    About

    Mr. Gulati is a specialist hip & knee surgeon with extensive experience in treating the whole spectrum of hip and knee problmes. His practice mainly focuses on degenerative conditions, joint replacement surgeries and sports injuries.

    He strives to deliver the highest standards of patient care by using the most up to date evidence based technologies with a kind, compassionate bedside manner. His operative practice focuses on hip, knee, partial knee replacement and arthroscopic surgery- with an additional interest in revision (re-do) surgery. His philosophy is centred around delivering the best possible surgical outcome only when all non-operative conservative measures have been exhausted. A range of modern biologic non-operative treatments are used for symptomatic joints that are not severe enough to pursue a surgical route.

    His entire medical school training was undertaken at Cambridge University. He was successful in obtaining the Rolleston prize which led to a surgical internship at Harvard University's Massachusetts General Hospital. His orthopaedic Registrar training was undertaken via the highly competitive Imperial College North West Thames Programme. He carried out novel biomechanical research during this time using three-dimensional gait analysis to look at reasons why Osteoarthritis progresses in certain individuals only,

    His research work has been published in over 30 international orthopaedic journals, such as the Bone & Joint Journal, Skeletal Radiology, Hip International, Gait & Posture, Clin Orthopaedic Related Research, and the Journal of Trauma. He was delighted to be invited to present his work at over 30 national and international conferences.

    Mr. Gulati completed fellowships at the Royal Bournemouth Hospital (which is renowned for its excellence in this area of care) and St. Michael's Hospital in Toronto (a world-leading institution). Outstanding feedback from students and colleagues for medical education resulted in him being awarded an Honorary Lectureship at Imperial College London.

    Mr Gulati was able to quickly diagnose the issue and send me for relevant investigation. He was then able to offer treatment and refer to physio at the2nd appointment. All done within fast space of time and v efficient. Perhaps a little more explanation of the mechanics of the issue and any risks / things not to do would have been helpful.

    Mr Gulati has been incredible with my knee arthroscopy. I had months and months of prolonged pain and after five minute discussing with him he identified not only exactly where the pain was but he clearly explained how to fix it. I had never had surgery and he was so reassuring and calming. I knew I was in safe hands and it could not have gone smoother.

    I arrived and the hospital and the I felt at ease, the staff were friendly and helpful. Vivek throughly examined my hip, asked lots of questions and I didn’t feel rushed, he spent time fully explaining my condition to me. I was given treatment straight away to help with the pain and a follow up appointment soon after for further treatment. My condition improved very fast after months of misery and I’m extremely grateful for the care given to me. At each visit I’ve found this hospital and staff very professional and the whole experience has very positive with a great result.

    Explanation (5/5)
    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.

    Explanation (5/5)
    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.
