    About

     

    Mr Acharya is a Consultant Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgeon practising at Warrington, Cheshire. His elective orthopaedic practice is exclusively surgery of the hip and knee. His NHS bases are at both Warrington Hospital and Cheshire & Merseyside Treatment Centre, Halton. Mr Acharya offers private consultations at Spire Cheshire Hospital. 

    To further his skills in lower limb surgery, he decided to complete his training with a fellowship and was selected for the coveted Exeter Hip Fellowship. He trained under the close supervision of Messrs Gie, Timperley, Hubble and Howel. He gained valuable experience in both the art and science of hip replacement. He also learnt the importance of meticulous data recording and follow up of patients. PEOC has outcome data on all patients since the early days of hip replacement and thus is instrumental in our learning about various aspects of this surgery. 

    Mr Acharya subsequently travelled to Melbourne, Australia for a further fellowship under the supervision of Mr Neil Bergman. Here he gained experience in navigation for hip and knee replacement under the supervision of Neil Bergman.

    He spent his spare time with Mr John Bartlett, an excellent knee arthroscopy surgeon, who taught with passion. He then returned to the UK in 2007 with great confidence and skills in joint replacement surgery. 

    Mr Acharya spent the next period of my training at The Royal Liverpool Hospital with Mr Taylor to hone his skills in ACL reconstruction surgery of the knee. He reinforced this further with training at Wrightington Hosptial.

    Mr Acharya guarantees an honest opinion, high quality of care, investigations and treatment appropriate to your individual requirements.

    Mr Acharya was very professional and clear in his diagnosis of the problem with my knee which had been gradually deteriorating over the last three years with the last year culminating in constant pain. He outlined the problem and what would be needed to rectify it. He was very attentive and knowledgeable. I would very much recommend Mr Acharya.

    My knee replacement was done on 31st August 2018 at the Spires Hospital in Stretton by Mr A Acharya. My treatment was of the highest order from beginning to end. The treatment was explained in full detail to me and he made me quite relaxed about it. Following the operation he made several visits to make sure that everything was alright. I had a six week consultation afterwards and was finally signed off after one year. Mr. Acharya was always courteous in his manner and very smart in his attire.

    From initial consultation through surgery and sixth week review for a total hip replacement I cannot praise Mr Acharya more highly for his skill as a surgeon, professionalism and courtesy. I would not hesitate to recommend Mr Acharya to any patient needing replacement surgery. I also commend the staff at the Spire Warrington for their exemplary care.

    After ten months of serious pain, the last five months having pain that was debilitating, Mr Acharya replaced my right hip six weeks ago and life has been so much better despite still going through recovery. Mr Acharya was totally professional in consultations and pre and post operation. I can certainly recommend him to anyone who is looking for orthopaedic surgery.

    The procedure and all potential problems were explained fully. Due to the complexity of my particular operation, Mr Acharya ensured that additional staff and expertise were on hand to assist if required. The operation was a success and follow up care was excellent from Mr Acharya himself and his team. Following the operation I now have greatly increased mobility and a much improved quality of life. I attribute this wholly to the surgical skills of Mr Acharya.

    Dear Mr Acharya, Can I firstly take the opportunity to apologise in the delay in sending this to you. From having a poor experience within the initial treatment stage, Once I was under your consultation I found the experience to be a pleasure from start to finish. On our first meeting you suggested alternative courses of action but once you had the latest x rays you were very clear I required surgery and whilst being young (54) I was happy to progress with your recommendation. The attention to detail prior to the operation at Spire was good and to see you post the operation was reassuring. It was also a nice surprise to see you on the Saturday morning where you were happy for me to leave the hospital after only Two days. My recovery has been much quicker than I originally expected and the scare from the operation has healed really well with numerous positive comments on how neat is in. On our 6 week follow up consultation you gave me clear instructions on what to do and what to avoid and as a consequence I no longer cross my legs from what was previously my most relaxing position. I would have no hesitation in endorsing you for the way you looked after me. Thank You, my quality of life has been increased as a consequence of your skills

    Mr. Acharya performed a total hip replacement on my right hip in June 2018. From my initial consultation to my post operation appointment he acted professionally and politely. I have been more than satisfied with my treatment. I followed all the advice I was given and I was able to walk without crutches and drive locally after 6 weeks without any pain. I have already asked my GP to refer me back for a replacement on my other hip.

    In 2016 I was involved in a motorbike crash when another driver pulled out in front of me. In the accident I sustained several injuries that worst being to my left knee and was unable to walk without crutches. Doctor Acharya was highly recommended by two other surgeons who worked at a different hospital and I agreed to be referred over to see him. From my first consultation with Dr Acharya I trusted him instantly and underwent a thorough examination where he explained to me in detail what was wrong with my knee and how he planned to put it right. I have had two rounds of surgeries with Dr Acharya the latter being a PCL and PLC reconstruction. In all my surgeries Dr Acharya has been very clear in my post-operative care with other professionals and physiotherapists to obtain the best outcome from each operation. With each consultation with Dr Acharya he has been keen to give advice on maintaining a positive mental attitude and other lifestyle changes that have had a huge impact on my life and have assisted my recovery. I cannot put into words how thankful me and my family are to Dr Acharya for his knowledge, skill, expertise, professionalism and care and he has given me.

    I had my new knee joint procedure performed by Mr Acharya. The operation was a complete success. I can now walk as normal. The new joint is very strong and I can now put full weight on that leg. I can swim, cycle, and am now playing tennis again. The actual treatment was made to be as comfortable as possible for such major surgery and all the staff involved on his team were very professional and couldn't do enough for me after the operation. Also the scar on my knee is very neat and not very noticeable at all. A very professional job. I am so pleased with the results.

    My son broke his ACL on a school ski trip. Along with the ACL, his heart broke. Luckily we ended up in the care of Mr Ashutosh Acharya. We found a kind and expert surgeon in the form of Mr Acharya. He has been very thorough form the diagnosis to the post-surgery review. Throughout the consultation Mr Acharya kept me well informed about the detail of the surgery, which helped me keep my nerves. As a parent I am very happy with the results and would like to thank Mr Acharya for the fantastic work. I would recommend Mr Acharya to all the parents in my shoes.

    My right knee failed and my cartilage had to be removed. This was successfully done by Mr Acaraya but clearly, this left me with no cartilage. Having no cartilage is very painful as the bones of my knee touch and don't move as a joint. The answer recommended by Mr Acharaya was regular injections of 'hyaluronic acid. This is a natural viscose liquid that helps work as a temporary cartilage allowing my knee joint to work. I have had the injection about every 6 months for about 3 years. It works very well and my pain is almost fully eliminated now and my mobility is good. The injection although quite painful works immediately it is given. But then there is a 2 to 4 day settling down period after the injection that the knee needs to sort out the swelling and pressure the injection causes. However after this few days pain/ pressure in the knee it settles down and gives a fantastic result for 4 to 6 months. I am hoping that the cumulative effect of several injections over the years is to sort of make a new cartilage in my knee.
