Mr Shepard is an established and experienced knee and hip surgeon. He gained orthopaedic training in the UK, USA and Australia before settling back home in the NW of England. He provides a high quality, individualised and responsive service to all of his patients from elite athletes to the elderly.
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 surgeons 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 of 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 taking up this post. He has provided orthopaedic surgical services to professional football clubs in the northwest of England.
Mr Shepard was a keen sportsman and has played rugby, football, squash and badminton. He represented his University at sailing and his medical school at football. Although injuries have stopped his involvement in contact sports he still enjoys racquet sports. He is married with two children and they are all regular attenders at Anfield
