Biography & Education

About Mr Kash Akhtar

Mr Kash Akhtar is a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon specialising in knee injuries and treatments. He studied at Imperial College, graduating with a Distinction in Surgery and completed a subspecialty fellowship in knee surgery (sports injuries, trauma and joint replacement) at Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre, Oxford. He was subsequently awarded the Winston Churchill Fellowship and spent 6 months in international centres of orthopaedic excellence across the U.S. He has given over 100 international presentations and has received multiple prizes and awards. Mr Akhtar has been a Consultant Trauma & Orthopaedic Surgeon at Barts Health NHS Trust since 2014, one of the busiest hospitals in the U.K., which receives complex tertiary referrals from a broad area. He has particular expertise in sports injuries, arthroscopic knee surgery, meniscal surgery/repair, cartilage injuries, knee ligament reconstruction, realignment surgery, partial and total knee replacement. However, his overriding philosophy is only to use surgery when absolutely necessary or as a last resort when all suitable non-surgical treatments (including physiotherapy, activity modification, exercise prescription, orthotics, braces, medications and guided injections) have been tried appropriately. Mr Akhtar is an appointed Reader in Orthopaedic Surgery & Surgical Education at Barts and the London School of Medicine & Dentistry, QMUL where he is the Course Director for the International Masters in Orthopaedic Trauma Science. He is a Training Programme Director for the Royal London Trauma & Orthopaedic Surgery and an Honorary Senior Fellow at University of Melbourne, AU. Mr Akhtar grew up in Buckinghamshire and enjoys football, NFL, tennis, cricket, and listening to jazz, classical, rap & hip-hop music in his spare time.
