Mr Chauhan has been a consultant in trauma and orthopaedic surgery since 2002 with a focus on trauma, arthroscopic and joint replacement work mainly around the lower limb. He graduated from Dundee University & lectured in Sheffield University in Anatomy and Physiology. After completing basic surgical training there, Orthopaedic training commenced in Leeds followed by a fellowship at the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital in Birmingham. Arthroscopy and cartilage research was undertaken at Smith and Nephew’s Research Facility in York and University College London helped to validate the early imaging of cartilage and establish an arthroscopic service in Southend-on-Sea where he was appointed as a Consultant. During the time there he has developed minimally invasive approach to anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction making it possible to use a novel approach to hamstring ligament harvesting. Research interests included developing methods of treatment for cartilage damage. Mr. Chauhan is described as a caring individual with his approach to patients and their needs using great attention to detail. These are qualities that keep patients giving the highest recommendation and are also seen in the approach to individualised teaching of Foundation, Core and Speciality Trainees as well as General Practitioner colleagues.
Had consultations a the Chartwell & arthroscopy at Springfield. The follow up consulation was not with Mr Chauhan but an ex physiotherapist who couldn't even find my x-rays so had to be referred to another consultant who contradicted my consultants analysis (which concurred with my continuing pain symptons). Pain is no better post arthroscopy & my new consultant has been brushing me off with physio. I've heard it is because he doesn't favour doing knee replacements on the NHS !!!
Mr Chauhan explained the procedure clearly and answered my questions patiently and with great humour. I have been impressed by the speed of my assessment and tests arranged and by the way in which I have been treated, both in terms of waiting times and with courtesy.
