“I have had a successful partial knee replacement performed by Dr Hanna, and my experience has been excellent. From my first appointment with him, everything was explained in a very clear and easy to understand way. The doctor was very supportive and caring during the whole recovery process. I’m very happy with the outcome achieved, and I do recommend Dr Hanna and his team very highly. “

    About

    Mr Hanna is a fellowship-trained consultant orthopaedic surgeon with a specialist interest in hip and knee disorders. His NHS practice is based at the Royal London Hospital, one of the busiest major trauma centres in Europe, where he treats severely injured patients and those with complex hip and knee problems in a tertiary environment. His clinical interests include primary and complex primary joint replacements for degenerative conditions (arthritis), revision (re-do) joint replacement surgery for failure or infection, arthroscopic (keyhole) knee surgery for cartilage and ligament sports injuries, and the surgical management of lower limb trauma and fractures.

    Mr Hanna's orthopaedic training was on the prestigious Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital (RNOH) training programme during which he had excellent exposure to the full spectrum of hip and knee disorders and their reconstructive treatments including joint preservation techniques, arthroscopic (keyhole) surgery and joint replacement surgery.  Following completion of training, he undertook two advanced sub-speciality fellowships focusing exclusively on hip and knee surgery; the first was for a year at the world-renowned Rorabeck-Bourne Joint Replacement Institute at the University of Western Ontario in Canada, and the second was for a year at the Royal London Hospital, Barts Health NHS Trust. He also has fellowship experience from visiting a number of centres of excellence for hip and knee surgery and sports injuries in Europe including CUF Descobertas Hospital (Lisbon, Portugal), Vall d’Hebron Hospital (Barcelona, Spain) and the Rizzoli Orthopaedic Institute (Bologna, Italy).

    In addition to his busy clinical commitments, Mr Hanna is appointed as an honorary senior lecturer at Barts and The London School for Medicine and Dentistry, Queen Mary University of London, where he is actively involved in research, teaching, and training. His research endeavours to date have centred primarily around hip and knee reconstruction. His main interests include the assessment of outcomes following hip and knee surgery, and evaluating the behaviour of different bearing surfaces and materials used in total hip and knee replacements.

    A full list of his publications can be found using the following link:

    Whenever possible, Mr Hanna will pursue non-operative treatments, but will offer surgical options when necessary. He will always aim to accurately diagnose a patient’s problem, inform and educate them of their condition, and finally give them all the information required to make the right choices regarding their treatment. He believes that the best outcomes for patients can only be achieved when decisions are carefully considered and discussed within the framework of a multidisciplinary team. He works closely with fellow orthopaedic surgeons, anaesthetists, radiologists, sports physicians, and physiotherapists to offer each patient a personalised and individual treatment plan.

    Mr Hanna was very professional. There could have been more clarity on what my next steps should me. I would also recommend having a word with his secretary regarding communication between his office and the Hospital. There were a lot of issues, including my papers not arriving with the hospital as well as meetings being booked with Mr Hanna’s secretary but when I arrived at hospital, they had no idea I was coming.
