Adrian qualified as a doctor in 1986 after winning a place to read medicine at Queens’ College Cambridge, and subsequently St Thomas’ Hospital Medical School in London.
After Orthopaedic Fellowship in Australia and the US, in 1997 he was appointed as a Consultant and Honorary Senior Lecturer to St George’s Hospital, London.
