Hemant specialises in hip and knee surgery and focuses his research on patient-based studies and biomechanics in this area. Hemant’s current research involves identifying the aetiology and treatment for hip and knee arthritis and ways to improve outcome. His research includes biomechanical studies, assessment of knee kinematics, outcomes after unicompartmental knee replacement (UKR), metal-on-metal hip resurfacings, and clinical trials of various interventions for osteoarthritis. His work on adverse reaction to metal debris (also known as pseudotumour) after metal-on-metal hip resurfacing was instrumental in changing clinical practice.
Hemant is also Co-Director with Professor Chris Lavy of COOL, a multi-country programme in trauma and orthopaedics training and research in East, Central and Southern Africa. COSECSA fosters postgraduate education in surgery and provides surgical training throughout East, Central and Southern Africa. This project is funded through the Health Partnership Scheme, which is funded by the UK Department for International Development (DFID) and managed by the Tropical Health Education Trust (THET).
Hemant also has a number of other national and international collaborations, including: Dr Philip Bejon (Oxford, UK), Prof Michael Nevitt (San Francisco, USA), Prof Rajesh Malhotra (AIIMS, New Delhi, India) and Prof Kathryn Jacobsen (Virginia, USA).
