"Spire Southampton Hospital does everything it possibly can to allow me to give treatments to patients that are second to none."
I am a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon who has international fellowship training in Lower Limb Arthroplasty and Limb Reconstruction. My clinical interests are orthopaedic surgery including knee replacements and ACL reconstructions, limb reconstruction and joint pain treatment.
I completed my orthopaedic training at the internationally renowned Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital, Oswestry where I was awarded the Lloyd Griffiths Medal. Having qualified as a doctor from UWCM in 1997, and after completing my basic surgical training I worked in orthopaedics at The Royal Orthopaedic Hospital, Birmingham. I was a Research Trauma Fellow at University Hospitals Birmingham with Professor Sir Keith Porter before my Higher Surgical training on the Oswestry-Stoke programme. Amongst the highly experienced surgeons I trained with are Professor Thomas (limb reconstruction) and Professor Richardson (cartilage Regeneration techniques) as well as Mr Dai Rees (sports knee surgery) and Mr Richard Spencer Jones (revision hip and knee surgery).
In order to enhance my expertise in hip, knee and limb reconstruction surgery, I undertook two international fellowships. Firstly the Australian Orthopaedic Association accredited fellowship in hip and knee surgery (during this time I also was an Honorary Lecturer at the University of Adelaide and helped develop the enhanced recovery service). Secondly, the Fellowship in Limb Reconstruction at The Russian Ilizarov Scientific Centre for Restorative Traumatology and Orthopaedics, Kurgan, Russia.
I am an Honorary Senior Clinical Lecturer at the University of Southampton. I am the postgraduate education lead for orthopaedics at UHS and give invited lectures at scientific meetings internationally. I have been the departmental clinical lead for medical students.
My teaching has won me the ‘Wessex Trainer of the Year’ award in consecutive years, as well as a ‘Hospital Hero’ badge for the University Hospital Southampton. A number of articles have been published in the national press.
I am a member of Professional bodies including The British Association of the Knee and the British Limb Reconstruction Society and actively gather Patient Reported Outcome Measures for the procedures I carry out.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Amir Qureshi at Spire include:
Orthopaedics - hip and knee
COVID-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service at Spire Southampton Hospital.
I am married with four children. My culinary skills have been key to my successful 12 year marriage! Efforts to capture moments to treasure with the kids have led to a keen interest in photography.
