I have more than 15 years of experience of working in Trauma and Orthopaedics after MS (ortho) at JIPMER, which is a premier institute in India.  I worked at the registrar level in some of the best institutes in the UK. These include RNOH, Stanmore (peripheral Nerve Injuries under Prof Rolfe Birch), Royal Free Hospital (University College London), Wellington Hospitals London, St Mary’s and Charing Cross Hospitals (Imperial College London) and Leicester Royal Infirmary, Leicester General Hospital, Leicester.  My thesis in MS included managing patients using Ilizarov fixator. I have worked with Taylor spatial frames in the UK and so I have a sound knowledge of ring fixators in clinical practice. I have extensive experience in doing Total Knee Replacements and knee surgery and Hip Replacements. I have done a Fellowship in Knee surgery at Wellington Hospital and Royal Free Hospital, London. Wellington Hospital is one of the leading private hospitals in the UK and Royal Free Hospital was awarded Major Trust of the Year award in 2010. I have also worked as a Senior Registrar at St Mary’s Hospital in Imperial College, London  which  is a Major Trauma Center dealing with High energy Trauma and complicated trauma cases.

My experience and competence involves elective and trauma care of the extremities with special focus in knee surgery and hip surgery including Arthroscopic surgery and Arthroplasties and ring fixators including limb lengthening and complicated trauma.
