Felt his diagnosis was thorough and explained my options.Advised me to try the injections first but as it only eased the pain for a month and the knee was so bad advised the replacement but said if I didn’t want the op would discuss the options.I went for the replacement as it was getting more painful. The operation went well and I was off my crutches within a few weeks.with the help of physio advice I was soon walking and getting around normally in the day.The nights however I still have a lot of pain and stiffness as my knee locks in the one position.It was explained this was due to hip muscles needing to build up but it would improve.I was given an exercise to improve this. You have to be strict with the exercises and it is painful.I think it would be helpful if you could go to a group class at least once a week for encouragement so you feel your doing things right and are on the right path.The physios are great and explained everything you have to do but then you don’t go back for a month and you are unsure if your doing things right or progressing well enough.

Mr Batra has been excellent from our first meeting, he explained in plain English the most suitable and apt procedure for my hip replacement. From diagnosis to operation day he kept me informed every step of the way. I had the full hip replacement early February and am delighted with the improvement in the movement of my legs and hip. I would recommend Mr Batra to anybody that has problems with knees/hips

Last September i had a total knee replacement which has been a complete success. I am now pain free, scarring is minimal after care exceptional. This is one gentleman who listens, advises according to the individual and does not use conveyer belt consultancy. it is rare to find these qualities at every visit but i did.

Had total knee replacement on 16/12/21 with Mr Batra ,everything was explained to me in detail before the operation of what I could expect good and bad during the operation and post operation.my recovery started from the day after the op ,my progress was rapid which I believe was because of a number of factors number one being the op was performed succesfully as shown on xrays taken day after the op.the physios showing me stretching and bending exercises to perform and lastly my own grit and determination to work hard on my recovery through sometimes painful but vital exercise and walking regime,I was only using crutches for 3 days and after 6 weeks was walking normally(no limping) I am completely free of all pain now and can look forward to getting my life back, I am still doing a vigorous exercise regime after almost 9 weeks now but gaining strenth and flexibillity daily .would I reccomend Mr Batra most definitely,

After retiring from an active career I started to suffer with arthritis in my joints, causing me great pain!! I was referred to see Mr Batra, at Oaklands Hospital, who, over a period of approx 3 years, has performed total replacements to both my hips, and a knee.Initially, I was terrified of this procedure, but was amazed as to how professional the operation went ....I was treated with the utmost respect, and Mr Batra took time to explain everything to me, full details of the operation, and my aftercare....in layman terms.Mr Batra put me completely at ease, and after my first operation I had no fears whatsoever prior to the second two.Mr Batra has completely changed my life, and I am totally pain free now !!! I had taken pain killers for almost 20yrs...and I do not need any whatsoever, following my last operation.

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.

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.
