    Mr Gulihar made me feel at ease from the first consultation and was open and honest about my treatment and the amount of pain I was likely to experience. This helped me to prepare for each injection and actually it wasn't that bad in the end

    Surgery for shoulder arthroscopy, biceps tenotomy, bursectomy, SAD & ACJ excision. Delighted with the outcome and living like a new man once again. First class professionalism from Mr Gulihar and his team. Excellent post-op follow ups. Overall, amazed that I have been "repaired"so quickly in these difficult Covid times. Thank you to all concerned.

    Mr Gulihar treated me for Depuytrens Contracture - a procedure done with local anaesthetic. He explained everything clearly, listened to my queries and was happy to answer questions. He was calm and kind, and I therefore felt less anxious. The procedure seems very successful, is healing well, my fingers are straighter, and I am in much less discomfort. My follow-up review with Mr Gulihar was also very helpful. He referred me for hand therapy which has been very beneficial. Thankyou so much to Mr Gulihar, I am most impressed with the care and professionalism I have experienced. Thankyou also to all staff at the Sloane.

    I receive very professional and efficient investigation and diagnosis of my condition leading to surgery to release my ulnar nerve. The whole process was excellent and i had no pain as a result of the surgery. I was able to resume normal activity immediately after my bandages were removed. I have no reservations in recommending Mr Gulihar to others.

    I had the greatest care from Mr Gulihar. I was referred to him after two failed attempts to fix my dislocated surgery. I was in pain and felt hopeless. He explained the situation patiently and was encouraging about a positive outcome. All through the process, from first encounter to my last visit and discharge, he was very knowledgeable, empathetic and professional. I am extremely grateful for such compassionate and professional care.

    Mr. Gulihar was extremely knowledgeable about my wrist problem and took the time to thoroughly explain the condition to me including imaging results and treatment options. Mr. Guliar also took into account my travel plans when arranging my surgery and post-op care, which must not have been easy, particularly with the COVID-19 pandemic. My wrist issues have now greatly improved following treatment, and I am very grateful for the excellent care I received from Mr. Gullihar. Thank you!
