I am a Consultant Hip, Knee & Trauma Surgeon. My NHS base is at Salford Royal Hospital and I have private patient admitting rights at The Oaklands Hospital on Lancaster Road in Salford and Spire Manchester Hospital in Whalley Range. I perform Hip Replacement, Hip Arthroscopy, Knee Replacement and Arthroscopic (keyhole) Knee Surgery including ACL Reconstruction. I also deal with unexplained hip and knee pain where there has been difficulty in making a diagnosis. I qualified in 1995 from University of Wales College of Medicine with Commendation. Originally from Lancashire, I returned to the northwest in 1996 for my basic surgical training, which I completed in 1998. From 1999, I spent three years at the Manchester Medical School conducting research into how cells behave when human bone heals after it has broken, for which I was awarded my PhD. I started higher surgical training in 2003 and passed my FRCS (Orth) exam in 2007. In 2009, I visited the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota and completed a Visiting Clinician’s Fellowship before working as a Consultant at the Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital in the Arthroplasty Unit. In 2010, I was appointed as a substantive consultant at Salford Royal Hospital.
On first meeting Mr Batra , Having had scans and x-rays, he explained the finding's and fully explained any risks that go along with surgery. He was confident, surgery would make a beneficial improvement to my knee. On the day of surgery he was extremely reassuring going through the procedure he was about to perform.After surgery Mr Batra came to explain what he had done during the operation, nothing seems to be too much trouble and makes you feel you are his only patient . On my follow up appointment once again as my father would say "he has an excellent bedside manner ". He has through this process, been very calming, confident an excellent surgeon and a thoroughly charming gentleman. No doubt as i get older my knee's will need attention again ,and this is the first person i shall turn to. Thank you Mr Batra . Garry Parsons
I highly recommend the Consultant and surgeon Mr G Batra who performed surgery of a hip replacement together with an unexpected bone graft. Six weeks after surgery I felt as good as new, with no pain. His technique appears to be no stiches or clips for closing the wound sparing any discomfort two weeks post surgery. I was also fortunate to have Mr Batra repair a broken ankle a year previous together with a further required prodedure and have found him absolutely charming on each occasion despite his busy schedule.
Many thanks for your kind review. I really appreciate it.
Any person who requires treatment of the knees I cannot speak highly enough of my experience with mr. Batra. Not only a fantastic surgeon who explains every detail until you fully understand it, he is also a fantastic and genuine person. I have never had surgery before now and was quite nervous about my 1st time. However, had I known then what I know now I couldn't have been more wrong. I felt calm and very confident that the treatment I was about to receive was going to be successful and I was right. My knee feels like new and I cannot be more pleased with the result. I'm an avid sportsman and within 4 weeks of treatment I can now start to plan some events this year. Should I ever require any further treatment on my knees or hips I know where I will be going. Do not hesitate to be referred to mr. Batra. A 1st class experience
I had a consultation with Mr Batra on Monday 25th January Naturally as a patient you are nervouse, but from the start Mr Batra made me feel at ease and was very easy to talk to. He had the time and patience to listen and answer any questions, he also explained about the operation in a manner I understood Its not often you get a doctor who is so understanding and I have every faith in Mr Batra and look forward to meeting him again Thank you Mr Batra
From our very first meeting I felt at total ease. He was so specific explaining what to expect and what will happen. As soon as I signed the consent form I knew I was in good hands. Since my total hip replacement its been nothing but positivity. In fact I can't wait to have my other hip relaced. Dr Batra has been very helpful throughout .
