Professional profile

Mr Gulati is the lead Consultant Hip Surgeon at Homerton University Hospital where he specialises exclusively in treating patients who suffer from complex hip and knee problems. He combines state of the art, modern, evidence based, proven technologies with an excellent bedside manner to achieve the best possible results for every patient under his care.

His particular expertise includes performing hip, knee and partial knee replacement surgery with a special interest in revision hip replacement. He additionally uses a range of modern, biologic joint preservation treatments to treat patients with symptomatic joints not severe enough to require joint replacement thus preserving their native joint. He has also contributed to the development of a young adult hip pathology service treating related conditions such as femoro-acetabular impingement and tendinopathies.

Mr Gulati strives to deliver patients the best possible outcomes by employing optimally timed evidence based treatments, tailored physiotherapy and enhanced recovery pathways. To achieve this, he regularly attends ‘Lower Limb Arthroplasty’ rounds at Homerton Hospital and is a member of the ‘North West Thames Imperial Revision Hip 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 scoring systems. 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 Registrar 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 mechanisms which may contribute to Osteoarthritis 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 and Mr Pavlou, 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 and surgical management of all his 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), Effort (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 has 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 is a member of the Imperial Orthopaedic Teaching Faculty and teaches on a range of courses including the annual ‘External Fixation’ and ‘Femoral Nailing’ masterclasses. 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.
