Mr Arman Memarzadeh
Consultant Orthopaedic Knee Surgeon
MBBS, FRCS (Tr and Orth), PGCME
"The facilities at Spire Cambridge Lea Hospital are excellent; they enable me to provide the best quality of care for all my patients. The staff are kind and supportive and committed to caring."
I am a specialist knee surgeon at Cambridge University Hospitals (Addenbrooke’s). My work comprises the full spectrum of knee surgery, from sports injuries, to realignment, to joint replacement. I am involved in the management of severe trauma knee injuries which may require the reconstruction of fractures to multiple ligaments around the knee.
My particular area of interest, as well as fellowship training, is in the area of personalised knee replacement. This is the tailoring of the knee replacement implant to the patient’s anatomy and alignment.
I qualified in 2009, and have spent my training years in centres of excellence in the UK and abroad. I completed my surgical training on the Cambridge rotation, in the East of England. I completed fellowship training at the Fortius Clinic in London, learning to treat knee injuries in elite athletes. This is one of two centres in the UK that has FIFA accreditation. As a result, I have direct experience of treating high level sportsmen and women in a variety of sports, including rugby, football, skiing, Judo and more. I am one of a handful of surgeons in the East of England region who performs multiple ligament reconstructions.
Following this, I completed another fellowship in Oxford, gaining skills in partial knee replacement, revision knee replacement (re-do surgery), as well as kinematic alignment (personalised knee surgery). I was also awarded a prestigious travelling fellowship from the BOA (British Orthopaedic Association) to visit centres in the USA, including Chicago and Philadelphia (Rothman Orthopaedic Institute).
I also completed another fellowship at Leeds Teaching Hospitals, treating patients with severe traumatic injuries, as well as cartilage regenerative surgery, including stem cell treatments. At Cambridge University Hospital, I treat multiply-injured patients, who are referred from around the East of England region.
During my training, I was awarded a number of prizes, including the Trinity Cup for the most accomplished trainee, Cambridge Trainee of the Year and a research grant from Addenbrooke’s Charitable Trust. This grant is being used to investigate the effect of pre-operative muscle strength on the outcomes of arthroscopy (keyhole surgery).
Although I have a strong surgical pedigree, I am also acutely aware of the need for non-operative measures. This includes a holistic approach to my patients, and offering alternatives to surgery such as injections, targeted physiotherapy, and the use of braces and splints when indicated.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Arman Memarzadeh at Spire include:

I am heavily involved in orthopaedic research, with the aim of improving the outcomes of surgery for patients. I have published a number of articles on the importance of muscle strength for better surgical outcomes. At Cambridge University Hospital, I lead on the development of the enhanced recovery programme, to ensure patients return to independence as soon as possible for them.
My articles on a variety of topics have been published in high profile medical journals. A full list can be found using a Google Scholar, or Pubmed search.
I have three children and enjoy watching, and sometimes playing, a variety of sports, including rugby, football and skiing. I have raised money for charity through various sporting events in the past, and keen on maintaining personal fitness through sport.
