Mr Gulati is the lead Consultant Hip Surgeon at Homerton University Hospital where he specialises exclusively in treating patients who suffer from complex hip and knee problems. He combines state of the art, modern, evidence based, proven technologies with an excellent bedside manner to achieve the best possible results for every patient under his care.
His particular expertise includes performing hip, knee and partial knee replacement surgery with a special interest in revision hip replacement. He additionally uses a range of modern, biologic joint preservation treatments to treat patients with symptomatic joints not severe enough to require joint replacement thus preserving their native joint. He has also contributed to the development of a young adult hip pathology service treating related conditions such as femoro-acetabular impingement and tendinopathies.
Mr Gulati strives to deliver patients the best possible outcomes by employing optimally timed evidence based treatments, tailored physiotherapy and enhanced recovery pathways.
Mr Gulati completed his entire medical school training at St.John’s College, Cambridge University. During this period he was awarded the prestigious ‘Rolleston’ prize culminating in a clinical internship at Harvard University, Massachusetts General Hospital, USA.
Mr Gulati was selected to undertake his speciality Registrar training on the highly competitive Imperial College North West Thames Surgical Rotation. Whilst in training, he took one year out of programme to complete a Higher Masters Research Degree at the Musculoskeletal Laboratory, Imperial College. Here he carried out novel, pioneering biomechanical research using three dimensional state of the art gait analysis technology to evaluate various mechanisms which may contribute to Osteoarthritis progression. He also spent time contributing to the development of a motion sensor which will be used to objectively monitor patient performance following Joint Replacement Surgery. This work was published in ‘Gait & Posture’ and presented internationally at the ‘Orthopaedic Research Society’ in the USA.
Mr Gulati received both Hip and Knee fellowship training at the Royal Bournemouth Hospital which has an outstanding reputation as a centre of excellence for Joint Replacement Surgery. Here he was mentored by Professors Middleton & Harvey and Mr Pavlou, some of the highest volume joint replacement revision surgeons on the National Joint Registry. This was complemented by an overseas fellowship at the world renowned St.Michael’s Hospital in Toronto. Here, he gained considerable exposure to Revision Hip & Knee Replacement Surgery under the stewardship of Professor Waddell, the former president of the Canadian Orthopaedic Association.
Mr Gulati has an extensive research background. He has published over 30 peer reviewed publications in a range of international high impact orthopaedic journals including the Bone & Joint Journal, Hip International, Skeletal Radiology, Gait & Posture, Clin Orthopaedic Related Research, Journal of Trauma and the Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine. He has presented his work at both national and international forums over 30 times.
Mr Gulati has a strong interest in medical education, training both medical students and junior surgeons. His positive feedback for teaching and mentoring has led to the award of an Imperial College Honorary Lectureship. He is a member of the Imperial Orthopaedic Teaching Faculty. He has helped to validate one of the first ever knee replacement simulators.
