Dr Manan Vora

Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Specialist

Born and brought up in Mumbai, I have been an avid sportsman and competed at the national and state level in cricket, football, and lawn tennis.

After completing medical school and surgical residency in Orthopaedics from Mumbai, I went on to pursue my Diploma in Sports Medicine from the International Olympic Committee, Switzerland and Masters in Surgery (M.Ch Orth) from the University of Edinburgh, and Royal College of Surgeons, Edinburgh, UK. I have also completed multiple fellowships in Sports Medicine (SICOT), Sports Radiology, and Pain Medicine, as well as a Diploma in Football Medicine.

My passion for sport and desire to be a doctor led me to my profession as an Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Specialist. I have been the sports doctor at various All India Tennis Association tournaments in Mumbai. I was the venue doctor of the IFCS Climbing World Cup, 2016, Hero Intercontinental Football Cup, organised by All India Football Federation (AIFF) in 2018, and Badminton Premier League 2018-2019. Currently, I also serve as the Orthopaedic and Team Physician of RoundGlass Punjab Football Club in the I-League.

I am actively involved in research and have numerous scientific publications in national as well as international journals. I am often seen presenting my work in national conferences and have won multiple awards for case and paper presentations. I am also the editor/reviewer of multiple Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine journals across the world.

My interests lie in Interventional Orthopaedics, Regenerative, Sports and Exercise Medicine. Interventional Orthopaedics and Regenerative Medicine involves the treatment of musculoskeletal disorders and sports injuries with the help of interventional procedures using ultrasonography and fluorscopy guidance.
