About Mr Ziali Sivardeen

Ziali Sivardeen is a Specialist Orthopaedic Surgeon. He had the honour of being the Surgeon who operated on all Olympians and ParaOlympians that required Shoulder or Elbow Surgery during the 2012 Olympic Games, in London. Due to his role, Mr Sivardeen was invited to a special reception in Buckingham Palace.

He has seen and helped manage many athletes with Knee Problems, including those linked to Premiership Football Clubs, and has treated many sports people with ACL injuries, cartilage and meniscal tears.

Mr Sivardeen has represented the prestigious Royal Colleges Of Surgeons, first as a Tutor from 2010-2014, before being appointed as one of two Regional Surgical Advisors for London.

In 2015, he organised the pan London Sports and Exercise Medicine teaching programme, and now is an Examiner for the Intercollegiate Fellowship of the Royal Colleges of Surgeons (FRCS exams) (the final exam before Surgeons become Consultants). He has been a member of the Specialist Training Committtee for Sports and Exercise Medicine Trainees in London from 2009 to 2015, so played an important part helping to develop this new speciality.

His research interests include orthopaedic shoulder and knee problems, including sports injuries in elite rugby players. He had in excess of 70 presentations accepted at prestigious national and international meetings by 2012. At the main World Shoulder and Elbow Meeting in 2010 his research was the only piece from the UK that was short-listed for the best prize and he was invited to give an educational talk at the next World Shoulder and Elbow Meeting (ISCES) held in Japan in 2013.

He is one of the few (perhaps only) Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon in the UK trained by 3 Presidents of National Orthopaedic Societies at Fellowship Level and has a passion for teaching and training. He regularly runs Sports Injury Symposia in London and has been invited around the world to deliver lectures, and master classes teaching other surgeons, consultants and practitioners.
