I have been a Hip & Knee Orthopaedic Surgeon Consultant 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 treat people with sports injuries. 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.
Mr Gaurav Batra was honest and kept me well informed about my forthcoming operation. He was both professional and yet down to earth and put me at ease at the appointments I attended before and after the operation. He made me feel confident and gave me sound advice throughout and I feel I have built up a relationship of trust certainly to the extent that I would strongly prefer him to carry out the same operation again as soon as possible. Thank you Mr Batra
Had one total knee replacement 1 year ago .Now going for other knee. Met with Mr Gaurav Batra on Tuesday 4th September 2018, Mr Batra did my first knee last August 2017. Did a FIRST CLASS OP, A very honest and truthful surgeon . Everything he told me and suggested a year ago was very true. My knee is perfect , Now discharged with no problems. Arranging for other knee to be done. Oaklands Hospital and Mr Batra did a wonderful job and I feel very well looked after.Mr Batra is a very well mannered Doctor and very easy to communicate with and listens to you. Got my respect always as does Oakland staff. Thank you ALL. D Hoult
I underwent a hip replacement operation..performed by Dr Batra on 1st February this year.I cannot exoress the amount of confidence I feel in him...He is such a polite man who goes to great lengths to explain and reassure you in your required procedure.He completely put me at ease before and after my operation....which is a complete success!!! I have since had my follow up appointments...and need further surgery (other hip and knee)and I must admit I have no fears whatsoever that I will have successful results.Dr Batra is a total credit to Oaklands Hospital....that employs such dedicated staff....from Reception staff...nurses and physio.I was fortunate enough to attendvthis hospital under the NHS...and I've been amazed by the standard of treatment
Mr Batra was very helpful, understanding and professional. He came to see me after the operation. The aftercare was excellent and he set my mind at rest that everything had gone as planned at my six week checkup.
The main thing about this doctor is that he gives you confidence that every thing is going to be ok. His proffesionalism is outstanding. Living with YOD i was nervous about my treatment. But i no need to have worried. This doctor was thourough without being bulshy. The surgery he performed was to the highest quality. and he kept me informed on my progress personally, not sending a junior doctor to my bedside. I have so much respect for this guy. After many months in unbelievable pain he has given me my life back. What else is there to say ! The nursing staff , the physios , and all the team have been amazing.
