Mr Anand has a special interest in treating all aspects of knee problems from sports injuries to arthritic knees. As a surgeon practising at a tertiary referral centre, a major part of his practice involves managing complex problems referred from colleagues and neighbouring hospitals. He also regularly treats paediatric knee problems both in the NHS and in the private sector.  

He is a recognised expert in treating Anterior Cruciate ligament injuries and led a working group that wrote national guidelines on ACL reconstruction. He has extensive experience in dealing with complex knee injuries requiring the reconstruction of multiple injured structures in the knee joint. His surgical approach is to preserve joint surface and meniscus to maximise function. He was part of the group which developed national guidelines for arthroscopic knee surgery. If an arthritic joint cannot be preserved, he offers a range of knee replacement options using the latest techniques.

He holds weekly acute knee injury clinics at Nuffield Health Leeds Hospital to ensure prompt and optimum treatment for often missed injuries.

He also has extensive experience in hip arthroscopic surgery, to deal with selected groin pain conditions and trochanteric bursitis. 

Mr Anand trained in Orthopaedics in London, Manchester and Leeds. Upon completion of his UK orthopaedic training, he undertook Specialist Surgical Fellowship training in arthroplasty and sports injuries in Australia. He is a trainer for arthroscopy skills and regularly conducts workshops for orthopaedic trainees. He is a founder member and Academic chair for the International Society for Knowledge for Surgeons on Arthroscopy and Arthroplasty (ISKSAA) and is editor-in-chief of the Journal of Arthroscopy and Joint Surgery.
