Mr Prakash Chandran
Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon
MBBS, MS, FRCS (Tr&Orth)
My clinical practice covers all aspects of adult musculoskeletal problems. My main interest is in hip and knee surgery, particularly primary and revision arthroplasty and arthroscopic surgery of the hip and knee.
I graduated from Bangalore, India in 1996. I followed this by training in Chandigarh and Liverpool and in 1999 I gained a masters degree in orthopaedic surgery from the post graduate institute of medical education and research. I then completed my specialist registrar training in the Liverpool region and underwent further fellowship training in advanced hip and knee surgery at Wrightington lower limb unit before taking up my consultant post at Warrington and Halton Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
I am actively and regularly involved in teaching the undergraduate and postgraduate students and I have also taught at the basic science course held in Wrightington. I have a thesis which was published in 1999 entitled 'complex injuries to the mid foot'.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Prakash Chandran at Spire include:
Arthroscopy, cheilectomy, complex hip and knee surgery,patella stabilisation, tibiofemoral, ACL reconstruction, arthroplasty, bicompartmental (total) knee replacement, bone graft, image guided joint injections, knee replacement (partial), meniscectomy for meniscus tear, tibiofemoral, unicompartmental knee replacement (UKR), trigger point injections, minimally invasive knee replacement, chondroplasty, bilateral hip replacement, amputations, tibiofemoral and patella stabilisation.
