About

Mr Saksena has been a Consultant Orthopaedic and Trauma Surgeon since 2009. He undertook his medical training in Scotland and graduated with honours in 1995. He underwent his initial surgical training in the UK and Australia before embarking on his specialist orthopaedic training on the prestigious Royal London Hospital Rotation. He has worked and lived in the North London area since 2002.

Joyti Saksena's clinical practice lies in hip and knee joint replacement surgery, complex primary hip replacement and revision hip and knee replacement.

He performs arthroscopic knee surgery and soft tissue knee reconstruction including anterior cruciate ligament and medial patella-femoral ligament reconstruction. He has a keen interest in joint preservation surgery of the hip and knee and undertakes procedures to try and prevent the need for joint replacement particularly in the younger patient including hip arthroscopy.

During his training he undertook 3 specialist fellowships:  

  • Hip Reconstruction under the guidance of Miss Sarah Muirhead-Allwood at the Princess Grace and King Edward VII hospitals, London.  
  • Hip and Knee arthroplasty fellowship at The Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital. Under the guidance of Mr K Tucker (past president British Hip Society)  
  • Specialist Knee fellowship at The Royal Free and Wellington Knee Unit under the guidance of Mr GSE Dowd and Mr HE Ware.

His other roles include Director of Medical Education at the Royal Free London NHS Trust, where he is responsible for the training needs of over 600 trainee doctors over 3 hospitals.

His research interest lies in improving surgical and quality of life outcomes. His aim is to provide enhanced recovery by adopting approaches that improve the whole patient journey from pre-operative assessment to post-operative rehabilitation. He has published and presented his research work in Europe and the USA.

Joyti Saksena keeps up to date by attending national and international scientific meetings. He undertook a traveling surgeon visit to the USA to visit surgeons who specialise in conservative hip and custom knee replacement techniques. He has adopted 3D computer-aided planning in to his practise and patient specific implants.

He is keen on innovation in orthopaedics and has been involved in the design and testing of a number of orthopaedic implants.

He lives in North London with his wife and two children.

As a result of Coronavirus, this consultation could only take place across the telephone. That said I could not have wished for a clearer analysis of my problem. Mr Saksena gave me very some helpful advice and guidance over the phone, all of which plus, he followed up in writing, which I received the following day. Also has a very efficient and helpful front office secretary.

Mr Joyti Saksena

Thank you for your kind comments. We feel by offering a range of options from telephone, video and face to face we can accommodate all patients requests and alleviate any anxieties.

Mr Saksena gave me an incredible service when I went to him with a torn meniscus. He explained everything to me in a clear manner and was very accommodating with all my many questions I had and made me feel re-assured with proceeding with an operation to repair the damaged knee. I was super impressed by the care and service I received from him before and after surgery. I would strongly recommend Mr Saksena as an excellent Orthopaedic surgeon.

Mr Saksena is one of the most nice mannered surgeon's I have met and from the moment of meeting him I felt confident for him to carry out the operation of my knee replacement. He fully explained the whole procedure to me not only the benefits that I would receive by relief in long term pain but made me aware of the short term discomforts I may have after the operation. I am now in my 8th week since the replacement which has now changed my complete lifestyle and am able to carry out functions that I have not been able to do for years. I have since been discharged by Mr Saksena and in my opinion I would fully recommend his services.

Dear Mr. Saksena,This is just to say a big 'Thank you' for the care and encouragement you have given me from my first consultation with you with regard to my left knee replacement surgery just over two weeks ago.I am especially grateful for your immediate response for my concern with regard to the wound two weeks after my discharge from hospital by arranging to see me as soon as possible reassuring me and checking the wound after arranging to have the clips off at this appointment saving me a return visit to the hospital the following day to remove the clips. I look forward to seeing you at my follow up appointment on the 8th of January 2020. May I also thank your team together with the staff at Cavell Hospital for their care and attention too. Finally, I would like to wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and best wishes for the New Year.

I recently had to undergo hip replacement surgery and was under the care of Mr Saksena. From the beginning to the end of the process, Mr Saksena was kind, professional and listened to my concerns with empathy. As a young candidate for hip surgery, I had many questions that he answered with compassion. The surgery has been life changing and I am now enjoying a pain free hip. Thank you so much.

I recently had a PRP injection on the recommendation of Mr Saksena to help with the bursitis and tendinitis on my hip. I had this injection some 6 weeks ago and I-have to say I have not been in as much discomfort, in fact the pain I had in my gluteus maximas has more or less gone. I still have some slight pain on what was my painful hip, but I am hopeful this will disappear in the next few weeks. Very pleased I had this procedure, and if necessary would have it again.

Mr Saksena undertook a full knee replacement for my mum, we could not have been more happy with the results and recovery. She had been suffering with arthritic knee's and Mr Saksena has really been a god send, her recovery has been much shorter than anticipated and she is literally pain free now. Next stop the other one and she is good to run a marathon.

Recently underwent total knee replacement surgery performed by the excellent Mr Saksena. Both during an earlier consultation and again prior to the procedure taking place, Mr Saksena explained fully the nature of the surgery to be performed and the aftercare. Seven weeks on I am extremely delighted at the progress made so much so that after no more than two sessions of physio I have pretty much a full range of movement. I cannot thank Mr Saksena and his team enough for everything they have done for me. I feel as though I have been given a new lease of life and hope to be back playing golf shortly!

Mr Joyti Saksena

Thank you for taking the time to leave some feedback. Timely surgery can make a huge difference to outcome. However, your dedication to your own post operative recovery and rehabilitation is just as important. I wish you every success for the future.

A hip replacement operation sounds daunting; after all, it can last up to 2 hours and recovery can take several weeks, return to full mobility after several months. My experience at the Highgate Hospital in May 2018, under the expert care of Mr Saksena was pain-free, with only three days in hospital, walking on crutches the day after the operation, and recovering at home. After discharge at 6 weeks, I returned to pain-free driving and breast-stroke swimming. From walking with a limp for a year, and feeling pain after walking no more than 300 m with a walking stick for several weeks prior to the operation, I can now walk without worry as far as I have to. At nearly 70, I am glad I had this operation which has provided me with full mobility and renewed excellent quality of life. Mr Saksena has been caring and supportive at all times.

Thank you for your kind words and taking the time to write a lovely card. Total hip replacement for fractures can pose some technical challenges. But to see you pain free, walking with no aids and driving means you have got back your independence and thus we have fulfilled our goals in less then 6 weeks. Well done to you.
