Professor Adrian Wilson is a consultant trauma and orthopaedic surgeon with a sub-speciality interest in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions affecting the knee. He has professional expertise in both adult and paediatric knee surgery.
He is an expert in all aspects of knee replacement surgery and has pioneered several techniques in the field of ligament surgery (including ACL, PCL and multi-ligament) as well as osteotomy surgery. As one of Europe’s foremost authorities in the field of ACL/ligament repair, he has developed revolutionary techniques for treating sports injuries. In the field of knee osteotomy surgery, he has developed minimally invasive techniques for both high tibial and distal femoral osteotomy, which allow patients to rehabilitate quicker and with less pain.
Furthermore, he has a keen interest in joint preservation surgery, particularly in the forms of meniscal transplantation and osteotomy realignment surgery. He was the first to bring adipose tissue therapy to the UK, a treatment which harnesses the body’s natural repair cells to ease arthritic pain, and recently set up The Regenerative Clinic, also in London, which offers non-surgical treatments such as Lipogems®.
He has unparalleled experience when it comes to ACL repair using the internal brace technique in children and has set up the Children’s Knee Clinic at The Portland Hospital in London. What's more, he founded the Osteotomy Expert Group and is a co-founder of the Basingstoke Osteotomy Masterclass which teaches consultants about knee osteotomy.
He is passionate about sharing his leading knowledge and expertise with future specialists and fellow consultants. He is a department chair for the Department of Sport and Exercise at Winchester University, where he has several ongoing research projects in the fields of osteotomy and ligament surgery. Professor Wilson has a visitation programme for other consultants (based in the UK and further afield) to join him and his team in his operating theatre and learn first hand about his pioneering work.
