“My experience with Mr Jonathon Walczak and Chelsfield Hospital was impressive, enlightening, reassuring and rewarding. I was pleased to totally understand the options of treatment, Xray’s were performed to compare my condition with evidence a year ago. Mr Walckzak was patient, had good skills in reassuring me and giving me plenty of opportunity to ask all questions necessary and I was well prepared for surgery possibly in March! I strongly recommend his professionalism, knowledge, experience and friendly, smiling approach.“

    About

    Mr Jonathan Walczak was born in London and trained at Guys Hospital Medical School from 1981 through to 1987. His post-graduate training included a specialist fellowship in Hip surgery, which took place in 1998.

    Later in his career, he became, and remains, a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of England and a member of the British Orthopaedic Association (BOA). Not only this, he has held the post of consultant trauma & orthopaedic surgeon at Bromley NHS Trust since 1999 and is now employed by Kings College NHS trust

    His private practices are located at the BMI Sloane, BMI Chelsfield Park, BMI Shirley Oaks, BMI Blackheath, Sevenoaks Medical centre and KIMS in Maidstone. Mr Walczak is more very happy to see both self-funded, insured and NJS Choose and book and is open to readily providing feedback care into the NHS when applicable.

    He is recognised by all health insurance companies and has a particular interest in hip and knee replacement and revision replacement, sports medicine including injuries to hips, keyhole knee surgery, knee ligament reconstruction (including Anterior Cruciate ligaments) and calf and foot problems.

    Owing to his personal interests as a keen runner and cyclist, Mr Walczak is conscious of the needs of an athlete and he remains committed to allowing people of all abilities to return to sports and physical activity if at all possible.

    By all accounts, his patient-focused approach to medical care remains a constituent part of what makes his services so sought after. His philosophy revolves around his desire to do the utmost in making an accurate diagnosis and instigate treatment. He is aware that he may not be able to definitively deal with a given problem, but if he cannot organise appropriate care, he has a network of colleagues in other specialities who will be able to assist.

    Mr Walcak: "I pride myself that I and my team are always able to provide a rapid and efficient response to any concern or complication. I feel most strongly that as a Surgeon my responsibility to the patients under my care extends to any problems experienced following discharge, and I feel that I and my team, rather than your General Practitioner, should be on hand to deal with any concerns."

    Mr Walczak immediately genuinely welcomes and makes you feel at ease, from the very first consultation he explains every detail step by step through to a full recovery. After surgery, he visits you to see how you are, amazingly comforting, and offers three more visits to see how you are before signing you off sick. I highly recommend anyone who should need a hip replacement to book an appointment with Mr Walczak, who provides excellent painless surgery and who will give them their life back I am forever grateful for this great man to have taken away my pain I suffered for 2.5 years. Thank you

    I am so incredibly grateful to Mr Walczack for the kindness, care and attention he gave me from my first consultation through to having my operation yesterday.

    I have been very happy with my full knee surgery and aftercare. The scar is healing very well. I found Jonathan's manner to be a bit abrupt at first, but I soon realised that he knew his 'stuff'. Pre-operative, we covered many areas and options and he was very patient with my questions and my hesitation. He answered questions honestly and didn't gloss around the edges, which is what I wanted and respected. Post-operative, he was the same. I would certainly trust him to carry out this process again - without any hesitation.

    Mr Walczak’s honest, open and professional communication is like a breath of fresh air. He instills great confidence and I’ve really appreciated his straightforward explanations of the issues regarding my knee, as well as the proposed treatment. My recent procedure has been followed up with a telephone consultation with Mr Walczak, as Covid 19 protocols have restricted face to face meetings. Within minutes of the phone call I’ve received an email confirming the points of the conversation and what the next steps are. I can thoroughly recommend Mr Walczak, as a great surgeon and as such a friendly and kind person.
