    Mr. James Hahnel prides himself on the personal approach he has with his patients and the attention to detail he places on his surgery. Therefore he has maintained an excellent revision rate for both hip and knee replacement surgery as evidenced in the national comparative revision funnel plots comparing his own practice to every other surgeon in the country performing this type of surgery.

    Mr. Hahnel was appointed as an NHS consultant based at Bradford Royal Infirmary in 2011 following higher surgical training and a 1 year fellowship in hip and knee replacement. As one of the largest NHS joint replacement units in Yorkshire, there is continual innovation to improve practice, results and the patient experience. All his joint replacements are peer-reviewed as part of The Yorkshire Hip and Knee Group.

    Born and bred in Leeds, he studied medicine in Newcastle, returning back as a surgical trainee. He has a huge passion for sport preferring Windsurfing and Skiing. Accepting the reality of a busy professional and personal life, he therefore, plays squash, tennis and swims more regularly.

    Bedside Manner (5/5)
    Explanation (5/5)
    Patient seen for:
    My knee replacement was complicated by septic arthritis leaving me with serious problems with scar tissue . Previous Consultants had advocated a two stage replacement which would have affected my long term mobility. Mr Hahnel monitored me for 12 months and then was able to perform a total knee replacement and 3 months later I am fully recovered and my knee/leg is perfectly straight. Mr Hahnel explained everything at every stage and his knowledge and professionalism gave me assurance and confidence during a very traumatic period in my life. He is a genius as far as I am concerned and I will be eternally grateful to him.
