Mr.Ganapathi is a specialist hip and knee surgeon based in North Wales. He completed
his higher specialist training in orthopaedics in Wales and did a arthroplasty fellowship
in Cardiff. He subsequently completed an advanced lower limb fellowship in Montreal,
Canada and visited centres in Canada and U.S. before starting as a consultant orthopaedic
surgeon at Bangor, North Wales in 2008. Although he undertakes general trauma work,
his elective practice in both the NHS and the private sector is almost exclusively
related to adult hip and knee problems. He offers private surgery at Spire Yale Hospital,
During his fellowship in Canada, he also gained experience in managing hip impingement
(which is increasingly considered to be a cause of hip pain in young adults often
leading to hip arthritis at a younger age) using both arthroscopic and open surgery
and he is one of the few surgeons offering this type of surgery in Wales.
Mr. Ganapathi would also be able to offer a very recently available technique for
knee replacements using patient specific instrumentation (PSI Knee/ Signature Knee)
Complex revision surgery (of both hip and knee replacements) is also becoming an
increasing part of his practice and he employs up-to-date techniques in improving
the outcomes for these difficult problems.
Mr.Ganapathi has also been involved in a number of research projectsand he has
won various awards for his research work. He keeps himself updated on recent advances
by attending various CME sessions. He is also keen in teaching the next generation
of surgeons as well as allied health professionals.
