Mr Chinnakonda Arvind
Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon
FRCS (Tr & Orth)
I am a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon specialising in hip, knee, foot and ankle disorders. I have been working a consultant for more than 15 years and I am currently working as an NHS Orthopaedic Consultant at the Royal Berkshire Hospital, Reading as well as providing private consultation and treatment at Spire Dunedin Hospital.
I qualified in 1986 following initial orthopaedic training in India, before coming to the UK for further orthopaedic training in the Wessex region.
During my medical student days, I was awarded the gold medal for Paediatrics and Certificate of Merit for General Medicine. I was also awarded the gold medal for the best outgoing student during my master’s degree in Orthopaedics.
I developed a day surgery procedure at West Berkshire Community Hospital for bunion deformity correction. I introduced total ankle replacement to Reading and did my first total ankle replacement in 2005.
I presented my thesis on "differential distraction for club foot" at the Tamilnadu Orthopaedic Association Conference and won a gold medal. I won second prize for my presentation on club foot correction at the Wessex region Gauvain Society meeting.
I was a faculty member for knee arthroscopy surgery at Royal College of Surgeons, London.
