Mr Divya Prakash
Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon
MBBS (Hons), MS (Orth,) FRCS, Ed FRCS, Glas, MCh Orth, FRCS (Trauma & Orth)
I am a consultant orthopaedic lower limb specialist. I offer expert assessment and treatment of knee symptoms in adults of all ages, from young athletes with sports-related injuries to elderly patients with established arthritis of the knee. I am friendly and approachable, always involving the patient in the decision-making process to find the solution that best suits their individual needs and lifestyle.
I am a recognised specialist in disorders and surgery of the knee joint. I have a particular interest in sports injuries, ligament reconstruction, cartilage transplantation and knee and hip surgery. I'm one of the leading surgeons performing computer navigated surgery, knee replacement using patient-specific instrumentation and partial knee replacements, and one of the few surgeons performing cartilage regenerative surgery including cartilage transplant.
I have lectured and presented widely at national and international levels and am constantly researching new and improving methods of treatment. The training of specialist registrars is a regular part of my routine and I have been invited to teach at many institutions and am a faculty member and examiner for the Royal College of Surgeons, as well as an Honorary Senior Lecturer at Birmingham and Aston Universities.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Divya Prakash at Spire include:
Sandwell General Hospital, Sandwell and West Birmingham Hospitals NHS Trust
I represented my medical school in cricket so I still have a love for watching it regularly. My other interest is digital photography. I would also like to start playing bridge again as I was my university's champion. I would also like to take up playing golf again.
