Mark jackson

Knee replacement surgery, all aspects of arthroscopic knee surgery, sports injuries and ligament reconstruction.
Mark studied medicine in the UK at King’s College London, graduating in 1997. He then embarked on Basic Surgical Training followed by Higher Surgical Training in Trauma and Orthopaedics on the South East London programme.

On gaining the FRCS (Tr&Orth) in 2007 and successful completion of training with addition onto the Specialist Register, further specialist knowledge and experience was gained on 2 fellowships. The first of which was a year in Ireland under supervision of Mr Ray Moran gaining extensive exposure to the management of sports knee injuries and anterior cruciate ligament surgery. The subsequent year was spent in The Mater Hospital, Sydney, Australia in a busy hip and knee joint replacement facility.

On completion of this post in 2009 he returned to set up a practice based in The Sports Surgery Clinic, Dublin, to concentrate solely on the management of knee conditions and injuries.

Current Research
Within the Sports Surgery Clinic, I am involved in ongoing research designed to maximise the outcomes of our ACL patients. As an initial instigator to develop this programme, I try to encourage all my patients to be part of this process so that we can strive to improve further our return to sport rates and maximise performance on return with a reduced risk of further injury. We are frequently able to present and publish the results of these studies at national and international meetings.
