An orthopaedic surgeon, specialising in surgery of the lower limb, and sports-related injuries. Mr Wilson has wide experience in knee surgery.
Mr Christopher Wilson FRCS is a Consultant Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgeon at University Hospital of Wales NHS Trust, Cardiff, and has held this position since 1996. He also practices privately at Vale Healthcare – at the Cardiff Bay Clinic (located within Cardiff Bay) and at The Vale Hospital, in the Vale of Glamorgan, Wales.
At the University Hospital of Wales unit, which is one of the busiest in the UK, Mr Wilson is responsible for the supervision and training of specialist orthopaedic trainees and visiting trainees from overseas. He spends one day a week in theatre conducting trauma operations, normally emergencies, and a further day every week performing more routine reconstructive surgery, mainly in the fields of knee, hip, and foot surgery. The remainder of his week is spent in out-patient clinics, in carrying-out training and teaching commitments and participating in an on-call rota for emergency work.
Most of Mr Wilson’s routine operating timetable involves surgery of the major lower limb joints, with a large number of joint replacements, particularly in the more complicated cases such as those involving rheumatoid arthritis.
Special interests in orthopaedic surgery
Although Mr Wilson has a general orthopaedic practice and sees the whole range of orthopaedic diseases, he has developed special interests in surgery of the lower limb and in accident and trauma surgery, together with reconstructive surgery following trauma.
Mr Wilson has a wide-ranging and varied medico-legal practice. As an active trauma surgeon, as well as being involved with the surgery of lower limb degenerative disease, he accepts instructions on all types of personal injury cases.
Mr Wilson makes extensive use of the available international literature (in particular the American research findings) which relate to outcome studies, predictions of disability, degrees of impairment, etc., and the medical research literature facilities available at the University Hospital of Wales are as comprehensive as any in the UK.
In addition, he regularly receives instructions in medical negligence cases, and it is his usual practice to request an initial perusal of the case papers before agreeing to act in any particular case.
