Knee Surgery

Mr Ashraf Is a specialist knee surgeon. He works at the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital, Birmingham which is one of the leading tertiary referral centers in the country. He also works at the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital Birmingham which is a Major Trauma Center.

Apart from the NHS he also works at The Edgbaston Hospital and the West Midlands Hospital.

Appointed in 2005, he has an enormous experience in dealing with different problems of the knee. His super-specialist interest is dealing with problems related to the Knee Cap (Patella) and the ligaments of the knee.

Mr Ashraf's philosophy

"The knee is a complex joint, probably the most important joint in the
 body. If something goes wrong, I believe, it should be looked after by a
 dedicated team specializing in its care.

As a specialist knee surgeon exclusively treating the knee,

 my team and I endeavor to provide the highest degree of care. My
approach is to first obtain an in depth understanding of the problem
and then provide a personalised care based on the individuals needs. I
work with dedicated physiotherapists as I am fully aware that Surgery is
 often not the most appropriate treatment. I believe that if surgery is
to be undertaken it should be least invasive, with the most reliable
technique and one that provides the quickest and most complete recovery."
