Dr Jonathan Mulford
I am a orthopaedic surgeon that specialises in all aspects of knee surgery. I have a particular interest in sports knee injuries, meniscal injuries, knee ligament reconstruction, patellofemoral problems (knee cap dislocation) management of cartilage lesions and treatment of knee arthritis with joint replacement.
I also have a strong interest in hip and knee arthroplasty, and wrist surgery. I perform knee arthroscopic (key-hole) surgery, ligament reconstructions (anterior cruciate, posterior cruciate, lateral collateral, posterolateral corner), patellar stabilisations (MPFL reconstruction, tibial tubercle osteotomy), osteotomy for arthritis, partial (uni) knee replacement and total knee replacement. I have experience in minimally invasive techniques and computer assisted surgery.
I have expertise in all types of ligament graft types for reconstructive surgery. This includes hamstring tendons, patella tendon, quadriceps tendon, allograft and LARS ligament (artificial ligament).
I also have a strong interest in wrist surgery. I perform all types of wrist surgery including wrist arthroscopy, fixation of wrist fractures (distal radius and scaphoid), scapholunate reconstruction, ganglion excision and carpal tunnel release.
