Mr. Parmar is a distinguished consultant orthopaedic surgeon specialising in upper limb (arm) surgery. With a wealth of experience in trauma, joint replacement, sports injuries, and arthroscopic (keyhole) surgery, he is highly skilled in treating a diverse range of upper limb conditions.

After graduating from the prestigious University of Manchester in 2000, Mr. Parmar underwent extensive postgraduate training in Manchester and Stoke. He further honed his skills by working in Sydney, Australia, before completing his training in the North West of England. He earned his Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons in 2010 and joined the Specialist Register in 2014, solidifying his expertise in the field.

Mr. Parmar’s dedication to his profession is evident through the multiple specialist fellowships he has been awarded. He trained at renowned units such as Wrightington, Liverpool Upper Limb, and Trauma at the Royal Liverpool Hospital, where he gained invaluable experience in complex upper limb conditions and various treatment options utilising both arthroscopic and open techniques. To enhance his skills, he has also visited centres in Europe and North America. Notably, he was awarded the British Elbow and Shoulder Society Mayo Elbow Fellowship.

Apart from being an exceptional surgeon, Mr. Parmar is a passionate educator. He is currently the Education Director for Health Education England North West (Mersey) Orthopaedic Trainees. He actively participates in international and national courses, teaching fellow professionals and sharing his knowledge. He plays a key role in organising courses for the Liverpool Upper Limb Unit and formerly led the teaching for the Shoulder & Elbow module for orthopaedic trainees in the Mersey region. Additionally, he had been an instructor for the Advanced Trauma Life Support course for over ten years, advancing to training the trainers for the same course. As an educational and clinical supervisor for junior doctors, he is committed to shaping the future of healthcare. His research interests have yielded noteworthy contributions, which he has presented both nationally and internationally. Furthermore, he serves as a trustee of The Frostick Foundation, a charity dedicated to improving patient care in Liverpool.

Mr. Parmar also holds the position of President for the North West Upper Limb Group, a notable association of surgeons and physiotherapists in the North West of England. This group regularly convenes to advance patient care in the region.

In addition to his clinical practice, Mr. Parmar maintains a medicolegal practice, writing numerous reports annually and serving as a subeditor for the OPiL Bond Solon Training course.

His commitment to giving back extends beyond his homeland, as he volunteered for a year as a consultant in Malawi. His experiences there have garnered national and international recognition, and he has been invited to present his insights on multiple occasions. He remains actively invested in supporting orthopaedics in developing countries and has contributed chapters to textbooks dedicated to treating orthopaedic injuries in austere environments. Notably, Mr. Parmar is a founding member of the Implants for Malawi fundraising group and the registered charity North West Orthopaedic Trauma Alliance for Africa.

With such a diverse range of experiences, Mr. Parmar is well-equipped to provide patient-centred care for a wide variety of upper limb conditions.
