Background Information 
Professional profile:

Mr Bourke is a UK-trained orthopaedic surgeon specialising exclusively in problems with the knee. He qualified from Imperial College School of Medicine in London in 2002 and went on to complete his specialist orthopaedic training in the South West Thames region. On completion of the FRCS exam he travelled to Australia to work in the world famous North Sydney Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Centre under the guidance of Professor Leo Pinczewski.

Mr Bourke was appointed as a substantive consultant at Heatherwood & Wexham Park Hospitals NHS Trust in October 2013.  He has published numerous articles on knee surgery and continues to actively participate in research. He specialises in treating problems of the knee in all age groups.

Philosophy: ‘I follow carefully the advancement in treatment of all conditions affecting the knee. I read numerous scientific journals and regularly attend both national and international meetings to keep my own techniques as up to date as possible. My job as a surgeon is to only apply surgical techniques and treatments that have been tried and tested successfully, with good results in renowned orthopaedic units worldwide. I will always try to consider more than one option for a knee problem and present these to each patient in an understandable way, in particular the likely outcome of not having an operation.’

  • Cartilage regeneration procedures
  • Osteotomy around the knee
  • Partial and Total Knee Replacement
