“A big thank you for your skill in taking extra bone out and fixing my hip.  It is amazing now not to be in pain with it after so many years. Working hard on the rehab I jumped for the first time in many years last week and joi”

“The result of the surgery has been excellent and has transformed my life – enabling me to stay in my home and remain independent.  I was recently able to celebrate my 90th birthday with family and friends which was wonderful”

“I’m writing to thank you for the wonderful treatment I received at your hands, at every phase of my total hip replacement surgery.  From my first consultation with you, right through to the surgery, you put me at ease, explaining all that I needed to know.  This gave me great confidence and I felt completely relaxed and calm approaching the major surgery.  It is now two weeks since surgery and I am amazed at the speed of my recovery.  I am completely without pain and my flexibility is increasing daily – a testimony to your very considerable skill.  My GP nurse commented on the neatness of the wound, which had completely healed, in fact she described is as ‘beautiful’ I too was rather taken aback to see how small and neat the incision was!”

“The surgeon’s surgeon!”

“After several difficult years it is hard to describe just how successful my operation has been and how it has changed what I am able and confident to do.  I have no pain and complete movement and flexibility.  I have balance and can stretch, I walk too fast now for a lot of my friends.  Last year I clambered over temples in Cambodia and went miles into the countryside on the back of a motorbike.  Thank you.”

“I just wanted to write to say a big thank you for my new hip – it has made such a difference to my life! It is so good to be able to go walking again and also play football with my grandsons”

– JH

“It has been an absolute pleasure to meet you and the confidence you inspired in me from our first meeting has evolved into a sense of great optimism for the future.  From the moment I awoke from the anaesthetic I have enjoyed a strong sense that this operation seems to have been far more successful than the last and I am profoundly grateful to you.  When I attended the physiotherapy class in the hospital gym, I found myself by chance or as a consequence of listings, surrounded by other patients all of whom were under your care.  I was struck by the tremendous warmth with which each of them spoke of you.  Coming as I do from a long line of doctors I was brought up with and value the human side of medicine.  It is clear from our dealings and those of my fellow patients that this is one of your great strengths.”

“I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for the wonderful job you did giving me a new hip and my life back.  I no longer feel like an old lady shuffling along, I can now hold my head up high and feel ten years younger (with a spring in my step)”

– VM

“Thank you so much for agreeing to replace my hip and give me back my life.  For the past year my life has been on hold but now I can do all the things I love to do again like walking, travelling, yoga, dancing or anything without pain”

– PG

“May I take this opportunity to pass on my thanks to Mr Velayudham for his very proficient, kind and skilful handling of my second hip replacement.  I particularly appreciate his pleasant, humorous but assuring manner and if I had three hips I would certainly come back again!”

– JD

“Always difficult to find adequate words of thanks when one has been given something as amazing as a new lease of life, but I do want to thank you as best I can for so very kindly taking me on for my hip replacement.  Such excellent care throughout deserves my heartfelt gratitude and this is absolutely how I feel”

– JT

“Having had my second hip done by you, I am now whole again.  I feel wonderful thanks to your skills and am looking forward to enjoying an active retirement. I appreciate all the kindness, efficiency and talents involved before and during my op and the aftercare”

– DW

“I would like to thank you and your team for the treatment that I have received.  The high level of skills, dedication and professionalism demonstrated by all the people involved in my care has enabled me to make a full recovery from my cycling injury.  I am back on the bike and have managed to clock over 1000km.  I could not have done this without you”
