Mr Birender Kapoor
Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon
I have worked as a Consultant in Trauma and adult reconstructive surgery for six years. My subspecialty interests include primary and revision hip replacement surgery and knee replacement surgery. I have a special interest in revision for instability (dislocations) of the hip replacements and fractures around joint replacements. I am the co-founder of the Liverpool Metastatic Bone Service (LiMBS). I am a passionate proponent of aggressive treatment of cancer that spreads to the bone to allow the patients to stay mobile and pain free. I perform massive endoprosthetic replacement to reconstruct the bone loss after cancer excision.
I specialise in hip replacement surgery with cemented and cementless implants, partial and total knee replacements and revision hip surgery.
