    Prof Gordon MacKay

    Orthopaedic Consultant

    Gordon MacKay qualified from Glasgow University in 1987. As a newly qualified doctor, Gordon took the unusual route of pursuing a career in professional football and enjoyed a brief spell as a reserve player for Rangers Football Club. It was during his playing career that he experienced at first hand the insecurity of injury and the casual attitude to sports medicine at that time.

    Gordon returned to medicine a year later and spent the next decade undertaking extensive training and research in orthopaedic surgery and sports medicine. He completed a Post Graduate Diploma in Sports and Exercise Medicine at London University followed by international training and Sports Surgery fellowships at some of the world’s leading sports surgery clinics, including Sydney, Adelaide and Sweden. It was during his international surgical fellowships that Gordon embraced the potential of sports medicine with emphasis on early detection of injuries and fast track rehabilitation, not only for professional sports people but for the active population too.

    On his return to Scotland, Gordon was appointed Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at Stirling Royal Infirmary. His research interests allowed him to complete a MD in the Mechanism and Prevention of Injuries in Sports at Glasgow University, strengthening his resolve to work full time on sports injuries.

    Gordon continued to draw upon his experience in sports surgery before setting up independently and is now a full time sports surgeon in the private sector. He has now been Scotland’s only full time sports surgeon for over 10 years. He continues to lead the way in sports surgery care. His main interests include knee (ACL repair), shoulder (Instability) and ankle surgery (Instability and Achilles rupture).

    He has experience in treating a variety of athletes from the Institute of Sport, including Olympians and Commonwealth athletes, as well as international rugby players and professional footballers. In 2009 he was appointed Honorary Professor in the School of Sport at Stirling University. Current research is in collaboration with top North American and European centres focusing on ligament repair and accelerated recovery. He is the inventor of the internal brace.
