Dr. Bhatia has a vast clinical experience in Joint Replacement surgery especially Knee Replacement surgery, Revision Knee Replacement surgery, Hip Replacements and Shoulder Replacements. He is specially trained and qualified to use new joint replacement implants which provide the patient with very high flexion (bending of the knee).
The knee replacements which Dr. Bhatia uses enablers the surgery to be carried out in much younger patients due to an improvement in the materials used and the in surgical technique. As a result of this, younger patients, more active patients, as well as older patients can benefit from the advances of implants and surgical techniques practiced by Dr. Bhatia.

This includes common injuries such as torn cartilaginous and also arthroscopic anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction, arthroscopic reconstruction of the shoulder for an unstable/dislocating shoulders and arthroscopic surgery for repair of the rotator cuff (torn tendon) in the shoulder.
