Thompsons Solicitors is helping patients of Mian Munawar Shah claim compensation for medical negligence.


Who is Mian Munawar Shah?

Mian Munawar Shah is a West Midlands-based orthopaedic surgeon who worked for the NHS at Walsall Manor Hospital and for Spire Healthcare at Spire Little Aston between 2010 and 2020.

He has been suspended by the Walsall Healthcare Trust following multiple medical negligence claims made against him. Up to 600 of his former patients have been recalled by Walsall Manor Hospital.

Why has Mian Munawar Shah been suspended?

There have reportedly been 18 complaints made against Mr Shah connected with shoulder operations that have gone wrong. Some patients are reported to have lost the use of their arm and to live in constant pain.

Despite some of his former patients having received compensation he continued operating. But now an interim order has been issued by the Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service (MPTS), prohibiting the surgeon from performing Latarjet procedures (also known as open stabilisation) or shoulder joint replacements without supervision.
