“Before my operation for a replacement hip I could only walk with the aid of a walking stick, and I couldn’t go far without experiencing pain. Because my legs were not of equal length, I limped as well. In order to improve matters I went to see Mr Shah.
Mr Shah was very reassuring and told me that if he operated to give me a replacement hip, I would be able to get back to the level of activity I had enjoyed when I was fit. He explained exactly what would be happening during and after the operation and gave me great confidence.
He and his team were all caring and patient and happy to answer any questions I had without making me feel that I was making a fuss. They all had time for me and the treatment I received was excellent.
I was walking with one stick before I left the hospital and made a very swift and full recovery. I didn’t experience any pain – just a little discomfort in the early stages of recovery. My legs are now of equal length once more and I can walk around and join in activities again.
Mr Shah has certainly given me back my quality of life and I am very grateful to him and his team.”
