Treatments and tests offered by Mr Raja Venkataraman at Nuffield Health
Mr R Venkataraman strongly believes that not all of us are cut out for pioneering research. He understands it involves time and dedication to produce land mark quality research. While he has done his share of it, looking at results of Navigated knee replacements vs conventional knee replacements, he wouldn’t claim it to be cutting edge research.
Having said this, he fully understands how to critically appraise a research paper or a published journal article to decide if it’s something that he would adopt to his routine clinical practice or not.
