Hospital welcomes new consultants

01 November 2017

Orthopaedic consultant, Mr Nigel Brewster, who specialises in hip and knee surgery, is now seeing patients at Spire Washington Hospital every Friday morning.

Mr Brewster also works at the University Hospital of North Tees and has a particular interest in hip and knee replacements and revision surgery.

He said: “I have been a specialist hip and knee surgeon in the North East for 19 years. I am delighted to have started to practice at Spire Washington and look forward to helping many patients there.”

Also joining Spire Washington Hospital’s team of specialists is general surgeon consultant Mr Sunil Amonkar. Specialising in breast surgery - including the removal of lumps, mastectomy and reconstructive procedures - he will be available for appointments with patients at the hospital on Friday afternoons.

Mr Amonkar, who also works as a consultant surgeon at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Gateshead, said: “The team at Spire Washington are warm and welcoming with a very caring attitude. The hospital provides fantastic support and facilities.

“I am happy to see all breast related conditions and take great pride in providing the highest standards of care for my patients.”

Laura Farley, business development manager at Spire Washington Hospital, said: “We now have over 180 consultants ranging in specialities which, with the addition of our two new consultants, are growing even more. I’m thrilled to be welcoming both Mr Brewster and Mr Amonkar to the team.”
