Mr Alexander Dodds BSc (Hons), MBBCh, MSc, MD (Res) FRCS (Tr and Orth) is an experienced Consultant Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgeon specialising in Knee and Hip surgery. He completed his specialist training in London in 2013, gaining extensive trauma experience working in St Mary’s, one of London’s Major Trauma Centres. His advanced training included a UK fellowship where he was involved in knee operations on premiership football and rugby players, and a year in Australia focused on hip and knee primary and revision surgery, soft knee tissue surgery including arthroscopy, anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction and patello-femoral surgery. Alex has worked as the sports doctor to North Wales Rugby providing pitch side care and managing high impact sports injuries.
Alex is a world expert on the anterolateral structures of the knee and his work is regularly referenced at international conferences. In 2018 he was awarded a Doctorate of Medicine Degree (MD Res) from Imperial College on ‘The anterolateral structures of the knee and the pivot shift’. This is often injured at the same time as the ACL and such detailed anatomical knowledge of the joint helps Alex to identify the best possible surgery to aid recovery.
In 2016 Alex was voted on to the national council British Association of Surgeons of the Knee (BASK). He is orthopaedic infection governance lead at Gloucestershire Hospitals. Alex is committed to the training of future Orthopaedic surgeons and is a Severn Deanery Educational supervisor and has written and published a textbook on orthopaedic training.

He is a Medco accredited orthopeadic expert witness offering advice on all aspects of orthopeadic trauma injuries, as a result of personal injury including road traffic accidents. He regularly sees clients that have musculoskeletal problems, including fractures of upper and lower limbs in adults and children, soft tissue injuries including whip lash injury and back pain, work-related injuries and repetitive strain injuries.
