Over 50% of Glyn’s patients see him with regard to sports related injuries. His experience, knowledge and proven expertise have helped professional sports people, sports veterans and many other patients overcome a broad range of knee injuries and degenerative conditions.

Glyn qualified in Cardiff and trained in Liverpool, Edinburgh and Nottingham. He was then appointed Lecturer in Orthopaedic Surgery at the University of Southampton with a major interest in tibial fractures.

 

He became an NHS Consultant in 1990 and his NHS Consultancies included St Mary’s Hospital Isle of Wight, the Treloar Hospital Alton and the Royal Hospital Haslar. Since 2004, Glyn has been exclusively treating knees from his clinic in central London

 

Each year Glyn does over 1,200 outpatient consultations and performs around 300 knee operations including arthroscopies (keyhole operations), ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) reconstructions, partial and total knee replacements and correction of bony deformities (osteotomies).

 

Glyn is recognised as a leading specialist in knee injuries. As well as being a highly skilled knee surgeon, his success, in part, is due to his friendly and approachable manner. As one of Glyn’s patients, you can expect to be treated as an individual.

 

Glyn takes a holistic approach that ensures that your knee is never treated in isolation.  Your lifestyle, goals and unique circumstances are all factors that will determine how to successfully treat you; this is particularly relevant to sports related injuries. 

 

People have widely differing requirements from their knees. Professional sportspeople and young, active patients require far greater functionality than less active individuals.  Glyn carries out a rigorous assessment and discusses all the options available before jointly deciding with you the optimal treatment for your particular needs.

Anterior cruciate repair – a keyhole repair procedure which uses part of your natural hamstring tendons to replace the damaged anterior cruciate ligament.

 

Autologous chondrocyte (cartilage cell) implantation – a procedure to replace lost articular cartilage with implanted laboratory grown cartilage.
