Professional profile

I graduated in medicine from Madras, India in 1991 and then did a masters programme in orthopaedic surgery in Calcutta. There I was awarded the Presidents Gold medal by the West Bengal Orthopaedic Association.

Following that, I did my higher surgical training in the UK on the Wessex rotation. During this period I trained extensively in knee surgery, lower limb arthoplasty and foot and ankle surgery. I trained as a senior registrar under Mr Neil Thomas, the then President of BASK and subsequently did a 16 month fellowship in knee surgery at Royal Bournemouth Hospital. My fellowship period involved a high volume of soft tissue knee work, total knee, uni-compartmental knee and revision knee arthroplasty.

I have special interests in meniscal repair, cartilage salvage surgery, knee ligament reconstruction, achieving high flexion in knee arthroplasty and management of knee osteoarthritis in young patients as well as minimal invasive surgery and accelerated rehabilitation.
