Mr Hanny Anwar

Consultant Spinal Surgeon, Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital

Mr Anwar was appointed to the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital (RNOH) in 2013, he is Clinical Lead for Spinal Tumours and on the board of London Cancer for Acute Oncology concerning metastatic spinal cord compression. The RNOH was the first hospital in the UK to install computer-assisted spinal navigation to its operating theatres and Mr Anwar has benefited from the experience. This has ensured that his practice encompasses the most modern, minimally invasive, effective, and safe techniques to achieve the best possible outcome for his patients.

He has a background in orthopaedic spinal surgery, but his fellowship training was in both orthopaedic spinal surgery and neurosurgical spinal surgery at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery. Mr Anwar has also developed an interest in the non-surgical management of spinal conditions such as sciatica, neck, and back pain complemented by steroid injections while maintaining a sensible approach to surgical intervention when it is appropriate to do so. If surgery is appropriate Mr Anwar puts forward the least invasive techniques possible without sacrificing the overall outcome.

Mr Anwar’s research interests are in primary spinal tumours, minimally invasive spinal metastasis treatment, and safety in spinal surgery.
