 Hemant has pursued a career in translational research in Orthopaedics and previously worked in Oxford as an academic clinician with particular interest in hip and knee arthroplasty. He completed his DPhil in knee kinematics and was first to describe the problems associated with metal-on-metal hips (pseudotumours). Hemant's contributions in the fields of arthroplasty, enhanced peri-operative recovery, teaching and training medics and paramedics are well recognised. He has also made significant contribution towards teaching and capacity building in the low / middle income countries of Asia and Africa. He has published more than 200 scientific articles and book chapters.  

Hemant also holds the title of Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery with University of Oxford. He collaborates with various colleagues both nationally as well as internationally and is a member of National Joint registry (NJR) subcommittees.

Hemant is keen to expand research in the fields of translational and basic science research in musculoskeletal sciences, surrogate measures including kinematics and RSA, biomedical engineering, international health with particular reference to MSK issues in the low and middle income countries and patient outcome measures. He welcomes collaborations with colleagues in the University of Leeds.
