I have been a Hip & Knee Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at Salford Royal Hospital since 2010. I perform Hip and Knee Replacement, Revision Hip and Knee Replacement, Arthroscopic (keyhole) Hip and Knee Surgery, including ACL reconstruction. I see people with any type of sports injury to arrange diagnostic tests and organise treatment and rehabilitation. I am one of few Orthopaedic Consultants in the region who has also completed their Sports Medicine Membership exams (MFSEM) with the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh. This gives me an unique insight into sporting injuries, training methods sports psychology as well as nutrition. I am a keen runner and still run in the Vets Category for Sale Harriers with a marathon PB of just over 3 hours. I have played a number of different sports at a good level including badminton and squash for my University. I am happy to see patients who have sporting ambitions at any level and are struggling to get back to their sport. You will get honest advice about what can and cannot be done. I understand how important it is for you to be able to continue to do the sport that you love so much and I will do my best to help you achieve this. I qualified in 1995 from University of Wales College of Medicine with Commendation. I did my basic Surgical Training (MRCS) in Manchester in 1998. 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 did the Bolton Knee Fellowship, Leicester Hip Fellowship and visited the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota to complete a Visiting Clinician’s Fellowship. I completed my MFSEM with The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh in 2018. Thank you for taking the time to look at my profile.
I was very happy with my two consultations with Mr Batra who has an excellent manner and took time to explain the condition of my hip(s) and listened attentively and with respect to what I had to say. I am very grateful to him.
I recently saw Mr Batra, he was very clear on my hip issue and gave me an honest assessment and told me to carry on exercising, rather than opt for immediate operation. I would recommend him for any concerns you have regarding hip, or knee concerns you have.
Mr Batra treated me as a person and really took into consideration that I needed to be able to dance. He was very thorough and didn't rush my consultations enabling us to make the right decision for me and my recovery. I would 100% recomment to a family member or friend.
Made me feel comfortable on every visit and during the operation. Listened and gave me answers to all my questions. Made me feel like I was a private patient, even though my operation was NHS, very professional.
Mr Batra explained everything in detail which I was able to understand. He is very pleasant and understanding and puts you at ease.He is very calm which helps you remain calm and take in the details of what will be happening to you.I feel he is very easy to talk to and listens to your concerns
