Mr Owen Wall
Knee,Cruciate,ACL Repair,Knee Soft Tissue,
I studied medicine at the University of Leeds, obtaining an intercalated Bachelor of Science degree (with honours) in 1996 and then graduating with a further honours degree in medicine and surgery in 1998. I then gained a place on the Yorkshire School of Surgery basic surgical training programme and became a member of the Royal College of Surgeons (London) in 2002. As a Specialist Registrar, my higher surgical training in Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgery was also completed within the Yorkshire region. I passed my Fellowship exams in 2008 and was added to the GMC Specialist Register in 2010. I then undertook post-accreditation fellowship training in all aspects of knee surgery (including keyhole surgery) by completing two prestigious fellowship periods. The first was a 6 month fellowship in Harrogate, where I worked with Mr Nick London. The second was a prestigious national fellowship working alongside the late Mr Stuart Calder and Mr Ram Venkatesh for 16 months at Leeds Teaching Hospitals Trust. I was appointed as a Consultant trauma and knee surgeon at Leeds Teaching Hospitals Trust in September 2014. I am also an Honorary Senior Lecturer at the University of Leeds and undertake academic teaching of undergraduate medical students and post-graduate orthopaedic trainees. I serve as a faculty member on many national and regional orthopaedic courses and am also involved in the development of techniques for cartilage regeneration. My research work has been presented at international meetings and published in peer-reviewed journals.
