Mr Ankit Desai
Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon
MBBS BSC FRCS (TR & ORTH)
I am an orthopaedic surgeon who specialises in the diagnosis and treatment of shoulder and elbow conditions. I am dual fellowship trained and have a vast experience in treating a wide range of complex shoulder and elbow issues.
My area of expertise lies in the treatment of shoulder and elbow pathologies for patients of all ages. This includes rotator cuff injuries, shoulder and elbow instability, frozen shoulder, shoulder replacements and tennis elbow. I am proficient in advanced keyhole surgery techniques and employ modern surgical techniques and implants to ensure optimal outcomes for my patients. Additionally, I specialise in both specialist upper limb and general trauma cases.
I firmly believe in a shared decision-making approach and prioritise patient education to help them understand their condition and make informed decisions for their treatment. I collaborate with physiotherapists and radiologists to provide accurate diagnoses and personalised treatment plans.
I undertook my orthopaedic training in the Surrey and Sussex region, and completed my first fellowship at the highly esteemed South West Elective Orthopaedic Centre (SWLEOC) and went on to train at the internationally renowned Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital in Stanmore.
I currently practice in the NHS at Frimley Park Hospital where I was appointed in 2021 and have a busy elective and trauma practice.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Ankit Desai at Spire include:
