Mr. Anand works in the specialist knee and hip unit at the Leeds Teaching hospitals NHS trust. Besides his very active NHS practice, he also practices at Nuffield hospital and Spire hospital in Leeds. As a surgeon practicing at a tertiary referral centre, a major part of his practice involves managing complex problems referred from colleagues and neighbouring hospitals.
Mr. Anand has special interest in treating all aspects of knee problems from sporting injuries to the arthritic knees. He is a recognised expert in treating Anterior Cruciate ligament injuries and led a working group which wrote national guidelines on ACL reconstruction (https://www.boa.ac.uk/resources/best-practice-book-for-management-of-anterior-cruciate-ligament-injuries.html). He has extensive experience in dealing with complex knee injuries, requiring reconstruction of multiple injured structures in the knee joint. His surgical approach is to preserve joint surface and meniscus to maximise function. He was part of the group which developed national guidelines for arthroscopic knee surgery. He is the only surgeon in Leeds who regularly treats paediatric knee problems both in the NHS and in private sector. If an arthritic joint cannot be preserved, he offers a range of knee replacement options using latest techniques including robotic surgery.
He holds weekly acute knee injury clinics at Nuffield Health Leeds Hospital, Spire Leeds Hospital and within the NHS to ensure prompt and optimum treatment for often missed injuries.
He also has extensive experience in hip arthoscopic surgery, to deal with selected groin pain conditions and trochanteric bursitis.
Mr. Anand trained in Orthopaedics in London, Manchester and Leeds. Upon completion of his UK orthopaedic training, he undertook Specialist Surgical Fellowship training in arthroplasty and sports injuries in Australia. He is a trainer for arthroscopy skills and regularly conducts workshops for orthopaedic trainees. He is a founder member and Academic chair for International Society for Knowledge for Surgeons on Arthroscopy and Arthroplasty (ISKSAA) and is editor-in-chief of Journal of Arthroscopy and Joint Surgery.
Mr. Anand is regularly invited to present his research work at various national and international meetings. He has published widely on various knee and hip topics and contributed with chapters in books.
Mr Anand is an active member of JointMotion team. In keeping with JointMotion ethos, he believes in empowering patients with detailed information about their condition. He aims to deliver exceptional quality patient-centred care to achieve the best outcome for his patients.
