Company: Ronan Banim Contact: Ronan Banim Contact Email: admin@ Address: Grosvenor Nuffield Hospital, Wrexham Road, Chester, CH4 7QP, UK Phone: 01244 680444 Web Address: Ronan specialises in lower limb problems, including hip and knee arthritis, joint replacement, sports injuries, and ligament reconstruction. After many years working as an Orthopaedic Surgeon, Ronan is delighted that his team and their hard work have been recognised in this prestigious awards programme. He discusses the services he offers and how he works hard to ensure that clients receive the support and advice that is right for them. “Personally, I have been based in Chester for over ten years, providing private orthopaedic services at Nuffield Grosvenor Chester. My main areas of interest are hips and knees; the most common conditions I treat are sporting injuries and degenerative problems. Consequently, I see a very wide variety of patients from youngsters with acute injuries, through to the older people with arthritis, and many conditions and all ages in-between. “For many patients who seek advice, an operation is not needed, but instead they can be treated using conservative measures, including physiotherapy, with whom I work closely. However, if surgery is required, patients can be assured by the experience that comes from a surgeon with a high volume practice. The most common procedures I do are knee arthroscopies, hip replacements, knee replacements, and ligament reconstructions, including ACLs. I have brought new ideas Ronan Banim is one of the leading consultant orthopaedic surgeons working in Chester, and the surrounding areas of Cheshire, Wirral and North Wales. We invited him to tell us more about the services he offers. to the hospitals where I work, including introducing enhanced recovery after surgery, and being the first surgeon in the North West to use custom-made knee replacements.” Looking ahead, Ronan and his team are keen to continue offering the same level of support to clients which has led them to the success they enjoy today, as he proudly concludes. “Since starting in the private sector, my ethos has always been to put the patient first. It is essential that patients are able to express their views, and be confident that their problems have been listened to. In doing so, I believe that the best care can be given, closely tailored to the patients’ needs and wishes. I also believe in the importance of the team around me, including hospital staff, physiotherapists, my secretary and managers. I am certain that it is this approach that has resulted in us winning the award of ‘Best Orthopaedic Surgery, North West England’, and I am sure that by maintaining these principles, we will continue to improve the lives of our patients for years to come.” Best Orthopaedic Surgery - North West England PHA17009 PHA17008 Ronan Banim Founded in 1996, Kreativ Dental Clinic has grown since inception into a market leader that treats on average 600 patients per month, predominantly from northern and western Europe, most of whom require large dental treatments.
