Mr Arshad Javed
Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon
FRCS (Tr and Orth), MCh (Orth)
My main interests are hip and knee replacement for all age groups, especially young patients and I have been instrumental in improving the lives of those unfortunate patients who developed arthritis following injuries, accidents, radiotherapy and avascular necrosis. My experience in knee surgery stems from training in all aspects of knee replacement including total knee replacement, partial knee replacement etc. In addition I carry out ligament reconstruction surgery by arthroscopy (keyhole surgery).
I have a conservative approach to orthopaedic problems and tend to treat the patients respectfully and carry out surgery as a last resort. I carry out injection and manipulation techniques for those who are not fit for surgery, to relieve their pain and suffering.
Having been chief hip and knee surgeon, I have developed an interest and expertise in revision hip/knee replacements which have failed due to infection, metal on metal articulations, fractures around the joint replacements (periprosthetic fracture management) etc. I deal with knee injuries and have a special interest in anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction including; revision surgery, meniscal damage and patella (knee cap) instability.
I completed my trauma and orthopaedic training in the North West region of England, mainly in Liverpool and Manchester. I carried out fellowships in hip surgery in Melbourne and also in Sheffield Childrens Hospital. I am a fully accredited Orthopaedic Surgeon. I am Head of Department at Blackpool Victoria Hospital and carry vast experience in the outcome measures of a patient where the patient satisfactory outcome and wellbeing is monitored.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Arshad Javed at Spire include:
