Nick London is a specialist knee surgeon with particular expertise in sports injuries and knee replacement surgery. He has extensive experience, developed over 19 years as a consultant, performing hundreds of ACL reconstructions and thousands of arthroscopic surgeries and knee replacements (from partial replacements through to complex revision procedures).
Mr London has the ability to manage all orthopaedic knee conditions from those developing in children and adolescents, through sports injuries in athletes of all abilities (elite professionals to ‘weekend warriors’) and ultimately to knee replacement in patients with severe arthritis is crucial to providing a complete service.
In addition to working with elite sportsmen (in rugby, football, cricket etc…) he has a particular interest in managing the young, active patient with arthritis and works with the orthopaedic industry to develop and evaluate the latest treatments and techniques.
Following training at Cambridge University, a Yorkshire surgical rotation and a Fellowship year in Australia, he was appointed Consultant in Orthopaedic and Trauma Surgery at Harrogate District Hospital in 2000 and maintains a busy and active NHS practice. In addition to clinical practice he has extensive teaching, training, development and research commitments.
He has worked closely with Zimmer, DePuy and Moximed (orthopaedic implant companies) and has consultancy, educational and developmental roles. Contracts with these companies are fully disclosed and approved by Harrogate District Foundation Trust, to avoid any potential conflict of interest.
In 2003 he set up an international fellowship in Harrogate to give senior orthopaedic trainees the opportunity to study knee surgery and be involved in ongoing research and development activities. This is a 6-month fellowship and has now attracted more than 30 knee fellows with both local and international backgrounds.
In 2018 Nick was appointed Visiting Professor to the Carnegie School of Sport at Leeds Beckett University.
