Por qué es un doctor de primer nivel/Professional statement/Perché è un dottore di prim’ordine

Dr Duncan Roberston is a highly accomplished sports medicine specialist based in Preston, who specialises in the diagnosis and treatment of sports injuries, arthritis, tendinopathy, ultrasound guided procedures and joint pain. In addition to sports injuries, he is an expert in treating all types of musculoskeletal injuries particularly joint-related issues such as ankle pain, knee pain and shoulder injuries.

He treats patients at Fylde Sports Injury Clinic, a specialist centre for sports medicine, which he leads as a medical director. A multifaceted professional, he combines his work at the clinic with his other roles which include musculoskeletal and sports injuries physician for Bupa, Fleetwood Town Football Club doctor, women's development squads physician for The Football Association and Team GB SEM physician for UK Athletics. The latter role resulted in his participation at the most recent Olympic Games, Tokyo 2021.

He previously served 21 years as military medical officer/GP for HM Forces before turning his focus to sports medicine in 2011. He has worked as a club doctor for several elite football clubs, namely Chelsea FC, Blackburn Rovers, Derby County and Aston Villa.

Dr Robertson graduated from Edinburgh University Medical School and went on to achieve a diploma in child health and become a member of the Royal College of General Practitioners. After deciding to become a sports medicine specialist, he gained a master's degree in sports medicine from Bath University and qualified as a musculoskeletal sonographer. He completed fellowship training (FFSEMUK) at The Faculty of Sport and Exercise Medicine in 2007, having achieved membership (MFSEM Ire) with the Irish equivalent via the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland.

Favouring a conservative approach, Dr Robertson works closely with his experienced team of physiotherapists, local orthopaedic surgeons and radiologists to guarantee patients a clear pathway from diagnosis to recovery.
