Sanat Shah: Hip and Knee Specialist in Manchester
Mr Sanat Shah is Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at Manchester Royal Infirmary. A specialist in hip and knee replacement surgery and knee arthroscopy, he provides expert private treatment for conditions including arthritis and sports injuries at three leading independent hospitals in the Manchester area.
Trained in trauma and orthopaedic surgery in Manchester and Southampton, and with further subspecialist training in lower limb replacement surgery, Mr Shah has been a consultant orthopaedic surgeon at Manchester Royal Infirmary since 2003. He is highly experienced in both trauma surgery and elective procedures, and is an undergraduate and postgraduate tutor at Manchester University.
Mr Shah is skilled in the diagnosis and treatment of knee conditions using arthroscopy, a type of keyhole surgery. Performed under general anaesthetic as an outpatient procedure, a small flexible fibre optic tube (arthroscope) is inserted into the knee, sending back images to a video monitor. This allows Mr Shah to examine the bones, ligaments, cartilage and tendons and determine the cause of any knee pain, or assess the level of damage in an injury. The progression of arthritis can also be monitored.
By inserting tiny surgical instruments through the arthroscope, Mr Shah is also able to carry out a number of knee treatments, including repair to damaged ligaments, tendons and cartilage, drainage of any built-up fluid, and removal of loose sections of bone and cartilage.
Mr Shah offers expert assessment and treatment for a wide range of hip and knee problems, including arthritis, trauma, sports injuries, avascular necrosis and hip dysplasia. He specialises in:
- Lower limb arthroplasty
- Hip and knee replacement
- Revision hip and knee replacement
- Knee arthroscopy
- Keyhole surgery
Mr Shah's consultation fee for those with private medical insurance is a maximum of £230. His initial consultation fee for those without private medical insurance is also £230, with a follow up cost of £150.
Mr Shah has special interest in treating young patients with hip and knee arthritis, as well as those with sports injuries. He performs both cemented and uncemented hip replacements. He also uses various hip replacements with different articulations (metal on poly, metal on metal and ceramic on ceramic).
Developments in materials and manufacturing techniques have led to artificial knees that are longer lasting, and the advice for patients to take up lower impact forms of sport such as cycling, swimming and walking has resulted in knee replacements that are still working well after 18 years. Mr Shah offers both total knee replacement and partial knee replacement, a less invasive operation which is suitable for people with arthritis localised in just one part of the knee.

What patients say about Sanat Shah
I would just like to express my thanks to you for my recent experience as you performed a hip-replacement operation on my Right Hip. Prior to my operation I was unable to walk and now I am mobile again and able to live independently. The operation was carried out in a very profesionnal manner. Even to the date delay to ensure the bone graft material was available. As a result the operation has been very successful. The whole medical experience, from your care and expertise and the staff at the Alexandra hospital, was completely professional. Thank you.
