Mr Rakesh Kucheria
MBBS, FRCS, FRCS (ORTH)
I am a lower limb arthoplastic surgeon. I have been trained extensively in doing various replacements including total hip replacement, total knee replacement, unicondylar knee replacement, hip resurfacing and revision procedures. I have also started doing computer assisted surgery and navigated knee replacements which is the future.
I do over 300 joints a year both on the NHS and private sector and keep up with all the latest techniques in joint replacement.
I also have a very keen interest in treating trauma and do work at Wexham Park Hospital, where on call I treat a variety of trauma including upper limb fractures, ankle and lower limb fractures and have extensive experience from the Royal London Hospital which is one of the most recognised national trauma centres.
Spire Thames Valley 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.
