    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 is a very approachable and capable surgeon. My hip replacement under his care has been a great success. It was very interesting to see my xrays in clinic and listen to his detailed explanation about the type of prosthesis that was used. I am very happy to recommend him to other patients needing a hip opinion.

    Hip Replacement
    Sammy operated on my left hip last year and I was so pleased with his care that I sought him out to replace my right hip privately recently. I have the utmost confidence in Sammi as skilled surgeon and as someone who puts his patients at ease by giving them full explanations of the alternatives open to them in a friendly and non- condescending manner. Sammi arranged for my surgery efficiently, came to see me in the hospital afterwards, and has subsequently personally telephoned me to check that all is well and begin to arrange my aftercare. I do not think I could have had better treatment and care anywhere and would recommend Sammi to anyone who has suffered arthritis in the way I have done.
