Mr Patel, thank you so much for performing my operation last September. It seems a while back now and I am so pleased that long last my body is beginning to belong to me again. I realise there is still a lot of work for me to be done, but there is now hope for a walking future. I have so, so missed the ability to walk freely and that is my main aim in life at the moment. Thank you again and thank you for having such a wonderful team at the BMI Hospital-it certainly mattered to me.

I tore my acl playing football and was seen by mr Patel very quickly, he immediately told me the situation and explained everything throughly. He explained the procedure he would have to do to repair the damage and gave me all other options as well. I took his advice and on the operation day I felt very comfortable and well informed on what was going to happen. The operation was very successful and I now feel a lot better and can proceed to get fully back to how I was.

Very thorough with his explanations to me, and very kind too. Nursing staff were more than kind, and patient, and altogether, it was a good experience, and I am now pain free. I cannot thank Mr Patel enough, as I have had a rapid recovery, which I am sure, is down to his skill and expertise.

Hip operation performed 4th June 2019 at Kendal hospital. The total hip operation has restored my being able to move without pain and to undertake outdoor activities...walking and gardening and the healing of the wound has been everything I had hoped for. I am absolutely delighted with the end result and my 6 week follow up appointment has been informative and caring. Mr Patel answered all my questions in depth and I didn’t feel rushed or that I was asking something trivial. The whole experience from my point of view has been extremely good and caring. Thank you.

Before I had a consultation I was in quite a lot of pain with my arthritic knee. On attending an appointment with Mr Patel he recommended a total knee replacement. This was arranged for an operation in Kendal. The treatment I received was excellent from start to finish. Mr Patel was very thorough and explained everything to me. He has a very friendly manner and answered any questions. As far as I am concerned the operation went very well and 7 weeks later I am ready to try golf again and go to the gym.

Mr Patel has replaced both my hips through having osteoarthritis, the first one was two and a half years ago and from the operation I have had no pain. The wound is hardly visible and I was walking without crutches by six weeks with no limp . I have within the last month had my second hip replacement and the outcomes have been just as successful . The support during and after surgery from Mr Patel and his team was second to none , everything was fully explained as last time . My wound has healed well and I was walking without aids within four weeks and have been pain free since the operation . I cannot speak highly enough about the care that Mr Patel and his team gives

From my first appointment I have been impressed hugely with Dr Patel and left the initial appointment feeling I had been listened to and was under the care of a professional that really cared about my situation and that wanted to do his best to help me. His manner is friendly informative and patient and answered every question with clarity and honesty. The quality and success of the operation is, I’m reliably informed a total success and has already made a huge impact on my life going forward. Immediately following my operation Dr Patel attended my bedside to tell me the procedure had been a success and that now he and his team were here to look after me in recovery and that impressed and reassured me. Now after 6 weeks I once again have been in consultation with Dr Patel as out an patient and again find him a pleasant and humble professional. I consider myself to have been extremely lucky to have been referred to Dr Patel and my treatment regardless of being a NHS referral has been first class and carried out by a consummate professional.

I have had total replacement of both my left knee (January 2019) and right knee (May 2019) both operations and after care conducted by Mr Patel and his team at Spire hospital, Blackpool. Mr Patel treated me throughout the process with the greatest respect and kindness, listening to and answering any questions. This care and attention extended to Mr Patel’s excellent team at Spire from housekeeping and nursing through to radiology and physiotherapist. The whole process has for me been a positive experience, I am already in less pain then I have been for years and even at this early stage (6 weeks post second operation) I am beginning to be able to resume activities which have not been possible for some time. Mr Patel is not only an excellent surgeon but also a good doctor and very engaging person. I would recommend anybody needing orthopaedic surgery to seek him out,

Mr Patel was very charming, informative and very reassuring. His surgery was exemplary. I was walking without crutches after ten days and walking my dog twice a day within three weeks. Mr. Patel stressed how important doing the exercises was to my recovery and I have done these three times a day which I am sure has helped with my recovery. I cannot recommend Mr Patel highly enough.
