I graduated in Medicine from St. Johns College in India and went on to complete my higher specialist training in Trauma and Orthopedics in 1999 and completed my Masters in Orthopedics in 2000; both of these were achieved whilst in India. I practiced as an Orthopaedic surgeon with primarily a lower limb and trauma practice in India for three years before coming over to the UK.
Since living in the UK, I have undertaken further specialist training in Trauma and Orthopedics in the Northwest and Southeast of England. In 2010, I completed specialist training and joined as a locum consultant in trauma and orthopedics at East Surrey Hospital.
I specialise in hip and knee replacements, knee arthroscopy and lower limb trauma. My philosophy is to provide a personal and tailor-made service for each and every patient while ensuring evidence based practice.
