Professor Adrian Wilson is a highly specialised orthopaedic surgeon, who has a global reputation for his innovative approach to knee surgery.
Adrian specialises in all aspects of soft tissue and reconstructive knee surgery including knee realignment (osteotomy) surgery and has pioneered techniques to improve treatment for sports injuries to the knee.
Adrian has developed a number of devices used in knee ligament and realignment (osteotomy) surgery to carry out his minimally invasive techniques; these are increasingly being performed by surgeons worldwide.
New procedures for treating anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries have included an innovative technique for Anterolateral Ligament (ALL) replacement, first carried out in November 2012. This technique has since become routine practice globally for many leading knee surgeons and is particularly successful in children, many of whom are referred to Adrian from other specialists.
Adrian regularly performs live surgery at major meetings, as well as running his own surgical training events including The Knee Osteotomy Masterclass, a two-day workshop held annually in Basingstoke.
Professor Wilson has a particular interest in knee osteotomy surgery and is considered one of the leading world experts in this surgery and the management of the young arthritic knee. He is a co-founder of the UK knee osteotomy registry (UKKOR) the first dedicated national database for osteotomy surgery. He has developed a number of instruments for osteotomy surgery and pioneered a minimally invasive technique for High Tibial Osteotomy Surgery. He co-founded the Basingstoke Osteotomy Masterclass in 2007. Professor Wilson handed on the role of vice chairman of the ESSKA osteotomy committee in 2017 he has a recognised centre for the ESSKA Osteotomy travelling fellowship.
Professor Wilson is also a member of the ESSKA Academy editorial board and the ESSKA Arthroscopy committee.
