About me

Rob Gilbert is a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon who specialises in soft tissue and reconstructive knee surgery. He works as a consultant at the Sports Knee Clinic, Wrightington Hospital and frequently manages complex cases referred from across the north of England.

Initially from Cumbria, Rob qualified from St Bartholomew's Medical School (London) in 2001. He completed his basic surgical training in the North West before being selected for specialist orthopaedic training on the Oswestry Orthopaedic Rotation in 2006. Whilst at Oswestry, Rob trained under eminent sport/knee surgeon Mr Dai Rees, which helped shape Rob's career in sports knee surgery.

As Rob specialises in sports knee injuries and reconstructive knee surgery, he does not perform joint replacement surgery.

In 2011 Rob was awarded the BOSTAA (British Orthopaedic Sport Trauma and Arthroscopy Association) travelling fellowship in sports surgery. This enabled him to visit centres of excellence throughout the USA, and learn from leading knee surgeons.

Rob is committed to teaching and training. He is the programme director for the Wrightington Sports Knee Fellowship programme where orthopaedic surgeons gain specialist training in sports knee surgery.
