I offer a specialist foot and ankle service at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Gateshead. I offer a bespoke approach, tailored to each patient’s specific problem. I have a special interest in treatment of young patients with arthritis and soft tissue reconstructive surgery for sport related injuries around the ankle joint.
I completed my Higher Surgical Training in Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgery in the Northern Deanery, Newcastle upon Tyne. I held an Advanced Surgical Training Fellowship placement in Foot and Ankle Surgery at The Sheffield University Hospital and was a proud winner of BOFAS visiting Fellowship at Zurich.
I travel across the world to keep my skills up to date with new emerging techniques treating these injuries. I am clear and honest in my communication about any procedure, rehabilitation and likely outcome.
I have a certificate degree in evidence based orthopaedics (EBO) from Middlesbrough University. I play an active role in junior doctor education and training orthopaedic surgeons.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Kailash Devalia at Spire include:
Orthopaedics - ankle and foot
Ankle and foot sports injuries and ligaments reconstruction, minimally invasive surgery, young ankle arthritis treatment, ankle arthroscopy, Achilles tendon reconstruction
Spire Washington 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.
