Mr Amit Kumar

Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon

BSc (Hons), MBBS, FRCS Ed (Tr&Orth)


Specialises in

  • Hip and knee surgery
  • Knee arthroscopy
  • Joint injections
  • Bone and soft tissue tumours and sarcoma
  • Skeletal metastatic disease

I specialise in hip and knee surgery namely managing arthritic conditions and perform hip and knee replacements along with knee arthroscopy for meniscal and cartilage conditions. I also perform joint injections including steroid, platelet rich plasma and viscosupplementation (ostenil).

My sub-specialty interests include musculoskeletal tumour surgery namely soft tissue lumps/swellings and metastatic bone disease. I have set up a rapid access lumps clinic at Spire Manchester, providing a one stop facility of investigation of a lump anywhere on the body.

I completed my medical degree at the Royal Free and University College London Medical School in 2003 and undertook my early surgical training in the North West. My specialist postgraduate training in trauma and orthopaedics was in the East Midlands (South) T&O rotation. I subsequently completed fellowships in lower limb arthroplasty and sarcoma in Leicester, Nottingham and Wrightington hospitals.

During the consultation I always ensure the patient is at the centre of the decision making process, answering any questions they may have. I regularly collect outcome data and my practice is evidence based including regular positive reviews from patients.
