clinical editing, online publishing, patient advocacy, KNEEguru Team Member
Dr Sheila Strover is the founder and Clinical Editor of the KNEEguru website.
Her medical studies were completed at the University of the Witwatersrand in South Africa - BSc(Hons) (1968) and MBBCh (1974). She emigrated to the United Kingdom in 1983 and worked as an anaesthetist (anaesthesiologist) until 1989 when she left practice to work in a managerial position at the Droitwich Knee Clinic, which she co-founded with her knee surgeon ex-husband, Angus Strover. There she was involved with the establishment of The Knee Foundation (an academic trust) and helped to design the content of their academic courses, as well as designing and bringing to production a 3-dimensional arthroscopic training model of the knee. A sabbatical in at Warwick University 1973-1974 earned her an MBA (1994), and at this stage she also established the KNEEguru website and started to build content. Dr Strover resigned from the Clinic in 2002, and has concentrated her energies on creating within the KNEEguru website a successful venue for the collaboration of both patients and practitioners and industry in the knee field.
