Tendon Disorders Clinic

Professor Nicola Maffulli is an Orthoapedic Consultant who specializes in Sports Injuries and conditions of the musculoskeletal system. He has accumulated a wide experience in most subspecialties of Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgery including hand surgery, joint replacement, rheumatoid surgery, adult and paediatric orthopaedics and Sports Trauma. As a Senior Lecturer and Consultant, he developed his subspecialty interests in Sports Trauma, Deformity Correction, and the management of degenerative joint disease in younger individuals, maintaining a keen interest in the management of complex trauma. 

Professor Maffulli’s research and clinical interests have centered around the lower limb.Professor Maffulli is an honorary Professor for Sports and Exercise Medicine at Queen Mary University of London and a visiting Professor in Trauma and Orthopaedics at Keele University. He has continued to develop these skills in the above fields, and developed them further when he took up the position of Professor of Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgery at Keele University the youngest Professor ever appointed in Trauma and Orthopaedics. Professor Maffulli then went on to take up the first competitively appointed Professorship in Sports and Exercise Medicine in the UK at the Centre for Sports and Exercise Medicine at Queen Mary University of London. He now holds an Honorary Professorship at the Centre.

At the beginning of Professor Maffulli's career, his research interests were mainly laboratory based. After researching the molecular biology of the rat thyroglobulin gene, he undertook original studies in muscle physiology at the Third Department of Physiology of the Karolinska Institute, and tried to introduce them into Orthopaedics. At the Institute of Child Health, Professor Maffulli received sound training in anthropometry and in the principles of epidemiology. 
 Professor Maffulli has since set up and completed longitudinal and mixed longitudinal studies, and randomised controlled trials. His interests in bone and soft tissue imaging resulted in a close collaboration with Radiologist colleagues, and he is now able to perform and interpret ultrasound scans of many orthopaedic and traumatic conditions of bone and soft tissues.

Professor Maffulli has also collaborated with Nutrition, Biochemistry, Physiology, Anatomy, Rheumatology, and Statistics Departments, thus strengthening the multi-disciplinary approach to complex problems. At present, he is involved in a series of multi-disciplinary projects, and has set up collaborations with centres outside the United Kingdom. 
In London, Professor Maffulli has been the Chair in Sports and Exercise Medicine and Chief of Service for this newly recognised specialty in the British Isles. The Centre for Sports and Exercise Medicine is the only such Academic Centre in the UK, and there he continued to pursue musculoskeletal research within a University Medical School where there was no academic orthopaedics. Professor Maffulli managed and led both the clinical and academic affairs of the Centre, and integrated them with the service provisions of Orthopaedics and Trauma. From a staff of five, by the London Olympics the Centre for Sports and Exercise Medicine employed a total 11 members of staff on the academic side, and four on the clinical side. 
The centre has always had a high clinical workload, but it maintained a high academic output, and between 2010 and 2012 the centre published more than 200 scientific articles in high impact peer reviewed journals.
Professor Maffulli organised the surgical services at the London Olympics, covering all of the training and competition venues. In addition, he organised the medical supervision of the Judo and Wrestling competitions for London 2012.
 Professor Maffulli has presented and published widely on musculoskeletal and soft tissue disorders, sports injuries and evidenced based management plans. Professor Maffulli is the Editor for a number of peer reviewed journals and has published more than 900 scientific articles. Professor Maffulli is the most widely published orthopaedic surgeon in the British Isles, and integrates clinical practice with scientific research to produce unsurpassed clinical outcomes.
