Highly Experienced

I am an experienced Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon with 23 years of experience working as an NHS doctor and as a consultant since 2018.

Qualified Surgeon

I attained my higher surgical training in Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgery and have also done two prestigious fellowships in lower limb arthroplasty.

Hi-Tech Equipment

All my operations are carried out at first class facilities with hi-tech equipment so you can rest assured you are receiving the highest quality treatment.

Ongoing Patient Care

All my patients receive the best care possible, including consultations with myself before and after the operation and care from our healthcare team on the day.

Mr Magra is both highly professional and very approachable. After an assessment in January 2024, I was offered a hip replacement operation within 6 weeks. Now, 8 weeks on from the operation, I can hardly believe the transformation that benefits me physically and emotionally. I'm now able to walk confidently and quickly, above all without pain -- the pain that blighted my life before the operation. At this stage, I use just one walking pole as a precaution, but otherwise am building towards returning to my beloved long distance walks this summer. Mr Magra and his team have been outstanding, and a pleasure to interact with.

I cannot begin to tell you how pleased to have been given the opportunity to have such a experienced and skilful surgeon, that of Mr Merzesh Magra,I have found his total care and professional approach to me as being one of his patients, was excellent, for me being at the younger age of 55 , I have suffered with all my lower joints of the limb girdle down, with varying degrees of difficulty, discomfort and pain, in particular with the hips,after having a hip replacement with a different surgeon several years ago, I unfortunately shortly after suffered a nervous breakdown , due to many, many factors, and not all were related to the surgery itself, which left me feeling somewhat reluctant and anxious about the possibility of surgery again which was still very much needed for my second hip replacement, so naturally I was feeling and anxious and fearful of surgery coupled with again many unfortunate events and circumstances beyond my control that had recently occurred in my life,but not this time all was just so relaxed and easy , and I admit to being nervous on the day but the results were marvellous and now 7 weeks after I can say that I’m feeling that life is good and all my pain from the hip has vanished and I’m free to continue my normal routine and enjoy the things I love, thank you

I wish to say a massive 'Thank You' to Mr Merzesh Magra for his care and expertise.He undertook to do a full right knee operation on myself, even though I have a number of underlying health issues. Which complicate any procedures. My knee has improved immensely.Thanking him for his time, effort and patience.Jackie Foy

I can't speak highly enough of Mr Magra's skill. I'm in mid-recovery (7 weeks) after total hip replacement following severe osteoarthritis, and despite my age (82!) I'm absolutely delighted. Mr Magra is a charming and empathetic surgeon, who treats his patients with the utmost care and professionalism. I'm particularly impressed with his use of very accurate X-rays to pre-plan his operations, which has certainly paid off in my case. After nearly two years of pain, eventually almost unable to climb or descend stairs, I'm rediscovering the delights of walking freely, easily and with pleasure. Heartfelt thanks!

I consider myself very fortunate to have been under the care of Mr Magra for two knee replacement operations. Recovery from my recent left knee replacement operation on 29th November 2022 has been amazing. Within a couple of weeks I was comfortably managing to walk unaided. Seven weeks later and I can walk for some distance without any pain. The level of care and expertise I experienced was exceptional. Mr Magra and following support from staff ensured I gained a positive and speedy recovery.

I have been in the care of Mr Magra now for a year and he has been amazing. Ive had 2 hip replacements - one in April and the other in November - the first was great the second more complicated but throughout Mr Magra has been very informative and caring. He's never in a rush and answers all your questions to put you at ease. .I am looking forward to returning to my active life now I am painfree and mobile due to his skill. I only accept the best which is why I chose Mr Magra as he is excellent and would highly recommend him ,

In June this year my left hip was replaced by Mr Magra at Lancaster. It was very successful and I was soon up walking again and pain free and the very neat scar healed quickly. I found him to be very professional and caring as were all the staff at the hospital and I would have no hesitation in recommending him and the hospital or using them again if I ever need my other hip replacing

I was suffering a lot of debilitating pain before I had a total hip replacement. The pain was gone after the operation and now, after ten weeks I am comfortable to walk for long periods and have resumed many activities, including cycling.Mr Magra has from my initial consultation and all stages onwards been a excellent communicator and the confidence he has given me and caring personality has made this procedure a very positive experience for me .LAURENCE DAVNALL

I found Mr Magra to be very personable and approachable and his professionalism right from the start reassured me that my hip replacement would be a huge success. On the day of the operation he visited me to explain, again, the steps involved in the procedure. Both he and the Spire team did everything to keep me informed and reassured as much as possible. From the short Post-op recovery the pain caused by my arthritic hip was gone and now, some 10 weeks later, my home life feels like it is back on track and am enjoying the huge improvement the hip replacement has made in my day to day activities from simple dog walks to enjoying forest trail walking. Mr Magra has succeeded in making me feel like the old me.

I was in considerable pain before my knee replacement and only able to walk short distances using a walking aid. 2 weeks after my total knee replacement I was able to walk unaided and now after 6 weeks I am walking further than I have walked in over a year. It has given me a new lease of life. Mr Magra and his team have given an exceptional level of care and I am so grateful.

I cannot praise the skill,kindness and care of Mr Magra. It is almost two weeks after my hip replacement. An amazing success. I feel so happy and pain free now. I can walk upright albeit with a crutch at the moment. That is something I have been unable to do for a very long time. He explains everything so very well and is very patient if you have questions. I would definitely recommend this wonderful man. He is my hero.

I am 7 weeks and 6 days post op, for a complicated left hip replacement. Essentially I had no socket for my left hip. Mr Magra virtually reconstructed my whole upper leg. The chronic pain beforehand meant I was unable to walk much more than 100m without intense pain. Post op I have completed in excess of 2 miles with 2 crutches and 1 mile with a single crutch and I am now starting tingling confidence to lose the crutches altogether. I honestly cannot tell you how much of a difference Mr Magra and his team have made to my life.
