CURRENT APPOINTMENT

EXPERIENCE

I have worked as a Substantive Consultant in Trauma and Orthopaedics with a special interest in Upper Limb and Hand Surgery, at the Surrey and Sussex NHS Trust, from 2005 to date.

Hand surgery is a specialised sub-division within Orthopaedic and Plastic surgery. The hand, wrist, elbow, shoulder and nerves are infinitely complex. I am widely in refereed journals and have a Research doctorate (MS) from Bombay University. I am a member of the British Society for Surgery of the Hand, Bombay Orthopaedic Society and the Indian Orthopaedic Association. I lecture locally, nationally and internationally. I hold the European Diploma of Hand Surgery awarded by the European Hand Society. In 2003-04, I worked at the Shoulder unit in Queen Alexandra Hospital, Portsmouth. In 2002-03, I worked as a Consultant in Upper limb and Hand surgery at Ashford and St Peter’s hospital, Chertsey. In 2001-02, I worked as a National Fellow in Hand Surgery in Queen’s Medical Centre, Nottingham. I am a fully qualified Orthopaedic Surgeon from India and the UK. My interest and training in Hand Surgery started in 1990 when I was an Orthopaedic Resident in Bombay. I am very highly trained in trauma management from Portsmouth, Nottingham, Belfast and Bombay, all large teaching units with a first class trauma service. I have written several papers on Shoulder, wrist and Hand disorders including scaphoid and perilunate injuries, trapeziectomy, Rheumatoid hand and frozen shoulder. I am a member of Faculty on the Advanced Trauma Life Support course, Hand Surgery Course for the FRCS Orth in Nottingham, Basic Science and Hand Surgery course in Chertsey, for several years. I also take a keen interest in training junior doctors at the Surrey and Sussex NHS Trust. As part of Continuing Medical Education, I regularly attend meetings and courses.

I have carried out regular medico legal work since Jan 2001 as Fellow in Hand Surgery, senior specialist registrar and Locum Consultant. Since Jan 2005, I have regularly written reports and attended courses to improve my report writing and court skills.
