I got into Specialist Registrar Rotation in Orthopaedics based in The Royal Hospitals NHS Trust. This involves The Royal London Hospital, The Queen Elizabeth Hospital for Children, Basildon & Thurrock Hospitals and Southend General Hospital. I have gained excellent experience in trauma working in London hospital that gave me an exposure to polytrauma patients. It has got an Air Ambulance service that helps in air lifting the polytrauma patients as quickly as possible. As a trauma registrar I often called to help with primary care of severely injured patients and to deal with Orthopaedic injuries. As an ATLS trained surgeon I have gained vast experience in trauma.

I have also gained experience in elective Orthopaedics working in District General Hospitals. Joint replacement is the major part in these hospitals. I have gained huge amount of experience in primary and revision joint replacement surgery. As a registrar I am actively involved in all aspects of patient care. I supervise the training of SHO & HOs and teaching of medical students. I organise teaching programmes and participate in all departmental academic activities.

Trusted Source for Medical Tourism and Dental Tourism


Healthbase is the trusted source for global medical choices, connecting patients to leading healthcare facilities overseas. Healthbase's state-of-the-art, easy to use, information rich web-based system helps you research and arrange your medical care including necessary travel and accommodation, all at one place. We arrange first class services for patients at major internationally accredited hospitals in Singapore, Thailand, India, Mexico, Panama, Turkey, Costa Rica, Hungary and expanding to Argentina, Brazil and Malaysia. The cost of surgical care at our ever growing network of affiliated institutions is typically a fraction of the cost of care in the U.S. with equal or superior outcomes.
Healthbase's Dental Tourism provides a wide range of dental procedures through its partner dental offices and hospitals network in Mexico, Panama, Thailand, Singapore and India.
Over two hundred medical, dental and cosmetic procedures are available in various categories: Orthopedic procedures such as hip replacement, Birmingham hip resurfacing, artificial knee replacement, knee surgery, cosmetic procedures such as breast augmentation, face lift, rhinoplasty (nose surgery), liposuction, dental procedures such as bridges, implants, crowns, and procedures in categories such as cardiac, vascular, spinal, obesity, eye, LASIK, urology, general surgery, plastic surgery, laparoscopic surgery, weight-loss surgery, wellness and much more. The savings are up to 80% from typical USA prices.

Medical Tourism is the act of traveling abroad to receive medical, dental and cosmetic care. Medical Tourism is also called as Medical Travel, Health Tourism, Health Travel and Medical Value Travel. Significantly lower costs for best practice care is usually the primary motivation although some medical tourists go abroad for immediate availability of procedures and unavailable treatments. Patients frequently take advantage of the opportunity to vacation and tour inexpensively in the country they are visiting.
