Dr Patel is very knowledgable and treats his patients with great care. I cannot thank him enough for the swift appointment and operation following my ACL injury and fantastic follow up care. One year after my ACL repair, I am happy to say that I am back to normal life and ready to go skiing again! Highly recommended!
Jig was fantastic from start to finish.
It’s always disconcerting and frightening to find out that you need major surgery . You are , literally , putting your well being and your life in someone else’s hands . From the moment I met Jig Patel I felt safe . From our first meeting , to my final consultation he was kind, understanding, clear and concise . He made me feel safe , AND , he gave me the impetus and the confidence to get back on my feet . I would have no hesitation in recommending him to other people - he’s given me my ‘life’ back , and I’ll never be able to thank him enough .
Jig was very helpful and easy to talk to when I visited him about my hip pain. I would like to thank him for speedily and professionally sorting out my problem.
After a difficult experience within the NHS (my operation was cancelled 4 days in a row following a trauma injury - complete rupture of patella tendon), Mr Patel was able to see me the next day after I initially made contact. He was waiting for me at the Princess Grace following my transfer from Cambridge, and his manner immediately put me at ease and filled me with confidence. It was such a huge relief and change after the stress and discomfort of the the previous five days. The surgery went very well, and he was available to answer any questions I had during my recovery. At all times he was warm, friendly and filled me with confidence. The physio he recommended was also first rate. Nineteen weeks on from the injury and I am very happy with the results - I am close to resuming jogging and have already been swimming and weight training for some time. Each day I am noticing progress and feel that I will get back to 100%.
I very much appreciated the help I received from Mr. Patel. He was genuinely interested in my situation; he reviewed clearly with me the MRI and x-rays and explained the course of treatment recommended. I thank him for his assistance.
In February 2018 I suffered a knee problem in which it was prone to giving way as I walked. I contacted Mr. Patel for advice as I was going on holiday in March and needed to know if this was a realistic activity. I had suffered from arthritis for several years and the primary outcome of the diagnosis was that I needed a full knee replacement however an injection into the kneecap would probably save the holiday I had 2 injections in 2018 under his supervision and finally had the knee replacement in march 2019. Throughout this time the guidance and advice was first class. The surgery went well and my recovery compared to some others I know has gone exceptionally well Mr. Patel would certainly be the Orthopaedic Surgeon I would choose if my other knee requires attention
Excellent !! So pleased I chose Mr Patel as my consultant. He explained everything clearly and in terms that I could understand. He was mindful of my personal circumstances and made recommendations to my treatment keeping this in mind. He is a great consultant.
Very friendly and knowledgeable consultation.
Mr Jig Patel was amazing, I had been to two specialists previously, he treated me and was very professional and friendly, he explained my options and I left satisfied , would highly recommend him to others
I have recently undergone a hip replacement operation performed by Mr. Patel which has been very successful. The standard of care I received has been excellent throughout. The level of skill, expertise and empathy shown by Mr. Patel was impressive and I would highly recommend him to anyone who had need of his help.
I had a successful knee arthroscopy with Jig to fix a meniscus tear and couldn’t recommend him more - fantastic clear communication all the way through the process and fantastic results post surgery. Would highly recommend
EXplained clearly my options for recovery from this condition and exactly what it was.
I have seen Jig Patel three times this year as I have had a problem with my knee. I found him to be personable and thorough. In the event, I have not needed surgery but will not hesitate to see him again if the problem returns.
I saw Mr Patel for pain I was experiencing in my left knee. The whole consultation and treatment process was very straight forward and Mr Patel and his team were wonderful. They took the time to explain their processes and procedures, the diagnosis, recommended treatment and prognosis at each stage, clearly and made me feel very comfortable and confident with their recommendations and treatment. Mr Patel is a very pleasant and friendly professional and all my questions were answered by him completely, no matter what I asked. He was recommended to me by a friend and I would recommend him to anyone who experiences a similar problem.
Jig did such a good job sorting out my daughter's badly broken leg when it would not heal, he was my first choice of Consultant when I had a constantly painful knee joint. My experience was excellent from start to finish with immediate access to an MRI scan, effective diagnosis and explanation of the problem and decision to perform an arthroscopy. This was followed by rapid booking in for the procedure in London Clinic (which was also very clean, efficient and excellent) and the operation. Following the procedure to remove meniscus I was walking straight away and without pain. Six weeks on I have had no recurrence of pain and can happily walk two miles. Brilliant!
I have recently had a hip replacement carried out by Mr. Patel, my treatment and care were of the highest standard. Mr. Patel explained everything fully before my operation and followed up with very comprehensive after care. I would always recommend Mr. Patel and should the need arise return to him with any future problems.
From the initial consultation mr Patel explained my options and made me feel comfortable. I had an high tibial osteotomy and know feel better than ever. Over the last year mr Patel has been supportive and made the whole process straight forward and left me at ease.
Excellent surgeon and knee consultant. Informed throughout and highly satisfied with post op results.
Brilliant surgeon, left the hospital on the second day after a hip op. Walking well. Very grateful.
I have been referred to Dr Patel after 1 year of struggling with my knee and what proved to be a misdiagnosis from another specialist. From the beginning Dr Patel listened to me and thanks to him I am eventually on the recovery path. I can only recommend him.
Jig was an absolute pleasure to deal with and the outcome of my treatment is absolutely excellent. I cannot recommend him highly enough.
Jig was friendly and professional. He took time to explain the issue, outline the options, and help me make an informed decision. He was practical but encouraging and I really appreciated his friendly manner after traumatic experience with under-resourced NHS staff
Jig provided clear and personalised care, involving me fully in decisions. The admin (arranging investigations and getting results) was also excellent.
Good Practical English advice ! Thanks.
I had the pleasure of meeting and consulting Jig some 8 years ago for extreme pain in both knees. He performed two operations which were very successful. Before the ops MRI scans and XRays were completed to assess the situation and operating was the only option. Everything was explained in great detail and both operations were successful. I would like to thank Jig for benefit of his expertise and professionalism and would highly recommend him to anyone seeking a consultation.
Mr Patel has recently carried out a hip replacement for me. I found his advice and recommendations extremely clear and helpful. The operation was carried out as explained and I have recently had the all clear after 6 weeks. People who don't know I have had the operation don't even notice. Thank you Jig.
I cannot recommend Jig Patel highly enough. His friendly , courteous and professional manner was evident from my initial consultation with him through to the knee surgery itself. The outcome of the operation has been amazing. Jig Patel is a magician!!!
From my first assessment to my final consultation Jig Patel was incredibly, friendly, professional and knowledgeable, all of which helped put me at ease prior to my operation.
I had a new half knee on Jan 11th.My surgeon was Mr Jig Patel .well explained ,efficient and kind I am really pleased with his ability and professionalism and I am recovering well
Jig was fantastic from start to finish. From the initial consultation through to surgery and aftercare he took the time to explain everything clearly, was the consummate professional and focused not only on the immediate treatment, but on my goal of returning to Rugby after years of playing through chronic knee pain. I cannot recommend Jig more highly!
I highly recommend Mr Patel - he is thorough and sensible. He has a very personable and kind manner and most importantly has taken a sound and logical approach to my condition.
Excellent service from the first meeting with Mr Patel to my discharge. He explained everything regarding my knee surgery very clearly and was always available for my questions. Surgery was a success and recovery time went very smoothly. I would like to thank Mr Patel and all the associated staff for an excellent experience.
Following a fall , my right hamstring was torn. I was sent to dr Patel whom I found very pleasant , rational in his explanations, thorough in his examinations and a very good listener .i can only express my total satisfaction being treated by him
I had a great experience with Mr Patel. Really clear, concise consultations in the run up to my knee operation and then surgery that went better than I dared to hope. Highly recommend.
Excellent treatment and an excellent outcome
I received excellent, pragmatic and non interventionist care for a minor knee injury. The details of the injury was explained thoroughly to me - in front of scans - options discussed and advice given, all in a relaxed yet professional atmosphere. I strongly recommend Mr Patel as a Consultant Orthopaedic surgeon.
I was referred to Jig by my osteopath following hip pain, after playing sport for over 40 years the diagnosis was they're worn out. Jig gave me an excellent pragmatic solution which I will follow, when the bad days are more frequent than the good ones, then it's a new hip. Thanks Jig, I'll see you in a few years.
Second op within a year to resolve a knee problem, should have to come to Mr Patel first. Very please with the results
Jig did a superb repair to my messily ruptured quadriceps tendon. Not only did he do an excelllent job in surgery but he went to significant pains to ensure that I fully understood the procedure and what to do afterwards in order to ensure the best recovery. Also my operation was delayed due to blood pressure issued he went out of his way to find me a good cardiologist that day. Not only he is exceptionally professional but he really goes the extra mile to look after his patients.
I saw Jig Patel for a torn meniscus and bad wear and tear to my right knee. I appreciate the time he took to explain everything and in the end surgery was not needed and received an injection which improved the pain a lot. Hard physio now but am up to it. Would highly recommend Jig for anyone with knee trouble.
I've been in turmoil about my recent knee injury, as I am a dance teacher and been unable to work for a week, until I was fortunate enough to have an appointment with Mr Jig Patel. He diagnosed my knee injury quickly and confirmed this with arranging an immediate MRI scan. I could not have been more satisfied with my experience and although my injury turned out to be more serious then I had realised Jig was very straight, clear and ensured I understood and was aware of all my options. Incredible man!
Wonderful doctor. He is very knowledgeable yet conservative in his approach. I consulted him for a bad knee; the diagnosis was a torn meniscus but in the end, I did not need any surgical intervention. This was my second time consulting this surgeon, and I highly recommend him.
Was seeing Dr.Patel for the fracture of the pelvis with two follow-up consultations over a period of 4 months. Always very professional, giving sufficient thought and attention to my case and my concerns.
Mr Patel is best in class. My knee was quite a mess, so needed surgery which Jig performed the next day after reviewing my MRI scans with me. I walked out of hospital with minimal pain and its improved every day since (now 2 weeks post op). Jig also very good at managing expectations, explaining very clearly both pre and post op, what he has done and how to manage recovery. I would recommend anyone with knee problems to use Jig. Many thanks Jig, my own outcome was beyond my expectations accepting its still early days.
Mr. Patel provided solid professional service to me. I appreciated his desire not to rush into surgery, but to wait until we could see how my knee recovered. In fact, after three months of physiotherapy he determined that surgery was not necessary. I did have a bit of trouble initially understanding why surgery was not done immediately, which I think might have been communicated a bit better. In general, however, I think Mr. Patel is a solid professional who knows what he is doing. I would not hesitate to see him again.
I found Mr. Patel extremely thorough, helpful and charming. He was re-assuring and gave me confidence that should I require future appointments I will certainly consider using Mr. Patel.
My treatment by Jig was excellent. He interpreted my MRI scan for me in terms I could easily understand; he explained the possible treatments likewise; and recommended what turned out to be the procedure that was very effective. All in all, I always felt that I was the focus of the consutations, not my employer or my work - what was best for me. A lovely man, friendly, respectful, in no way patronising. Thank you.
Excellent overall impression. Took time to carefully examine & diagnose the problem and then very rapidly arranged same day treatment. Good follow up also. Very happy !
Mr Patel did surgery on my wife ACL 10 years ago (ski accident) and she is back skiing for many years and has become a yoga instructor since! I had an issue with meniscus and cartilage and Mr Patel operated and advised me well (albeit rather sternly post op) and I am now well on the recovery path. Very professional and highly recommended.
Excellent bedside manners
I've known Jig for over 10 years and done his appraisal he's an excellent opinion and surgeon !
