About me

Mr David Sands Johnson has been a Consultant orthopaedic surgeon since 2001, and has a practice almost exclusively within knee surgery.

David graduated from St. Andrews then Manchester University. His orthopaedic training was undertaken within the North West (Manchester) region, where he undertook a fellowship in knee surgery. He also graduated with a Master of Philosophy degree, from Salford University, following research into the outcomes of knee surgery.

David has a wide experience of the treatment of all types of knee complaint. The commonest knee problems he treats are sporting injuries (including cruciate ligament tears), cartilage tears, osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. The commonest procedures he performs include knee arthroscopy, anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction, total knee replacement and uni-compartmental (partial) knee replacement. The implants for knee replacement surgery he currently uses are the PFC Sigma knee (DePuy), the Avon patello-femoral replacement (Stryker) and the Oxford uni-compartmental knee replacement (Biomet). He also has an interest in complex knee replacement surgery, multiple knee ligament injuries and surgery for instability of the patella-femoral (knee-cap) joint. He accepts referrals for paediatric patients with knee injuries / problems.

Teaching forms part of David's routine work, involving education of all grades of junior doctors, medical students, as well as non-medical staff. He also teaches on a number of local and national courses relating to knee surgery. Recently he has become the NW orthopaedic specialist trainee teaching co-ordinator.

David is a member of the Executive of the British Association for Surgery of the Knee (BASK). BASK is responsible for education of the knee surgeons of the future, as well as representing and promoting the views of Britain's knee surgeons. It is also increasing its role in the provision of information for patients undergoing knee surgery and education for the general public.
