Computer and robotic orthopaedic surgery
Mr Adhikari carried out the first computer and robotic assisted joint replacement in the UK in October 2002, as reported by the BBC. He continues to present his research papers all around the world including the United States, Europe and the Far East.
He has been involved in the transplant of cartilage cells into the knee since 2000. He is currently one of the investigators in a pan European trial (Summit trial): 'A comparison between the performance of chondrocytes versus microfracture technique on knee symptoms'.
He is currently setting up a multicentre study to look at return to sports after ACL reconstruction.
