Professional profile

Mr Hanna is a consultant orthopaedic and trauma surgeon based at the Royal London Hospital (Barts Health NHS Trust), 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-related injuries, and the surgical management of lower limb trauma and fractures.

Mr Hanna's 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) surgical techniques, and joint replacement surgery.

Following completion of his 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 clinical 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.

He has presented and published widely on key aspects of hip and knee surgery including more than 45 peer-reviewed scientific articles and 5 book chapters. A full list of his publications can be found using the following link (copy and paste):


Whenever possible, Mr Hanna will pursue non-operative management, but when necessary, will offer surgical treatment options. He believes that his role as a surgeon is to accurately diagnose a patient's problem, inform them of their condition, and give them all the information they need to make the right choices regarding their treatment.

Mr Hanna also 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 and physiotherapists to offer each patient a personalised and individual treatment plan.
