    Explanation (5/5)
    Mr. Kumar is highly skilled and experienced surgeon. At the same time he is very calm and patient human being. At every step of my treatment by him I felt assured that I was in capable hands. The outcome was great too. The excruciating pain I felt before surgery disappeared within weeks with full joint function returning.

    Explanation (5/5)
    I have had 2 knee replacements by Mr Kumar in 8 months. Originally, I was extremely nervous however on my first consultation Mr Kumar inspired confidence & explained everything answering questions about my concerns. I had planned on going to see 3 different surgeons, but on meeting Mr Kumar I realised I didn't require anyone else's opinions. He was man for the job! On the days of the operations, I wasn't sure what to expect, once again everything was explained putting me at ease. Mr Kumar is a brilliant surgeon! I have 2 straight legs now, minimal scaring & more than anything I am pain-free. These 2 new knees have been lifechanging, walking confidently not looking for a parking space close to where I needed to go! Being able to go on holiday with our Grandchildren &doing things they want me to do! I was back in the gym after four & half weeks. So, as you can imagine I am delighted.

    Mr.Kumar, is a gentleman, and an excellent surgeon. He explained everything to me and always asked was there any questions. It’s only seven weeks since my knee replacement and my scar is so neat and fading fast. I am having my other knee done as soon as I can and wouldn’t go to anyone else but Mr. Kumar.
