Mr Raghbir Khakha graduated from St George’s Hospital Medical School in 2006 and completed his higher surgical training in the South East London region.
Following his training, he went on to refine his skills in knee surgery with a fellowship in Basingstoke with Professor Adrian Wilson. This fellowship allowed him to develop a keen interest in all aspects of osteotomy surgery, cartilage preservation, arthroscopic ligament reconstructions, partial and total knee arthroplasty surgery. He has a particular interest in managing arthritis in younger patients.
Raghbir has published in all aspects of knee surgery and presented both nationally and internationally. He is an honorary lecturer at Winchester University and runs educational courses for higher orthopaedic surgical trainees in London.
