A Doncaster-based knee surgeon with a special interest in sports injuries, knee ligament reconstruction, knee arthroscopy and knee replacement surgery.

A highly-trained knee specialist
Mr Haslam qualified from Sheffield Medical School in 1994 and underwent surgical training in Derby, Leicester and Sheffield. Choosing to specialise in knee surgery, he completed his training and developed his surgical expertise on fellowship programmes in Melbourne, Auckland and Sydney.

Knee conditions treated by Mr Paul Haslam
Mr Haslam offers expert diagnosis and treatment for knee conditions, including:
- Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) rupture
- Medial patello-femoral ligament rupture
- Knee cartilage damage
- Meniscal tears
- Rheumatoid arthritis
Expert anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction
Running diagonally through the inside of the knee joint, the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) plays a crucial role in joint stability and in controlling the back-and-forth movement of the lower leg. Injuries to the ACL are very common, particularly in sports that involve stopping or changing direction suddenly, landing awkwardly from a jump, or tackling, such as football, netball, tennis and skiing. Tears to the ACL do not repair themselves and result in chronic knee instability and a depleted range of knee movement.
Mr Haslam works as part of an experienced multidisciplinary team to offer rapid assessment and expert management of ACL injuries. As a trainer in ACL reconstruction surgery, he is highly experienced in techniques to repair the ACL using a tendon harvested from elsewhere in the patient's body.
Custom-made total knee replacement in Doncaster
Modern knee replacement surgery, to replace a damaged or worn-out knee joint with an artificial implant, is one of the most commonly performed operations in the UK, restoring mobility and relieving pain for thousands of people each year.
Committed to staying abreast of the latest developments in knee surgery, Mr Haslam offers custom-made total knee replacement, an innovative procedure that ensures the best possible placement of a knee implant. Using CT scanning and state-of-the-art computer software, a three dimensional scan of the leg is created prior to surgery, which in turn is used to create personalised surgical cutting guides. The combination of pre-planning and patient-specific instrumentation offers a number of advantages including a shorter surgery time, a quicker recovery time, a more natural feeling result and better preservation of bone and ligaments. It is also thought that the very accurate placement of custom-made knee implants may improve their longevity, as even a slight misalignment can lead to uneven wear and instability.
