Mr Jitendra Mangwani
Orthopaedic Surgeon - Foot and Ankle
MBBS (Gold Medal), MS (Orth), MRCS (Ed), FRCS (Tr&Orth)
I am a highly qualified fellowship-trained expert in all problems relating to the foot and ankle and have a busy NHS and private practice in the East Midlands and surrounding areas. I specialise in foot and ankle problems, including bunions/hallux valgus, big toe arthritis, complex deformity corrections, arthritis surgery, fusion (arthrodesis) and joint replacement - predominantly big toe joint and ankle replacement.
I regularly see and treat patients with sports related foot and ankle conditions such as Achilles tendon disorders, plantar fasciitis, stress fractures, ankle instability and shin splints. I use modern techniques including key hole surgery such as arthroscopy and non-invasive techniques such as Shockwave therapy whenever appropriate.
I have performed hundreds of hallux valgus (bunion) operations and many other foot and ankle procedures in both the NHS and private practice. These include fusion (arthrodesis) of foot and ankle joints, tendon and ligament repairs and reconstructions, deformity correction procedures, cartilage repairs and joint replacements.
I am very keen on academics including research, audit and teaching and am actively involved in both undergraduate and postgraduate medical education. I am regularly invited as a faculty member to national and international courses and conferences. I have been chosen as an 'academic champion' by University of Leicester and been conferred the title of an honorary fellow. I am chief investigator for studies on ankle fractures and Achilles tendon and am Principal Investigator for a number of multi-centre studies.
I am an elected member of the Scientific Committee of the British Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society (BOFAS) and a member of the editorial board of reputed Orthopaedic journals . I am a reviewer for The Bone and Joint Journal, JBJS(Br), and have published numerous articles in peer reviewed journals and authored several chapters in books.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Jitendra Mangwani at Spire include:
I perform foot and ankle surgery and also treat Osteoarthritis and Sports injuries.
