Mr K Sehat, MB ChB, FRCS (Trauma & Orthopaedics) is a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon based at the Nottingham University Hospital. His private practice is at Spire Nottingham Hospital and the Woodthorpe Hospital, Nottingham.
Mr Sehat graduated in 1996 from the University of Bristol. Specialist training in Orthopaedic Surgery was at Nottingham University Hospital, Derby Royal Infirmary and Wellington, New Zealand. He is on the General Medical Council Specialist Register, a fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of England and a member of the British Orthopaedic Association.
He is a former deputy director of surgery at Nottingham University Hospital.
He specialises in surgery for the treatment of conditions of the adult knee and hip, employing advanced technologies and techniques for the best possible outcomes for patients.
Severe arthritis of the knee is treated using computer aided surgery and ceramic coated implants for optimal accuracy and durability.
Many other conditions of the knee can be treated with keyhole surgery (Arthroscopy).
For severe hip arthritis, hip replacement surgery is performed with ceramic bearing technology for the best possible durability and techniques that minimise the possibility of complications. For example, the risk of infection in Mr Sehat's practice is less than 1 in 800.
Mr Sehat also performs surgery for hip impingement which is a cause of pain in young adults and can be treated with a hip joint preserving operation. Inflammation of tendons or bursitis can be diagnosed and treated with injections, physiotherapy and if required specific operations.
As well as standard joint replacement surgery for arthritis, Mr Sehat performs revision surgery (for renewal of troublesome or expired knee or hip replacements) and major joint replacement surgery for metastatic tumours around the hip or knee.

My elective practice is dominated by Knee and Hip Replacement surgery (TKR and THR).
The mortality data for these procedures are published by the National Joint Registry (NJR) and expressed as the 'Standardised Mortality Ratio' (SMR). The National average is SMR of 1.0. Both for TKR, and THR my patients have a SMR of 1.0 as expected.
The success of Hip Replacements are expressed in terms of revision rate. The lower the revision rate, the more successful the surgery. My most recent outcomes state:
At 1 year - Average - 0.79%, my patients - 0.26%.
At 3 years - Average 1.5%, my patients - 0.51%.
At 5 years - Average 2.24%, my patients - 0.9%.
The effectiveness of TKR is nationally measured using the improvement in Oxford Knee Score (OKS)
The data for period Oct 2015- April 2019 states a mean OKS gain nationally of 16 points and for my patients of 19 points.
