    Explanation (5/5)
    I was recommended to Mr Kumar by a former colleague. I found him to be extremely knowledgeable with regard to upper limb problems. He gave me an excellent and thorough examination, a clear diagnosis together with an explanation of my problems and a suggested treatment plan which involved firstly a decompression of my left shoulder and latterly the repair of a small rotator cuff tear in my right shoulder. Both operations were performed to a high standard and I was advised regarding after care and suitable exercises. My recovery following both surgeries has been without problems and I now have an excellent range of movement in both shoulders. I have been seen by Mr Kumar for follow-up appointments after each surgery and I know I can contact him should I have any future problems. I would recommend Mr Kumar to anyone who has need of an upper limb orthopaedic surgeon.

    Mr Kumar performed an arthroscopic rotator cuff repair to my shoulder, three months ago. I could not be more pleased with the result. I already have a full range of movement and am working on increasing the strength with intensive physio. From the first consultation, Mr Kumar thoroughly explained the procedure and likely outcome and I felt confident that I was in the best hands for the operation. I have no hesitation in recommending Mr Kumar.

    Explanation (5/5)
    Mr Kumar did a replacement shoulder joint for me, it was a stunning success. I regained complete mobility and the pain keeping me awake was gone. I followed his and his teams advice to the letter and did all the physiotherapy I am convinced this helped a lot too. The combined effect was far more than I had dare hope for. I was in and out of hospital in 2 days and recovery was pain free and fast. Very professional yet down to earth and practical. Mr Kumar and his team get the highest recommendation from me.
