Mr Azal Jalgaonkar
Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon
MS, FRCS (Orth)
I was born in Mumbai, educated at St John the Baptist High School and qualified as a doctor from the University of Mumbai in 2000. I completed basic surgical training and higher orthopaedic training in the UK. I trained as orthopaedic registrar on the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital rotation in London. I also have Masters in Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgery and worked at Botkin Hospital in Moscow, Russia which is one of the biggest trauma centre in Russia. I have also worked in specialised orthopaedic units like the Bone Tumour Unit in RNOH Stanmore and Great Ormond Street Hospital for children. After attaining FRCS qualification I completed Royal College of Surgeons approved fellowship in Adult Hip Surgery at Frimley Park Hospital and Paediatric Orthopaedic Fellowship at Southampton University Hospital.
I was appointed as a Consultant Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgeon at Frimley Park Hospital in 2015 and have a special interest in adult hip and knee surgery as well as paediatric orthopaedic surgery. I have a wide orthopaedic practice ranging from hip and knee joint replacement surgery and revision surgery, unicompartmental knee replacement, minimally invasive surgery, young adult hip pathology and hip impingement surgery including hip arthroscopy, knee arthroscopic surgery and paediatric orthopaedics. In my NHS paediatric practice I screen children with DDH and run ponsetti clinics for club feet with physiotherapists, see children with lower limb pathology and abnormal gaits. I also specialise in botox injections for children with cerebral palsy.
I have received prizes at orthopaedic meetings and published my work extensively in highly reputed peer reviewed orthopaedic journals. I have presented at numerous National and International meetings and continue my interest in Research and Training. I am also involved in teaching and examining orthopaedic trainees, sit on the ARCP panel to assess their annual clinical progress and am faculty member of FRCS Orth courses in London. I am a member of British Orthopaedic Association and am now a member of British Hip Society (BHS) and British Society for Children's Orthopaedic Surgery (BSCOS) and British Indian Orthopaedic Society (BIOS).
