Dr. Knoll Zsolt Ph. D.
I was born in Budapest, in June, 1962.
I graduated as a medical doctor from Semmelweis University Medical School. I acquired my specialists' qualification in orthopedics at the Department of Sports Surgery of the National Institute of Sports Medicine.
During this period, I took part in two Winter Olympic Games as the official doctor of the Hungarian delegation. At the same time, I also worked as the specialist doctor of the National Ski Team. Having achieved my specialist qualification, I found employment at the Department of Orthopedics and Trauma Surgery of the Szent János Hospital, in Budapest. Here I gained extensive experience in orthopedics and in addition to this I passed the specialists' examination in trauma surgery.
As a specialist in sports medicine, I was the official doctor of the Újpest FC Football Team and of the National Fencing Team. At present, I am flourishing as the official doctor of MIZO Pécs women's basketball team and of the men's adult National Football Team.
I am employed as an assistant professor at the National Institute of Traumatology and Emergency Medicine. In addition to this, I am busy with my private practice as well.
I defended my PhD doctoral thesis in 2003. Naturally, I am continuing my scientific investigations as well. I analyze the walking biomechanics (kinematics) of knee joint disorders. As the results of these scientific investigations are internationally acknowledged, I travel often and give lectures, similarly to a large number of my colleagues. I regularly write articles for popular periodicals (e.g. Men's Fitness, Bikemag, and CKM) and I am frequently asked to give interviews (TV2, RTL, Telesport, and Radio Juventus). I have been a fanatic lover of mountain biking for several years, so I have always considered the organization of medical assistance for the Hungarian Marathon mountain bike races to be a great challenge.
