Mr Nitin Shetty is a Consultant in Orthopaedic Spinal Surgery with a special interest in Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS), degenerative conditions affecting the back and neck and infections and fractures of the spine.

Career to Date

 I have graduated from India and completed a postgraduate degree in Orthopaedics in India. I  trained as a registrar on the London-KSS deanery. Subsequently, I completed two spinal fellowships at Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, Stanmore and then at Guys and St.Thomas Hospital. 

 I have been trained in Spinal deformity cases and also in Minimally Invasive  surgical procedures. Most of my cases are carried out using an operating Microscope. I have been involved in full time research in the past and this has led to a degree by submission of a thesis. I have published articles in peer reviewed journals and presented at national and international conferences. I am actively involved in teaching and training of junior trainees and Orthopaedic registrars. 

I have an interest in Minimally Invasive Spinal operations. My present work includes degenerative spinal conditions, infection and fractures.

Confirmed my doctor's analysis and proposed a scan to determine where the nerve was trapped in the lumbar region. Am currently waiting for a date at our local hospital for which we are also paying
