017 included a live femoral & tibial simultaneous correction, which was the first time this had been done in the UK.
Adrian regularly presents both nationally and internationally. Most recently Adrian gave lectures on paediatric anterior cruciate ligament (ACL); ALL reconstruction and results, osteotomies around the knee and high tibial osteotomy versus iBalance® UniKnee at the Arthrex Technology Symposium, which took place in Cape Town in December 2017. He also presented a case study within the session “Meet the Lower Extremities Experts.”
In November 2017, Adrian presented at one day course on soft tissue knee reconstructions and innovations in Linz, and gave a lecture on ACL repair and the use of FibreTape.
He also spoke at the Warwick Sports Knee Meeting 20th and 21st November 2017 on anterolateral ligament reconstruction (ALL) and primary repair of the ACL in paediatric patients.
