About me

Dr Raghavendra Sidaginamale is a Consultant Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgeon, with a special interest in hip and knee primary and revision arthroplasty.

After completing medical school at Jawaharlal Nehru Medical College in the South of India, he undertook postgraduate training in Orthopaedics, from the prestigious Manipal Academy of Higher Education, India. He then moved to the United Kingdom and worked at East Lancashire Hospitals, Royal Orthopaedic Hospital Birmingham and London Hospitals for basic surgical and Orthopaedic training. He completed the membership exam (MRCS) from the Royal College of Surgeons, Edinburgh.

He then undertook a 6-year structured higher surgical training programme in Trauma and Orthopaedics from one of the best deaneries in the country (North East Deanery), during which he passed the fellowship exam in Trauma and Orthopaedics (FRCS Tr& Orth) from the Royal College of Surgeons, Edinburgh.

Following this, he undertook a prestigious hip and knee replacement fellowship for 12 months from Auckland, New Zealand where he gained excellent experience in complex primary hip and knee replacement, periprosthetic fracture (fractures around hip or knee replacements) fixation, revision (re-do) hip and knee replacement and also, with the use of technological advances such as artificial intelligence, computer navigation and robotic-assisted arthroplasty in aiding the management of hip and knee patients.

Dr Sidaginamale has a very sound research background and has dedicated years to pursuing a PhD degree in Bioengineering from Newcastle University. He was awarded a Doctorate degree for his work on ‘hip replacements’. Here, he worked closely with national and international experts in the field of arthroplasty; surgeons, bioengineers, histopathologists, radiologists and the implant industry. Through his research work, he has had numerous national and international presentations and publications in high-impact journals. The outcome of the research has had a global impact on the management of metal-on-metal hip replacement patients. He continues to be involved in conducting and supervising high-quality research, including hip and knee implant analysis.

Dr Sidaginamale works as a full-time consultant at the University Hospital of North Tees and Hartlepool NHS Foundation Trust, where he undertakes one in six weeks acute trauma on call, for treating general Orthopaedic trauma patients, one full day of elective hip and knee outpatients and one full day of elective hip and knee operating. He also is the Clinical Audit Lead and Research and Development Lead for Orthopaedics at the NHS Trust. He is actively involved in promoting local, regional, national and NICE audits and also quality improvement projects that are aimed at improving safe and effective patient care.

He is also a keen mentor for junior and senior Orthopaedic trainees, offering professional support, guidance, and help to shape their careers.
