Christopher Wilson

Chris Wilson is a highly experienced orthopaedic surgeon specialising in surgery of the lower limb, sports related injuries and reconstructive surgery following trauma. He has a particular expertise in knee surgery.

Mr Wilson has been a Consultant Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgeon at University of Wales NHS Trust since 1996. At the unit, which is one of the busiest in the UK, he 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, specifically of knee 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.

Clinical interests

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.

Knee surgery

Mr Wilson is an innovative and experienced knee surgeon offering all the latest surgical techniques for the treatment of trauma and degenerative changes to the knee joint, including computer-guided knee replacement, re-alignment osteotomy, partial knee replacement and ligament surgery.  He is also actively involved in the use and development of cutting edge procedures to repair cartilage and meniscus damage, such as articular cartilage restoration using stem cells and meniscal transplantation.

Mr Wilson has a special interest in the treatment of sports injuries to the knee, successfully treating elite athletes, rugby players, footballers and ice hockey players.  He always works closely with physiotherapists to produce the best possible outcome for his patients, be they professional sportspeople, weekend amateurs, or less active people with painful and worn out knees.

Research interests

Mr Wilson holds a number of grants for research into trauma and trauma-related fields. He has contributed several articles on trauma and related topics to peer-reviewed journals and has presented this work at four annual meetings.
