Staff Profile

Ajay Malviya

Honorary Clinical Senior Lecturer


I am a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at Northumbria Healthcare NHS foundation trust with special interest in young adult hip pathology. I am also an Honorary Consultant at Newcastle upon Tyne NHS Foundation Trust.  

I have completed my training in the North East and have done fellowships in joint preservation surgery in Cambridge, London and Switzerland. My area of specialty is the treatment of disorders of the young adult hip and I have established a tertiary referral practice catering to this group of patients with referrals from all over the country. In my routine practice I perform hip preserving surgeries like hip arthroscopy for femoroacetabular impingement and sports injuries of the hip and periacetabular osteotomy for hip dysplasia using a minimally invasive approach. I do the largest number of joint preservation surgery (150-200) in the North East of England. I also have a wide experience of joint replacement surgery for both young and elderly patients.

Very recently I was awarded the ABC (America-Britain-Canada) fellowship by the British Orthopaedic Association that involved visits to various high profile centres in USA and Canada learning about new systems and techniques.

I am very active in research have completed a PhD in the role of hip arthroscopy in the treatment of disorders of the hip. I supervise research fellows and have enabled them to complete various degrees and projects. I am in the British Orthopaedic Association educational committee as the national lead of the UK and Ireland orthopaedic in-training examination, which is an annual assessment of orthopaedic surgeons in training. I regularly teach in national hip arthroscopy courses and mentor consultants to establish similar service in their own trust. I also am a faculty in early intervention in hip surgery and hip and knee arthroplasty courses. I have been an invited faculty in the British Hip Society meetings over the last few years.

I had been an advisor of the exam corner section of the Bone and Joint Journal (formerly JBJS Br) and am the Editorial Correspondent for Journal of Hip Preservation Surgery. I am also in the steering committee for Non Arthroplasty Hip Registry.


My research interests are -

1. Femoroacetabular impingement and Hip dysplasia - Currently Principal Investigator in Northumbria for FASHiON trial which compares hip arthroscopy and non operative treatment for FAI; HiPPO trial looking at the role of PRP from GTPS

2. Outcomes after hip preservation surgery - periacetabular osteotomy and hip arthroscopy

3. Improving outcome after hip and knee replacement - role of Anaemia screening and MSSA decolonisation

4. Enhanced recovery in hip and knee replacement
