It was a great relief to meet Mr Shah

The staff at Goring Hall were amazing and they made me feel like I was staying in a 5-star hotel. The team were constantly ensuring that I felt comfortable and had what I needed.

I’m extremely grateful to Mr Shah and his team

I’m extremely grateful to Mr Shah and his team and would HIGHLY recommend that anyone living alongside hip pain get in touch with him. I hope that when my hip does eventually need replacing that I am fortunate enough be under the care of Mr Shah again.

Patient testimonial

Mr Shah and his team looked after me so well

I am not a confident person and although I was in debilitating pain before the operation I could not be certain that my outcome would be better and I was not opening myself up to other unknown problems. I need not have worried as Mr Shah and his team looked after me so well, putting my mind at rest every step of the way, and the operation went to plan.

Just a short note to say a big thank you!

Just a short note to say a big thank you! For all your skill and care during my recent hip replacement.

Review for Mr Nirav Shah

I can’t thank Mr Shah enough for giving me a new lease of life!

I progressed very quickly and was able to walk increasing distances without pain within a short time. It was so wonderful to be able to resume all activities I had once been able to do, which had been denied to me by arthritis. I can’t thank Mr Shah enough for his concern, experience, surgical skill and for giving me a new lease of life!

I am so grateful for getting back my old active life again

It is now a year on, and I am delighted with the result being able to garden and go for long walks. I have even started running again, inspired by the 2.6 challenge to support the charities hit by the cancellation of the marathons due to Covid-19. Thank you, Mr Shah and your team, I am so grateful for getting back my old active life again.

The reward – skiing in December that year

Following surgery, I was desperate to get back to the sports that I had enjoyed previously and threw myself into physio – which I must say was not easy. The reward – skiing in December that year and completing the Brighton Half Marathon the following February.

Thank you all for the excellent treatment and care I have received

Thank you all! Mr N Shah, consultant orthopaedic surgeon and your team of dedicated and committed peoples for the excellent treatment and care I have received.

I would like to convey my grateful thanks to Mr Shah and his super team

My first appointment with Mr Shah was such a relief

Thank you Mr Shah for putting me back together again

Thank you Mr Shah for putting me back together again after my fall in April. I think you are a truly amazing surgeon, and kind, also.

The care I was given by Mr Shah and his team at Goring Hall was wonderful

It’s just over eight months since Mr Shah gave me my second new hip ( I now have a matching pair). Mr Shah also gave me my first hip three years ago, and both times the care I was given by Mr Shah and his team at Goring Hall was wonderful.

I am so very grateful to you for prioritising my mum

I’m writing to thank you and your team for the opportunity you have given my mum. At 92, I’m not sure every surgeon would have had the same philosophy as yours and I am so very grateful to you for prioritising my mum for her hip replacement surgery. She is doing really well from what I can tell as a non-medic, and I hope when you or Dr Kumar see her in June you will see that improvement too. Thank you for believing in the possible.

A small note of great thanks for the op

The speed of recovery far exceeded my expectations

The constant pain is no longer there and I’m doing very well

Her progress is remarkable and has given her a new lease of life

I am sitting here with Mum enjoying Christmas. Mum is staying with us this year, last year she could hardly walk, this year she walked up the path and into my house. Thank you so much for both Mum’s hip and knee. Her progress is remarkable and has given her a new lease of life.
