“Mr. Hanna reviewed the options for treatment with me. He was very thorough and explained the options extremely clearly. We agreed on a procedure initially then Mr. Hanna reviewed it with me on the day of the operation, which was then carried out. I was very confident that the operation would be a success, which so far, it has turned out to be.“

    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.

    Hip Replacement
    Mr Hanna performed hip replacement surgery on me in November 2020, and reviewed me in Outpatients yesterday (Monday 17th May 2021). My initial six week follow up had been with one of his team. I was extremely pleased with my treatment throughout. Despite the difficulties of the pandemic, Mr Hanna really put himself out to get a date for my surgery at Newham Gateway, part of Barts Health Trust. Everything went flawlessly, Mr Hanna operated on me himself, and I was delighted with the results. My wound healed perfectly, with minimal scarring, and Mr Hanna managed to equalise my leg length as I had requested (I had significant leg length disparity preoperatively). I would thoroughly recommend him as a surgeon.

    Very honest. Ended up sending me on my way without surgery, it would have been far easier for him to convince me to stay and go through with the operation.
