Mr Ravi Ray is a dynamic, young surgeon who trained in London and the South-East of England. Having worked as a consultant in Southampton, he brought his trauma experience to Basildon & Thurrock University Hospitals, starting there in April 2015 and offers a thorough upper limb service in close partnership with Mr Timothy Peckham (Shoulder & Elbow), Miss Rupi Grewal (Hand & Wrist) and Mr Robert Wakeman (Hand & Wrist).
With a keen interest in Sports Medicine, he obtained a Diploma in this field and has put it to good use, looking after amateur boxers as an accredited England Boxing Doctor and professional rugby players at the London Irish Rugby Football Club.
In addition, Mr Ravi Ray is also working towards a Masters in Clinical Education based at King’s College in London and is an enthusiastic medical educator. He takes his duty of pastoral care of junior doctors very seriously and endeavours to further address the educational needs of Healthcare Professionals from various backgrounds.
His fellowships are from Southampton University Hospitals and Guy’s & St Thomas’ Hospitals in upper limb surgery.
He uses the latest techniques in keyhole and open surgery, keeping himself updated through regular regional, national and international meetings, conferences and case discussions with colleagues.
He is highly active in national recruitment of junior doctors into Orthopaedics, regularly scrutinises his own practice through audit and has written many pieces of research, presenting some internationally.
Maintaining good working relationships with the physiotherapy team at Basildon and Thurrock University Hospitals, he is able to offer the most sensible options to address the conditions above from lifestyle changes and exercise therapy to injections and surgery, involving and educating his patients at every step.
Being approachable and kind to patients and their relatives, he continues to find that opportunities to look after patients in clinic and in theatre are a privilege that reward him immensely.

Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at Basildon and Thurrock University Hospital
I have researched and published on cost effective traction for shoulder surgery, systematic reviews on shoulder stabilisation outcomes, case reports on clavicle excisions, joint injections on patients on warfarin, and outcomes after frozen shoulder treatment.
Current research has focussed on use of technology in the form of social media to support junior doctors’ clinical and educational needs.
I enjoy spending time with my family and also play golf, cricket and tennis.
