Personal profile

Mr Antapur is a Consultant with a special interest in trauma and lower limb surgery. Over many years he has specialised in complex primary and revision hip and knee replacements. While complex surgery itself is important he places additional emphasis on enhanced recovery of patients following surgery.

One of his key specialisations is arthroscopic surgery of the knee. He performs a minimally invasive procedure that allows patients to return home the same day, even after a knee ligament reconstruction. He is also currently working to reduce the length of stay in hospital following joint replacements.

Mr Antapur has undertaken fellowships in Toronto, Canada and Birmingham, USA and has extensively trained in the latest techniques in trauma and joint replacement surgery.

He is well published and has made presentations in regional, national and international meetings in the UK, Bahrain and Australia.

He is passionate about cricket and loves spending time with his family.
