Extremely welcoming. Explained everything and answered my questions in depth. I felt extremely relaxed with him and had every confidence in his ability.
Excellent. Explained the procedure and what i could expect
I can’t thank Mr Saksena enough. He has changed my whole outlook on life with the difference his surgery has made. I will be forever grateful to him.
Straight forward and realistic with expectations of outcome of procedure. Mr Saksena gave options and outcomes which helped to inform my decision to move forward with having a total hip replacement. If in the future I should need the other hip replaced I would request Mr Saksena as my surgeon.
After Mr Joyti Saksena performed very successful hip replacements for myself and my husband in 2018 and 2019, very much improving our quality of life over the past few years, I knew I would be in excellent hands for my knee replacement in July 2023. As expected, I received the best possible treatment at the Highgate hospital, from Mr Saksena, his team, and the wonderful nurses and physiotherapists. Mr Saksena explained that a knee replacement was the remaining option, patiently answered my many questions, providing reassurance before the operation and excellent follow-up thereafter. Once again, his kind and friendly manner meant that I approached the surgery in a relaxed frame of mind, which definitely speeded up my recovery. I am forever grateful!
Mr Saksena was very informative and explained everything to me. He also came to see me before and after my op which I very much appreciated
Always inclusive in explaining every element of procedure informing me clearly and with sensitive kindness regarding the steps of recovery. Bedside manner was genuine, any questions I had were listened to and answered, always leaving me feeling a sense of trust and clarity.
I couldn’t have wished for a better Consultant as I found Mr Saksena so easy to converse with and I’m so grateful for the excellent work he has done on my knees. What an absolute Gentleman.
Mr Saksena was friendly and approachable. He answered my questions and put me at ease. Finally, he appears to have done a great job of replacing my hip and stitching me back up.
Very friendly and reassuring
