Mr Jain or KJ, has been working in the NHS since 2005. He started working in the NHS after completing medical school and higher Orthopaedic training in India. The very first exposure was gained in the district general hospitals of Lincolnshire. He soon was promoted to the next level i.e. Registrar. During the registrar years, KJ received excellent training in various hospitals in the North-West and North Wales. It was during these years that he developed a strong interest in Foot and ankle surgery. The complex anatomy, fascinating biomechanics, interesting operations and varied pathology led KJ to developing an interest in foot and ankle surgery. During the years of training in addition to gaining surgical skills, KJ worked toward getting a master’s degree and passed MCh Trauma and Orthopaedics with merit.
In 2014, KJ passed FRCS Orthopaedic examination which paved the way for Consultant position. Following the success in FRCS, he secured British Orthopaedic Association (BOA) accredited fellowship at Wrightington Hospital, Lancashire, UK. Wrightington is a well known tertiary referral hospital where complex foot and ankle cases are treated. KJ thoroughly enjoyed the fellowship and gained valuable higher specialist training in foot and ankle surgery by working with three senior foot and ankle surgeons. KJ was appointed a substantive NHS Foot and Ankle Consultant in 2017.
KJ specialises in treating foot and ankle problems in adults i.e bunions, Achilles tendon problems, ankle pain, ankle instability, heel pain, toe deformities, flat feet, diabetic feet, arthritis, sports injuries, ankle fractures, metatarsal fractures etc. Patients will receive honest, compassionate and evidence based treatment. He is a member of British Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society (BOFAS), Royal College of Surgeons of England (RCSEng) and Britsh Orthopaedic Association (BOA). He regularly attends conferences to keep up to date with the latest developments. Research, training and educational activities have been additional interests. KJ has more than a dozen publications to his name and has presented papers in prestigious national and international conferences.
He continues to have a strong interest in teaching and training the next generation of doctors. He is an enthusiastic educator and trainer; he led the evening journal club of the Orthopaedic department in Dudley from 2016 to 2019 and also an examiner for medical students. He was an honorary senior lecturer at Edge Hill University (2017-2020). In addition, he is an ATLS instructor, reviewer for the prestigious Bone and Joint Journal and FRCS MCQ writing panel member.
