Mr Jeya Palan

Consultant Hip and Knee Orthopaedic Surgeon


Specialises in

  • Hip replacement surgery
  • Knee replacement surgery
  • Revision hip and knee replacement
  • Knee arthroscopy
  • Hip and knee injection

I am a consultant orthopaedic surgeon at Spire Leeds, with a special interest in primary and revision hip and knee replacement and in particular, the management of periprosthetic joint infections and fractures.

My academic interests (from my PhD and NJR Fellowship) include outcomes of primary and revision arthroplasty surgery and I have been awarded national research grants to run and coordinate research studies. I served as an Associate Editor on the editorial board of the BJJ (2012-2016). 

I have a strong interest in helping develop the profession and my time as BOTA President and sitting on the RCS England Council and BOA Council has given me valuable insight into strategies for promoting and enhancing T&O as a specialty and an understanding of the challenges of clinical leadership.

I have recently been awarded the British Hip Society sponsorship for the British Orthopaedic Association (BOA) Future Leaders Programme for 2021. The BOA’s vision for the Future Leaders Programme is to create an alumni of leaders with the skills and knowledge to improve the delivery of clinical care and to influence positive change within the profession.
