He has experience treating patients of varying levels of activity, from amateur recreational athletes to international level professional athletes.
Mr Hopper prides himself on providing a personalised care approach which involves keeping up to date with modern treatments and adopting an evidence-based approach.

Additionally, he has experience treating patients with early and late arthritis using a range of methods from non-operative measures like physiotherapy or injection therapy (steroid/hyaluronic acid/platelet-rich plasma (PRP)), to more invasive procedures such as knee realignment surgery (osteotomy) or knee replacement surgery (partial or total).
Mr Hopper graduated from the University of Glasgow in 2009 and undertook his orthopaedic specialist training in the West of Scotland. During his training he completed his thesis on ligament repair around the knee using the Internal Brace, for which he was awarded an MD in sports medicine.

He was also awarded the British Orthopaedic Sports Trauma and Arthroscopy Association (BOSTAA), Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow (RCPSG) and West of Scotland Orthopaedic Research travelling fellowship awards. This enabled him to spend time at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota, Midwest Orthopaedics at Rush in Chicago and the Hamburg University Hospital in Germany to further his skills in multi-ligament knee injuries, cartilage restoration and orthobiologic injection therapy.

Dr Hopper is one of the nicest people we have met in a medical setting. His manner is excellent and had excellent communication with my daughter who had ACL surgery. He always explained everything properly to us and the aftercare from him was brilliant. We are so happy that her surgery was done by someone so professional. Thanks again for everything Dr Hopper! :-)
Incredible experience very helpful, patient and he made the whole process understandable.
From my first appointment with Graeme through to getting my new knee he has been very professional, providing me with all the information to make an informed decision, which after 6 weeks post op seems to be the right one. The process from start to finish was clear, easy to follow and Chris (anaesthetist) helped me make the right decision on how to get relief during the operation and post op rehab. The nurses and other staff were so caring as well. Thanks for a fantastic experience and when my leg gets even stronger I can get back to the daily activities I have missed for over 1yr.
Mr Hopper was fabulous with our daughter from the very first meeting. Being a performance national level gymnast our daughter was worried about not getting back to her sport. Instantly he put her at ease and gave her lots of reassurance. He went out of his way to order all appropriate investigation's, so there was no delay in her treatment to maximise her recovery. She was back in the gym 6 weeks after breaking her tibia and is currently building back up all her skills. With his reassurance she believed it was safe for her to be back doing the sport she loves.
Easy experience getting my knee fixed up after ACL year. Graeme’s manner put me at ease as you can tell he knows his stuff.
I found Dr Hopper very professional and understanding of my problems, he explained my knee issue and went through my options in great detail. I was extremely impressed with his professionalism and would highly recommend him to others. Gordon S
