Mr Issaq Ahmed
Consultant Orthopaedic and Trauma Surgeon
BEng (Hons), FRCS(Ed), MFST(Ed)
I am a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon based at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh where I offer specialist orthopaedic care for patients presenting with hip and knee pain. My expertise relates to primary hip and knee replacement surgery, revision (re-do) surgery and robotic assisted surgery. I am the lead orthopaedic surgeon for enhanced recovery after joint replacement surgery (ERAS).
I completed my orthopaedic training in Edinburgh before undertaking several subspecialist training fellowships in the North East of England and Sydney where I developed a specialist interest in robotic assisted joint replacement surgery and sports injuries of the knee.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Issaq Ahmed at Spire include:
British Orthopaedic Association (BOA)
British Association of Surgery of the Knee (BASK)
Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh (RCSEd)
I live in Edinburgh with my wife Pamela. My interests outside of work include home restorations, training for endurance events and mountain biking.
