Mr Stephen Guy
Consultant knee surgeon with a special interest in sports injuries
BMedSci MBBS MRCS FRCS Dip SEM
I am passionate about knee surgery and also the non-operative management of many knee complaints. I perform 700-750 surgical procedures per year and manage many patients with a non-operative multi-disciplinary approach.
I was appointed as a substantive consultant in 2011 at Bradford Teaching Hospitals as a consultant knee surgeon. This was after finishing two competitive and rewarding knee surgery fellowships. I took over the NHS work of a senior knee surgeon with a complex practice. Since then I have enjoyed building and nurturing a first class knee service with – weekly knee meeting, a ‘one-stop’ multi-disciplinary clinic, outreach sports injury clinics in A&E, day case complex knee surgery and driving regional knee research forward.
I have successfully treated athletes in a multitude of sports/recreational activities, from weekend warriors to people representing England/GB. I truly love my job, especially the satisfaction of getting people back competing again or walking pain-free having suffered with arthritis for years.
I am a reviewer for ‘The Knee’ journal.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Stephen Guy at Spire include:
What is an ACL injury? Symptoms, causes and diagnosis
Mr Stephen Guy explains what an ACL injury is and how it affects a person's movement. He details that diagnosis of an ACL injury can be made simpler using the LIMP index system and further facilitated by an MRI scanner, and says treatment includes operative and non-operative options.
COVID-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service at Spire Leeds Hospital.

I enjoy all sports. My main passion has always been rugby and only a few years ago I represented Yorkshire in the front row. My boots have not been hung up yet (and I should know better). I spend most of my spare time now running around/cleaning up after my brood of three.
