Keith's double knee replacement
Because of the severity of Keith’s condition, Mr Shah recommended a staged bilateral total knee replacement to relieve his symptoms. During the operations, which were carried out three months apart, Mr Shah was able to replace the joint in a way that significantly corrected Keith’s bowing, giving him straight legs for the first time in many years.
My legs were super fit before the first operation, but they weren’t after the second operation, so I had to be more careful building them up, so I could get back to playing golf. To the amazement of my family, playing partners and friends I walked the hilly course further and further until I was able to swing the clubs and complete a few holes. In the second week of January I completed three full rounds every other day, and on foot pushing an electric golf trolley, without having to use a motorised buggy.
How did I play? I am delighted to say far better than I played before the operations when I had to go around heavily sedated by pain killers, something I no longer have to do.
In summary Mr Shah has improved my complete standard of life. Before the operations I wobbled around, lost my balance and occasionally tumbled over. Striking a golf ball is difficult enough but having to compose myself and get through a leg pain barrier is something of the past. I am also nearly 2cm taller now the legs are straight, and yes my golf is better than before the operations!
It is very difficult to express in words how grateful I am with my family for the recommendation by our GP Dr Thompson to Mr Shah and the incredible work he carried out on my legs. There are so many knee replacements carried out worldwide that too often they are taken for granted as a simple procedure.
If you are brave enough then look at the live operation on YouTube, you’ll definitely appreciate Mr Shah’s skills. He’s a nice guy with it and deserves all the accolades he is getting. He is backed by Rhonda who was instrumental in getting my medication advice to and back from Mr Shah so rapidly.
We have no hesitation recommending Mr Shah for any orthopaedic work.
