Mr Gordon Shepard was appointed as a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon in 2001 following training in Leicester, Liverpool and Manchester as well as travelling to visit and work with world-renowned surgeons in Sports and Arthroplasty Surgery in Boston, Denver and Adelaide. After 16 years at the Royal Bolton Hospital, he left to pursue non-emergency surgery for the NHS and privately within the private sector.
He has always had an interest in regenerative and reconstructive techniques and has practised what is now becoming known as biological surgery since he was appointed to his consultant post and so has many years experience of these techniques.
Mr Shepard was appointed as one of the sports orthopaedics consultants to the Commonwealth Games in Manchester in 2002 although a call-up to serve as a surgeon in the Army prevented him from taking up this post. He has provided orthopaedic surgical services to professional football clubs in the northwest of England.
