Mr Sanjeev Sharma
Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon (Hip & Knee)
MBBS, MRCS, MCh Orthopaedics, FRCS
I am Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at Barnsley Hospital, with a private practice at Spire Claremont Hospital. I specialise in primary and revision hip and knee joint replacements, peri-prosthetic fracture management and knee arthroscopy.
I graduated from the University of Delhi in 1996. Following this I started my career as a junior doctor in Mersey deanery before moving to South Yorkshire. During this time, I pursued Masters in Orthopaedic Surgery from the University of Liverpool. Since my appointment as registrar in Sheffield in 2006, I have excelled throughout my training. During my registrar training I was fortunate to be trained by eminent arthroplasty surgeons like Mr John Getty. I won the national Medal (Arthur Edward Burton Memorial prize) for best performance at the FRCS Orth. exam in 2009.
I undertook the prestigious Sir John Charnley arthroplasty fellowship for one year at Wrightington Hospital under the supervision of Prof. Peter Kay and Prof. Martyn Porter. I have also undertaken a Trauma Fellowship with Prof. Chris Moran at Queens Medical Centre in Nottingham which helped me develop an expertise in managing complex fractures around hip and knee joint replacements. I have undertaken additional fellowships in my sub-specialty at Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Hospital, Oswestry; Hospital for Special Surgery, New York; Helios Endo-Klinik, Germany and the MAYO CLINIC, Rochester, Minnesota.
I have presented my research at national and international level and published several articles in peer-reviewed journals.
I was appointed as consultant at Barnsley Hospital in 2012. I am the clinical audit lead and royal college tutor looking after the training needs of junior doctors in my department. I am an assigned educational supervisor (AES) for orthopaedic specialist registrars in the South Yorkshire rotation. I am also an Honorary Senior Lecturer for the University of Sheffield and an examiner for the Medical School. I have a keen interest in training and is a faculty on national training courses.
