Mr Nadim Aslam
Consultant Orthopaedic Knee, Sports Medicine and Hip Specialist Surgeon
BMSc, MBChB, FRCS(Eng), FRCS(Orth), MFSEM(UK)
I am a Senior Consultant Knee, Sports Injury and Hip Specialist currently offering virtual consultations. I have over 13 years’ worth of extensive experience in all aspects of knee and hip surgery which has allowed me to learn from challenging cases and improve my techniques to improve patient outcomes. I have been trained extensively at the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre Oxford, which is a world-class centre of excellence. I have carried out advanced fellowship training in knee arthroscopy and anterior cruciate reconstruction.
My main interests include; knee and hip replacement surgery using the latest minimally invasive techniques including day case hip replacements (for patients meeting certain criteria) in addition to sports injuries of the knee and hip including meniscal and anterior cruciate injuries. I have a committed patient-centred approach leading to amongst the best outcomes in the country in knee and hip surgery. I am currently the orthopaedic surgeon to Worcester Wolves Basketball and Severn Stars Netball teams, treating both professional and amateur athletes. I am also an Honorary Senior Lecturer at the University of Worcester in Sports and Exercise Science.
I have a busy practice based on patient outcomes and recommendations and perform amongst the most joint replacements the region (over 350 compared to national average of 133 (National Joint Registry Surgeon Data surgeonprofile.njrcentre.org.uk). Nowadays, younger patients fulfill the criteria for joint replacement; some related to previous sports injuries, it is essential to continue to improve techniques. I have visited leading centres in the USA including the Joint Replacement Institute in Los Angeles and the Rush Institute in Chicago to develop my skills.
I have extensive experience in clinical governance and in improving patient outcomes. I have extensive experience in the Oxford Minimally Invasive Unicompartmental Knee having worked closely with the designers; I regularly attend workshops and teach on courses. I am also involved in the development of minimally invasive hip day case surgery.
I undertook advanced fellowship knee and hip training in Oxford and Toronto to gain specific training in advanced techniques in knee, hip and sports injuries. I believe in minimally invasive bone conserving surgery (Oxford Minimally Invasive Unicompartmental Knee Replacement) with my latest research data showing results which are comparable with the best in the country.
Research interests: Sports injuries of the knee, sports medicine, use of newer bearing surfaces in hip and knee replacement, bone conservation surgery, Oxford unicompartmental replacement, outcome measures hip and knee replacement.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Nadim Aslam at Spire include:
Consultant Knee, Sports Injury and Hip Specialist, Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust
I was born in Oxford and moved to Worcestershire to take up my consultant position. I have two young children. While my family occupies the majority of my time, I have a wide variety of interests including most sports (particularly football, cricket and rugby), DIY, literature and music.
I am involved in various educational courses for surgical trainees. I believe surgeons have a duty to provide the highest quality of care at all times.
