    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.

    I went to see Dr Malik with a knee issue, he was very thorough. I had X-rays and then an MRI scan to determine the cause. I had a steroid injection which so far had been successful. I have been pleased with his explanations, advice and care.

    Mr Malik is very likable gentleman who puts you at ease right from the start. He understood the problems I'm having with my knee and instantly offered a couple of solutions to help me. Throughout Mr Malik was happy to answer any question I had. Although my condition will require further surgery in the future, its Mr Malik I'd seek to perform the surgery.
