"Spire Yale provides an excellent service to the needs of patients in the private sector. I see an increasing trend for patients seeking private treatment in this exceptional hospital."
I have been an orthopaedic consultant for over a decade in North Wales. I completed my medical degree in India, before moving to South Africa to further my training in trauma and orthopaedics. After relocating to the UK, I worked towards achieving my professional goal and became a locum consultant in 2007, obtaining a substantial post in 2010. My areas of interest include trauma, lower limb arthroplasty and general orthopaedic conditions.
In my present position as a consultant in trauma and orthopaedics, leading elective services at Abergele Hospital and Glan Clwyd Hospital, Rhyl. I will continue to develop skills and knowledge in my specialist areas of revision arthroplasty in lower limbs, hand disorders and trauma. I am also involved in the teaching, audit and research activities of the department and these are vital to maintaining and improving patient care.
I have performed in excess of 1000 hip and knee arthroplasties. I regularly perform lower limb revision arthroplasties for reasons including: infection, metal on metal complications and mechanical loosening. In addition, I also treat general upper and lower limb conditions like carpal tunnel release, minor dupuytren's, trigger finger release, trapeziectomy, bunionectomy and toe fusion.
I presently lead the elective orthopaedic services at Glan Clwyd Hospital.
I am interested in clinical teaching. I have an RCPS (Glasgow) diploma in Clinical Education and enjoy teaching the junior trainees. I take specialist trainees regularly and have wonderful feedback from them.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Bala Ramesh at Spire include:
Spire Yale 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.
