Raja Venkataraman

I'm Mr Raja Venkataraman and I’m a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon with special interest in hip and knee joint replacement (primary and revision) surgery.  

I am currently working as a substantive Orthopaedics and Trauma consultant at Derby and Burton Hospitals - NHS Foundation trust. I have 18 years of orthopaedic clinical experience, including; over five years of consultant level experience in the NHS, UK, a fellowship in lower limb joint replacement surgery from Golden Jubilee Hospital, Glasgow, UK.  I have two postgraduate orthopaedic degrees including the FRCS (Trauma & Ortho) and Masters in Orthopaedics (MS) from Christian Medical College, Vellore, India.

The best thing about being a hip and knee arthroplasty (joint replacement) surgeon, is the difference I can make to the ageing population giving them a new life when they are disabled by the affections of these weight bearing joints.  To see some one walk in, with pain and disability and walk out without pain and walking aids after successful intervention, makes life worth living as an orthopaedic surgeon. I really enjoy making that difference to my patients. I am passionate about the work I do and the impact I have on people’s lives giving them the quality and independence in life when they feel crippled with hip and knee arthritis.

I’m extremely pleased and privileged to be joining the Virgin Care Private team because of its reputation to provide high quality customer centred service in all walks of life be it vocation, recreation or health.  I’m looking forward to joining a dynamic, stable and an outstanding team in helping build this organisation and its services to improve the health and quality of life, of my patients.
