Puneet is a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at the Upper Limb Unit at Wrightington Hospital. Since he took up the Consultant position in 2011, his work has remained focussed on disorders of the shoulder. He has substantial expertise in looking after patients with shoulder problems. His patient profile ranges from the elite athletes to weekend warriors and from common shoulder problems to complex revision reconstructions referred from other surgeons. Through this vast variety of patient presentations, his singular aim is to achieve the best possible outcome in every patient.
The focus on achieving the best possible outcome for every patient starts with a detailed clinical assessment with timely and appropriate diagnostic investigations. Such a central role of a diagnosis in medical care is encapsulated in Puneet's involvement as an Editor of the popular book "Diagnostic Clusters in Shoulder Conditions". This book has now been downloaded thousands of times by health professionals worldwide since its release in 2017.
It is well recognised that successful outcomes in medical specialities are knowledge & experience-based. Shoulder surgery is no different. From the time of joining Medicine in 1991 at one of the best Medical Colleges in India, Puneet gained further experience from working in 3 continents, 7 countries and in over 20 hospitals. The generous support of the competitively-achieved British Elbow and Shoulder Society (BESS) and the British Orthopaedic Association (BOA) fellowships allowed him to learn from the top shoulder surgeons in the world and this made a lasting impact on his approach to patient care. Such exposure inspires and enables him to deliver an extract of such knowledge and experience to his patients.
An important aspect of achieving the best possible outcomes for patients is remaining up to date by involvement in research and education. Puneet has won various academic prizes and distinctions during his career. Also, he is an Associate Editor for two orthopaedic journals and reviews scientific articles for many British and International journals. He also routinely contributes scientific work to national and international conferences and scientific journals. His main area of research interest is in the application of 3D printing in surgical care, movement assessment of the shoulder and measuring surgical outcomes. Recently he has supervised an exciting and pioneering study questioning the need for sling treatment after rotator cuff repairs.
Puneet is a member of the BOA, BESS, Royal College of Surgeons, European Shoulder and Elbow Society and the Watanabe Shoulder Arthroscopy Society. He is a convener for the Wrightington Shoulder Course and is the research lead for the Wrightington Master of Surgery (MCh) course. Wrightington offers the largest upper limb fellowship programme in the country and attracts the best candidates from across the world. To train such bright doctors in the final stage of their training journey undoubtedly remains one of the biggest privileges for him. Puneet regularly hosts visiting surgeons to observe surgeries from across the world. More recently his involvement with live surgery events has allowed live interaction with a much larger group of surgeons.
Outcomes from treatment and surgery can be measured objectively using standardised measures. Collection of such measurements have been routine in Puneet's medical practice for many years. Collection and analysis of such outcome measures have been key in maintaining the standards of practice and providing the best possible care. Most of all, it is well-recognised that the patients remain the best teachers for doctors, and he remains grateful to them. The active contribution from the past patients towards such routine audit of outcomes, their gracious input towards research and their valuable feedback allows him to deliver better care to the current and future patients.
