Background Information 
Professional profile:

Mr Tandon qualified from Queens University Belfast Medical School in 1988. After a few years of postgraduate orthopaedic training in Belfast he did a pre-registrar trauma fellowship in Stoke on Trent Hospital Staffordshire. He trained in orthopaedic surgery on the Robert Jones and Angus Hunt Hospital Oswestry rotation from 1993 to 1999 and during the concluding period of this rotation he furthered his interest in surgery relating to sports injuries.

On completing this rotation Mr Tandon travelled to Australia, spending a year in specialist fellowship training at the Wakefield Orthopaedic and Sports Injury Clinic in Adelaide, where he focused on minimally invasive knee surgery, sport injuries and joint replacement surgery. He stayed in Melbourne for a short period afterwards, working with an eminent knee surgeon before returning to the United Kingdom where he was appointed to a consultant post at Wolverhampton before moving to the University Hospitals of Leicester in August 2002. 

Mr Tandon’s particular interests lie with soft tissue injuries relating to sports injuries of the knee and the treatment of these injuries using minimally invasive surgery. He regularly sees both amateur and professional sports people with knee problems. 

In addition to providing medical support to many small sports clubs, Mr Tandon looks after and provides orthopaedic surgical management for:

  • Leicester Tigers Team and Academy
  • Leicester City FC Team and Academy
  • Leicestershire County Cricket
  • Leicester Riders

Mr Tandon also has a special interest in cartilage implantation, meniscal transplantation and the treatment of younger patients with degenerative knee problems. He manages the latter with modern conservative treatments and surgical treatments.Although he performs conventional total knee replacement surgery he has an interest in uni-compartmental (partial) knee replacement and other modern techniques of osteotomies for the treatment of degenerative changes of the knee in younger people.

He treats difficult patellar disorders, including pain and instability issues and runs special clinics for these problems in association with a physiotherapist, receiving referrals from across the East Midlands.  In conjunction with a paediatric orthopaedic surgeon, Mr Tandon also runs a clinic for children and adolescents with sports injuries and patellar problems.

Mr Tandon is also involved in teaching both medical students and senior trainee orthopaedic surgeons at the University Hospitals of Leicester.
