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.

uses a range of modern, biologic, joint preservation treatments to treat
patients with symptomatic joints not severe enough to warrant joint replacement
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.
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.
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.
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).
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.
