“Mr Imbuldeniya has performed two knee operations on me (first the left knee and then the right knee) during the last two years. Both operations were arthroscopy with partial medial meniscectomy and chondroplasty of medial femoral condyle. The operations were successful and I was mobile within a week after the operations. Mr Imbuldeniya and his team are very professional and made the entire process extremely easy with minimum stress. I'm very satisfied with the professionalism, experience and results, and therefor highly recommends Mr Imbuldeniya.“

    Mr.Imbuldeniya is not only immensely knowledgeable but also a talented communicator, friendly, open, and most important of all, a problem solver. He quickly assessed my acute condition and in spite of the Coronavirus crisis managed to schedule prompt ,effective surgery. He also has a great sense of humour.

    I saw Mr Imbuldeniya in his NHS after seeing a consultant with a dreadfully condensing, uninterested attitude. Mr Imbuldeniya was patient, honest and humorous. He seemed to understand that my particular concern was a big deal to me even if he’d seen hundreds of similar cases. When explaining something if I didn’t get it he found another way to express it to ensure I did get it. I felt I would be in safe hands hands that saw me as an individual rather than a collection of damaged bones on an x-ray. I’m well recovering from a hip replacement and I wholeheartedly recommend him as a surgeon and greatly admire his attitude to his work. We need more like him.

    Excellent isn't enough to give to Mr Imbuldeniya and his team who guided me through my total hip replacement before and after care. Just like you are doing now I read the reviews, they are so important for both consultant and patient/client this being the reason for me writing one. As soon as you meet him he puts you at your ease, he has a warm friendly approach explains all options, answers all your questions. He is a true professional, genuinely wanting to help. His wonderful caring PA Annie, who must be exceptionally busy made time to listen and explain any queries I had. Mr Andrew Castello-Cortes the anesthetist explained pros and cons (as I wanted to stay awake) of having a spinal block injection. Another very caring person looking after me throughout the operation. I still cannot believe I was chatting just as you would over coffee during Op. Operation over in morning me walking a few steps same afternoon. In my third week on one crutch just incase of tripping, been on buses, trains, and of course doing my exercises, a must! Can't thank you all enough and other theatre staff for relieving me of the pain I was in. Would highly recommend you to all.

The surgery went amazingly and his assistant Annie even text me after the op to see how things were going. I am now 8 months post op and feel stronger than I did prior to my injury. Thank you to Mr Imbuldeniya and also to Annie.

    I started to see Mr Imbuldeniya in April 2018 who very quickly organised an MRI Scan to reveal I had some pretty serious damage to my right knee. We tried going down the route of not initially having surgery but after a couple of other incidents we decided that surgery would be the best course of action. I'm now post op by almost two months and I'm very happy with my recovery. I can't recommend Mr Imbuldeniya (and his team) highly enough for their professionalism and attention to detail.

I have no hesitation in recommending him wholeheartedly if you are considering knee or hip surgery. His PA Annie also deserves a special mention - she is warm and friendly, and extremely good at her job. All arrangements were made effectively and I am happy with all aspects of my treatment.

    I am on day 4 after my total hip replacement procedure completed by the Ice Ortho team of Mr. Imbuldeniya, and Dr. Andrew Castello-Cortes at The Clementine Churchill Hospital. I cannot tell you the relief I now have versus the severe pain I have been experiencing since 2011. It has been a long process to actually get to this stage which commenced with an initial introduction consultation with Mr. Imbuldeniya in August 2018. I was initially scheduled for a surgery in November having met Mr. Imbuldeniya again to discuss the process further and being made to feel totally secure with the situation to only have to postpone until February 2019 due to discovering a non pre-diagnosed condition that prevented surgery in my pre-operation test carried out at The Clementine Churchill Hoispital. As such, the surgery was finally agreed to be undertaken with some additional risks all of which I was fully hand held through by Mr. Imbuldeniya and Dr. Andrew Castello-Cortes. I was massively impressed by the approach of the team entirely to my situation and the necessary managing and prevention measures taken right up to and during my procedure. I have commenced my recovery and physio again at The Clementine Churchill and I am astonished at the rate I have progressed since day zero - operation day. I can honestly say as I write that the team are my own personal heroes and should I ever have the need to have any revision work undertaken or have my other hip replaced, I would be hard pushed to consider an alternative team. Thank you

    Mr Inbuldeniya has been a fantastic consultant and surgeon from start to finish. I have seen a number of other consultants regarding my ACL repair, but Mr Inbuldeniya has by far been the most knowledgeable and shows a genuine interest in both your injury before and recovery post surgery. He makes you feel very at ease and comfortable with the surgery that is being performed, and the scars post surgery prove how skilled he is as they are barely noticeable! Would highly recommend Mr Imbuldeniya without hesitation.

During my playing career I have had the unfortunate privilege of having been seen to by various consultants for a plethora ailments and I would wholeheartedly say that Mr Imbuldeniya's operation was the most successful.

    Mr Arjuna Imbuldeniya is an expert in Hip surgery, including complex reconstruction. He is a thoroughly friendly and down to earth surgeon who cares deeply about his patients. We have trained together both in the UK and Internationally. He has an excellent academic background supporting his work.
