About me

James is an internationally recognized specialist knee surgeon. His NHS practice is based at the Avon Orthopaedic Centre in Bristol - a referral centre for complex knee problems in the South West of the UK. He has particular interest in ligament reconstruction, partial knee replacement, arthroscopic “key-hole” surgery, cartilage and meniscus repair and the treatment of early arthritis. He is regularly invited to lecture and teach at meetings around the world and this has given him an invaluable exposure to the latest evidence and state-of -the-art treatments.

James is a winner of the British Association of Surgery of the Knee President’s medal. He has published many research articles and book chapters on knee surgery and has received awards both nationally and internationally for knee research. His other roles include: member of the Arthroscopy committee for ESSKA (European Society for Sports Traumatology, Knee Surgery and Arthroscopy), chairman of the ESSKA Collateral ligaments Working Group, member of the International Meniscus Reconstruction Forum (IMRef) and member of the prestigious international ACL Study. He is a reviewer for the American Journal of Sports Medicine, and on the steering committee for the UK National Ligament registry - improving best practices by constant analysis of knee ligament reconstruction outcomes.

James undertook his orthopaedic training in London where he was also Clinical Research Fellow in Sports Trauma Surgery at the Imperial College of Science Technology and Medicine. Here he published his thesis on knee ligament injuries and was awarded a Master of Surgery degree by the University of London. Following this he spent a year’s fellowship in Bordeaux at the ‘Clinique du Sport’. He spent a further six month’s fellowship in the UK specialising in partial (unicompartmental) knee replacement.

James acts as a consultant to several orthopaedic industry companies and has developed surgical techniques and instruments for knee ligament reconstruction, cartilage treatment, meniscal repair and partial knee replacements. He has been invited to demonstrate surgery in Europe, Asia and North America and has been an invited international lecturer at The Australian Knee Society, The Norwegian Arthroscopy Society, The Turkish Arthroscopy Society amongst many other international meetings.
