Mr Sood is a leading Specialist Hip and Knee Surgeon who treats all Hip and Knee conditions as well as Sports injuries. He has been in Specialist Consultant Practice for 14 years and has trained internationally including in Centres of Excellence in North America. He has been recognised as a Top Doctor by his peers.
Recognised as a clear communicator, Mr Sood believes in offering patients jargon-free explanations about their conditions and about all possible treatment options, including those not involving surgery. Whilst he believes passionately in reconstructing and preserving joints and in biological treatments, he is also an expert hip and knee replacement surgeon. His referral practice deals with the most complex and challenging of cases including replacements that have failed and need to be re-done.
Mr Sood qualified at Guys Hospital in London in 1992 and trained at The Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital (RNOH) in Stanmore where he spent time as Lecturer to the Professorial Unit. He undertook higher training as a visiting Senior Clinical Fellow in Hip and Knee Surgery in two centres of excellence in North America in 2004, where he trained under two of the best hip and knee surgeons in the world. At the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota, he worked with Dr Dan Berry and at Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto with Prof Alan Gross.
Mr Sood treats all lower limb Sports injuries in athletes and weekend warriors and also has an interest in the treatment of Tendon Pain especially Tendinopathies.
Mr Sood has performed over 1800 knee arthroscopies, approximately 2000 hip and knee replacements and over 250 revision (re-do) hip and knee replacements. He has excellent outcomes, as shown in The National Joint Registry, and a very low rate of complications.
Mr Sood has also trained in hand and forefoot surgery, and performs this regularly.
