Professional profile

I qualified from the University of Bombay in 1992. I undertook postgraduate Orthopaedic training in a leading teaching hospital in Bombay. In the UK, I trained at St George’s Hospital, London as well as other hospitals in Surrey and West Sussex. I gained extensive training in all aspects of knee surgery while undertaking knee fellowships in Newcastle upon Tyne and Edinburgh Royal Infirmary.

I have been working as a specialist knee surgeon in Manchester since 2005. I undertake a large number of surgical procedures related to the knee in his NHS and private practice. I undertake total as well as partial knee replacements. A large part of my surgical practice involves arthroscopic (key hole) knee surgery including arthroscopic anterior cruciate (ACL) reconstruction and cartilage surgery for torn knee cartilage. I perform ligament reconstruction for multi-ligament knee injury. I offer surgery for recurrent dislocation of the knee cap.

I perform cemented total hip replacements for arthritic hips. My research interest focuses on various aspects of ACL reconstruction. I am currently undertaking a number of research projects related to ACL reconstruction. I keep myself updated with the latest developments and techniques in the field of knee surgery. I and my team of allied healthcare professionals work closely together to ensure that my patients progress smoothly through the treatment pathway and have a speedy recovery.
