Mr Krisztian Deierl
Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon
I am a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon who specialises in surgery for traumatic injuries of the arms, legs, hands and feet. I have performed thousands of trauma operations with excellent outcomes. I also teach and supervise trainee surgeons in the performance of many more.
I qualified from Semmelweis University in Budapest, Hungary in 2002 and completed my orthopaedic specialist training there in 2010. I then undertook two nationally-renowned fellowships in Hungary in trauma surgery at the National Institute for Traumatology and the National Institute for Accident and Emergency, where I honed my skills in treating a huge variety of traumatic injuries. After moving to England, I became a consultant at West Hertfordshire Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust (Watford General and St Alban's City Hospitals) in 2014 and I have been the lead for trauma service there since 2015.
I am an expert in the assessment and treatment (including both operative and conservative) of all types of traumatic injuries, ranging from acute soft tissue injuries and complex fractures to chronically non-united or malunited fractures. This includes both upper and lower limb conditions.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Krisztian Deierl at Spire include:
COVID-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service at Spire Bushey Hospital.

Outside of work, other than my wife and two children, my passion is judo. Judo instilled in me the valuable life lessons of discipline, teamwork and respect. As a young man, I was a member of the Hungarian national team and regularly participated in international championships.
As a trainee doctor in Hungary, after my own competitive career had ended, I combined my love for judo and for training others by taking on a part-time job as a judo coach. Two of my trainees participated in the Olympic games in Beijing in 2008, and in London in 2012. Another of my trainees, Barna Bor, came seventh at the London Games and qualified for the Rio Games as well.
I now regularly act as an international referee for the European and World Championships at the highest level. I also regularly attend UK judo events as a volunteer referee and I am a member of the British Judo Association.
