Mr Kiran is a champion of the MCh (Orth) Dundee degree and travels each year to impart his surgical knowledge. This year he gave a varied lecture series including Total Hip Replacement, Limb Length Discrepancy, Complex Reconstructions in Arthroplasty, and Arthroplasty in the Trauma Scenario, which was enthusiastically received. Mr Kiran also explained what the MCh (Orth) Dundee qualification has done for him on a personal level and how this year’s students can use the degree to their advantage.

He was awarded a visiting fellowship in lower limb arthroplasty and arthroscopy at Celle General Hospital, Germany. He was a visiting fellow at Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, Stanmore. He completed the FRCS (Tr&Orth) and is a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh and has widely published research in many journals worldwide. He completed his orthopaedic training in the UK and is on the Specialist register for Orthopaedic surgeons. He previously worked as a Locum Consultant Orthopaedic surgeon at the Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospitals NHS Trust. Mr Kiran currently works as an Advanced Knee Fellow at Cheltenham General Hospital.

Mr Arpit Jariwala, Director - UDOTS, stated:

“Manish Kiran has been a great supporter of the UDOTS and a brilliant example of the benefits of undertaking MCh (Orth) Dundee course for furthering one’s orthopaedic career. Over his UK training and with some prestigious fellowships, he has enhanced his orthopaedic experience extremely well. I have known Manish now for nearly eight years, and he is defined by his pleasant personality with sound clinical knowledge and surgical skills and by his relentless interest in research and teaching. It is no surprise that his lecture overran by nearly two hours as the MCh (Orth) students were keen to extract every facet of his experience in lower limb arthroplasty.”
