    From the initial assessment through to treatment I've received a high level of professional care from Mr Chaudhary and his medical team. He has spent a good amount of time to ensure I fully understood my condition and explained in great detail the treatments available to me. During my treatment it was also very reassuring to hear that Mr Chaudhary and his team hold a very high level professional regard amongst the staff at the Manor Hospital.

    Mr Chaudhary was kind enough to make himself available to see me at short notice and took time to review third party scans and reports. He was professional, as expected, but also engaging and understanding. He took time to discuss options in detail and skilfully involved me in the decision making process for my spinal issues. There is more than comfort in knowing that your surgeon understands your problem!

    I was admitted to the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre in September 2016 for a discectomy under the care of Mr Chaudhary. Prior to the surgery I was experiencing excruciating pain on a daily basis, post surgery I am now pain free. I could not have hoped for a better result. I am extremely grateful for the excellent care that I received. Having never undergone surgery before it was important to me to feel at ease and confident with the person that would operate. After our initial consultation I had every confidence in Mr Chaudhary and the care I would receive. An excellent surgeon whom I would highly recommend.

    I arrived at the John Radcliffe Trauma Unit on Thursday evening a week after a fall from my horse. I spent the week in a general hospital awaiting a diagnosis and plan; given that I had an unstable fracture of my spine this was a very difficult time for me. I felt vulnerable and at risk of further injury. From the minute I was referred to the John Radcliffe I was treated with absolute professionalism, care and respect. Before I arrived my case had been discussed by the Trauma team and treatment options decided. When I arrived each person I met introduced themselves and took the time to explain their role in my care and recovery. Dr Chaudhary went in to considerable detail about my operation and answered all the questions I had with care and attention to detail. I had every confidence that he and his team had my best interests at heart. I was in surgery on Friday morning and by Saturday evening I was discharged. His keyhole surgery technique has meant that my speedy recovery seems to be assured. I cannot thank him enough. The contrast between all the staff at the John Radcliffe - the health care team, the nurses, the anaesthetists, the surgeons and the physiotherapists and those at the other hospital was night and day. It was a pleasure to experience such high standards of professionalism, care and support.

    Mr Chaudhary spent time explaining my condition, the primary aim of treatment, details of the procedure, risks and the likely outcome. This was hugely reassuring given the severity of the condition and the speed with which it was dealt. He was also available post-operatively and in the weeks following surgery for any questions I had during recovery which helped manage my own expectations of the healing process.Mr Chaudhary has my very great thanks and respect.

    From the first moment my husband and I met Mr Chaudhary, we were overwhelmed by his professionalism and knowledge. I was diagnosed with nerve root compression L5/S1. Mr Chaudhary suggested he carry out keyhole discectomy to remove the protruding part of the disc. Mr Chaudhary's bedside manner is second to none. Just hours after my operation Mr Chaudhary came to my bed side and he personally assisted me out bed and walked with me. Mr Chaudhary also has a very strong and loyal team around him, which helps relax and support the patient. I found the complete experience throughout Mr Chaudhary and his team very professional, relaxing, secure and the feedback once I reached the ward by the team was exceptional.

    When we arrived for my daughter's surgery, we were extremely apprehensive. During the months of symptoms and distress she had been experiencing we had become increasingly disillusioned about the seeming lack of interest and care she had been shown after seeking help on many occasions from practitioners in our home town. Because of this, our expectations were low when we arrived in Oxford. Within a very short time of meeting Mr Chaudhary and some his team, that changed. Mr Chaudhary was extremely personable, explained my daughter's condition and the planned procedure, spoke to us both in plain language and willingly answered questions. Whilst pointing out the risks as well as the benefits of surgery for my daughter, he also offered reassurance and displayed confidence in the abilities of himself and the team to deliver a good, safe outcome from the procedure.The combination of his clear knowledge and expertise and his very personal and caring approach relieved many of our fears. For the first time since my daughter's symptoms began we both felt like she was receiving care as an individual and was in safe hands. These comments also apply to all members of his team that we came into contact with.Mr Chaudary's explanation that if the surgery took a bit longer than expected, it did not indicate a problem was also very reassuring as I was waiting for my daughter to return after surgery. As promised he phoned me when she was taken to recovery to let me know it was over and that the surgery had gone to plan without complications.The whole experience was made so much better by Mr Chaudhary and his colleagues' kind and helpful approach and we are very grateful for both their clinical skills and their human touch.

    I had severe lower back and leg pain and from the outset Roy Chaudhary took time to explain all the possible procedures to deal with the problem. With the information provided he made a fast and clear diagnosis making it easy for me to understand and make decisions upon. Within two weeks I was admitted and had key hole surgery and literally from not being able to move without pain to within 3-4 hours of having had the procedure was able to get up and walk with no pain. The aftercare was brilliant with Roy and his team remaining very attentaive while in hospital over night. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Roy Chaudhary based on my experience, he's personable, highly skilled and made sure through all stages of the process I was keep informed and comfortable.
