From the first consultation to my 6 after operation review Mt Shukla has been totally professional and has offered I think world class healthcare.
I found him a very knowledgeable and calming man. He put me at my ease and I would highly recommend him.
Mr Shukla Is a Surgeon that when talking to, that you can tell has a genuine care for his patients. He gives you a reassurance In his assessment that helps ease the anxiety with the thoughts you have with your up and coming procedure.
From the very first meeting I felt respected and listened to. Mr Shukla treated me with dignity and I felt the care was tailored to my personal and individual needs. I felt incredibly looked after by all of Mr. Shukla's team who demonstrated professionalism to the highest degree from start to finish. The information provided was discussed in further detail face to face and I felt I was allowed time to digest the information given and to ask any questions that I may have.
Mr Shukla explained everything carefully. Listened to my questions and took time to answer fully. Very efficient and reassuring.
This was the 3rd procedure under Mr Shukla and would recommend him for anyone looking into any orthopaedic problems they have. I felt at ease with everything I was having done and each stage was explained fully so much so that I have arranged for another knee replacement only 4 months after having this one done. I am normally very nervous about any medical procedure but feel very confident in Mr Shukla's skill that I am never nervous or anxious when I know he is dealing with me.
Mr. Shukla has carried out 3 successful operations on me over the past 30 months and I very much appreciated the level of explanation and advice he was able to offer in a thoroughly professional yet friendly and reassuring way. I would have no hesitation in recommending Mr. Shukla for both consultation and surgical procedures based on my overall experience.
Mr. Shukla exudes a reassuring manner and always takes the time to answer questions and explain the nature of the medical condition and alternative treatments available. He has always been extremely pleasant and polite and his overall approach gave me confidence in his ability to do everything possible to provide the best possible care and long term outcome. Having experienced and recovered successfully from three surgical procedures with Mr. Shukla, I would have no hesitation in recommending him to other prospective patients.
Excellent experience, very clear and concise with regards procedure and instructions.
During my stay at woodlands I was treated with respect and every aspect from the operation to recovery was explained fully by mr Shukla, the nurses, physios, etc. Thanks also to the cleaners and catering staff. Since returning home I have received numerous telephone calls with regard to my progress
Meeting Mr Shukla was a pleasure. His assessment of my shoulder problem was concise and understandable. He then proposed to explain how my shoulder problem could be rectified via a surgical procedure. Again the surgical procedure was fully explained and left me in no doubt that I wanted to proceed. On the day of the operation Mr Shukla came to see me, verified the procedure he was going to undertake and marked my shoulder to ensure the correct one was operated on. The operation was a fantastic success. Mr Shukla’s professionalism throughout my experience with him has been exceptional.
Very happy with surgery and explanation of diagnosis.
I was extremely pleased with the whole process of my Knee Replacement procedure. I felt I was kept informed and the procedure was explained to me at all the different stages. Extremely pleased with the outcome.
Very caring and helpful in every way taking time to explain my procedure in detail giving me confidence to go forward
I have attended Woodland Hospital several times, both as a private patient and as an NHS patient. I have always had a good experience and this latest visit was enhanced by Mr Shukla’s professionalism, friendliness, courtesy and willingness to take time to explain things and discuss the operation. I subsequently discovered that his surgical skill was first class. Surgery is never a pleasant experience but under Mr Shukla any doubts, reservations and worries were quickly allayed. He will always have my gratitude.
My experience under Mr Shukla's care was excellent. He (and his team) explained the procedure thorougly, my procedure went as planned, and I was very pleased with all aspects of care, and the results of the surgery .Many thanks!
Mr Divyang Shukla is amazing, very professional, kind and caring and instills a sense of confidence. I have had several operations under his care and trust him implicitly. He is the best.
From my first consultation with Mr Shukla, I was very impressed with his bedside manner, his friendly approach and the clarity of his communication. He took his time to explain to me in a very clear and understandable manner all the aspects and risks of the procedures regarding my hip replacement. Also, I appreciated his concerns on making sure that all necessary post operative care was in place before leaving the hospital.
My treatment from Mr Shukla was excellent in every way from the initial consultation to the aftercare appointments. Each step was explained thoroughly and I would like to thank Mr Shukla for giving me my life back free from pain
I cannot fault the treatment I received from start to finish. I was initially referred by my GP, to Mr Shukla, who is based at The Woodlands Hospital, Kettering, following an x-ray, which showed excessive wear to my left hip, caused by Osteo Arthritis. I contacted Woodlands Hospital shortly afterwards, and within two days, was given an appointment to see Mr Shukla, within a very short period of time. I visited Mr Shukla at Woodlands Hospital. I found him to be extremely professional and helpful, explaining in detail the procedure of fitting an artificial left hip. I was initially very worried about having such an operation, but was put completely at my ease by Mr Shukla. I was fully informed about the pros and cons of the operation. A date for my operation was set for approximately one month later, which I thought was fantastic. I had the operation on 12th November 2019, spending 3 nights in hospital. The treatment I received from Mr Shukla and his wonderful staff, can only be classed as second to none. I have followed all the expert advice I was given by Mr Shukla and his staff, physios, nurses etc. which I am certain has aided my full recovery. I have not had a major operation in my life before. A potentially very stressful experience for most people, including myself, was made so much easier by everyone, from Mr Shukla downwards. Thank you all.
I have recently had 2 operations with Mr Shukla, a rotator cuff repair and a full hip replacement. From the outset I found Mr Shukla to be extremely professional and very helpful in explaining to me exactly what the procedures would entail and this in turn put me at ease. I would highly recommend Mr Shukla for any Orthopaedic Surgery.
I have found Mr Shukla both kind and giving good detailed explanation of the whole process for a total knee replacement. My treatment has been a success, I was treated extremely well throughout and I am delighted with the whole process.
Mr Shukla is not only a brilliant surgeon, but a kind and decent man too. He is empathetic, considered, extremely knowledge and always puts me at ease (he’s already operated on me twice and fixes two very troublesome & complex problems). I feel totally safe in his hands and fear nothing on that basis. I would throughly recommend any reader who is suffering orthopaedic pain.
Welcomed with a smile and handshake, very professional, explained everything prior to operation in detail. Very impressed with smallness of scar, healing success and aftercare. Dexterity improved once swelling decreased & continues to improve. Thank you Mr Shukla for your Care Compassion Consideration and Improvements.
I have had 2 total knee replacements under the care of Mr. Shukla. In both cases the level of care has been exemplary - the operation was well explained and the ops went well with no complications. Mr Shuklas' post op care has been first class, and the last follow up visit re assured me that all was well and recovery well on course.
Mr Shukla has replaced both my arthritic hips and I can not be any more complementary of his skill, care and expertise. He explains things at every stage of my treatment and has a very caring and understanding manner.
My pre-op consultations were good with clear advice and description of the required procedure, which I found normal. It was when I was in pre-op that I began picking up on the positive comments regarding Mr Shukla which went beyond normal patient reassurance. These comments continued when in recovery which I found memorable as with previous medical procedures I've undergone the surgeon was never mentioned. Two weeks later when the dressing was changed and the wound revealed prompted to comment " Look at that, that's perfect. You can always tell Mr Shukla's work". This left me with absolutely no doubt of the very high regard the hospital staff has for him.
My consultations prior the operation were very clear and informative as one would expect. It was when I was in pre-op I first picked up on comments made the hospital staff attending to me regarding Mr. Shukla's abilities which went beyond the normal reassurances given to patients prior to surgery. When in recovery I received the same positive comments which I found memorable as with previous treatments I've undergone the surgeon has never been mentioned. Two weeks later when having the dressing removed revealing the wound prompted the comment "look at that, that's perfect. You can always tell Mr Shukla's work". I was then left in no doubt about the exceptionally high regard the hospital staff had for him.
I have been fortunate to be treated by Mr Shukla on several occasions for shoulder treatment. I say fortunate because as much as medical treatment can be daunting, Mr Shukla immediately puts you at ease, his professionalism and kindness are always very reassuring. I would have no hesitation recommending or revisiting Mr Shukla. Thank you again for you expertise.
What a wonderful man and Doctor. From the moment I met him I knew I was in the best hands, and I was right! My operation went as smoothly as possible. Considering my cartilage was as severe a tear as he had seen, I was walking again within a week. Thank you so much. Also, the staff at Woodland hospital were great.
I'm thankful for having Mr Shukla as my consultant because right from the initial consultation, I felt my shoulder problems were in the right hands to be solved. He listened to my woes of dealing with this recurring problem, which had been plaguing me over the last 6+ years. Where the previous doctors/consultants had looked at treating the symptom and not looking at a long term plan, I felt heard (finally) by him as he described the next steps to look at what exactly was happening. My solution was keyhole surgery, which was sorted out quickly and Mr Shukla talked me through what this would entail. After surgery, he came explained what was found/done. His team made sure my partner was aware of what to do for the after care and wrote down instructions for me to follow, once the anaesthetic/nerve block had worn off. If anyone is experiencing shoulder problems, I would definitely recommend they go to see/be referred to Mr Shukla for treatment.
Mr Shukla is fantastic. He has performed four operations for me, both hips and both knees. Each time he has been incredible in every way. He is pleasant, patient, reassuring , efficient and skilful. He filled me with complete confidence in his ability and the fact that I would see so much benefit from every procedure. I was in so much pain before my last hip operation that I could barely walk and trying to sleep was a nightmare, he has cured all that. I cannot Praise or thank Mr Shukla enough, I tell everyone he has rebuilt me and that is how I genuinely feel. I must also give thanks to the excellent nursing and physio therapy staff who cared for me whilst I was in the Woodland Hospital and also the reception staff who are always very pleasant.
Mr Shukla has a engaging relaxed manner, he listens attentively and quickly processes this information and identifies your main concerns and offers a detailed plan of care taking into account existing disabilities and clearly explains an approximate timeline. He makes you feel cared for and more importantly listened to. Mr Shukla displays professionalism and respect for his patient and their relatives at all times. Both my husband(patient) and myself were given clear explanations about his condition with MRI and post op X-rays been explained in a clear and understandable way and we were encouraged to ask questions. Pre Op Mr Shukla’s relaxed manner puts you at ease to his post op visit updating us clearly with how things went.His team also give a high level of care and worked with professionalism. The smooth way he ensured everything was in place prior to discharge from pain relief, physiotherapy and post op appointment was reassuring. He gave my husband back his life, which had been blighted by excruciating pain and loss of mobility. We cannot praise him highly enough, he will always be our choice of Orthopaedic Consultant both now and in the future.
Everything was explained to me from my initial consultation, in hospital and post op. If I need to see an orthopaedic surgeon in the future I would request that my referral was made to Mr Shukla. I am now pain free and feel like I have my life back.
Mr Shukla is always very professional but also approachable. He always explains results of tests or his diagnosis and Then sets out possible options in order to move forward and improve the patient’s experience. I would recommend Mr Shukla without reservation.
I have had three joint replacements in the last two years by Mr Shukla. He has been very professional and caring and left me with very neat scars.I would have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone needing this type of operation and recommend Woodlands hospital for their professional care. Should I need any further assistance I would hope that Mr Shukla would still be available as he was very approachable and understanding.
Mr Shukla made me feel at ease with my very painful condition. He explained my problem and also the surgery required. I have had to date four procedures over a period of 6 years. Mr Shukla has carried out all of them, he is in my mind the best in his field. He is also a very kind and thoughtful gentleman. I can not thank him and his staff enough. I am indeed a happy pain free patient.
I have had four procedures by Mr Shukla over a 5 or 6 year period and I can honestly write every procedure has been first class. He is a very experienced surgeon who's advice gives you confidence to have treatment if required. He explains your problem and in my case sorts it out. I can't thank him and his staff enough
A very good experience overall. Mr Shukla was kind and explained everything very clearly. I am very pleased with my recovery. I felt very confident having my knee replacement done by him.
A very professional consultation, Mr Shukla took time to explain the condition and potential forms of treatment and was very willing to answer any questions I had. A follow up appointment was booked in a timely manner and at a time to suit me for first treatment .
From the first time i saw Mr Shukla he has been so professional with explaining every option to do with my arthritis in my shoulder. It was a difficult decision to make due to my age being 34. I decided to have a shoulder resurfacing Operation which has been a total success. I am now pain free, and Mr Shukla’s after care has been absolutely amazing. I Highly recommend Mr Shukla as a top professional in his job.
Two Total Knee Replacements, both by the Amazing Mr Shukla. Excellent Treatment & Care from beginning to end, Great Surgeon Extremely professional explains clearly he is understanding & listens to your concerns. I could not be more pleased with my results & recovery. Great Results & Movement. Mr Shukla Thank You 🙂.
Dr Shukla is a brilliant surgeon, my knee replacement operation went extremely well, i've had very little pain. My follow up appointment went really well, my xray was explained to me in detail. Overall i'm very pleased with my experience at the Theee Shires Hospital.
Mr Shukla after reviewing my scans that my right knee required a full replacement. At all stages of the process including X-rays ,discussion with my anaesthetist, nursing staff and physio’s I was treated on a professional and emphatic manner. After my successful operation my recuperation was in a planned and progressive manner. At all times I was in full knowledge of my medical progress in a logical manner While medical operations can be stressful I was in control and Mr Shukla and his team made the process as easy and as stress free as possible In summary Mr Shukla and his team I fully recommend there services to all patients, an attribute to his hospital and the medical profession
Excellent doctor, compassionate and friendly, he is very respectful and explains everything, very attentive and does not rush through a visit.
Mr Shukla is amazing! I felt extremely well informed throughout the entire process and extremely well cared for. My stay in hospital was on a par with a 5 star hotel and nothing was too much trouble. The aftercare I am receiving is excellent. My only regret is that I put off having my hip replacement for two years and I’m looking forward to having my other hip replaced by Mr Shukla next Spring
Mr Shukla is a total gentleman listens to the patient and is not pushy at all in having to operate as to no other option I cannot recommend him enough
As always Mr Shulka is fantastic. He's informative, professional, and detailed
Mr Shukla is extremely professional and explains the diagnosis and options for treatment in a way that fills you with confidence. I have had three operations with Mr Shukla, all of which have been transformational in terms of improving my mobility. I would highly recommend him.
Very clear in his explanation and reassuring during procedure. Thank you
