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)

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.

Recently underwent total knee replacement surgery performed by the excellent Mr Saksena. Both during an earlier consultation and again prior to the procedure taking place, Mr Saksena explained fully the nature of the surgery to be performed and the aftercare. Seven weeks on I am extremely delighted at the progress made so much so that after no more than two sessions of physio I have pretty much a full range of movement. I cannot thank Mr Saksena and his team enough for everything they have done for me. I feel as though I have been given a new lease of life and hope to be back playing golf shortly!

A hip replacement operation sounds daunting; after all, it can last up to 2 hours and recovery can take several weeks, return to full mobility after several months. My experience at the Highgate Hospital in May 2018, under the expert care of Mr Saksena was pain-free, with only three days in hospital, walking on crutches the day after the operation, and recovering at home. After discharge at 6 weeks, I returned to pain-free driving and breast-stroke swimming. From walking with a limp for a year, and feeling pain after walking no more than 300 m with a walking stick for several weeks prior to the operation, I can now walk without worry as far as I have to. At nearly 70, I am glad I had this operation which has provided me with full mobility and renewed excellent quality of life. Mr Saksena has been caring and supportive at all times.

I recently had a total knee replacement surgery to my left knee. The operation was carried out by Mr Joyti Saksena. From my initial consultation with Mr Saksena my mind was put at ease he explained the whole procedure , the aftercare / recovery etc . He answered all my questions regarding surgery etc and I felt I was going to be in good hands. On the day of the operation once again Mr Saksena made me feel totally at ease prior to procedure . After the op Mr Saksena visited me to check how i was feeling etc. He took time to explain to my wife what i’d had done and how I may be recovery wise after surgery. At every step of the way Mr Saksena has been excellent to talk with , I also used the myrecovery app for my iphone he recommends which too was a help.

Mr Joyti Saksena

Once again thank you for your kind comments. We are increasingly seeing the benefits of combing good surgical practice/technique and tailored rehabilitation with a personalised physio programme in conjunction with the my recovery app.

I had a total knee replacement with Valgus Deformity 7 weeks ago, and this gave the surgeon extra work to do, I only have good things to say about this surgery and after care with all staff involved at Chase Farm Hospital, as in my experience I have heard a lot of good and bad things about this type of surgery, Well I can only say that if anyone has concerns about this please try not to worry it is worth while as it has given me a new lease of life to what I had before, and yes the first 2 weeks are the worse, but please do try your exercises, because as they say you only get the real benefit if you are prepared to do your bit.

A Hip Op Experience....... I’m a seventy three year old man that along with other physical leisure activities enjoys a round of golf two or three times a week. Over the last two years that pleasure was marred by the constant pain experienced from an osteoarthritic hip and I could therefore only play with a cocktail of pain killers and anti-inflammatory tablets to mask the condition. Over time the pain simply increased. Enough was enough and having been recommended to Mr Joyti Saksena, I sought his help in getting back on the road to normal fitness. A couple of weeks after the initial consultation and X-ray results, Mr Saksena and his team performed a total right hip replacement. It is my opinion that Mr Saksena is a professional of the highest standard and his positive, caring and calm demeanour alleviated any concerns that I may have had regarding the procedure, aftercare and subsequent follow up. I am now so pleased to be able to say that the whole experience was significantly smoother and pain free than I had ever imagined. There was a little post-op discomfort but that never migrated to pain at any time. I was able to tackle the required mobility exercises, as an inpatient, two days ahead of schedule and subsequent discharge. Simple exercises now form part of my daily routine to full fitness. Seven weeks post op and I walked the course playing my first pain free gentle round of golf. My strength and flexibility improves weekly so the bottom line is that I’m now pain free and one very happy bunny!

Dear Mr. Saksena, You performed a partial Meniscectomy at Highgate Hospital in late April. I would like to thank you for your handiwork. The problem has been entirely resolved and I am pretty sure that is down to the procedure rather than the passage of time as the condition persisted during the prior two months. Some part of that is surely down to your skill.

Dear Dr Saksena and Team I am writing because I had two knee replacements in 2015, one in March and the other in October, both done by you and your Team. I would like to just sincerely thank you for the job you did on my knees, both of them. Before I had my knees replaced I was in constant pain, which had been the case for nearly 5 years. I was so bad that I often wondered what the use was in living! Now, nearly 2 years later, I feel I have my life back. I can now walk without pain and every single day, and I mean every single day, I walk the roads that I walked pre-operations and I remember the pain that I was in for every small distance I had to walk. Now, I walk with a smile on my face and a thrill in my heart, so very grateful for having the freedom to enjoy walking once again. I also have great fun going with the grandchildren to the park and playing with them, which before the operation was impossible as all I could do was basically sit and supervise them. So there too there is a huge change. So Dr. Saksena, you and your Team have given me my life back. I am smiling again and feel like I have a future to look forward to. I know this may sound over the top, but I want you to know that even though this is your job, you - and your whole Team - have changed my life 100% and I will forever be grateful for my new knees. May you continue to help hundreds of others. Thank you!

Having recently undergone a full left knee replacement I am 100% satisfied with everything Mr Saksena and his team at The Cavell provided. I was given plenty of advice both before and after my surgery, which was very reassuring. My recovery has been rapid with minimal pain and within 8 weeks I had full extension and 130 degree flexion back in the knee. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Mr Saksena as an orthopaedic surgeon

Once discharged, someone was always available to talk to you and an appointment was made immediately if you needed to see a nurse (which I did several times, due to a normal discharge from my wound). The entire staff were all friendly, cheerful and efficient. The scar is very neat and after 7 weeks I am walking well and just using a stick outdoors.
