"His main interest is surgery for sporting injuries and knee reconstructions. 'It's rewarding getting people back on their feet and out of pain.'
Mr Matthew Bartlett qualified from Oxford in 1991 and underwent his basic and higher surgical training in London. In 2003 he was appointed as a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon with a special interest in knee surgery at North West London Hospitals NHS Trust.
Shortly after appointment he went on sabbatical to Australia spending time in centres of excellence in knee surgery in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Brisbane. This furthered his interest in sports injury and computer assisted knee surgery.

He continues to consult to the Olympic Medical Institute on an ad hoc basis.
