I have a wide orthopaedic practice ranging from hip and knee joint replacement surgery and revision surgery, unicompartmental knee replacement, minimally invasive surgery, young adult hip pathology and hip impingement surgery including hip arthroscopy and knee arthroscopic surgery.

I was born in Mumbai, educated at St John the Baptist High School and qualified as a doctor from the University of Mumbai in 2000. I completed basic surgical training and higher orthopaedic training in the UK. I trained as an orthopaedic registrar on the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital rotation in London. I also have a Masters in Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgery and worked at Botkin Hospital in Moscow, Russia which is one of the biggest trauma centres in Russia. I have also worked in specialised orthopaedic units like the Bone Tumour Unit in RNOH Stanmore. After attaining FRCS qualification I completed the Royal College of Surgeons approved fellowship in Adult Hip Surgery at Frimley Park Hospital.

I was appointed as a Consultant Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgeon at Frimley Park Hospital in 2015 and have a special interest in adult hip and knee surgery.

I have received prizes at orthopaedic meetings and published my work extensively in highly reputed peer reviewed orthopaedic journals. I have presented at numerous national and international meetings and continue my interest in research and training.

I am also involved in teaching and examining orthopaedic trainees, sit on the ARCP panel to assess their annual clinical progress and am faculty member of FRCS Orth courses in London. I am a member of the British Orthopaedic Association and am now a member of British Hip Society (BHS) and British Indian Orthopaedic Society (BIOS).
