Mr Gulati is a substantive Consultant in Orthopaedics and Trauma at Sandwell & West Birmingham Hospitals NHS Trust. He is passionate about regular patient involvement while making important decisions about the treatment that they receive. His clinical judgments are based on years of experience, published clinical literature and latest research and are highly personalised to the needs of the individual.
Mr Gulati has a vast experience of treating various orthopaedic problems in all age group patients; from high performance elite athletes to elderly patients with arthritis, at both national and international levels. He has been regularly performing hip and knee replacement procedures, adult ligament reconstruction, toe surgery and management of sports injuries. In addition, he has a very good trauma management portfolio along with a vast experience of using specialist techniques and managing multiply-injured patients. He has also been exposed to advanced techniques such as the use of endoprosthetic replacements for salvage procedures in revision arthroplasty.
Mr Gulati specialises in treating refractory and difficult tendon problems with novel therapies such as dry needling, autologous blood injections, high volume injections and platelet rich plasma injections. He can also perform visco-supplementation injections and prolotherapy injections for other appropriate conditions.
Mr Gulati completed his basic surgical training from Cambridge, Glasgow and Preston. His specialist orthopaedic training was on the prestigious Oxford Orthopaedic Training Programme which included training at the world famous, Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre and John Radcliffe Hospitals. He successfully passed the Fellowship of the Royal Colleges of Surgeons (FRCS) exam for Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgery on his first attempt while training in Leicester.
Mr Gulati pursued his fellowship at the prestigious arthroplasty unit in Nottingham under the supervision of Mr A Manktelow and Mr P James, where he learnt how to manage complex hip and knee problems. He also travelled to pursue fellowships at the Endoclinik, Hamburg and Lyon Orthopaedic Centre, learning how to improve satisfaction levels in patients and dealing with difficult problems. He then moved to Toronto, Canada to take up a place at the Sunnybrook Hospital under the supervision of Dr P Marks, Dr D Wasserstein and Dr J Abuali, concentrating on managing sports injuries and complex trauma. This is where he developed interest in optimising the non-operative treatment of musculoskeletal conditions. He has subsequently been able to assess and treat a variety of sports, exercise related and musculoskeletal problems.
Mr Gulati has a very strong interest in research is evidenced by his PhD from the University of Oxford. He wrote an original thesis on ‘pain after medial unicompartmental knee replacement’ with Prof Murray, Prof Pandit and Dr Pegg. He has written over five book chapters, 25 original papers in peer-reviewed journals and has over 50 academic presentations at national and international conferences. He is particularly interested in implant design, biomechanics and application of mechanical engineering principles to the field of orthopaedics.
Mr Gulati also has a significant interest in teaching and training. He is an ATLS Instructor and has been formally teaching students from the Universities of Oxford, Nottingham, Bristol, Toronto, Glasgow and Nottingham. He particularly enjoys preparing registrars for the FRCS (Tr. & Orth.) examination.
Outside of work, he enjoys spending time with his wife and two young daughters. He regularly participates in sports - playing badminton, squash and cricket. He is a medical volunteer for various charitable organisations, which undertake several free annual medical camps.
