About The Oxford Knee Group

We are a group of surgeons with a particular interest and expertise in knee surgery practising within the Oxford Orthopaedic Group.

All of our Surgeons practice within the NHS at the internationally renowned Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre. Here they deal with both local patients with a range of knee problems, but also more complex patients from around the country who have been referred in for specialist treatment.

They are involved in training other surgeons both nationally and internationally on partial knee replacements.
