Mr Gorav Datta
MD, FRCS (Tr &Orth)
I specialise in all forms of knee and hip surgery; including hip and knee replacement, soft tissue and joint preserving surgery, arthroplasty, and revision arthroplasty. In addition, I am the regional lead for pelvic and acetabular reconstruction providing a tertiary referral service for the Hampshire, Dorset and Wiltshire areas in this complex field of expertise, which is centralised at UHS. I am also the sarcoma lead at UHS, assessing patients with new primary bone and soft tissue malignancies and treating patients with secondary malignancies.
I provide innovative treatments to patients including growth factor treatments in chronic tendinopathies and osteoarthritis, and hip joint preserving surgery (hip arthroscopy and femoral head resculpting).
I am actively involved in research having completed my doctorate of medicine (MD) research degree at Imperial College London. I have numerous articles in peer reviewed journals and am actively involved in teaching of undergraduates and surgical trainees at UHS. I supervise medical students in their BMed science projects, and have recently been made trauma research lead at UHS.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Gorav Datta at Spire include:
Orthopaedics - hip and knee
Spire Southampton Hospital is only able to provide Covid-19 tests to patients undergoing surgery at our hospital. Covid-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service.
Southampton University Hospitals Trusts
I was educated at St Paul’s School in London and read medicine at University College London. I enjoy most sports and play golf, football, and cricket regularly for local teams. I live locally in Southampton with my wife and four children.
