Our Publications

It is our consultants' belief that an active academic interest is one of the foundation stones underlying a sound, safe, effective clinical practice. The fields of orthopaedic surgery and sports medicine are developing rapidly, and a thorough knowledge of both the historical and contemporary literature is essential if one is to be able to make the best possible decisions for one's patients.

Our consultants have an extensive academic track record, with a large number of scientific publications in peer reviewed medical journals:-
