Mr Ball has a special interest in sports knee injuries, complex ligament reconstruction and re-alignment surgery. For several years Mr Ball has been involved in the management of professional athletes from many different sports including Premiership Football and Rugby, International Cricket, Netball, Hockey, Lacrosse, Ballet, Judo, Cycling, and Olympic Sports. The skills acquired managing top level athletes benefit the wider population and sports people of all levels.

 

Mr Ball is passionate about delivering the highest possible standard of patient care. He is actively involved in research and innovation. He has recently been involved in research on the medial collateral ligament and in particular its importance in ACL injuries.

 

Mr Ball is an extremely keen sportsman and has played many different sports. He represented England Independent Schools Football at both U16 and U19 level before going to Cambridge University where he achieved 4 consecutive Football Blues’ and captained the University Football Club.

A huge thank you to you and the rest of the team at the Fortius Surgical centre for making me feel so at ease yesterday. As far as surgery and ops go, it was a relatively stress free process and dare I say it, somewhat enjoyable.

Sometimes the meniscus can be repaired using small sutures (stitches)
Are you one of the many people in the UK suffering in silence with knee pain? Well you're not alone, over 70,000 knee replacements are carried out in England and Wales each year, a procedure which involves replacing the knee joint with an artificial one.
