Mr Tarun Taneja

Honorary Clinical Senior Lecturer

I am a fellowship trained Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon with a special interest in Knee surgery and trauma. I trained on the Percival Potts programme, based at the Royal London Hospital. I am on the GMC Specialist Register for Trauma & Orthopaedics and post CCT, completed three knee fellowships, which focussed on Sports injuries, as well as arthroplasty. I was awarded the British Orthopaedic Sports Trauma & Arthroscopy Association (BOSTAA) fellowship. In 2017, I was awarded the Sports Medicine Diploma by the International Olympic Committee at the IOC headquarters at Lausanne, Switzerland. In 2019. I was elected an International member of the Arthroscopy Association of North America and have been awarded Master of Surgery (MCh -Trauma & Orthopaedics) by the University of Edinburgh. 

I have a special interest in treating Knee conditions with a focus on Sports related Knee injuries, including ACL reconstruction, meniscal/ other ligament injuries. I also perform knee arthroplasty. My current NHS base is the Homerton Hospital, which was the designated hospital for the 2012 Olympics, and has a world class Sports medicine department where I work together with Sports Medicine colleagues and physiotherapists to treat athletes & sportspersons. I also have an Honorary contract with Barts Health and operate at the Barts Health Orthopaedic Centre at Newham Hospital. My trauma practice includes surgical treatment of complex fractures. I am currently the Trauma Director for the Homerton NHS Trust and am on the steering committee of the North East London & Essex Trauma Network(NELETN). I have worked for many years at the Level 1 Major Trauma Centre at The Royal London Hospital, and it is a privilege to be on the faculty, along with many colleagues I have worked with at The Royal London Hospital & Barts Health. 

I am a member of the British Association for Surgery of the Knee (BASK); The European Society of Sports Traumatology, Knee arthroscopy & Surgery (ESSKA); The Arthroscopy Association of North America (AANA); British Orthopaedic Sports Trauma & Arthroscopy Association (BOSTAA); Fellow of the European Board of Orthopaedics & Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons.

I am passionate about teaching and contributing to training the next generation of Orthopaedic Surgeons. My teaching role at QMUL fits in well with my interest in education. It also helps me keep in touch with the latest evidence-based care, which benefits my patients.
