About

Professor Fares Haddad is a Hip and Knee Reconstructive Orthopaedic and Sports Surgeon at University College Hospitals. He is Divisional Clinical Director of Surgical Specialties at UCH, and Director of the Institute of Sport, Exercise and Health at University College London. 

 

Professor Haddad’s clinical and research endeavours have centred around hip and knee reconstruction, with interests in the expansion of knee and hip arthroscopic techniques to deal with sports injuries, new bearing surfaces and outcomes assessment in hip, knee and revision surgery. His work also encompasses novel strategies to manage patients with knee ligament and cartilage injuries. He provides medical input at elite level for dancers and a number of elite sports including football, athletics, rugby, boxing and martial arts. He was the musculoskeletal lead at the 2012 London Olympics and runs the IOC research centre at ISEH, in addition to being the chief medical officer for the NFL in the UK. 

 

Graduating with a First-Class BSc and MB BS from the University College London Hospitals, Professor Haddad undertook his basic training in hip and knee surgery and reconstruction on the St Bartholomew’s, Royal Free and Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital rotations, and fellowship training in the United States and Canada. He was the gold medallist in the FRCS (Orth) exam and has gained a large number of prizes and prestigious academic awards. He has been an EFORT Travelling Fellow, British Hip Society Travelling Fellow and ABC Travelling Fellow in 2004. He became a Hunterian Professor in 2005.


He has presented and published widely (over 500 peer reviewed publications) on key aspects of hip, knee and sports surgery and continues to lead a clinical research group with interests in hip and knee joint preservation after injury, prosthetic design and performance and outcomes measurement after hip / knee surgery and sports injuries. He is editor in chief of the Bone and Joint Journal.

It is important that HCA is transparent about our relationship with those doctors who provide us with clinical guidance on delivering the best possible care to patients and operating our hospitals safely and efficiently. We set out here some of the ways in which we work together and the amount we pay this doctor for such services.
