Mr Matija Krkovic

MD, PhD


Profile

My area of expertise is Complex Orthopaedic Trauma and Knee Surgery.

Apart from managing Complex Orthopaedic Trauma where I mainly treat complex articular and peri-articular injuries of lower limbs (open fractures, bone defects, articular and periarticular injuries) I have a strong interest in the treatment of post-traumatic sequelae such as:

  • Non-union (infected and non-infected)
  • Limb deformity
  • Bone defects
  • Osteomyelitis and Limb lengthening (post-traumatic and cosmetic).

In my elective practice I focus on knee surgery, where I regularly perform:

  • Total knee replacement, including Revisions for aseptic loosening and infections
  • Partial total knee replacements using uncemented implants
  • Knee arthroscopies (for degenerative and traumatic meniscal tears)
  • ACL reconstructions using anatomical tunnel positioning

I am an active member of the Cambridge Bone Infection group where we regularly see patients with bone and joint infections together with plastic surgeons and infectious diseases specialists.
