Hip and knee surgeon in Chester
Mr Banim’s current practice at Countess of Chester Hospital reflects his medical training: he does a large number of joint replacements and revisions, both of the hip and knee, choosing implants that best suit the patient. This includes joint replacement and revision as well as ligament reconstruction (such as after sporting injuries). Mr Banim also performs a large amount of key-hole surgery for problems that affect the hip, ankle, and knee. This involves the use of an arthroscope to look into joints to repair or remove damaged structures. Mr Banim was the first surgeon in Chester to do a hip arthroscopy.
Mr Banim is part of the orthopaedic team in the Countess of Chester Hospital that provides 24 hour emergency trauma cover in the Chester area. He runs a weekly trauma clinic and operating list, caring for both routine and complex fractures as well as other injuries. In common with his elective practice, Mr Banim deals with complex lower limb trauma, but will also see most common fractures, and operate on them if necessary. So if you break a bone, and go to the Countess of Chester Hospital fracture clinic on Thursday, you are likely to see Mr Banim there most weeks.
Mr Banim regularly attends meetings and courses in orthopaedics and trauma to make sure he is always up-to-date with the latest developments. He uses evidence gained from these meeting and courses, along with the current literature, to guide his professional decision making. This ensures that he provides the best treatment for all his patients.
Mr Banim is a member of the British Medical Association (BMA), British Orthopaedic Society, and British Hip Society, and attends meetings and conferences regularly.
Mr Banim knows what it's like to be a patient, having himself recovered from a broken elbow.
