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.
Leading the way in teaching osteotomy surgery, Adrian has made a series of highly detailed videos that explain his techniques; these are used by other knee surgeons as a guide to performing this challenging surgery. He won the prestigious Alwin Jaeger Award for best surgical training video at the European Society of Sports Traumatology, Knee Surgery and Arthroscopy (ESSKA) meeting in 2014 as well as the Best Paper award.
Adrian holds an honorary professorship within the Department of Sport and Exercise at The University of Winchester and has several on-going research projects at Imperial College, London. He also runs a successful fellowship programme for senior orthopaedic surgeons in training. He regularly presents at national and international meetings and is a frequent faculty member of a number of high profile knee courses in the UK.
He has published extensively and is a member of the ESSKA Academy editorial board as well as being Vice-Chair of their Osteotomy Committee.
In his spare time, Adrian enjoys playing the piano, travelling and spending time with his family.
