"Spire Elland Hospital is a very supportive, and friendly environment. All the staff work well with each other and for the benefit of the patient."
I am a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon with a specific interest in joint replacements in patients of all ages. I have an interest in the testing, and development of joint replacements, which last longer and offer greater function to patients who want to live pain free and active lifestyles.
I offer opinions and treatments, ranging from injections, joint manipulations and surgery for hip and knee conditions. For appropriate patients, I offer arthroscopic (keyhole surgery) of the knee, including meniscal surgery and repair. I also offer realignment surgery to appropriate patients.
My areas of interest are in joint preservation, and if required high functioning joint replacements. I specialise in partial and full knee replacement, as well as uncemented and cemented hip replacements, with long lasting ceramic bearing surfaces.
To date, I have performed over 3,000 orthopaedic operations, including hundreds of knee arthroscopies (keyhole surgery). I have also performed hundreds of hip and knee replacements.
I qualified from the University of Liverpool Medical School, and completed a higher Doctorate of Medical Research degree, MD(Res), at Imperial College London, under the supervision of Orthopaedic Surgeon, Professor Justin Cobb, Orthopaedic surgeon to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. I completed higher orthopaedic surgical training on the North Yorkshire rotation and fellowship training in hip and knee surgery at the regional revision centre and world renowned Wrightington Hospital.
I am a reviewer for numerous clinical journals including Injury, The Knee, Bone and Joint Journal. I am an expert witness for the General Medical Council and compile expert reports in cases involving hip and knee surgery.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Adeel Aqil at Spire include:
COVID-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service at Spire Elland Hospital.
