I am a Consultant Hip, Knee & Trauma Surgeon. I have been a NHS Consultant since 2009. 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 Didsbury. I perform Hip Replacement, Hip Arthroscopy, Knee Replacement, ACL reconstruction and Arthroscopic (keyhole) Knee Surgery. 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. During my training, I visited the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota and completed a Visiting Clinician’s Fellowship. I completed the Bolton Knee Fellowship at the end of my training in 2009 before taking up the Leicester Hip Fellowship. In September 2009 I left Leicester and became a Locum Consultant in the Arthroplasty Unit at the Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital in Oswestry. In 2010, I was appointed as a Substantive Consultant at the prestigious Salford Royal Hospital.
I found Dr Batra to be extremely professional with a lovely, caring manner. It was my 2nd knee replacement operation and I was very anxious. He put me at ease, explained everything in great detail. I had the operation at Salford Royal Hospital this year and am pleased to say I am now pain free. I would like to thank Dr Batra very much for his care and attention and would definitely recommend him to anyone thinking of having an orthopedic procedure.
Dear Dr Batra Firstly I want to thank you for how the operation went, the care at Oaklands and especially how good my knee looks in such a short space of time! I can honestly say that this is the best I have been after any operation, even though I know this is operation was only minor and quite straightforward for yourself. The team you have and the aftercare is excellent. Thank you for your excellent work on my knee and hopefully I'll be back playing again very soon! Wishing you and your staff continuing success.
Dr Batra had to replace my hip due to a previous replacement by another Consultant at another hospital that had gone terribly wrong. I can't thank him enough for giving me back the ability to get around and being pain free. Can't praise this man enough, he is a fantastic professional surgeon! Thank you.

Mr Batra was my surgeon for two knee operations recently. He looked after me very well and helped me to get fit again. He communicated with me openly throughout consultation, the procedure itself and post operatively. I would highly recommend him.
