He was recently featured on Channel 5’s ‘Operation Live’ to perform Spine Straightening Scoliosis surgery live for the first time ever in the world, on live national television.

    He is dually certified in Orthopaedic and Neurosurgery Spine. He completed the prestigious AO North America Advanced Spine fellowship from Krembil Neurosciences Centre and Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, Canada under world renowned spinal surgeons Prof Fehlings and Dr Stephen Lewis.

    He has been awarded a doctorate degree in the field of spinal surgery for research work undertaken at Sir Peter Mansfield (Nobel Prize winner) Centre by the University of Nottingham. He has the rare distinction of being the youngest winner of the ISSLS(Volvo) prize for the best spinal research work in the world in 2004 and 2009. He is also the recepient of the Spine Society Of Australia award for best international research work in 2009 and the Britspine Award in 2004. He is a Honorary Professor of Orthopaedic and spine surgery in Chirayu Medical College, Bhopal University, India and also works as Honorary Professor in Bach Mai University Hospital, Hanoi, Vietnam which is the largest multispeciality teaching hospital in Vietnam.

    He has the unique distinction of being one of the few spinal surgeons in UK to be awarded a National Institute of Health Sciences Research (NIHR) Grant and is the chief investigator of ‘PRESTO’ a multicentre national trial on Thoraco-Lumbar Spine fractures. He has several publications in international peer reviewed journals.

    He has operated in several Asian countries, doing charity work and introducing new technologies to countries such as Vietnam, Nepal, India and South East Asia. He is an invited guest speaker in several national and international meetings and also conducts courses to train junior consultants across the world.

    Although he is very conservative and analytical in his approach, if surgery is required he specialises in Minimal Access and Keyhole surgery which facilitates early recovery and return to normality. He has extensive expertise in all forms of adult and paediatric spinal deformity including osteotomies, complex spinal reconstructions and tumour surgery. Professor Ranganathan believes in a multi-disciplinary team approach and he set up London Spine Care to amalgamate a group of well reputed surgeons, physiotherapists, osteopaths and pain specialists to provide a holistic approach to all spinal pathologies.

    He enjoys fitness activities and is a keen runner, ex- national level tennis player and a mountaineer.
