Mr Ahmad Ali Who Is One of 22 Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeons at Spire Hartswood Hospital

Our final consultant guest of 2009 on Body Talk tonight was Mr Ahmad Ali who is one of 22 consultant orthopaedic surgeons at Spire Hartswood Hospital. Mr Ali specialises in sports injuries, knee surgery and hip surgery and tonight he be explained how he uses a new computer-assisted technique for knee replacement surgery.  Commonly known as “the sat nav knee replacement”, the computer helps to ensure perfect alignment for the new knee joint.  But don’t worry, the surgeon is there too – this is not robot surgery!

Mr Ali answered some of the following questions;

How long have you been working as an orthopaedic surgeon?
What drew you to this area of surgery?
What are the common injuries that you see from different sports?
What’s the typical age of patients having a knee replacement operation?
What material is the artificial joint made of?
