Mr. Rishi ChanaHip & Knee Surgeon

Joint Preservation & Reconstruction Specialist
Mr. Rishi Chana

I am a dedicated hip and knee specialist with expertise relating to all adult hip conditions.

My two main areas of focus are in Hip Joint Preservation Surgery and Joint Replacement Surgery of the Hip and Knee.

As a fellowship trained Hip Arthroscopy surgeon, it is always a pleasure to see any patient who is struggling with conservative active therapy.

Hip Joint Preservation (keyhole or arthroscopy) is a philosophy of doing our utmost to keep your natural hip joint in the best health and function, for as long as we can. My goal is to bridge the gap for those patients with early wear and tear hip problems that are not ready for a hip replacement. With a biological reconstruction rather than metal implants, we can help you to achieve your goals whilst still allowing you to keep your natural hip joint. Our multidisciplinary super team will ensure you have the best care and results possible using the latest innovations including regenerative stem cell therapy using your own bone marrow cells or lipogems augmented with collagen scaffolds to preserve your joint. This is called AMIC / BMAC / Lipogems.

Another area of specialist interest is in sports injuries for young active adults. I have successfully treated patients and returned them to their targeted athletic / sporting goals. These include conditions such as hip cam, pincer or subspinous impingement, all forms of femoro-acetabular impingement. If left, these also result in labral tears, cartilage damage and focal articular cartilage defects that be repaired or reconstructed, if found and treated in time.

Areas of expertise also extend to delivering pain relief from trochanteric bursitis, hip & gluteal core buttock pain, ITB syndrome and lower leg pain as these conditions often occur in conjunction with sports injuries in active patients and people suffering from arthritis.

A key factor in advising patients about their hip is knowing when we can save the natural joint or when to consider a Total Hip Replacement.

I have completed two world renowned hip replacement fellowship programs in Sydney and the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, Stanmore to provide an exceptional high-quality joint replacement service with enhanced rehabilitation and have a cohort of very happy customers. Please see my patient reviews on

I also offer a personalised custom built bespoke surgical plan using the latest but safe and well proven technologies including navigation and robot assisted surgery joint replacements to ensure the highest degree of accuracy and detail in this digital era.

The Mako Robot Assisted Surgery (Makoplasty Surgery) offers the world’s most accurate hip joint replacement, partial and full knee replacements. I am honoured to be part of a select group of elite surgeons trained in this pioneering technique that has proven superiority over a standard operation, exclusively at the Princess Margaret Hospital, Windsor.

When not at work, I enjoy spending time with my two kids, Ronak (10yrs) and Sohani (4yrs) and wife Nim who is a local dentist.

I’m an enthusiastic surgeon, chef and BBQ pitmaster.

Research Interests

Mr Rishi is currently studying joint preservation surgery and biological repair of hips to increase the longevity of your natural hip joint.

He also runs his own international fellowship program for higher surgical specialist teaching.

Mr Rishi has also recently published in his field of expertise, on the forefront of current implant and bearing technology as well as clinically relevant research that has improved evidence-based practise internationally. He is a keen teacher and lectures on a regular basis to orthopaedic surgeons and allied health musculoskeletal staff.
