He performs hip replacement, knee replacement, revision (redo) hip/knee replacement and knee arthroscopic (keyhole) surgeries. His approach is to provide you with state of the art, modern, evidence-based technologies in a bespoke fashion tailored to your individual needs. Excellence, compassion and integrity constitute the hallmarks of his
    practice.

    Biography

    Mr. Gulati is the lead Consultant Hip Surgeon at Homerton Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust where he specialises in treating patients who suffer from the entire spectrum of hip and knee problems. He combines state of the art, modern, evidence based proven
    technologies with a kind, compassionate, bedside manner to provide an
    exceptional patient experience.

    He treats patient with hip and knee problems across the entire spectrum ranging from sports injuries to degenerate osteoarthritis. His particular expertise include performing hip, knee and partial knee replacements alongside knee arthroscopy. He additionally
    uses a range of modern, biologic, joint preservation treatments to treat
    patients with symptomatic joints not severe enough to warrant joint replacement
    surgery.

    Mr. Gulati strives to deliver patients the best possible outcomes by employing optimally timed, evidence based treatments, tailored based physiotherapy and enhanced recovery pathways. He is fortunate to have access to some of London’s leading radiologists and
    physiotherapists who work closely with him to deliver the best possible care
    for all patient presentations. He operates at Homerton and also at The Barts
    Health Orthopaedic Centre within the NHS, and is a member of the North East
    London Revision Joint Replacement Network. He closely monitors the performance
    of all his joint replacements via the National Joint Registry and assesses the
    impact of all treatments using digital patient reported outcome measures. To
    ensure a high quality of joint replacements are maintained nationwide, Mr
    Gulati is regularly involved with monitoring and evaluating the early
    performance of new or modified implants.

    Background

    Mr. Gulati completed his entire medical school training at St.John’s College, Cambridge University. During this period he was awarded the prestigious ‘Rolleston’ prize culminating
    in a clinical internship at Harvard University, Massachusetts General Hospital,
    USA. Mr. Gulati was selected to undertake his speciality training on the highly
    competitive Imperial College North West Thames Surgical Rotation. Whilst in
    training, he took one year out of programme to complete a Higher Masters
    Research Degree at the Musculoskeletal Laboratory, Imperial College. Here he
    carried out novel, pioneering, biomechanical research using three dimensional
    state of the art gait analysis technology to evaluate various mechansims which
    may contribute to Osteoarthristis progression.

    He also spent time contributing to the development of a motion sensor which will be used to objectively monitor patient performance following Joint Replacement Surgery.
    This work was published in ‘Gait & Posture’ and presented internationally
    at the ‘Orthopaedic Research Society’ in the USA. He passed all components of
    his intercollegiate FRCS exam in 2013 at the first attempt and was subsequently
    elected as a Home Fellow to the Royal College of Surgeons.

    Fellowships

    Mr. Gulati received both Hip and Knee fellowship training at the Royal Bournemouth Hospital which has an outstanding reputation as a centre of excellence for Joint Replacement Surgery. Here he was mentored by Professors Middleton & Harvey, some of the highest volume joint replacement revision surgeons on the National Joint Registry.

    This was complemented by an overseas fellowship at the world renowned St.Michael’s Hospital in Toronto. Here he gained considerable exposure to Revision Hip & Knee Replacement Surgery under the stewardship of Professor Waddell, the former president of the Canadian Orthopaedic Association. He also utilised this time to gain invaluable
    trauma experience within this Level 1 Major Trauma Centre.

    Research

    Mr. Gulati has an extensive research background and uses this to adopt an evidence based approach to both the conservative (non-surgical) and surgical management of all patients. He has published over 30 peer reviewed publications in a range of international high impact orthopaedic journals including the Bone & Joint Journal, Hip
    International, Skeletal Radiology, Gait & Posture, Clin Orthopaedic Related
    Research, Journal of Trauma and the Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine.
    He has presented his work at both national and international forums over 30 times
    including the Orthopaedic Research Society (USA), BOA (UK), Efort (Copenhagen),
    BASK (UK) and Sicot (Dubai).

    Education

    Mr. Gulati has a strong interest in medical education, training both medical students and junior surgeons. His positive feedback for teaching and mentoring during his training
    led to the award of an Imperial College Honorary Lectureship. He was selected
    to be one of the Consultant leads for junior doctors at Homerton Hospital. He
    was also invited to regularly teach on a Consultant ISC Interview Course
    offering mentorship, encouragement and managerial advice to potential
    consultants from all medical fields.

    He has been invited to both the Imperial College and Royal Free Teaching Faculties, helping to educate and inspire the next generation of surgeons. During his time in Bournemouth, he helped validate one of the first ever knee replacement simulators. This led to him being recognised with ‘Visiting Fellow’ status at Bournemouth University.

    I was very happy with care I received from Mr Gulati treating a meniscal tear and bakers cyst. I was confident I was in good hands for the arthroscopy. He came recommended and lived up to expectations. He is also a very nice guy who explained everything clearly. He went above and beyond in ensuring my treatment was undertaken quickly, and I really appreciate that.

    Patient seen for:
    I have seen Mr. Gulati 10 months before the surgery then again on the day itself and the day after the surgery. Having already had one hip done in 2019 by another surgeon, he did not need to explain too many new points. Since then I have had a telephone appointment with him to discuss my recovery and I am hoping to see him in person in November.

    Mr Gulati has been fantastic throughout a very efficient and fast process. From the initial consultation for torn knee cartilage, where he understood completely my desire to get back doing sports as soon as possible and was super decisive, right through to the op which gave me instant relief from the pain I'd had for many weeks. Immediately I was able to walk without a limp, and within days I was back training. A really great result, am very grateful to Mr Gulati and his team.
