About Nick > Overview

Nick Kenny is a Consultant Orthopaedic and Trauma Surgeon at Manchester Royal Infirmary and Honorary Clinical Lecturer in Orthopaedics to The University of Manchester.

Nick has been Consulting at The Alexandra Hospital for 17 years and is the current Orthopaedic representative of The Alexandra Hospital Medical Advisory Committee. This role allows him, in conjunction with other clinicians and the hospital management, to maintain and improve excellent clinical standards within the hospital. He is the immediate past Clinical Director of The Directorate of Orthopaedics at Manchester Royal Infirmary.

His specific Orthopaedic interests are the management of upper and lower limb soft tissue injuries and fractures, osteoarthritis of the hip and knee and arthroscopic and ligament reconstructive surgery of the knee.
