Mr Rishi Chana is a consultant trauma & orthopaedic surgeon specialising in hip and knee surgery.
His specialist areas include hip joint preservation surgery and hip and knee joint replacement surgery including minimally invasive hip replacement, hip and knee revision joint replacement and uni-compartmental knee replacement surgery.
More recently, Rishi has joined a select group of elite surgeons trained in Mako Robot Assisted (Makoplasty) Surgery. This pioneering technique offers the world’s most accurate hip joint replacement, partial and full knee replacements and has proven superiority over a standard operation.
He has a particular interest in enhanced recovery surgery and rehabilitation. Another area of focus is in helping active young adults and people suffering from arthritis back to activity following sports injuries.
Rishi is passionate about joint preservation for patients who do not yet require a hip replacement but who are suffering from joint wear and tear and pain. He uses keyhole surgery (arthroscopy) which may be combined with the latest innovations including regenerative stem cell therapy using a patients own bone marrow cells or Lipogems augmented with collagen scaffolds to preserve the joint.
He qualified from the Royal Free Hospital School of Medicine and completed his postgraduate orthopaedic training in South East England. Rishi undertook specialist training for one year in hip and knee surgery, including hip and knee arthroscopy at the world-renowned Specialist Orthopaedic Group and North Sydney Orthopaedic Sports & Medicine Centre. He then specialised in complex revision reconstruction hip and knee surgery for a further year at The Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, Stanmore and completed his final fellowship in Ashford & St Peter’s Hospitals. He has an active interest in research and has published high impact articles on joint replacement outcomes and activity levels after surgery.
