Multiple legal claims against Mr Raghuraman, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon

Mr Narayanasamy Raghuraman previously worked as a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at Spire Hull & East Riding Hospital, Castle Hill Hospital and the Hull Royal Infirmary.

He completed numerous hip and knee replacement operations.  Data from the National Joint Registry indicates that he performed 1205 such procedures in the period from 1st April 2015 to 31st March 2018, compared to a national average of 351 procedures in the same period.

We’ve been contacted by a considerable number of Mr Raghuraman’s former patients who are now suffering significant injury and disability after surgery performed by him.  Some of his patients are now facing further surgery to deal with these problems.  In many cases the surgeons dealing with their ongoing problems have told Mr Raghuraman’s former patients that mistakes have been made and that they should consider seeking legal advice.

What should you do if you think that you might have been affected but nobody has said anything similar to you?  Nick Gray, Head of Clinical Negligence, suggests the following:

  1. Nick Gray - Williamsons SolicitorsAre you suffering ongoing symptoms related to an earlier hip/knee operation performed by Mr Raghuraman? If so, it’s worth asking why this is the case.  The typical recovery period is around 10 weeks and significant ongoing symptoms after this time might suggest something worthy of further investigation.


  1. Should I expect to have ongoing symptoms anyway? This is not generally the case and most patients experience a significant improvement in their quality of life after a hip or knee replacement.


  1. How can I prove that my care by Mr Raghuraman was negligent? This is something that we can do for you under a No Win, No Fee agreement.  We’d obtain your medical records and ask the team of independent experts we use for an initial opinion.


  1. Is it worthwhile doing anything? This depends upon the nature and severity of your symptoms.  If you are going to suffer with ongoing pain, require further surgery and/or might not be able to live the life you wanted these are all things to take into account.


  1. Can I do anything if Mr Raghuraman has now left the country? Yes, if you received NHS treatment the hospital where he performed your surgery will be responsible for his actions.  We also have details of Mr Raghuraman’s insurer that covers him for all his private treatment.


If you think that Mr Raghuraman’s actions might have caused you additional injury, why not call us on 01482 323697 or complete the form below us and we can help answer this question.  It’s also important that you don’t feel alone because we act for many others in a similar situation.

Mr Smith a

Carey has been really good throughout the process. Always responds quickly on emails and is always on the end of the phone if I needed her. I would highly recommend this firm and Carey.

Mrs Kathleen A

Excellent relationship management, clear and concise advice including option analysis. Very happy with all aspects of the service provided and the outcomes achieved. Friendly professional service.

Mr & M

Carey Robinson acted as our Solicitor on a recent commercial purchase and she was brilliant. Carey was super efficient and we were kept up to date on every aspect of the purchase. From start to finish our "Property Auction" purchase only took 7 working days to complete. We will definitely be using Carey again and can highly recommend her 5 star service.


Friendly, fast and efficient. Sale of property went very well.


I have nothing but praise for Gordon Sewell at the Hull office. He conducted my unusual and difficult civil case with great care and understanding. Gordon also injected the right amount of sympathy for my plight without being unprofessional. I would recommend him to anyone needing a clued up civil litigation lawyer.

Richard K

very helpful and efficient. thanks to all

Mr Nick Gray was assigned my enquiry and worked with me throughout. He made himself available at all times and was always supportive to me on numerous occasions when I found myself unsure and admittedly nervous. He never let me down. I believe his advice was always good and I relied on it throughout. I think the award was the best I could have obtained and in conclusion I can honestly say that I am happy. The other contact I have had over the years was your receptionist, the face of your company. I was always greeted with a smile and the offer of a cup of coffee. On the occasions I visited your Hull office I was always made to feel important. Thank you.


Professional and courteous team. Recommend highly.

I’ve rated my experience with Williamson’s solicitors as excellent. My case was handled by Mr. Gordon Sewell. Mr. Sewell was very quick to get to work on my case, as was necessary at the time. Everything he did for me was thorough and made sure I had every chance in my case. Everything Mr Sewell did for me turned out a success and I couldn’t have been happy with the way he dealt with myself, could communicated with myself and dealt with the case in its entirety. I wouldn’t hesitate to use Williamson’s solicitors again should I require it and would recommend their services to anyone. In fact, I already have since my experience! Thanks again Gordon.

Recently used Williamsons Solicitors as part of a remortgage and some other matters. Can't fault their service at all. Carey dealt with my file and was polite, professional and informative from beginning to end. Always kept me up to speed with progress. I would highly recommend them.

Mrs Margaret W

Excellent service with a friendly face

Mr Martin a

Was very happy with the service given by Williamsons solicitors who dealt with the probate of a friends will and also the selling of her property. Especially Diane Ramsden whose help was invaluable.


Williamsons took on my case following the collapse of another Hull legal practice. Despite them having to pick up a large amount of work already completed by others, they worked tirelessly to ensure the correct outcome for me. I cannot recommend this company highly enough, they go above and beyond the norm to make sure their clients are treated fairly.


We used Williamsons for selling and buying a property, we found Jane Cousins and her assistant Sam Pollard to be pleasant, professional and efficient. Lisa on reception downstairs was particularly helpful and polite. Thank you to you all.

Mr J G

Avery good service with very professional and knowledgeable staff.


Brilliant, thank you for helping me make this process easier.

Mr G B

I would recommend Williamson’s to any potential client. From the onset I was supported throughout a very difficult conveyance and my solicitor was very professional at all times. It is advisable to engage the services of a local company and not one advised by online estate agencies. Very competitive pricing too. Thank you Williamson’s.

Mr and Mrs Overall

Very helpful quick excellent service Have dealt with both Jenny Holloway and Emma Hudson in the past and on each occasion have found them both excellent and would recommend them both to any future clients Thank you once again for your excellent professional service

Mr C P

Brilliant communication and a first class effort despite a Rocky move, Jenny and Emma at the Hull city centre branch where fantastic.

Ms A

Very helpful and attentive, would definitely recommend Samantha/Jane of Williamsons sollicitors

Sue L

Our solicitor Carey Robinson was at all times helpful and professional, nothing was too much trouble. I would not hesitate to recommend her to friends and family.
