Mr Esler also treats Sports injuries and performs Foot surgery.
I was trained in orthopaedic surgery in Nottingham, Exeter, Bournemouth and Leicester and have worked in Leicester since 1995. I was awarded funding in 1994 to undertake research on knee replacement surgery and evaluate types of knee replacement. In 1997 I was awarded a fellowship at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) regarding hip and knee surgery. I was appointed as a consultant in Leicester in 2000.
My practice embraces all aspects of knee surgery arthroscopy and minimally invasive procedures, hip replacement and foot and ankle surgery. I have particular interest in young patients with knee problems and those with failed knee replacements.
I co-ordinate the activities of the Trent Arthroplasty Study which looks at the outcomes of hip and knee replacement surgery. I have presented my research on knee replacement in patients aged less than 55 years both nationally and internationally. The aims of my research are to improve the results of surgery and to provide patients with a better understanding of what to expect from surgery.
