About Nick

Nick Kenny is a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon. He retired from the National Health Service, after nearly thirty-nine years of service, in September 2020. He now exclusively works in the Independent Sector at the Alexandra Hospital, Cheadle.

Nick has been Consulting at The Alexandra Hospital for 24 years and was Chairman of The Alexandra Hospital Medical Advisory Committee (until Dec 2019). This role allows him, in conjunction with other clinicians and the hospital management, to maintain and improve excellent clinical standards within the hospital. Mr Kenny is the immediate past Orthopaedic representative of The Alexandra Hospital Medical Advisory Committee.

His specific Orthopaedic interests are osteoarthritis of the knee and arthroscopic surgery of the knee.

It is very satisfying helping to return an athlete to their pre-injury performance following an injury or to return an individual with disabling osteoarthritis to normal function; he has a particular interest in looking after recreational athletes.

Nick is a rare breed in any profession. A skilful combination of warmth, care, experience, knowledge and attention to detail whilst at all times giving me advice that was tailored and appropriate to me. Thank you.

Nick works closely with two senior anaesthetists who place a high degree of priority on post-operative pain control.

All new referrals can be seen within two working days. Urgent referrals can usually be seen on the same day, including weekends, by special arrangement.
