Mr Christian Kinmont was educated at Clifton College, Bristol. He qualified from St. George’s Hospital Medical School, London in 1989 and undertook his specialist orthopaedic surgical training in the South West Thames region. Further posts as a clinical research fellow at St. Mary’s Hospital, Paddington and subsequently in Melbourne, enabled him to develop a specialist interest in knee and sports surgery.
He was appointed to the Orthopaedic Department of Croydon University Hospital as the new knee surgeon in 2004. His private practice, entirely devoted to knee surgery, is focused at BMI Shirley Oaks Hospital with a regular presence through the week. Mr Kinmont's main interests are in arthroscopic ligament reconstruction and partial knee replacement using minimally invasive techniques. Additionally he maintains an interest in complex lower limb trauma and knee injuries. He performs approximately 120 knee replacements, 100 knee ligament reconstructions and several hundred arthroscopies per year. Additionally, he is actively involved in teaching and training within the NHS. He also currently sits on the hospital Medical Advisory Committee. He is married with two young sons.
He remains, from childhood, a keen road cyclist and, as a member of London Dynamo, can occasionally be found towards the back of the peloton in cyclosportive events in rural France.
