A graduate of Imperial College London Medical School, Mr Rik Kundra completed his speciality training in trauma and orthopaedic surgery in the West Midlands deanery. During his training, he developed a specialist interest in arthroscopy, knee surgery and sports injuries. In 2009, on completion of his specialist training, he was elected to do a Fellowship in Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgery by the Royal College of Surgeons of England. He also became a full member of the UK Faculty of Sports and Exercise Medicine in 2008.
In addition to his training in the UK, he also undertook advanced clinical fellowships in both sports medicine and reconstructive knee surgery at the prestigious Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre in Toronto, Canada. During this time, he gained a lot of experience dealing with elite athletes from the NBA basketball league. In 2012, Rik was one of the sports medicine doctors for basketball at the Olympic Games in London. Rik is able to deal with all aspects of knee pathology and surgery.
His interest in teaching trainee surgeons is still one of Rik's priorities and he is currently the Training Programme Director for core orthopaedic surgical training in the West Midlands and Honorary Senior Clinical Lecturer at the University of Birmingham.
Rik is the founder member of the Midland Knee Clinic and has also been practising at Little Aston Hospital since 2011.
