I am a consultant orthopaedic surgeon specialising in hip arthroscopy and knee surgery. Besides knee replacements, I deal with complex knee injuries in young adults. I have weekly acute knee injury clinics at the NHS and at Spire Leeds to ensure prompt and optimum treatment for these often missed injuries.
I trained in orthopaedics at London, Manchester and Leeds. Upon completion of my UK orthopaedic training, I undertook one year of specialist surgical fellowship training at Sportsmed SA, Australia, before taking up my consultant post. I worked as a consultant knee and hip arthroscopic surgeon at North Tees University Hospital for seven years, where I was instrumental in developing a sports injury service.
I have a special interest in meniscal preservation surgery in young adults and have regularly presented my results at various meetings. I have extensive experience in hip arthoscopic surgery, to deal with selected groin pain conditions and trochanteric bursitis.
I am an executive member of the British Knee Society and have been involved in developing referral guidelines for knee arthroscopic surgery. I am also currently chairing a steering group which is working on national guidelines for ACL injuries.
I am a Royal College of Surgeons’ trainer for arthroscopy skills and regularly conduct workshops for orthopaedic trainees. I am a founder member of ISKSAA, a society which trains surgeons in India on the latest surgical techniques. I am also part of the steering group for the MCh course in orthopaedics at Teesside University and help organise its teaching programme.
I am editor-in-chief of the Journal of Arthroscopy and Joint Surgery (www.sciencedirect.com/jajs). I am on the editorial board for the Journal of Clinical Orthopaedics & Trauma and a reviewer for The Knee and Annals of Royal College of Surgeons. I have published extensively on knee pathologies and regularly get invited to national and international forums, to present my work.
I believe in empowering patients with detailed information about their condition. I aim to deliver exceptional quality patient-centred care to achieve the best outcome for the patients.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Sanjeev Anand at Spire include:

My research interests include knee ligament reconstruction, meniscus repair and arthroscopic knee surgery.

Besides spending time with my family, I try to keep fit with various outdoor pursuits. I have ran a couple of marathons and enjoy hill walking. I recently climbed Mount Kilimanjaro.
