Mr Asad Syed
Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon
FRCS, FRCS (Tr & Orth)
I am a qualified and experienced Orthopaedic surgeon who runs a comprehensive foot and ankle service. I also perform sports injury related operations around the foot and ankle involving ligament and tendon reconstructions. The bulk of my work focuses on bunion and corrective toe surgery. I want to emphasis the point that this is a big problem for many affecting work, walking and footwear.
I am keen to raise awareness among the general public that times have changed and foot and ankle surgery has advanced significantly and is part of a surgical revolution which ensures a pleasant and relatively pain free surgical experience which can transform life at any age.
Modern techniques of bony and soft tissue correction have ensured that bunion toe surgery is a safe, predictable highly successful operation that has changed the lives of many patients. Some of these can now even be done under local anaesthetic. With the advancements in orthopaedic surgery a number of procedures can now be performed using keyhole surgery. This may vary from cleaning of arthritis from a joint to fusing the ankle.
I qualified in 1987 and am an experienced Orthopaedic surgeon who runs a comprehensive foot and ankle service for the NHS at Wrexham Maelor Hospital. This is a tertiary referral centre for North Wales receiving and treating complicated cases from Bangor & Glan Clwyd hospitals.
I completed my training in Yorkshire working at the famous Leeds Teaching Hospital "Jimmy's". While training I became interested in foot and ankle surgery and completed a one year fellowship at Arrow Park Hospital on the Wirral. Prior to this I worked in many busy foot and ankle units in the UK and in most of the premier institutes in Dublin. I have a keen insight in working with people from urban and rural backgrounds.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Asad Syed at Spire include:
COVID-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service at Spire Yale Hospital.

My passion in life is to help people with my surgical expertise. I am part of a team of surgical experts who have been among the first to be sent from UK to disaster zones around the world.
I was the only Orthopaedic surgeon sent by the British Government to China in 2007 to help out in the Chinese earthquake. I have operated on patients in the various earthquakes in Kashmir 2005 and Indonesia 2009. With "Merlin" I have been to help and operate on the injured in Haiti, which I would describe as the most devastating disaster to date.
I am part of an international charity fitting artificial limbs to amputees in third world countries. My trips to the disaster zones have been followed up by many local and national papers. I am a keen sportsman having played hockey at professional level.
