Mr Gurudatt Sisodia is a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon specialising in knee and hip surgery. He provides expertise in reconstructive and repair surgery for sports knee injuries, in addition to modern surgical techniques for treating both early and established arthritis of the knee or hip.
Originally from Manchester, Mr Sisodia qualified from the University of Leeds in 2005 and undertook his orthopaedic training on the Yorkshire Specialist Training Rotation, which culminated in his obtaining the FRCS (Orth) from the Royal College of Surgeons of England in 2014.
Following this, his subspecialist training was acquired from highly regarded Knee Fellowships with internationally renowned knee surgeons, namely Prof Nick London in Harrogate and BOA past president, Mr Tim Wilton. Mr Sisodia further enhanced his skills by completing a prestigious international year-long Fellowship under the expert tutelage of Dr Jeff Gollish at Toronto’s Sunnybrook Hospital – a designated ‘Centre of Excellence’ and Canada’s highest volume joint replacement centre.
The breadth and depth of his training experience has provided Mr Sisodia with the competence to deal with a wide range of patient conditions in his field – from professional athletes with knee injuries to older individuals with complex degenerative conditions.
His full time NHS practice is based at the University Hospital of South Manchester, whilst privately he consults at BMI The Highfield Hospital.
As part of his routine practice, Mr Sisodia performs arthroscopic (keyhole) reconstructive surgery for ligament, cartilage and meniscal injuries of the knee. He has particular interests in the treatment of patella instability, anterior knee pain and arthritis. He regularly performs total knee and total hip replacements, and is very much a proponent of partial knee replacement surgery when appropriate – using implants that have the best long term results in the UK.
Above all else, Mr Sisodia is dedicated to patient-centred care and is driven by his commitment to providing his patients the right treatment at the right time.
Throughout his career Mr Sisodia has been involved in research and clinical audit. He completed a Medical Engineering Masters degree with distinction, helping him to garner an in-depth knowledge of the materials and biomaterials used in orthopaedic surgery, which he applies when selecting and positioning implants.
Mr Sisodia maintains a keen interest in teaching and training. Currently, he is Clinical Supervisor for junior doctors and regularly teaches senior medical students. Previously, Mr Sisodia has undertaken clinical tutor and anatomy demonstrator roles at Hull York Medical School and has also been an Examiner for specialist registrars taking regional exams, both in the UK and in Canada.
Furthermore Mr Sisodia has presented numerous research studies in journal publications as well as at national and international meetings.
