About Mr Thakur
I qualified from Osmania University in 1985 and underwent further orthopaedic training in India, graduating with a Masters in Orthopaedics in 1990.
In 1993 I moved to the UK and underwent specialist training in orthopaedics and trauma in the Guys and St Thomas' Rotation, which involved training in various hospitals in Kent, Surrey and Central London.
I spent a year in the fellowship programme in adult reconstruction at the Lennox Hill Hospital in New York, USA, learning specialist techniques.
In addition to my work at Benenden Hospital, I hold a substantive post as Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon, Trauma and Orthopaedics at the William Harvey Hospital, Ashford.
I trained and qualified as an instructor for the Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS) course provided by the Royal College of Surgeons of England and regularly give lectures on their training programmes. I am also committed to the teaching and training of junior doctors.
