Welcome

Mr Amir Qureshi is a Consultant Knee Surgeon and Limb Reconstruction Specialist at the University Hospital Southampton, as well as the Wessex Nuffield and Southampton Spire Hospitals. He is internationally fellowship trained in the conditions he treats.

We aim not only to relieve the pain of your musculoskeletal problem, but also to get you back to doing the things you enjoy most, giving back the quality of life taken away.

After listening to how your symptoms are affecting you, expert examination and modern diagnostic techniques are used to provide a personalised solution addressing your individual problem. If surgery is needed, then we have the latest technologies to deliver this, such as 3D printed bespoke jigs. In combination with the anaesthetists and post op care team, enhanced recovery techniques are used as we strive to help you recover from your operation as quickly as possible.

This website contains some general information regarding the more common lower limb problems. There are also more specialised sections for physiotherapists, medical practitioners, and medical students.

Gareth Bennet, 29

I am Mr Gareth Bennett, a 29 year old soldier who dislocated my right knee and required a multiple ligament reconstruction 

The injury happened while playing football for the military, I hyper extended my right leg to the point of dislocation and then twisted as I came to the ground resulting in a grade 3 tear to my ACL and LCL (which required artificial replacements), a severed peroneal nerve, damage to both the PCL and MCL (which required hamstring grafts) and damage to the lateral meniscus cartilage and torn muscles.

I injured myself on the 1st of October 2014, I received an arthroscopy on the 14th October and a reconstruction on the 24th October and my 6 week check was on the 9th December, to which I was able to walk without crutches or a leg brace with ease (less for the nerve damage which resulted in drop foot) and the knee was completely stable and my recovery well ahead of schedule.

I would again like to thank Mr Qureshi for what he has done for me 

Thanks again.

Mr Gareth Bennett
