Mr Faizal Ali

Consultant Orthopaedic Knee Surgeon

FRCS (Eng) FRCS (Tr&Orth)

Specialises in

I have a special interest in sports injuries to the knee both in adults and in children. I trained in Sheffield with a Knee Fellowship in Newcastle and a short Trauma Fellowship in New York.

I was voted ‘South Yorkshire Orthopaedic Trainer of the Year’ on five occasions. I was given a life-time award for training by the South Yorkshire training scheme in 2012. I was twice shortlisted by BOTA as one of the top trainers in the UK. In 2018 I was again voted Trainer of the Year, this time by East Midlands. In 2017 I was honoured by the South Yorkshire Orthopaedic Training Rotation by the creation of an annual award: The ‘Fazal Ali Award for Academic Excellence.’

I work at Chesterfield Royal Hospital and the Sheffield Children’s Hospital where I am helping to set up a national referral service for these problems in children.

I have published my work, written chapters and given invited lectures on training issues and knee surgery both nationally and internationally. I have co-edited ‘Examination Techniques in Orthopaedics’ which is a best-selling orthopaedic text and has recently been published in Chinese. I am the founder in 2007 of the largest clinical examination course worldwide: The Chesterfield and Sheffield FRCS Clinical Course.

I serve as a senior examiner for the Intercollegiate Board in the FRCS(Tr&Orth) examinations. In 2017 I was elected to the panel of international examiners. I also serve on the board of examiners in other countries with the view that this would help advance the standard of orthopaedic training worldwide. I am a former Training Programme Director for South Yorkshire and am presently the Academic Secretary of the British Orthopaedic Sports Trauma and Arthroscopy Association (BOSTAA). I am head of the Question Writing Committee of the Intercollegiate Board.
