Mr Hanna is a fellowship-trained consultant orthopaedic surgeon with a specialist interest in hip and knee disorders. His NHS practice is based at the Royal London Hospital, 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 injuries, and the surgical management of lower limb trauma and fractures.
Mr Hanna's orthopaedic 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) surgery and joint replacement surgery.
Following completion of 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. His research endeavours to date have centred primarily around hip and knee reconstruction. His main interests include the assessment of outcomes following hip and knee surgery, and evaluating the behaviour of different bearing surfaces and materials used in total hip and knee replacements. He has presented and published widely on key aspects of hip and knee surgery, and continues to conduct research looking at implant design, performance, wear patterns and outcomes of total hip and knee replacements. This vast research experience allows him to practice evidence-based medicine utilising the most advanced technologies and surgical techniques, and choosing the most appropriate hip and knee implants/prostheses for his patients.

Whenever possible, Mr Hanna will pursue non-operative treatments, but will offer surgical options when necessary. He will always aim to accurately diagnose a patient’s problem, inform and educate them of their condition, and finally give them all the information required to make the right choices regarding their treatment. He 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, sports physicians, and physiotherapists to offer each patient a personalised and individual treatment plan.
