    I highly recommend the robotic assisted Total Hip Replacement carried out by Mr Shah and his team!! I was apprehensive at first about a hip replacement, but Mr Shah was very reassuring with a congenial manner - I was at ease from the first consultation, where he immediately diagnosed my problem and discussed options - we eventually went for the robotic assisted total hip replacement. My operation was a few weeks later at the Alexandra, Mr shah saw me beforehand and explained everything and I was relaxed in my room beforehand. The actual operation took about 3 hours and when I returned to the room I was pain free(thankfully). Mr Shah visited that evening discussing things and again the next 2 days sending me home after 2 nights. he has a very comforting manner obviously knows his stuff and put me at ease throughout. My follow up appointments were equally reassuring. I highly recommend Mr Shah and the robotic assisted procedure, I have been walking at home without crutches after 4 weeks and taking walks outside without crutches after 5 weeks - I have had minimal pain throughout and from my point of view it could not have gone better. At my first physio appointment I was told that my recovery was extremely good and I needed minimal physio at the hospital, just to follow the exercise routine at home. Overall I am delighted with Mr Shah and the whole procedure.

    Absolutely superb, from the punctuality of appointments, to the operation and aftercare, everything was very professional and well organised. Co-vid did disrupt plans a little but I was re-scheduled as soon as it was allowable, and have nothing but praise for Mr Shah, the hospital and all the staff. A first class surgeon who has given me back my mobility, I would be happy to have my other hip replaced by Mr Shah when it is required, and will happily recommend him to anybody.

    Having an operation is always a stressful experience but Mr Sanat told me what to expect - including the rate of recovery - and reassured my that the prognosis was good to excellent. I asked for the second operation to be delayed as I had a throat infection - and he agrees to this - a great example of listening to the patient. The care after the operation - removal of the staples and physio was very good under Mr Shah's supervision. Can I offer a view of Mr Shah's surgical expertise? Well, the knees are working well, I have no problem with looking after myself and can walk a mile or so. I'm very happy with the outcome. And the scars are minimal. A good call. Only one comment about communication. The balance of what the patient needs to know and should know is very tricky. I would like to have seen a physical model of 'before' and 'after' to see for myself what the operation entailed. Maybe even an animated video. That's all. Mr Shah has done a great job. That's the main message.

    I went to see Mr Shah following an injury to my knee. My initial consultation was done remotely due to Covid-19 restrictions. This was still a professional experience and covered all aspects of a consultation. I was referred very promptly for an MRI scan and then had a face-face consultation to discuss further action. I underwent a knee arthroscopy by Mr Shah due to a knee ligament injury. This was done promptly and everything was explained clearly by Mr Shah before and after the operation. My post op consultation was very informative and Mr Shah talked through what he had done and the recovery plan. I found his overall care and attention to be excellent and he explained things in a non medical manner which made more sense to a non medical person.

    Mr Shah and the team at The Alex could not have done more for me. I've now had two knee replacement surgeries with Mr Shah. He talked me through all the details of the surgery in great detail and post surgery, visited me twice to check I was OK and that I was comfortable. I would highly recommend Mr Shah as a surgeon who cares about his patients and takes time to make you feel comfortable about the procedure.

    From our first meeting I found Mr Shah's manner to be extremely professional and reassuring. Prior to my hip replacement I'd never had a major operation, but Mr Shah put me at my ease, explaining everything in detail and answering any questions I had. I stayed for 4 nights in the Alexander Hospital and Mr Shah visited every day to check how I was progressing. Subsequent appointments have been conducted in his usual calm and professional manner. I feel he has taken care of my best interests at every stage and had it not been for Mr Shah's expertise I would not now have the diagnosis, and subsequent treatment, of osteoporosis I received last year. I am heading for a second hip operation and would be extremely unhappy if Mr Shah couldn't be my surgeon. Many thanks, Mr Shah.

    Mr Shah is wise in his assessment of the moment when a patient is "ripe" for intervention. As a Veterinary Surgeon, I have some insight into orthopaedics and my confidence in Mr Shah was completely justified at operation. He was informative about a post-operative concern that there was a pre-existing local infection of the acetabulum (this proved unfounded). The result is excellent: I have a fully-functioning joint which is completely stable and in which i have full confidence for all my purposes (hill-walking, but not bungee jumping!).

    I had a right hip replacement in March 2020 performed by Mr Shah. Once referred to Mr Shah for a consultation, I was reassured from our discussion that he was an expert in hip replacement. He explained in detail the procedure, the risks and benefits and the likely timeline post operation. The operation and recovery went according to plan. I was pain free within a week of the operation, the wound site healed perfectly within two weeks with no infection and I had no problems with thrombosis (DVTs) side effects. I was able to start gentle exercises over the following 12 weeks. The new hip felt strong right from the start and I am now back to cycling and exercising (rowing and walking) without pain. I have more flexibility in my new right hip than prior to the operation and the exercises provided by the physio team have been very useful. All in all, an excellent experience delivered by an expert surgeon in hip replacement.

    Mr Shah and his team carried out a full knee replacement on my left knee. From the very first consultation to the latest post-operation review, Mr Shah has carefully and patiently explained the surgery and answered all my questions. The operation has been a resounding success in that I gained excellent movement in bending and straightening the knee very quickly after the operation, a matter of weeks rather than months. Now, after 12 weeks I am able to carry out heavy work such as landscaping my garden and painting and decorating. Throughout, Mr Shah explained the necessity to really work at bending, straightening and mobilising the knee and to carry out all the excersises as prescribed. Nursing, Physiotherapy and pain-management support has been particularly good even to the extent that the chronic lower back pain that I suffered over a long period before the operation is now under control due to my improved posture and gait and I am convinced that this will soon no longer be a problem. The whole process has been complicated by the ever-present threat of Covid 19 which was exceptionally well managed by all concerned. many thanks to Mr Shah and his team
