Personal Profile

Mr Gulati strives to remain a safe, competent, knowledgeable and skilled orthopaedic consultant who is respected and liked by peers, colleagues and patients. He is passionate about regular patient involvement while making important decisions about the treatment that they receive. His clinical judgments are based on years of experience, published clinical literature and latest research and are highly personalised to the needs of the individual.

Mr Gulati is a substantive Consultant in Orthopaedics and Trauma at Sandwell & West Birmingham Hospitals NHS Trust and have a vast experience of treating various orthopaedic problems in all age groups of patients; from high performance elite athletes to elderly patients with arthritis, at both national and international levels.

He has been regularly performing hip and knee replacement procedures and adult ligament reconstruction, including management of sports injuries. In addition, Mr Gulati has a very good trauma management portfolio along with a vast experience of using specialist techniques and managing multiple-injured patients. He has also been exposed to advanced techniques such as the use of endoprosthetic replacements for salvage procedures in revision arthroplasty. He specialises in treating refractory and difficult tendon problems with novel therapies such as dry needling, autologous blood injections, high volume injections and platelet rich plasma injections. He can also perform visco-supplementation injections and prolotherapy injections for other appropriate conditions.

Mr Gulati completed his basic surgical training from Cambridge, Glasgow and Preston. His specialist orthopaedic training was on the prestigious Oxford Orthopaedic Training Programme, which included training at the world famous, Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre and John Radcliffe Hospitals. He successfully passed the Fellowship of the Royal Colleges of Surgeons (FRCS) exam for Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgery while training in Leicester.

Mr Gulati pursued his fellowship at the prestigious arthroplasty unit in Nottingham, where he learnt how to manage complex hip and knee problems. He also pursued travelling fellowships at the Endoclinik in Hamburg, Lyon Orthopaedic Centre and Granggetes Clinic in Geneva, learning how to improve satisfaction levels in patients and dealing with difficult hip and knee problems. He then moved to Toronto, Canada to take up a place at the Sunnybrook Hospital, concentrating on managing sports injuries and complex trauma. This is where he developed an interest in optimising the non-operative treatment of musculoskeletal conditions. He has subsequently been able to assess and treat a variety of sport, exercise related and musculoskeletal problems.

Mr Gulati has a very strong interest in research as evidenced by my PhD from the University of Oxford. He has over five book chapters, 25 original papers in peer-reviewed journals and over 40 academic presentations at national and international conferences. He is particularly interested in implant design, biomechanics and the application of mechanical engineering principles to the field of orthopaedics. Consequently, he has established strong links with the Universities of Oxford and Leeds, which allow him to be part of several collaborative projects.

Mr Gulati has a significant interest in teaching and training. He is an ATLS Instructor and have been formally teaching students from the Universities of Oxford, Nottingham, Bristol, Toronto, Glasgow and Nottingham.
