Ali Bajwa is a specialist Orthopaedic surgeon who exclusively performs hip and knee surgery with particular interest in Sports Injury and Arthroscopy (key-hole surgery).  This includes major knee ligament reconstructions such as Anterior and Posterior Cruciate Ligaments (ACL and PCL), Hip arthroscopy, Femeroacetabular impingement (FAI), joint preservation, cartilage regeneration and dealing with tendon degeneration and tears. He undertakes modern Joint replacement surgery of Hip and Knee in patients with advanced arthritis where joint preservation is not possible. He offers Total and Partial replacement of the joints including computer navigation and shape-matched surgery.

The ethos of his practice is to provide high quality, patient-centred care while tailoring the treatment to each individual patient, based on the best available evidence, which may include surgical or non-operative treatment.

Ali Bajwa completed his Basic Surgical and Specialist Training in Orthopaedic and Trauma surgery in the Newcastle-upon-Tyne Deanery where he was awarded the Kreibich Prize.

The second Fellowship was at an Orthopaedic centre in Adelaide, Australia, which is world-renowned for treatment of Knee and Hip Arthroscopy, Sports Injury and Joint replacement. On his return he took up a NHS Consultant Post at the James Cook University Hospital, Teesside, before moving in to full-time independant practice joining The Richard Villar Practice.
