MBBS (Hons), MS(Orth), FRCSG, FRCS Eng, FRCS (Tr&Orth), MCh (Orth), Trauma Fellow (AO)
I come from Ranchi, a hill station in Bihar state in India. I graduated from Ranchi Medical School in 1980 and completed my post-graduation in Orthopaedics from Prince of Wales Medical, Patna. I worked in a remote Primary Health Centre in the northern part of Bihar for almost two years gaining experience and the confidence to deal with a variety of medical problems including trauma and orthopaedics.
I came to the UK in 1985 and after completing my Pre-Fellowship rotation in the fishing town of Grimsby I became a research registrar in Orthopaedics at Walton hospital in Liverpool. I successively achieved my Masters Degree in Orthopaedics from Liverpool University. My career took me to Dundee as a Plastics registrar and I later completed training in the Manchester Higher Surgical Training programme. I gained valuable experience as a trauma fellow at the University of Tubeigen in Germany. My final years were spent at the Royal Lancaster Infirmary at Lancaster before joining as a Consultant in North Wales at Glan Clwyd Hospital, Rhyl. I established the shoulder and elbow services in the trust.
Apart from my clinical services I am involved in education, research and training as well as the management of orthopaedic services in Wales.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Amit Sinha at Spire include:
I have a son and a daughter. Both are in University studying medicine. I am a family person and know where my priorities lie to maintain a fine balance between work and life. I am an avid reader, particularly history books.
