Nick Evans

BSc, MBBS, FRCS (Orth)

I am orthopaedic surgeon with a special interest in Sports Injuries / Arthroscopy / Soft Tissue Reconstruction of the Knee and Shoulder. I studied medicine at the University of London, and trained in orthopaedic surgery at the University Hospital of Wales.

Since completing Higher Surgical Training in 2000, my career path has included 7 years in North America, wherein I gained additional training in Arthroscopy & Arthroplasty by way of two Fellowship programs. The first was a knee and shoulder fellowship at Dalhousie University in Nova Scotia, Canada. The second was a knee surgery fellowship at the Southern California Center for Sports Medicine. In 2002, I was appointed Visiting Assistant Professor at UCLA Department of Orthopaedic Surgery. During these years at Los Angeles Orthopaedic Hospital, I provided a Knee/Shoulder Sports Injuries Service.

Since my return to the United Kingdom in 2007, I have worked as a locum consultant surgeon at the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital in Birmingham, providing Knee/Shoulder Arthroscopy and Arthroplasty.

As a scientist, I have fostered research in orthopaedic surgery, sports injury and performance enhancement. I have written more than 20 scientific articles published in reputable journals including Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery, Arthroscopy, American Journal of Sports Medicine, British Journal of Sports Medicine, Journal of Knee Surgery, and Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise. As an author, I have contributed chapters to several instructional textbooks including “Arthroscopic Treatment of ACL Injuries” in Operative Arthroscopy, and “Arthroscopic Chondroplasty” in Master Techniques: Reconstructive Knee Surgery.

I am also the author of two best-selling fitness books.

I am involved in teaching and training at many different levels including medical students, nurses, physiotherapists, doctors, specialist trainees, orthopaedic surgeons, and lay public. I have also been an invited guest speaker at numerous national meeting and seminars.
