Please join me in welcoming Christopher Servant to the Arthroscopy editorial team as our newest Associate Editor. Mr. Servant is replacing Jüri Kartus, who has retired after many years of faithful service to the Journal.
Mr. Servant received his medical training at St. Bartholomew’s Hospital Medical School (University of London) and his Senior House Officer (first 2-years postgrad) training in surgery at the Royal London Hospital. From there to Registrar training in orthopaedics at the Wessex Specialty Registrar (Resident) training program (Bath, Swindon & Basingstoke). Chris went to Australia for his Fellowship in sports knee and arthroplasty training, specializing in complex knee and shoulder surgery at the North Sydney Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine Centre, Australia.
Since 2004, Chris has been a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon in Ipswich, England, with specialist interests in soft-tissue knee surgery, knee replacement, and shoulder injuries. Currently his practice is “soft-tissue” knee surgery (as well as osteotomy) and, as is common for most orthopaedic surgeons in the United Kingdom, general trauma.
For 8 years, Chris developed his interest in sports injuries during his time as Medical Officer for Bath Rugby Club. He is an independent representative of the Royal College of Surgeons of England on Orthopaedic Consultant appointment committees. At the University of Cambridge, Chris also holds the positions of Senior Clinical Tutor and Associate Fellow of the Health Education Authority. As well as being on the Editorial Board of Arthroscopy, he is on the Board of the Bone & Joint Journal.
Chris is married to a Consultant Emergency Physician and they have a daughter, a son, and a dog. In his younger days, Chris competed in athletics, including rugby, and cricket. His outside interests still include many sports, including running (road and cross-country), cycling, triathlon, rugby coaching, and snowboarding.
