Professional statement

Mr Rakesh Kucheria is a highly-experienced consultant orthopaedic surgeon with a special interest in hip and knee replacements and revision surgery in the London area. Mr Kucheria is renowned for pioneering simultaneous double-knee replacement surgery and robotic assisted surgery, resulting in a quicker, safer operation and a much faster recovery time for patients. He performs more than 350 hip and knee replacements (including primary and revision surgery) each year in both his NHS and private practices, which according to the National Joint Registry places him in the top few percent of UK surgeons. Other areas of specialist interest include reconstruction after trauma, soft tissue injuries and acute back problems.

Mr Kucheria originally graduated from University of Dehli in 1990 before moving to the UK to pursue training at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, Stanmore, and the Royal London Hospital. Since 2003, Mr Kucheria has been an orthopaedic consultant at Heatherwood and Wexham Park hospitals, now part of Frimley Health NHS Foundation Trust. He has been regularly recognised by the Trust with Clinical Excellence Awards. In addition, he leads the enhanced recovery programme in both his NHS and private practices. He is now the GIRFT lead for hips and knees in the Trust.

More recently in his experience, Mr Kucheria has been performing robotic-assisted surgical procedures; he has accomplished more than 200 of these successfully. One of the robotic-assistants that has revolutionised the way he works is the Mako® Robotic arm, which allows joint replacement surgeries to be done with more accuracy using each individual patient's unique specific diagnosis and anatomy. This results in Mr Kucheria's patients having a faster and less painful recovery than conventional techniques.

Mr Kucheria makes sure to keep up with the latest techniques and procedures in his field. As a result, he uses his expertise to train junior surgeons and GPs. His involvement is another representation of his patient care, as Mr Kucheria puts his patients first and foremost. He is passionate to ensure each child and adult patient has individualised care and attention.
