book-a-consultationI acquired my Masters degree ( MS Orth) & DNB in Orthopedic surgery from the Central institute of orthopaedics, Safdarjang hospital, New Delhi. Soon after post graduation, my interest in joint replacements lead me to the UK.  In the UK, I gained extensive training in primary and revision joint replacement. I acquired further qualifications like the FRCS and M.Ch Orth, Liverpool.
In the UK, I trained under joint replacement surgeons in Liverpool, Northwest England, Scotland and Addenbrooke’s hospital. I got a sound exposure in all aspects of knee replacements like primary knee replacement revision surgery, ACL reconstruction and Cartilage regeneration.
