Mr Shashank Chitgopkar
Consultant Spinal Surgeon
MBBS, D.Orth, DNB Orth, FRCS (trauma and orth)
I am a consultant spinal surgeon at The Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital in Oswestry since May 2014. Previously, I was a consultant orthopaedic surgeon with special interest in spinal surgery at Warrington and Halton Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and consultant spinal surgeon at Alder Hey Children’s Hospital, Liverpool from January 2013.
I have trained in India and have undergone my trauma and orthopaedic training as a specialist registrar on the Mersey rotation. I have trained in spinal surgery with fellowships at The Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital in Oswestry and Alder Hey Children's Hospital, and at Hope Hospital, Salford and Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Shashank Chitgopkar at Spire include:
Degenerative disorders of the whole spine (disc prolapse, back pain, spinal stenosis)
I perform spinal injections including facet joints, sacroiliac joints, epidural injections, nerve blocks.
I perform surgery on all spinal levels including decompressions, fusions, spinal instrumentation.
Spire Liverpool Hospital is only able to provide Covid-19 tests to patients undergoing surgery at our hospital. Covid-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service.
I have a holistic outlook towards life and this reflects in my clinical practice.
My passion outside of medicine is in understanding the similarity between science, mythology and philosophy. I have been invited to lecture on my understanding of these sciences.

I also enjoy playing cricket in the local league.
