        During my present job, my focus practice is in the field of Total Joint Replacement & Arthroscopic Surgery of Joints. I have been actively involved in the management of chronic arthritics by primary & revision joint replacements of knees, hips, elbow, finer joints & shoulder etc. I have been regularly doing all types of hip replacement (cemented, uncemented, hybrid, bipolar, surface & revision) & knee replacements (unicondylar, fixed bearing mobile bearing total condylar, revision knees). I have the credit of doing the first Customized Jigs (Preplan) total knee arthroplasty, in Northern India in May 2013. Arthroscopic surgery of knee, shoulder, elbow, & ankle joints is also my area of special interest. Incidentally, I am one of the pioneers to introduce arthroscopic shoulder surgery, in India. In Knee arthroscopy, I have been doing all variety of surgery like, meniscal excision, ligament reconstructions, patellar realignment, arthrolysis etc. I have the largest published series on Fracture neck radius in children, Irritable hips, Megaprosthesis for resistant non union of distal femur, Galeazzi variants in adults, and Acacia thorn injuries.

       I have been regularly invited to chair/moderate sessions, conduct workshops, & to give guest lectures in various national conferences of repute on various aspects of total joint replacement & arthroscopic surgery. My recent interest is in the area of Cartilage regeneration & restoration techniques like Autologus Chondrocyte Implantation etc. I have established a centre for ACI at our hospital. I was invited as a faculty member for the UK Cartilage club meeting in London in Nov 2012 (the only person from Indian subcontinent). I am pioneer in starting the personalized knee surgery plan for doing total knee arthroplasty in India using patient specific instruments. Instrumental in starting the first cartilage club in Delhi, to enhance the awareness about the cartilage science and regenerative treatments used in Orthopaedics. We have recently started using 3-D printing for complex Orthopaedic problem cases. I am running a very successful fellowship training program for Orthopaedic Surgeons. So far more than 150 foreign Orthopaedic Surgeons from Bangladesh, Nepal, Afghanistan, Africa & Arabic countries have been trained under my guidance at Indraprastha Apollo Hospital Fellowship program & I have also trained more than 200 Indian Orthopaedic Surgeons.

I did four years of specialized higher surgical training in joint replacement & arthroscopic surgery (especially of knee & hip) at various prestigious hospitals of U.K viz. Robert Jones & Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospitals, Oswestry & Royal Liverpool Children's Hospitals, UK.
