About me

Mr Tandon qualified from Queens University Belfast Medical School in 1988. After a few years of postgraduate orthopaedic training in Belfast he did a pre-registrar trauma fellowship in Stoke on Trent Hospital Staffordshire. He trained in orthopaedic surgery on the Robert Jones and Angus Hunt Hospital Oswestry rotation from1993 to 1999 and at the concluding period of this rotation he put his attention to surgery relating to sports injuries.

On completion of this rotation he spent a further year in a specialist fellowship training at the Wakefield Orthopaedic and Sports Injury Clinic in Adelaide, Australia, where he focused on minimally invasive knee surgery, sport injuries and joint replacement surgery. He then spent a further short period in Melbourne working with an eminent knee surgeon.

On returning to the United Kingdom he initially took on a consultant post at Wolverhampton before moving to the University Hospitals of Leicester on August 2002.

His particular interests lie with soft tissue injuries relating to sports injuries of the knee and the treatment of this using minimally invasive surgery. He regularly sees amateur and professional sports people with knee problems.

He is the attending orthopaedic surgeon at the Rugby World Cup- England 2015
He looks after and provides orthopaedic surgical management for the:
Leicester Tigers Team and Academy
Leicester City FC Team and Academy

He also has a special interest in cartilage implantation, meniscal transplantation and the treatment of younger patients with knee degenerative problems. He manages the latter with modern conservative treatments and surgical treatments. Mr Tandon is also involved in teaching both medical students and senior trainee orthopaedic surgeons at the University Hospitals of Leicester.

Although he performs conventional total knee replacement surgery he has an interest in uni-compartmental (partial) knee replacement and other modern techniques of osteotomies for the treatment of degenerative changes of the knee in younger people.

He treats difficult patellar disorders, including pain and instability issues. He runs special clinics in association with a physiotherapist for these problems. He receives referrals from around the region. He also runs children and adolescent clinic for sports injuries and patellar problems in combination with a paediatric orthopaedic surgeon.
