Mr Sunil Kumar
Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon
MBBS (Con), FRCS (Eng), FRCSI, FRCS (Tr&Orth), Dip Sports Med (Ed)
I am a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon offering specialist private knee surgery and general orthopaedic surgery. I have a particular interest in sports injuries and have treated sports men and women at various levels. I work closely with numerous sports physiotherapists, and also work with surgeons around the country in developing the exciting new field of arthroscopic knee surgery.
Within sports injuries, I have developed rapid rehabilitation programmes for traumatic osteochondral lesions requiring repair cartilage transplantation, anterior and posterior cruciate ligament reconstruction along with multi-ligament stabilisation.
I also offer the latest in knee replacement surgery, including the much publicised 'gender specific' knee replacement and the 'patient specific knee implant'.
I trained at the London Hospital Medical College, qualifying in 1989 and undertook my orthopaedic training at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, followed by specialist knee and sports trauma fellowships in New Zealand and Australia.
I was appointed as a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon in 2000, and my NHS practice is at Queen's Hospital, Romford and King George Hospital, Goodmayes. I have been clinical director for the musculoskeletal service and am an active faculty member of knee surgery training courses and trainee appointment committees.
I am available for consultations for children aged five and above.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Sunil Kumar at Spire include:
