Mr Farokh Wadia

Consultant Paediatric Orthopaedic Surgeon

MBBS, MS Orth, MRCS Ed, FRCS Trauma & Orth

"With its amazing staff, friendly atmosphere and great theatre and outpatient facilities; for my private practice, I could not think of any better option than working at Spire Southampton Hospital."

Specialises in

I have been a Paediatric Orthopaedic Consultant for 10 years now. I have worked as a consultant in two countries, two different healthcare settings (public and private) and amassed a wide based experience in managing complex conditions. My fellowship at Royal Manchester Children's Hospital gave me a broad based exposure to the whole spectrum of paediatric orthopaedic conditions whereas my fellowship at Great Ormond Street Hospital in London gave me a unique exposure to paediatric hand surgery.

I have been privileged to have a wide exposure to paediatric orthopaedics from a very early stage of my medical career. I have therefore performed a wide spectrum of paediatric orthopaedic surgeries, but my special interest lies in paediatric upper limb and knee surgeries.

Paediatric orthopaedics is a unique sub specialty of orthopaedics. It encompasses looking after every body part of upper and lower limb in a child rather than focusing on one joint. I have performed over 2,000 surgeries on children since becoming a consultant.

I have a keen interest in research and supervise medical student research projects from Southampton University every year.

I have been an invited faculty for a number of courses and conferences while in India and in the UK. I have been part of the organising committee for the BSCOS annual conference in 2023.
