Yaser Jabbar is an expert orthopaedic surgeon at Great Ormond Street Hospital, London, UK, one of the world’s leading teaching hospitals for complex care.
“My international training in limb correction means you will always get the most advanced perspective on the treatment of your problem. I always focus on your goals and what can get you back to your desired function, with the least number of operations, in the simplest way.
I was one of the first surgeons in the world to use magnetic limb lengthening nails in my training in Australia, and was the first to bring this technique to a major London teaching hospital within the last few years.”

With world class experience and a background of specialist advanced training in treating adults and children with injuries and deformities since 2007, Yaser is uniquely placed to be able to treat patients of all ages.
For patients with longstanding problems, many of the bone and joint problems people experience in adulthood often have their origins in childhood. Therefore a holistic understanding of what you went through as a child and how it is affecting you now can transform the discussion around what you are experiencing and how to make you better quickly, and for the long term.
After graduating from St George's Hospital Medical School in London in 2004, Yaser undertook training in some of the world's best limb reconstruction and children's units including:
Royal Children's Hospital in Melbourne, Australia
The Children's Hospital at Westmead, Sydney, Australia
The Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, London, UK
St. Mary's Hospital Major Trauma Centre, Paddington, London, UK
Royal Berkshire Hospital, Reading, UK
The Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre, Oxford, UK
St. Peter's Hospital, Chertsey, Surrey, UK
After a stint as a consultant at a major London teaching hospital treating adults and children with limb deformity, fractures and infection, he now holds an internationally recognised NHS post at one of the world's best specialist centres. As a consultant he continues to visit and collaborate with some of the most amazing centres in the world including the Walk-A-Mile clinic in Pretoria, South Africa. He currently holds the British Limb Reconstruction Travelling Fellowship Award to visit other centres of excellence around the UK.
Research and Education
Whilst doing all of this Yaser has written an MSc (Masters Degree) in Orthopaedic Engineering. Having published on critical areas such as limb reconstruction techniques and decision making in surgery, as well as delivering international prize winning talks on these subjects, Yaser continues to forge ahead with innovative design and research work.
He is actively engaged in developing new systems in 3 dimensional deformity correction, in order to simplify severe deformity correction, reducing the need for repeated operations or for lengthy treatments using circular frames.
Yaser runs courses in paediatric orthopaedic education, techniques for treating complex limb injury & specialist advanced techniques for allied health professionals.
As well as actively training the next generation of expert surgeons through fellowship programmes in the public sector he is an expert in preparation for the Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons, one of the world’s most prestigious and rigorous tests of clinical proficiency.
Yaser maintains links with his Alma Mater, his training programme home at Imperial College, London as well as forging new links with his new friends at the Institute of Child Health at University College, London.
