Mr Divya Prakash was selected for specialist training in orthopaedics in the Birmingham region. As part of this training he undertook several placements at world famous hospitals.
Very early in his career he developed a keen interest in knee surgery and decided to specialise in this field. He took the opportunity to work with some distinguished surgeons who taught him the finer details of knee and hip surgery.
A Fellowship in knee surgery followed in Derby and Nottingham where he was able to further refine and perfect his surgical skills.
On completion of his training he joined the Royal Hospital Haslar and the Queen Alexandra Hospitals, Portsmouth, as a Consultant in 2002. Here he continued to further his interest in knee and hip surgery looking after the local population and also the military personnel, many of whom had sustained severe knee injuries. As a result he began to take special interest in the management of knee and hip problems in young adults (20 – 65 years) as he found this to be challenging, stimulating and rewarding.
He has tried to stay abreast of the latest international developments in the fields of knee and hip surgery. To this end he has visited leading orthopaedic facilities, including the Jefferson Institute, Philadelphia, and Sint Vincentius Deinze Hospital, Belgium.
He lectures internationally and his research papers are presented at national and international meetings and conferences.
