Mr Joel Melton
Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon
BM, MRCS (Ed), MSc (Orth Eng), FRCS (Trauma and Orth)
I am a specialist knee surgeon and a consultant at Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Trust. I have a masters degree in Orthopaedic Engineering.
I was trained in the Wessex region during which time I was awarded the FRCS in Trauma and Orthopaedics followed by the CCT in Orthopaedics and Trauma surgery. After this, I spent a year of fellowship training in knee surgery in Sydney, Australia working at the world renowned North Sydney Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Centre. Here, I gained further experience in all aspects of sports medicine, the management of knee ligament injuries, the management of knee arthritis and knee replacement surgery. I have also spent time completing fellowship training in limb reconstruction techniques in Russia and as an AO fellow in Marseille, France.
