Jeffrey – hip replacement
Jeffrey was referred to Mr Shah by his GP after experiencing pain in his left hip joint, which was having a significant impact on his life. Mr Shah carried out a thorough examination and identified osteoarthritis of Jeffrey’s hip joint as the cause of his symptoms.
The solution was a total hip replacement. During the procedure, Mr Shah used a minimally invasive technique and a shorter ‘mini stem’ prosthesis to minimise any damage to Jeffrey’s hip muscles and encourage a quick recovery. Within a week, Jeffrey had begun walking without pain or any kind of support, and within just three weeks he was tackling long distances.
“Mr Shah is an excellent surgeon, polite, professional and very informative about my operation. I couldn’t fault anything. Everything went really well throughout and I am very happy with the before and after care. I was up and walking straight away and improving day by day.”Jeffrey Rainbird
