After receiving his PhD from University College London, Mr. Johal has spent years researching congenital bladder anomalies, posterior urethral valves, and neuropathic bladders.

He is currently pursuing a fellowship at the University of California, San Francisco.
A working group from the UN has said that the detention of Jagtar Johal was arbitrary and that he should be released immediately. The UK Foreign Secretary raised the case with the Indian government in December, citing the allegations of torture and mistreatment, as well as his right to a fair trial. In August last year, Mr. Johal’s brother was among dozens of protesters outside Downing Street in London, urging the UK to intervene on his behalf. The case has sparked protests around the world.
Mr. Johal’s specialist training included fellowships in Bristol and London. He was awarded a prestigious EFORT fellowship at the University of Leuven, Belgium, and completed his MD thesis on the kinematics of the knee joint. He has published extensively in scientific journals and presented his research at national and international conferences. He has extensive experience in treating knee conditions, including sports injuries. In addition to his expertise in knee ligament and meniscal surgery, Mr. Johal is also proficient in medial patellofemoral ligament reconstruction.
