Career and experience:
Mr Atwal qualified in Medicine at the University of Bristol in 2001, having also been
awarded a BSc in cellular and molecular pathology. He then spent six months as a
Lecturer in Clinical Anatomy at the University of Oxford, and completed his basic and
higher surgical training in Bristol. He undertook advanced fellowship training at the
internationally renowned North Sydney Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Centre,
where he developed his expertise in lower limb surgery, including the treatment of
hamstring ruptures and knee injuries in elite athletes.
Since 2014, Mr Atwal has been a consultant based at Cheltenham General Hospital, specialising in trauma, knee and hip surgery. His practice covers all aspects of knee surgery, including knee replacement surgery, ‘keyhole’ surgery, ligament reconstruction, sports injuries and the treatment of patella dislocations. He has a particular interest in joint preservation surgery.
“I want to thank Mr Atwal for his excellent work in providing me with both a knee replacement last year and a hip replacement this year. It is not just the treatment, but the care and empathy shown by him, which has made the world a better place for me to live in now.”Back
