Personal profile

Mr Morapudi's special interests include: osteotomy surgery for the young patients with knee arthritis, to realign the leg. He strongly believes that healthy life-style prevents most of the modern preventable diseases. He has been a consultant orthopaedic surgeon in Macclesfield performing high volume arthoplasty with consistently excellent results and feedback.

He completed his basic medical training in India at the prestigious medical institute, Christian Medical College, Vellore. Following the completion of one year rotating internship, he has worked in a rural mission hospital for a period of three years, and subsequently in a cardiac ICU.

After arriving in the UK, he trained in the field of Trauma & Orthopaedic surgery predominantly in the north-west region. Having completed my specialist exam - FRCS in Trauma & Orthopaedic Surgery, he then enhanced his skills by completing two fellowships in Melbourne. These fellowships were in the Alfred Hospital and Monash Health, over a period of 18 months in complex hip and knee arthoplasty, complex trauma, and soft-tissue reconstruction of the knee.

In addition, Mr Morapudi's research interests are: Natural remedies for patients suffering with arthritis. Clinical outcomes in patients with metal-on-metal hip replacement.
