Joel Melton

Specialist Consultant Knee Surgeon

Joel is a specialist consultant knee surgeon at Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Trust, having previously trained in the Wessex region.

He has a personal interest in biomechanics and was awarded a masters degree in Orthopaedic Engineering from the University of Cardiff.

Joel also spent a year of fellowship training in Sydney, Australia working at the world renowned North Sydney Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Centre.

There he gained 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. As a sub-specialist knee surgeon in Cambridge, I provide an acute knee service for soft tissue/multiligament knee injuries and I enjoy ongoing involvement in arthroplasty as a regional clinical coordinator (East of England) for the National Joint Registry. Joe is clinical lead for Hip and Knee services.

Joel says: “I chose OTSIS membership for the indemnity due to the ‘non-discretionary’ nature of the cover they provide combined with the personal medico-legal facilities that existed with my policy. I was keen to find cover that provided value for money combined with rapid access to quality advice should it ever be required. I have been pleased with the cover provided and am delighted to be involved with moving OTSIS forward in the interests of orthopaedic surgeons.”
