A Lancashire-based knee surgeon specialising in knee replacement surgery, knee cartilage transplantation, arthroscopic knee surgery and treatment of sports injuries to the knee.
Prof Videsh Raut is Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at Wrightington Hospital and Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust. He provides private knee surgery throughout Lancashire and Northwest England.
Areas covered include: Wigan, St Helens, Liverpool, Warrington, Manchester, Bolton, Chorley, Preston, Southport, Lytham Saint Annes and Blackburn.
A highly experienced knee surgeon in Lancashire and Northwest England
Prof Raut trained in Orthopaedics in Bombay, Oswestry and
Birmingham, going on to complete specialist fellowships in knee and hip surgery
at Wrightington Hospital in Wigan, Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto, and The
Mayo Clinic in the USA. Appointed Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon to
Wrightington Hospital, an internationally recognised centre of excellence, in
1996, he is at the forefront of the latest developments in knee surgery,
including computer-aided Patient Specific Knee Replacements for complex knee
conditions, and knee cartilage transplantation for younger patients.
Professor Raut performed the most number of Knee
Replacements in the past 3 years in the entire North-West of England and
Prof Raut is one of the few orthopaedic surgeons in the UK to publish his personal results for surgery in international
peer-reviewed journals. In 2007 his personal outcomes for total knee replacement
surgery were a 97.04% survivorship of the artificial joint at 9 years after
replacement. These were further updated
and published in Journal of Orthopaedics
in 2012 showing a 93.4% survivorship at 14 years with a maximum followup
of 20 years.

Knee cartilage transplantation in Lancashire
Cartilage is the strong, flexible tissue that covers
the surface of joints, enabling the bones to slide easily over one
another. Cartilage damage caused by general wear and tear is common in
older people, however direct impact to the knee or heavy falls can damage the
cartilage in younger people. Cartilage does not repair itself very easily
and damage to it can cause persistent pain and instability in the knee,
eventually leading to arthritis of the knee joint.
Older patients with cartilage damage or osteoarthritis are usually treated by
replacing the knee joint, however this is not a good solution for younger
patients, especially athletes. For these patients, Prof. Raut is now able to
offer the latest cartilage transplantation technique. Using keyhole
surgery (arthroscopy), a very small sample of healthy cartilage cells is taken
from the knee and transferred to a laboratory, where it grown in culture.
In a second operation the damaged part of the cartilage is removed and the new
cells implanted. Patients are expected to be able to resume everyday use
of the knee in three months and return fully to sporting activities within
