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 .

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%.

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

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!

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 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.

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'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!

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.
