  Professor Paul Y F Lee  - experience 

Besides his surgical expertise, Prof Lee is also a qualified Member of the Faculty of Sports and Exercise Medicine. He completed his M.Sc in Sports and Exercise Medicine with a thesis on “Actovegin", and was able to continue his research to a PhD level. 


Through his PhD dissertation, 'the role of injection therapy in muscle injuries’, Prof Lee was able to establish Actovegin injection therapy with a sound scientific base. He has successfully treated UK Premiership footballers for muscle injuries which significantly reduced their time for recovery and return to play. His experience and results with actovegin injection therapy are widely published in the medical literature. Due to the extensive understanding and research performed by Prof Lee, his Actovegin therapy protocol can significantly reduce the number of days for players to ‘return to play’ - up to 30% after muscle injuries. Currently Mr Lee is researching the role of Actovegin in the treatment of other types of sports injuries and arthritis.
