About

Mr Atif Malik is a highly experienced Consultant Trauma & Orthopaedic Surgeon with a special interest in Hip, Knee and Sports Injuries.

After graduating from the University of Manchester Medical School, Mr Malik developed an interest in trauma, orthopaedics and sports injuries whilst working with the Orthopaedic Surgeon to Manchester United Football Club. He was awarded a place on the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital Training Rotation, one of the UK’s most prestigious orthopaedic registrar training programmes. Following this, he completed sub-speciality training in hip and knee pathology and was awarded the highly sought after John Charnley Fellowship at Wrightington Hospital with Professor Peter Kay (Medical Director for MSK Services, NHS England) and Professor Martyn Porter (Medical Director of the National Joint Registry).

He is also one of only 6 other Orthopaedic Surgeons in the the UK to be awarded the prestigious Fellowship of The American College of Surgeons (FACS).

Mr Malik has also received a number of additional fellowships and awards including the European Society for Sports Traumatology, Knee Surgery and Arthroscopy Fellowship in 2014. This allowed him to visit a number of centres of excellence in Europe and to further develop his surgical practice. He received the Ronald Raven Barbers Award by the Royal College of Surgeons of England and visited Dr Charles Brown, a world renowned figure in knee surgery specialising in meniscal injury and knee ligament reconstruction. He was also awarded the Ethicon Travelling Fellowship Award by the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh.

He was also the Club Doctor for the London Skolars Rugby League Club for a number of years.

Mr Malik believes in using technology to improve and enhance patient care. His patient record system is now completely digital and he uses his own personalised app for patients to use prior to and following surgery to allow information, guidance and information sharing including outcome reporting and physiotherapy guidance.

Alongside his clinical work, Mr Malik is passionate about teaching medical students and junior doctors. He has completed a Postgraduate Diploma in Clinical Education and is currently the Deputy Block lead for MSK at the University of Buckinghamshire Medical School.

Explanation

Mr Malik has such a lovely manner, instilling confidence and with a genuine warmth. He took the time to find out about me and not just the ailment and I felt he was genuinely interested. He explained all the options so I could make an informed decision. Due to changing jobs my policy was coming to and end shortly and he pulled out all the stops to find a slot for me to have my procedure, for which I am very grateful.

Highly professional and knowledgeable with a friendly, human approach. My knee problem was diagnosed and sorted quickly and efficiently, with a minimal pain and no post-surgery problems, alleviating my problems and allowing me to regain a use of the knee shortly after the arthroscopy.
