Professor Brian M Devitt

Brian Devitt is an internationally trained orthopaedic surgeon with subspecialty expertise in knee surgery. He has a particular interest in sporting injuries including anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction, meniscal repair, cartilage restoration procedures, multi-ligamentous knee reconstruction and hamstring repair. In addition, he cares for patients with degenerative conditions, such as knee arthritis, and performs partial and total knee replacements as well as osteotomies.

Brian completed his medical school training at University College Dublin, Ireland, and carried out his specialist training in Trauma & Orthopaedics at the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland. He also achieved a Masters in Sports and Exercise Medicine. Brian chose to pursue a career in academic orthopaedic sports surgery, and carried out three years of fellowship training. The first year was a research fellowship at the Steadman Philippon Research Institute. He then carried out a clinical fellowship at the University of Toronto in sports surgery. Finally, he completed two clinical fellowships in Melbourne; the first was a knee reconstruction fellowship at OrthoSport Victoria (OSV) and the second a fellowship at Hip Arthroscopy Australia. Following his fellowship, Brian worked as a consultant orthopaedic surgeon at OSV and Epworth Healthcare.

Brian has a keen interest in research and is Full Professor and Chair of Orthopaedics and Surgical Biomechanics at Dublin City University. He has extensive research experience with a specific focus on clinical outcomes studies and biomechanical studies. He has published widely and speaks frequently at national and international meetings.

Mihai Vioreanu

Mr. Mihai Vioreanu is an Irish trained Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon with expertise in knee and hip surgery obtained in Canada and Australia.
After graduating with honors from the University of Medicine and Pharmacy ‘Victor Babes’ Timisoara, Romania Mihai moved to Dublin where he completed his Specialty Training in Orthopaedic Surgery in RCSI.
He pursued further sub-specialized training in Primary and Revision Hip and Knee Replacement at the world-renowned Arthroplasty Centre in Vancouver, Canada. He then travelled to Sydney, Australia during 2013 and 2014 to perform sports knee surgery (i.e. ACL reconstruction, tibial osteotomies, patello-femoral reconstruction) under the supervision and guidance of Dr. Justin Roe and Prof. Leo Pinczewski. During this time he was awarded the ESSKA–APKASS Travelling Fellowship facilitating him to visit some of the best centers in Sports Surgery in Asia-Pacific (China, Hong-Kong, New-Zealand, Australia and Japan).
Along with developing his orthopaedic surgical career Mihai also played international rugby and represented Romania at two Rugby World Cups, 1999 in Ireland and 2003 in Australia.
Mr. Vioreanu is highly involved in clinical research. He attended over 40 international courses and meetings and has published a number of high quality clinical studies, book chapters and surgical techniques. A keen teacher, he was the first Orthopaedic Lecturer in RCSI where he designed and delivered a musculoskeletal program for medical students.

Mr. Vioreanu recently joined Sports Surgery Clinic, bringing the latest innovations and experience in knee and hip surgery from North America and Australia.
