About

Mr Saksena has been a Consultant Orthopaedic and Trauma Surgeon since 2009. He undertook his medical training in Scotland and graduated with honours in 1995. He underwent his initial surgical training in the UK and Australia before embarking on his specialist orthopaedic training on the prestigious Royal London Hospital Rotation. He has worked and lived in the North London area since 2002.

Joyti Saksena's clinical practice lies in hip and knee joint replacement surgery, complex primary hip replacement and revision hip and knee replacement.

He performs arthroscopic knee surgery and soft tissue knee reconstruction including anterior cruciate ligament and medial patella-femoral ligament reconstruction. He has a keen interest in joint preservation surgery of the hip and knee and undertakes procedures to try and prevent the need for joint replacement particularly in the younger patient including hip arthroscopy.

During his training he undertook 3 specialist fellowships:  

  • Hip Reconstruction under the guidance of Miss Sarah Muirhead-Allwood at the Princess Grace and King Edward VII hospitals, London.  
  • Hip and Knee arthroplasty fellowship at The Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital. Under the guidance of Mr K Tucker (past president British Hip Society)  
  • Specialist Knee fellowship at The Royal Free and Wellington Knee Unit under the guidance of Mr GSE Dowd and Mr HE Ware.

His other roles include Director of Medical Education at the Royal Free London NHS Trust, where he is responsible for the training needs of over 600 trainee doctors over 3 hospitals.

His research interest lies in improving surgical and quality of life outcomes. His aim is to provide enhanced recovery by adopting approaches that improve the whole patient journey from pre-operative assessment to post-operative rehabilitation. He has published and presented his research work in Europe and the USA.

Joyti Saksena keeps up to date by attending national and international scientific meetings. He undertook a traveling surgeon visit to the USA to visit surgeons who specialise in conservative hip and custom knee replacement techniques. He has adopted 3D computer-aided planning in to his practise and patient specific implants.

He is keen on innovation in orthopaedics and has been involved in the design and testing of a number of orthopaedic implants.

He lives in North London with his wife and two children.

Mr Saksena gave me an incredible service when I went to him with a torn meniscus. He explained everything to me in a clear manner and was very accommodating with all my many questions I had and made me feel re-assured with proceeding with an operation to repair the damaged knee. I was super impressed by the care and service I received from him before and after surgery. I would strongly recommend Mr Saksena as an excellent Orthopaedic surgeon.

Mr Saksena is one of the most nice mannered surgeon's I have met and from the moment of meeting him I felt confident for him to carry out the operation of my knee replacement. He fully explained the whole procedure to me not only the benefits that I would receive by relief in long term pain but made me aware of the short term discomforts I may have after the operation. I am now in my 8th week since the replacement which has now changed my complete lifestyle and am able to carry out functions that I have not been able to do for years. I have since been discharged by Mr Saksena and in my opinion I would fully recommend his services.

Dear Mr. Saksena,This is just to say a big 'Thank you' for the care and encouragement you have given me from my first consultation with you with regard to my left knee replacement surgery just over two weeks ago.I am especially grateful for your immediate response for my concern with regard to the wound two weeks after my discharge from hospital by arranging to see me as soon as possible reassuring me and checking the wound after arranging to have the clips off at this appointment saving me a return visit to the hospital the following day to remove the clips. I look forward to seeing you at my follow up appointment on the 8th of January 2020. May I also thank your team together with the staff at Cavell Hospital for their care and attention too. Finally, I would like to wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and best wishes for the New Year.

I recently had to undergo hip replacement surgery and was under the care of Mr Saksena. From the beginning to the end of the process, Mr Saksena was kind, professional and listened to my concerns with empathy. As a young candidate for hip surgery, I had many questions that he answered with compassion. The surgery has been life changing and I am now enjoying a pain free hip. Thank you so much.
