This presentation will take you through case studies of David’s current and past patients, talking you through the initial examination stages through to management stages. Particular areas of interest include patella tendinopathy, its management and diagnosis.
David qualified from The Royal Free Hospital, London in June 1990 having also undertaken a BSc at St. Mary’s Hospital. His specialist Orthopaedic training was based at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital Stanmore and he was appointed a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons in May 1999.
David completed a fellowship in arthroplasty and sports medicine at SPORTSMED.SA, Adelaide, South Australia. The fellowship involved the treatment of patients with hip and knee arthritis, with operations using a range of different implants to suit the patients’ needs. Athletes from a diversity of sporting backgrounds were treated. Knee ligament and “cartilage” injuries were particularly common and SPORTSMED had a national reputation for the treatment of these conditions.
He has been Honorary Orthopaedic Surgeon at Northampton Saints Rugby Club since 2004. He play(ed) many sports and represented England in the Rugby Students World Cup in 1988 and played for Saracens Rugby Football Club first XV. This sporting background allows him to understand the effect an injury has both physically and psychologically on an athlete. He has obtained a Diploma in Sports and Exercise Medicine.
