About me

Mr Paul Nicolai has been working as a Consultant Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgeon in Bury St Edmunds since 2003. His work concentrates on the lower limb with a special interest in knee and sports injuries. He also participates in trauma care on a rotational basis.

Mr Nicolai was awarded a Travel Fellowship by the British Association for Surgery of the Knee and visited six top knee surgeons in the United Kingdom and mainland Europe. He regularly performs keyhole surgery operations (arthroscopy), knee joint replacements (partial and total) and realigment operations around the knee (osteotomy). The results of his partial knee replacements are one of the best in the country and the Physica ZUK unicondylar knee prosthesis he uses has by far the best results in the National Joint Registry.

Mr Nicolai is a member of the ODEP and Beyond Compliance committees. These are national organisations which are responsible for quality ratings of knee prostheses and the safe introduction of newly developed prostheses. He is a reviewer for the Knee Journal to assess scientific research suitable for publication. He is a member of a European expert panel for the Physica ZUK partial knee replacement and has written chapters in consensus documents published globally. He has published over 25 articles in peer-reviewed international journals. He is involved in teaching orthopaedic surgeons, trainees, operating theatre personnel and physiotherapists and has been a faculty member on national and international courses. He runs sports injury clinics for adults and children.
