I have been a practising Orthopaedic surgeon since 1982 and have held a substantive consultant post in the NHS since 2002. I retired from the NHS in 2015 to work full time in Private Practice.
I am a general orthopaedic surgeon with a special interest in management of acute low back pain and sciatica, hip and knee replacement surgery and arthroscopic surgery of the knee.
The number of arthroscopies of the knee performed every year is a minimum of a 100 and at least 35 hip and knee replacements every year.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Dush Thakkar at Spire include:
Facet joint injections, lumbar spine and sacro-coccygeal joint injection.
