Mr. Kunal Hinduja MSc, MBChB, MRCS, FRCS
Orthopaedic Hand Surgeon
Kunal is one of the leading senior orthopaedic surgeons throughout Manchester and the North West of England.
With the intricate procedures and delicate design, Kunal has a specific interest in everything to do with the human hand, specifically wrist surgery and trauma to the hand and wrist.
It’s a specialist area that Kunal is not only fascinated with but dedicated to — dedicated to finding the best treatments and the most suitable solutions to help with ALL hand and wrist conditions. Kunal has been a consultant since 2010, specialising in the discipline of upper limb surgery, all with a primary interest in hand surgery.
As well as Orthopaedic consultant at Stepping Hill Hospital, NHS Foundation Trust in Stockport, Kunal also consults privately at The Wilmslow Hospital, HCA Healthcare, and BMI The Highfield Hospital in Rochdale, North Manchester.
Kunal completed his Masters in Orthopaedic Engineering at Cardiff University (one of the most sought-after universities that specialise in the field of hand and wrist education), finishing his thesis based on wrist fractures. In particular focusing on the creation of a 2-Dimensional FE model, of distal radial fracture healing, examining the characteristics of the fracture anatomy, and relating them to the function and clinical outcome.
The research and information contained within the thesis have led to a prize-winning presentation, providing exemplar research on wrist fractures, trauma, and surgery. Kunal also hopes that this initial thesis will provide a basis for further work in the future.
Kunal regularly presents his research, thesis work, and practices at both national and international conferences speaking from his own learnings, experience, and teachings. At the cutting edge of new treatments and developments, Kunal’s work continues to be published in leading medical journals on an international scale.

Teaching and further development
Kunal is a firm believer that every day is an opportunity to learn from each other, to stay abreast of progress, and to stay at the cutting edge of new treatments offered to patients – because of this, Kunal has a keen interest in teaching at all levels.
Kunal is regularly involved in the training of Registrars and, in addition, is responsible for the organisation of hand surgery teaching for the Registrars in the North West. Currently, Kunal holds an esteemed Honorary Lecturer post at the University of Manchester, for his involvement in medical student teaching, and is the lead clinician for the Hand Surgery Teaching Module in the North West.
As a consultant, Kunal is responsible for the departmental teaching of undergraduate medical student teaching. These sessions are extremely popular with students and focus on teaching final year medical students the fundamentals of orthopaedics.
Taking this a step further, Kunal also runs revision lectures in Orthopaedics in the run-up to final exams.
When not at work, Kunal moves away from exploring the intricate condition of tennis elbow, for a game of tennis himself.
However, travelling and exploring new places with his family as well as coaching his son’s cricket team are two of the most favourite activities Kunal likes to enjoy.
