Puneet took great care to explain what was involved in my surgery, the time it would take to fully recover and the physio I would need. This made me feel at ease with the whole process. I would highly recommend him.
Two years ago I suffered severe damage to the tendons of my shoulder. This coincided with the beginning of the Covid pandemic. Consequently, my operation was carried out almost 2 years after the injury. My operation was cancelled five times and Covid was responsible for the majority of these cancellations. I am writing to you as I want to thank Mr Monga for all his efforts over the last two years. He is a true professional. During our meetings I always felt valued and fully informed of decisions and consequences. He showed empathy, sympathy and an understanding of my needs and concerns. I feel privileged that I was allocated to Mr Monga as my Orthopaedic Consultant. Words can never express how grateful I am for everything he has done for me, so I will be able to continue to enjoy an active lifestyle. After the operation Mr Monga and one of his team came to see me to check on my recovery from the operation. I would like to thank Mr Monga, for all his efforts, before, during and after my operation. I feel confident that I will be able to lead an active lifestyle again.
Always took time to explain and answer questions
Full explanations given, first class care, excellent
Mr Monga is very professional, spends time explaining things well, puts you at ease and has a kind and caring nature which maintains throughout.
Excellent doctor! He explained everything very clearly before and after the operation. My recovery was quick due to his expertise. He is very friendly and also professional which gives you assurance that you are in good hands. My shoulder instability is gone and I can now live life to the fullest.
A very professional and competent surgeon who listens to the patient and explains the procedure, complications and expectations. A clear plan of post op care was given. I am extremely pleased with my shoulder replacement. I am 3 weeks post op and pain free, some discomfort but nothing like I experienced pre op. I can happily recommend Mr Monga.
Mr Monga explained what was going to happen clearly and concisely
Mr Puneet Monga is an outstanding individual. His style gives one every assurance that he has everything under control as indeed he has. Mr Monga performed a new shoulder operation for me. It is an operation he is very proficient at performing and I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending him to anyone. I had suffered a great deal prior to my op and whilst it is a heavy duty op, Mr Monga did an excellent job and now I am pain free and living my life to the full.
Excellent Doctor. Explained everything throughout my treatment. Went the extra mile to make sure my recovery was as quick as it could be.
