Kartik is a Clinical Research Fellow and PhD candidate working at the MSk Lab and the Biomechanics Research Group

He obtained his undergraduate medical degree from Guy's, King's and St Thomas' Medical School, and a BSc. in Surgery and Anaesthesia. His research investigated the 3D morphology of femoroacetabular impingement. Kartik was an Academic Foundation Doctor at the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre, at the University of Oxford, where he worked on developing an arthroscopic simulation programme for surgical training. He was then appointed as an NIHR Academic Clinical Fellow in Orthopaedics at Imperial College London, prior to his current role.   

Research interests

Kartik's research interests, under the supervision of Professor Justin CobbDr Jonathan Jeffers, and Dr Edouard Auvinet are:

  • Hip biomechanics and the role of the hip capsule before and after arthroplasty
  • The measurement of implant migration
  • 3D surgical planning and patient specific instrumentation for lower limb arthroplasty
  • The implementation of virtual and augmented reality in orthopaedics

His research is supported by a Royal College of Surgeons of England Fellowship and the Michael Uren Foundation. 

Clinical interests

Kartik is an orthopaedic registrar on the North West London training programme, a member of the Faculty of Sports and Exercise Medicine, and Team Doctor for the London Skolars Rugby League Club. He is an honorary clinical lecturer in orthopaedics, for undergraduate studies in Surgery & Anaesthesia and a Deputy Lead for the MSc. in Surgical Innovation
