On February 10th 2020 at the spire hospital in Macclesfield I had a right hip replacement and removal of (trochonteric plate) due to a serious car crash roughly 13 years ago..... prior to my operation I was in considerable constant arthritic pain and walked aided with a limp ..... prior to my operation I met mr Morapudi and asked for his professional advice , which was to have the hip replaced..... MR Morapudi is a very pleasant gentleman who put me at ease with regards to the procedure, if I am honest I had every faith in his ability and as a result when the day of the operation came I was calm and ready for the operation..... Mr Morapudi is a credit to himself and to his profession and I would highly recommend him and his team in a heartbeat...... I’m 48 years of age and thanks to the professionalism,dedication, knowledge of mr Morapudi I’m free from pain , and able to enjoy a quality of life again .personally I cannot thank mr Morapudi and his outstanding team for my speedy recovery enough ,but I’m going to ...THANK YOU MR MORAPUDI you’ve given me back a pain free life of which I’m eternally grateful for.
Have been most impressed with the operation and the surgeon who preformed it couldn't ask for better person.
Very pleased with me new hip and very neat stitching.
Very pleased with the opp and the people taking care.
From the onset Mr. Morapudi was very clear about the operation he was going to perform on my knee. I was a nervous patient and Mr. Morapudi waited to meet me before I went into anaesthetic, this was extremely reassuring for me. My overall experience has been thorough, with clear communication and care. Thankyou very much.
Mr Morapudi : Absolutely Superb.From beginning to end, I could not have asked for more. At my first meeting the procedure was explained in a way that filled me confidence in the man. The ”aftercare” went further than I expected insomuch that during my stay Mr Morapudi popped in to see me morning & evening. I will certainly be recommending Mr Morapudi to anyone with similar needs.
Mr Morapudi was pleasant and efficient and I trusted my procedure with him implicitly. After 5 weeks, I feel well on the way to recovery with much hope and excitement for the future, with my new bionic hip!
Excellent, can't praise him highly enough

Mr Mirapudi was absolutely fabulous, very kind and very thorough throughout
Mr Morapudi is quite simply wonderful. He is clear and informative also friendly and kind
Mr Morapudi was empathetic from my first clinic appointment. I was in severe knee pain from osteoarthritis but was very overweight. He explained the risks of surgery, and after I managed to lose 12 kg, he agreed to perform the knee replacement and I was admitted to Macclesfield Hospital on the Enhanced Recovery Program. Mr. Morapudi came to speak to me prior to the surgery, and again afterwards, which was very reassuring. The surgery was pain free with spinal anaesthetic. I had a problem with low blood pressure and bladder retention but the nursing staff were excellent. The physiotherapy team were tough but encouraging and I went home walking on crutches 3 days later. I completed my exercises daily and with physiotherapy was walking unaided 4 weeks after surgery. The surgery scar has healed well. It is 7 inches long, but I have very large knees, so just shows Mr. Morapudi's surgical skill!
On arrival at the Regency hospital l wasn’t to sure how things would go, how ever the staff greeted me and made me very welcome had lots of time to listen to how I felt, Mr Morapudi visited me and explained the procedures and made me very relaxed. The complete team did a very good job to help me through the whole operation and recover, l can’t thank them enough also after care was excellent
The skill and care has given me my life back, many thanks
Excellent very nice and polite, excellent recovery

Excellent treatment, Pre post-operative care. Good bedside manner
Was very happy with all the staff and the Doctor was fantastic. Food lovely and the place was clean.
I have been treated in August. I have been very satisfied with both procedures experiences. The risks and outcomes were clearly explained on all occasions. All questions and concerns were addressed at all times.
first class service
I thought my treatment was very professional I did not want the spinal, which was worrying me so had a general which worked for me, my scar is healing well and my recovery had been excellent.
Overall my experience was very good. I do not feel there is anything else needs to be said .
From my initial consultation I was put at ease by Mr Morapudi, who explained to me exactly what was involved with my knee replacement surgery. I was fully satisfied after the consultation that he would do his utmost to ensure I had the best treatment available. I had no questions to ask him.
