    Ian is one of the top Knee Surgeons in the UK and renowned for his pioneering work in the field of knee surgery. He specialises in complex knee cases (with patients often coming to him for a 2nd opinion); complex multiple reconstructions, complex revision cases and cutting-edge biological knee replacement surgery.

    Ian was the youngest ever surgeon to be elected as a Council Member and Trustee of the Royal College of Surgeons of England. He has pioneered the use of custom-made knee replacements in the UK, and he is part of the Conformis Surgical Visitation Program, training other surgeons in the techniques for custom-made knee replacement surgery. Ian has ‘Centre of Excellence’ status from Hospital Innovations for meniscal transplantation surgery, and he has also been awarded ‘Centre of Excellence’ status by Vivostat for pioneering the use of biological glues in knee surgery in the UK.

    Ian is the Founder and Managing Partner of the London Sports Orthopaedics practice which is now one of the UK’s leading private orthopaedic and sports injuries practices. He is also a trustee of the Sports Orthopaedics Research Foundation (SORF) – an independent charity set up by the consultants at London Sports Orthopaedics – which is committed to the study and development of excellence in modern clinical Orthopaedic and Sports Injury practice through the promotion of training, education, audit and research.

    Ian has always maintained very strong academic interests. He was awarded the British Association for Surgery of the Knee (BASK) President’s Medal for his research into meniscal repair, and he was awarded a Master of Surgery higher degree by Imperial College for his work on ‘The Biomechanics of Meniscal Transplantation’. Ian is on the Editorial Board of The American Journal of Sports Medicine and also the Orthopaedics and Trauma journal, plus he also reviews for several other journals. Ian has published and presented extensively, both in the UK and internationally, and Ian is also an Honorary Professor Associate in the School of Sport & Education at Brunel University. In addition, he is also the current President of the UK Biological Knee Society.

    Ian trained at St Bartholomew’s Hospital Medical School and qualified in 1992. His postgraduate medical training was then undertaken in various hospitals across the UK, including Southend, Peterborough, Northampton, Nottingham and Oxford. In 1998 Ian started specialist training in Trauma & Orthopaedics as a Specialist Registrar in the North West Thames region. Ian completed his specialist training in 2003, and was then awarded his Certificate of Completion of Specialist Training (CCST) and was entered onto the Specialist Register of the General Medical Council. Ian was appointed as a Consultant in the Orthopaedic Department at Ealing Hospital in April 2005, and took up his position there in June 2005.
