Mr Adil Ajuied specialises in all aspects of knee surgery. He has worked as a Consultant at Guy's and St Thomas' Hospitals since February 2009 and also practices at the Fortius Clinic London.

Mr Ajuied qualified as a Doctor in 1998 from Guy's and St Thomas' medical school. While in training he completed a postgraduate Master' degree, and has been appointed a Senior Honorary Clinical Lecturer in Trauma and Orthopaedics as well as Director of Education for South London Orthopaedics, in recognition for his contributions to higher surgical training. He currently sits as an executive board member of the British Association of Surgery of the Knee (BASK).

Mr Ajuied has travelled and worked in many countries from Belgium to South Africa on specialist fellowship training and charitable work. In 2008 he worked in South Africa (University Hospital of Witwaterstrand, Johannesburg), where he held an appointment as an Honorary Consultant. While in South Africa he established a new dedicated Knee Injury Service, which continues to serve the local community growing from strength to strength, and with which he still has strong links.

His special interests include knee arthroscopy (keyhole surgery), ACL reconstruction, knee injuries, meniscal repair, ligament repair and reconstruction, cartilage treatments, orthopaedic trauma, limb injury and reconstruction, and joint replacement.

While in clinical practice, Mr Ajuied has developed a number of care innovations, including new surgical techniques and a unique rapid rehabilitation programme for patients undergoing knee surgery. At present he is engaged in a number of research projects, including international collaborations in multi-centre trials. Mr Ajuied lectures and instructs nationally and internationally on topics relating to knee surgery.
