About me

Mr El-Tawil is a well respected Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon who specialises in knee and hip surgery. His NHS base is at London North West University Healthcare Trust, where he is the Lead for Patient Outcomes following knee & hip replacement surgery.

His private practice is at the BMI Clementine Churchill Hospital in Harrow.

He has specialist experience in complex knee and hip surgery having worked alongside some of the most renowned orthopaedic surgeons in the world, in three prestigious international fellowships:

-The Sydney Orthopaedic Research Institute (SORI) in Australia
-The Royal Orthopaedic Hospital in Birmingham
-The Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre in Oxford.

At these centres, he mastered state-of-the-art techniques in knee and hip surgery directly from pioneer surgeons; he continues to perform these latest techniques for his current patients.

His undergraduate years were spent at Guy’s, King’s and St Thomas’ Medical School in London where he graduated in 2005 with distinction and a First-Class Honours BSc degree.

His higher surgical training took place in hospitals across London, including The Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, and the Royal London Hospital where he became advanced in complex trauma due to their air ambulance.

He was awarded fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons in 2014, entering the GMC Specialist Register in 2015. Completing an MSc in Trauma & Orthopaedics at The Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, he was awarded the Highest Achiever Prize for his work into computer-assisted knee surgery (robotic).

He is the recipient of multiple national and international awards, most recently the Royal Society of Medicine President’s Prize for work into patient outcomes following knee replacement.

He is an examiner on numerous orthopaedic courses and is the author of several research publications including a major Cochrane Review, and "The Unhappy Knee" for which he received the Best Arthroplasty Paper Award whilst in Sydney.

He is a Clinical & Educational Supervisor for orthopaedic surgical trainees on the North Thames rotation.
