Training & Background
|FBBS FRCP DPhil
|Year first qualified:
Dr Kluzek initially qualified in medicine from the Medical University of Warsaw, in 2006. Further study in England followed, primarily in Oxford, where he undertook an MSc and a PhD, in joint injuries and early osteoarthritis.
Developing the field of medicine has always been important to Dr Kluzek, he served as an Academic Clinical Lecturer and Clinician Scientist at Oxford University. His skills have also seen him support athletes at the highest level.
This includes time as Medical Officer for the British Men’s Hockey team and similar positions with Olympic, or Paralympic teams. He holds clinics for professional athletes.
Ensuring the same level of care is available to those who enjoy activity at all levels is important to Dr Kluzek. As a scientist as well as a doctor, he appreciates the physical and psychological benefits exercise can bring to all of us.
Dr Kluzek’s areas of expertise include knee, ankle and shoulder injuries, early osteoarthritis, tendinopathies and bone stress fractures. He also reviews patients with metabolic problems, underperformance and concussion.
Above all, he does so in a way which puts each patient at the centre of analysis and treatment decisions, to see their enjoyment of movement restored.
Research & Teaching
Dr Kluzek’s research has included identifying pathways for early joint degeneration, poor cardiovascular health, and cognitive decline. The focus is often on how injuries and illnesses affect the active population and the consequences they bring.
His research has provided new insights into osteoarthritis, from the effect of the early environment to treatments for established disease. He has contributed to clinical trials defining the benefit of new, therapeutic interventions in musculoskeletal conditions.
