Mr Sam Oussedik
Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon
BSc, MBBS, MRCSEd, FRCS (Tr&Orth)
I am a fellowship trained knee surgeon, specialising in all forms of knee surgery (including knee replacement). I have spent six years working with professional and amateur sportsmen and took up my position at University College London Hospital in 2012. I'm driven by restoring my patients' function through joint preservation when possible and achieving the best possible results from joint replacement when necessary. To this end I use the latest technology and best performing implants and have great experience in providing the best possible care to professional and amateur sportsmen alike.
I specialise in all forms of knee surgery. This includes ligament reconstruction, such as anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction; multiligament knee reconstruction, meniscal surgery; cartilage surgery including cartilage restoration treatments; joint preservation through osteotomy; patellofemoral stabilisation (kneecap stabilisation) including trochleoplasty; partial joint replacement; total joint replacement; navigation assisted joint replacement. With such an array of available treatment modalities I ensure that the treatment is tailored to the individual patient's needs.
I carry out 150 joint replacements per year; over 100 ACL reconstruction per year; over 150 arthroscopic procedures per year.
I am an active researcher, including work into improving results following joint replacement surgery and the role of reparative cells in knee osteoarthritis treatment.

I'm an avid sports fan - most of my spare time is taken up by playing football, tennis and cycling with my three energetic boys.
