Mr Gordon Shepard is an outstanding consultant orthopaedic surgeon based in the Greater Manchester area, who holds a special interest in sports and degenerative knee surgery.
He regularly performs arthroscopic (keyhole) surgery of the knee, knee ligament reconstruction, meniscal and articular cartilage regeneration procedures and robotic joint replacement surgery, both total and partial.
Mr Shepard gained his training in the UK, USA and Australia before settling back in the north west of England. He has always held an interest in regenerative and reconstructive techniques and has many years’ experience in what is now known as biological surgery. Mr Shepard provides a high-quality, individualised and responsive service to all of his patients, from elite athletes to the elderly.
He was appointed as one of the sports orthopaedics consultants to the Commonwealth Games in Manchester in 2002, but a call-up to serve as a surgeon in the army prevented him from doing so. Mr Shepard has also provided his orthopaedic services to professional football clubs.
