Mr Charles Gibbons

Mr Charles Gibbons qualified from London Hospital Medical College in 1989 and demonstrated anatomy at Queen Mary’s College in 1990. He did his General Surgical training in Bath and Chelmsford and became Orthopaedic Registrar at Kingston and Wexham Park Hospitals. He then completed his Fellowship training in Melbourne (Knee Fellow with John Bartlett) and Adelaide (Trauma and adult reconstruction with Michael Sandow) 2000-2001. He was appointed Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital in 2002. His main interests include knee surgery (soft tissue knee surgery and knee joint replacement) and hip replacement. Mr Gibbons also practises at The Lister Hospital.

Philosophical approach to medicine: Not all patients with degenerative knee changes require total knee replacement and partial knee surgery (in particular medial compartment) may be the best option.
