Updated March 2023
The expert medical negligence team led by Christian Beadell and Francesca Paul at Fletchers is acting on behalf of a group of former patients who allege that following shoulder surgery performed by the orthopaedic surgeon, Mian Munawar Shah, at Spire Healthcare’s Spire Little Aston facility and Walsall Manor Hospital in the West Midlands, they have had serious medical complications.
If you or a loved one has experienced similar issues, please speak to our team for a free, no-obligation consultation today.
Who is Mian Munawar Shah?
Mr Shah performed surgery between 2010 and 2020 at Spire Healthcare’s Spire Little Aston facility and Walsall Manor Hospital. The Walsall Healthcare Trust referred him to the Royal College of Surgeons to carry out an independent review following which it suspended him from practice and elected to recall up to 600 former patients for further evaluation.
Mr Shah had already been subject to an interim order which prevents him from carrying out latarjet procedures (which help stabilise the shoulder) or shoulder joint replacements without supervision. Those temporary restrictions were made following an interim hearing on June 24, 2021 and are still in force.
It is understood that Mr Shah has not practiced out of Spire Little Aston since 2020.
If you or a loved one have been affected by the actions of Mr. Shah, it is important to understand your rights and options.”
How do I know if I am affected?
If you or a loved one have had an operation at either Spire Healthcare’s Spire Little Aston facility or Walsall Manor Hospital and you suspect it was unnecessary, if it did not make your condition any better or even made it worse and caused you more pain and discomfort, please get in touch with our expert team as soon as possible for a free no-obligation consultation.
You can contact the helpline set up by the Walsall Healthcare NHS Trust at 01922 604631 or email firstname.lastname@example.org – they should be able to give you more information on who performed the surgery.
