MR GEZA KORDAS
I have over 20 years experience in orthopaedics with a special interest in treating hip and knee problems. I am fellowship trained in joint replacement surgery and never stopped learning and innovating. I am keen to adopt the latest techniques that are proved to benefit my patients such as minimally invasive surgery or customised implants. I am involved in the development of digital therapeutics solutions to improve our understanding of how patients recover after surgery and to improve their experience and outcomes.
I was born and raised in Budapest, Hungary. I attended Semmelweis Medical School an institution with a rich history going back over 250 years. Following my orthopaedic and trauma training I came to the UK in 2005. I had further specialist training in a wide range of subspecialties and a formal fellowship in hip and knee replacement surgery at the University Hospital of Coventry and Warwickshire. I was first appointed as a consultant in the UK in 2009.
I started working for Oxford University Hospitals in 2013 as a Consultant Orthopaedic and Trauma Surgeon. Since January 2019 I only work in the private sector, but also see NHS patients there.
I specialise in hip and knee replacement surgery, joint preservation and sports injuries of the knee.
In my clinical work I perform hip replacements including cemented and uncemented techniques using minimally invasive techniques.
In the knee I aim to preserve the joint and offer re-alignment surgery instead of replacement where possible. I use both total and partial knee replacements including patello-femoral implants depending on the areas affected by arthritis. From 2021 I am offering custom made knee replacements for my private patients.
Knee arthroscopy (keyhole operation) is a major part of my work including operations for meniscal tears, cartilage defects and instability.
I am leading the implementation of a rapid recovery and day surgery pathway for joint replacement patients at the Ramsay Treatment Centre. This brings several benefits for our patients with better pain management, quicker mobilisation and sleeping in their own bed on the day of surgery!
I have a special interest in the use of digital technology for precision, personalised medicine.
I hold a Ph.D degree in cartilage research and I am the author of several papers published internationally on this subject as well as on aspects of hip surgery.
