Mr Ronald van Heerwaarden is an industry-leading consultant orthopaedic and specialist knee surgeon.
Mr van Heerwaarden is a globally recognised authority for his innovative approach to knee osteotomy, limb deformity correction and knee joint preservation. In fact, he is one of the few surgeons worldwide to have dedicated his entire practice to these three specialisms. His clinics are in London, Abu Dhabi and the Netherlands and he is frequently invited to perform surgery around the world.
Not only are adults referred to him for post-trauma limb deformities and joint preservation treatment for conditions such as knee osteoarthritis, but also children aged 12-18 for the treatment of lower limb bone deformities. Approximately 80 per cent of his current caseload is patients referred from other surgeons seeking his expert opinion and course of treatment.
He has worked as a consultant specialising in knee osteotomy in the International Knee and Joint Centre in Abu Dhabi since 2016, when he also moved to Kliniek ViaSana, in Mill, the Netherlands to start a new Centre for deformity correction and joint preserving surgery. In recent years, he has expanded his practice to London at the well-known Orthopaedic Specialists (OS) clinic.
Mr van Heerwaarden is a pioneer in the development of new surgical techniques and instruments. He is also a highly sought-after speaker, teacher and much-published author in his field. He is particularly recognised as a teacher and innovator in the area of limb deformity corrections.
