Yaser Jabbar is an expert surgeon who treats all injuries and deformities of bones in the arms and legs for adults
"My aim as a surgeon is to work with you and your lifestyle to get you back to full function as soon as possible. No matter
how bad your injury or how much treatment you have had before, I can offer you the next steps in your care. I can guarantee you will receive clear direct advice so that you leave any consultation with a definite idea of what are the next best steps for you and your unique situation. Any surgery you need will be planned and timed to fit your needs as much as possible so that you can get the maximum benefit as soon as you can.
As a surgeon whose passion is limb reconstruction surgery, I am one of the few surgeons in London and the South East of England who regularly treats children and adults with complex limb injuries and deformities. As part of a multi-disciplinary team of surgeons and allied health professionals I can make sure you receive the right care, from the right person, at the right time.
My comprehensive international training in limb deformity and reconstruction means you will always get the most up- to- date and modern perspective on the treatment of your problem. I was one of the first surgeons in the world to use magnetic lengthening nails for limb length discrepancy in my training in Australia, and was the first to bring this technique to a major London teaching hospital within the last 3 years. Whilst it is nice to use the fanciest technology available, that may not be the best option in every case. I always focus on what your goals are and what can get you back to your desired function or outcome with the least number of surgeries in the simplest way.
I keep contact with some of the best surgeons in the world, and as a result I can look after you after you return with an injury from abroad, or can make sure you can continue to be treated after you leave the UK in a number of international locations including the US, Canada, Australia, Singapore, Colombia, and Cyprus to name a few.
Aside from operating I am interested in patients who have suffered injuries or require clear medico-legal reports in order to take their care forward. I can help you with clinical assessment, report writing and giving you a sensible vision for the future in the management of your or your child's injury or further care. "
After graduating from St George's Hospital Medical School in London, Yaser undertook training in some of the world's best limb reconstruction and children's units including: St. Peter's Hospital, Chertsey, Surrey, UK; The Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre, Oxford, UK; Royal Berkshire Hospital, Reading, UK; St. Mary's Hospital Major Trauma Centre, Paddington, London, UK; The Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, London, UK; The Children's Hospital at Westmead, Sydney, Australia and the Royal Children's Hospital in Melbourne, Australia. After a stint at a major london teaching hospital, he now holds an internationally recognised NHS post at one of the world's best specialist centres. As a consultant he continues to visit and collaborate with some of the most amazing centres in the world including the Walk-A-Mile clinic in Pretoria, South Africa. He currently holds the British Limb Reconstruction Travelling Fellowship Award to visit other centres of excellence around the UK.
Whilst doing all this Yaser also gained an MSc (Masters Degree) in Orthopaedic Engineering. He continues to be involved in research and medical education. He is actively engaged in developing new systems in 3 dimensional deformity correction, in order to simplify severe deformity correction, reducing the need for repeated operations or for lengthy treatments. Yaser runs courses in paediatric orthopaedic education and preparation for the final surgical exams for future surgeons, as well as actively training the next generation of expert surgeons through fellowship programmes in the public sector. He maintains links with his Alma Mater, his training programme home at Imperial College, London as well as forging new links with his new friends at the Institute of Child Health at University College, London.
No matter where in the world you are based, or how complex the bony injury or deformity, Yaser is always interested to hear from you. To make an appointment please contact above or visit us at www.deformityclinic.com
