Hemant Govind Pandit

Professor and Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon, University of Leeds

I am Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery at University of Leeds and consultant surgeon at Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust in the UK. My clinical interest is management of patients with hip /knee arthritis and my research is aimed towards understanding the pathophysiology of osteoarthritis, optimising patient pathways and ensuring right treatment is offered to the right patient (suffering with osteoarthritis) at the right time and by the right person.

I am a NIHR senior investigator, member of various specialist societies including American Knee Society, European Knee Society and British Society for Surgery of the Knee. I lead a multi-disciplinary research team and currently my work involves pain management in patients undergoing knee replacement, use of wearable and implantable sensors, fractures around joint replacement and disease modifying treatments in patients with different types of arthritis.
