“Children are often referred to me by my fellow knee surgeons because this new ACL procedure has proved so successful.”
Professor Adrian Wilson

As children become more involved in extreme sports such as skiing and snowboarding and are generally more active at a younger age, Adrian has seen increasing cases of ligament damage, particularly to the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL).

Adrian is widely respected around the world for being the first surgeon to carry out anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) internal brace repair for sports injuries in children. He has the largest global experience in ACL repair with the internal brace technique in children and speaks frequently at conferences and courses about his results and experience. This new minimally invasive surgery is especially successful in enabling children to rapidly return to their normal activities. Recovery is 50% quicker than with traditional ACL surgery, something that is revolutionising the treatment of this common injury.

“My own daughter had a skiing accident aged 11 (she’s now 16) and needed ACL reconstruction. As a result, there have been few team sports – apart from swimming – that she can take part in. If ACL repair had been available at the time, I’d have chosen it for her. I am very proud of pioneering it – it’s been the best experience in terms of results.”

Adrian also has particular expertise treating a range of other children’s knee problems.
