Mr Praveen Sarda came to the UK after completing medical school in India with a distinction in 1999, and completing a postgraduate degree in Orthopaedics with a Gold medal in 2002. On finishing higher specialist training and a fellowship at Guy's and St Thomas' Hospital, London, Mr Sarda has been working as a consultant for three years. Over the last 15 years, Mr Sarda has performed more than 6000 procedures and has wide clinical experience. His outcome measures have been consistently above average.
Mr Sarda has led numerous audit and research projects, and published more than 15 papers in high impact peer reviewed journals. He is often invited as faculty for national and international conferences and he also reviews articles for journals in addition to his clinical work.
Mr Sarda’s main interest in research has been to find ways of reducing blood loss after total joint arthroplasty. He was the lead researcher for two randomised control trials on the use of tranexamic acid in total knee and hip replacements for which his team won research prizes at national and regional level. Parveen was one of the early pioneers in topical use of tranexamic acid and also published results of a biomechanical study that showed tranexamic acid did not adversely affect articulating surfaces.
Praveen uses cutting edge technology to optimise surgical outcomes and regularly attends courses to learn new developments which he can implement in his practice if suitable.
In addition to English, Mr Sarda can fluently speak Hindi, Gujarati and passable Urdu/punjabi. His multilingual skills are very useful in interacting with the diverse population in Manchester and patients feel a lot more reassured.
