Anant qualified as an orthopaedic surgeon in 1995. During the course of his training he was awarded the University Gold Medal in General Surgery.
He undertook specialist training in the Sheffield (North Trent) Orthopaedic rotation. Anants higher surgical training comprised of two fellowships : 1)Spinal Surgery Fellowship at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals
2)The prestigious National Spinal Fellowship at Leeds Teaching Hospitals. This was combined neurosurgical and orthopaedic spinal training.
Anant was appointed as a substantive consultant spinal surgeon at The Salford Royal Foundation Trust (Major trauma centre) and The Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital in 2013.
As a Consultant Spinal Surgeon at a large tertiary referral centre he routinely deals with many problems and procedures which are considered complex and rare in other centres. .Anant has a wide practice in spinal surgery undertaking complex procedures in all areas of the spine (cervical, thoracic and lumbar) including dealing with complex deformities and pathologies in children and adults.
Anant is a member of many spinal societies including the AO Spine Society and is on their faculty for education.
He is also the clinical governance lead for complex spinal surgery at Salford Royal Foundation Trust.
Anant is keen on continuous quality improvement in spinal surgery to ensure the best functional outcomes for my patients. He confidentially enter all patient data on to the British Spine Registry and Spinetango to assess his patient outcomes. This gives Anant a valuable self-audit tool to constantly improve his practise.
