Chan Jeer is a leading consultant trauma and orthopaedic surgeon specialising in knee surgery and sports medicine in Kent.
Chan’s specialists’ interests are a reflection of his specialist fellowship training and are almost exclusively related to surgery of the knee and sports medicine.
His personal philosophies are of integrity and the pursuit of clinical excellence on all occasions and providing effective communication.
Personal interests are centred on his young family, motorsports and keeping fit.
Chan Jeer was born in the UK and qualified from King’s College Hospital School and Medicine and Dentistry, London in 1993. After a series of Professorial House Jobs in Medicine and Surgery, he moved on to working as a Casualty SHO at King’s College Hospital before he became an anatomy demonstrator at Guy’s Hospital in London.
Chan’s basic surgical training was on the renowned Canterbury rotation in Kent. He obtained Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons (England) in 1997. Higher surgical training in Trauma and Orthopaedics was done in the South East Thames rotation, where he obtained the FRCS (Tr & Orth) in 2002.
Sub-specialist Fellowship training was obtained in Australia and Ireland. In Australia Chan trained at the prestigious Sportsmed Institute of Arthroplasty and Sports Medicine with Greg Keene, Roger Oakeshott, Tony Spriggins and Roger Paterson.
This Fellowship experience included Hip (Cemented, Uncemented and Resurfacing) and Knee (Total and Unicompartmental) Arthroplasty, including the use of minimally invasive surgery, and computer navigated surgery. Arthroscopy of the Hip, Knee, and Ankle was a significant component of the Fellowship, and Sports Surgery, as was Anterior Cruciate Ligament reconstruction and Cartilage transplant surgery.
The Dublin, Ireland Fellowship with Michael Stephens provided experience in Adult and Paediatric Foot and Ankle surgery. This includes Ankle Arthroplasty, Arthroscopy and all aspects of Forefoot and Hindfoot surgery.

This research fellowship had an equal division between clinical and research commitments. The supervising surgeons have a particular interest in arthroscopy, anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstructive surgery, and arthroplasty.
The clinic is a unique facility which is dedicated to sports medicine and surgery and the allied specialities of physiotherapy and podiatry. Day-case surgery accounts for 50% of the practice, the remainder performed from a 50 bed hospital. There are 4 operating theatres and 9 surgeons in the group, performing 6000 procedures a year.
My weekly timetable consisted of an elective outpatient clinic with each supervisor and 2-3 full-day supervised operating sessions. Outpatient sessions allowed me to see both new and follow-up patients; all patients then being reviewed by the supervising surgeon. There was sufficient time to discuss management plans and strategies and receive demonstration of examination skills.
Given that this was a private practice the majority of operating sessions involved performing the duties of an assistant. However, as I progressed, I was afforded the opportunity of performing the major part of many procedures and ran a parallel supervised list.
With four supervisors I was able to perform ACL reconstruction using four techniques, with both hamstrings and bone-patellar tendon-bone autograft.
Experience with supervisors
Fellowship trained Orthopaedic Surgeon (AE Gross, Toronto), and ex-ABC visiting Fellow: Knee arthroscopy, ACL reconstruction, Knee and Hip arthroplasty (primary and revision), including the development of the ASR Hip resurfacing prosthesis, and minimally invasive hip surgery.
Fellowship trained Orthopaedic Surgeon (RW Jackson, Dallas), ex-president of the Australian Knee Society. Knee arthroscopy, ACL reconstruction, and Knee arthroplasty (primary and revision), including the use of computer navigation.
Fellowship trained Orthopaedic Surgeon (Sydney Sports Clinic), founder member of the Australian Sports Society. Knee arthroscopy, ACL reconstruction, and Knee arthroplasty (primary and revision), medial patellofemoral reconstruction, medial spacers, Foot and Ankle surgery including arthroscopy.
Anthony J Spriggins:
Fellowship trained Orthopaedic Surgeon (AE Gross, Toronto). Knee arthroscopy, ACL reconstruction, Knee and Hip arthroplasty (primary and revision), including the use of computer navigation in these areas, chondrocyte grafting.

Audit and Teaching
Audit was undertaken on a 3 monthly basis. This was in the form of morbidity and mortality data presentation and discussion. The Fellow was part responsible for these meetings and the presentation of a topic for discussion and informative case study with literature review. I audited and presented: Infection post knee arthroscopy and Infections post hip arthroplasty. I undertook teaching sessions for physiotherapists, medical students and nursing staff. I represented Dr Spriggins at an international knee symposium and gave two podium presentations.
The Fellowship allowed ample time for conducting research in a dedicated office with adequate computer, secretarial and technological support. There was access to a well-stocked library, and support from medical statisticians and illustrators. There was a weekly research meeting with the supervisors and a monthly meeting as an entire group.
I was able to have research accepted for publication and presentation, and have submitted a number of further papers.
I accompanied the Clinics’ Sports Physicians to major sporting events (Australian Rules Football, Basketball, Netball, Hockey, and International Soccer), and gained an insight into the touch-line management of sporting injuries.
A component of the Fellowship involved the preparation of formal reports of claimants with personal injury, supplementing the 4 years of reporting that had already been undertaken by myself as a Registrar in Trauma and Orthopaedics

This Fellowship covers all aspects of Foot and Ankle surgery in the Adult and Paediatric patient. There is an equal division between outpatient clinics and theatre commitments, and time for research. Adult work includes Foot and Ankle Arthroplasty, Osteotomy, Fusion and Arthroscopy. Paediatric work includes correction of complex foot deformities.
Mr Stephens is president of the Irish Orthopaedic Association and has strong links with the British Orthopaedic Foot Surgery Society, and European Foot and Ankle Society, and is an editor on a number of major peer reviewed Journals.
