Mr Raj Bhattacharya
Mr Raj Bhattacharya is NuroKor’s Chief Clinical Advisor for Orthopaedics and Medical. He is also Clinical Director of Orthopaedics, Plastics and Major Trauma at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust and North West London Major Trauma Centre.

Raj’s primary focus at NuroKor is supporting the company’s clinical evaluation projects and helping to progress formal research - providing scientific evidence regarding its efficacy. The work will provide important validation of bioelectrical therapy, strengthening evidence for the technology to be incorporated into the wider healthcare realm. In addition, he’ll also help support new opportunities in clinical markets. He said:
“Pain is such a universal thing - pretty much everybody I know has suffered from pain at some stage in their life. I think having a non-invasive, affordable pain management system is, at some point, going to be taken up by society and the wider population
“Management of pain is a key driver for me as an orthopaedic surgeon. I want to be able to give something to my patients as they go home after surgery and say, wear this for the next two weeks. As long as I know it works and there are no harmful side effects, its use is pretty universal, so there's massive potential.”
