I would definitely go back to Mr Vedi. I found Mr Vedi very straight-talking and realistic – he tells you as it is to manage your expectations. He is also someone who takes time out of hours to come back and see you - as he really cares and is very patient-led. I am positive I can now start a long-term rehabilitation programme on my own which would not have been possible without this operation.
Despite having a number of interventions, I was still unable to sit down. Through Mr Vedi’s recommendation of having Shockwave Therapy and PRP treatment, he has finally made it possible for me to endure less pain and sit down for longer periods. I found Mr Vedi to be very informative, clearly explaining the options available and I found him to be incredibly helpful. I intend to carry on seeing Mr Vedi intermittently, as my condition is one that needs to be managed ongoing.
My operation was a real success and after surgery I was able to walk without crutches. Mr Vedi explained everything thoroughly and I felt I could really trust him and what he said. He made me feel at ease and completely safe. Now, ten weeks after knee replacement surgery, I’ve got my life back, thanks to Mr Vedi and can do all the things I used to do before – I can drive, walk around a supermarket easily, and am loving being back at the gym.
I had a right total hip replacement performed by Mr Vedi in 2017 and was delighted with the result. When I needed the same procedure on my left hip two years later I returned to see Mr Vedi. Once again the result is absolutely fantastic. I am now eight weeks post-surgery and can drive and go for long walks without pain. I would like to thank Mr Vedi and his team for all their care and professionalism and would recommend him to anyone facing hip surgery.
My experience was very, very good with Mr Vedi. He is so charming, friendly and calm that I was not frightened at all and felt completely reassured. If my other hip went, I would definitely go back to Mr Vedi.
I would definitely recommend Mr Vedi as he is so charming, pleasant and approachable. He is completely honest and straightforward - telling you both sides of the story – the good and the bad, so you can make your own informed decision. Thanks to Mr Vedi, I have my life back – and am more positive about what the future holds. I can garden once again and play with my one-year-old grand-daughter – two of my absolute passions.
I was so impressed with Mr Vedi. He’s very honest and straightforward but obviously deeply compassionate and cares about what he does. I feel I am back facing the world as my old self again. If I hadn’t of had the operations, I would probably be reliant on a mobility scooter by now. But instead, I’m back swimming and I can walk 2-3 miles a day. Thank you so much Mr Vedi.
I had my second hip replaced this year - both operations were performed by Mr Vedi. The first operation was last year and the second one was done in September this year. I cannot thank Mr Vedi enough, both operations were successful, and my recovery was speedy and virtually painless.I can now follow my passion of clay shooting once again pain-free.
The operation (knee arthroscopy) has made a massive difference to my life. I couldn’t do anything before but now everything is back to normal. If I had anything happen again, I would definitely have it done privately and see Mr Vedi.
I finally plucked up the courage to have much-needed knee replacement surgery. I was very, very happy with the outcome and I was pain-free from day one. Mr Vedi is so kind and I wouldn’t hesitate to contact him if I needed any more surgery in the future – I would certainly go back to Mr Vedi.
Mr Vedi, I feel so indebted to you and all your excellent staff. You exude so much confidence in the patient before the operation, one has no qualms about any mishaps. The anaesthetist was wonderful with the epidurals and care given to me; and, of course her team, even down to the trolley porter. I was given so much care and attention I felt I was the only patient in the hospital. Thank you so much and all your staff. I am very grateful to you all.
Thank you for caring for me over my two knee replacements which you carried out for me. I was well informed throughout my care with you enabling me to make my decision to have both knees operated on comfortably. I am noticing the improvement to my quality o life. Thank you again for your care and professionalism.
Thank you for the success of my second total hip replacement – the second procedure has been as successful as the first. I ma now pain free and able to resume all of my activities.
I cannot thank you enough for your care, skill, professionalism and kindness.
Mr Vedi, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your team for the first- class treatment I received at Bishops Wood Hospital. I would highly recommend you and your team.
I am 84 years of age. Until I met Mr Vedi I was in constant pain, unable to walk, miserable all the time. Then Mr Vedi gave me the confidence to have the operation and he gave me a new hip and a new life. I can never thank him and his team for this wonderful gift he has given me. My gratitude to him will never be forgotten. Never hesitate to put your faith in him
I would like to thank you most sincerely for all your help, expertise and kindness in helping me ‘put my hip to rights'
Exactly 5 weeks after my knee replacement surgery, my wife and I boarded a P&O ferry down to the Caribbean for a 24-day cruise. There was a really strong wind force throughout and made the ship very unstable. My new knee was terrific and did not cause me any pain. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and all the staff at Bishops Wood Hospital for the excellent care and treatment I received.
I finally feel I have my life back. I had lost my confidence and my independence. I was being looked after at the age of 40. But now I am over the moon and back to being ME again. I can’t thank Mr Vedi enough – you are a true professional who has passion in what you do. You have the patient’s needs at heart and you truly care.
My whole experience was so excellent and am very grateful to Mr Vedi for making me free of pain. I would recommend that anyone facing my situation should consider having a PRP injection with Mr Vedi.
I now enjoy a quality of life I had thought impossible only a few months ago. The joy of recovery and the sense of renewal have been one of the most profound experiences of my life. I am grateful for the absence of pain and the ability to engage in everyday life with confidence and pleasure. All this was made possible by Mr Vedi - a gifted, talented and compassionate surgeon who identified and corrected a problem with efficiency and great skill.
Mr Vedi said that a successful total hip replacement operation was just 10% down to him and 90% down to me, the patient. But I must say that the 10% performed by Mr Vedi is massive and I can only praise him and his team for the advice, care and attention they gave me. I am so grateful for what you have done for me. I am now walking every day, doing my exercises, back riding my bike and am pain free!
Since having my right total knee replacement, I am delighted with the outcome, No more nagging arthritic pain I can only thanks Mr Vedi and all the staff at Bishops Wood Hospital for such a successful result
In our long journey, it has been all about getting the right advice and the right surgeon. We are so fortunate to have met Mr Vedi. He is extremely professional, and his knowledge is quite astounding. He explained everything so clearly to both of us, giving us that reassurance we needed to hear despite my many issues. The surgery he performed has been completely life-changing for me. I am walking so much better, and I can now get up and down the stairs easily, my hip is pain-free, and at long last, I can finally sleep. Mr Vedi has somehow managed to equal the length of both my legs, prior to the surgery my left leg was 15mm shorter. Now I can buy a normal pair of shoes, without the need for shoe raises – something I didn’t think would ever happen.
Thank you so much for a great job done. I felt totally relaxed and calm throughout the operation. Everyone was very kind to me and the service in the hospital was brilliant.
Thank you for everything – for my new hip and for giving me my life back.
Thank you for my new knees. I have a new lease of life.
I had a total hip replacement six weeks ago and I have been pain-free from day one. The soft tissue needs to completely heal, and it can still feel sore, but this has been getting less and less as time passes. I know that the exercises I have been doing have made a real difference to my recovery and are essential. For a couple of weeks, I wondered when things would improve, but then the healing process really kicked in and by 4 weeks I could walk without crutches and was driving short distances by the middle of week 5. I liked and trusted Mr Vedi from my first consultation and am most grateful for his skills and care.
Thank you for the treatment my wife received for her replacement hip. She is now walking very well, and I would ask you to be so kind as to pass on to all the staff at the Clementine Churchill Hospital for all the kindness and attention she received during her stay.
Thank you for the incredible recovery I have made since undergoing the knee arthroscopy. Since injuring my knee playing football and then squash, I had forgotten how it felt to be able to stand, walk and straighten my leg without experiencing severe pain. However, today I am able to go about my daily activities including exercises without the pain that had almost become a part of me. I would like to highlight how lucky I have been following my referral to you. I especially appreciated your honesty, patience and calming nature prior to the procedure as well as the in-depth explanation of what was needed and had been done both pre and post-surgery. I have already strongly recommended your services to my friends, family and any squash club member that experiences a similar knee injury.
Thank you for my new knees – what a difference they make. Getting both done within 6 months was really appreciated. Mr Vedi and the team at Bishops Wood Hospital were first class as were the facilities. Thank you once again to you and all your team. I am extremely grateful.
I have recently had both of my hips replaced by Mr Vedi. Before the operations I was in severe pain, not very mobile, unable to drive and couldn’t work in my garden. The operations were both done with epidural and slight sedation, afterwards the pain from my hips had gone, it was incredible. It’s six months since my last operation and my quality of life has been transformed. I’m driving, gardening and have taken up Pilates. I thank Mr Vedi and the wonderful staff at Bishops Wood Hospital, for their support and encouragement.
My hip replacement surgery was carried out by Mr Vedi at Bishops Wood Hospital. My overall experience was of total satisfaction, starting from arrival right through to the aftercare and physiotherapy. I have now been fully discharged from Mr Vedi’s care, and I’m well on the way to making a full recovery and now look forward to leading a more active life once again. I would like to offer my sincere thanks and gratitude to all involved in my stay at Bishops Wood Hospital.
Thank you for the wonderful way in which you have operated on my knee. To date I have not suffered any post-operative pain, nor did I use any painkillers whatsoever. My knee is completely free to do whatever I want. I can only attribute this situation to your knowledge and expertise in the matter for which I am most grateful to you.
Six months after my total hip replacement, I must thank you, the hospital staff, nurses, physio and your secretary for the prompt, kind and helpful attention I received. The operation and my three-night stay at Bishops Wood Hospital was an excellent experience. Should any of my friends or acquaintances start complaining about their hips, I will unhesitatingly suggest they get in touch with you. I am back to the hobbies I had become unable to do – walking, sailing, gardening etc. Many thanks Mr Vedi.
My experience, both as an in-patient at the hospital, and during the aftercare, was very satisfactory. Mr Vedi was attentive and gave me detailed explanations about the procedure and post-operative treatment. I would have no hesitation in recommending Mr Vedi and Bishops Wood to anyone who enquires.
Thank you for your expertise and your kindness.
Thank you for your expertise that enabled me to have such a good report today. I can only reiterate the words of a neighbour seeing me walking for the first time since the operation – ‘what a transformation’. You have given me back the independence that I now value even more.
I would like to thank you very much indeed for the thoroughness with which you examined me and diagnosed the loosening of the joint, and then sent me for tests, and finally recommended the one-stage course of treatment which has now been followed. I have received the highest quality care. I am very happy to be rehabilitating and to see the leg resuming its normal shape and stability.
After 10 years of constant pain which had been suggested was a ligament problem, a new Doctor at my GP surgery felt my problem was more likely to be my hip. I met with Mr Vedi, who, after a thorough examination and X-ray confirmed that I needed a full hip replacement. This was carried out at Bishops Wood Hospital. Under the care of the excellent staff and Mr Vedi who gave me great confidence, I am six weeks later, free of pain and looking forward to a more active life once again. I can highly recommend Mr Vedi and his team, for their professionalism and empathy in the care of their patients.
Mr Vedi – thank you and your very special team for all you have done for my husband. His care has been second to none and I truly believe he couldn’t have had better care anywhere else.
I just want to thank you and your staff for the way you have looked after me during my stay for my hip replacement surgery. You have all been so caring, cheerful and professional making my stay at Bishops Wood Hospital as comfortable as possible. Nothing has been too much trouble.
Under the care of the excellent staff and Mr Vedi who have me great confidence, I am free of pain and looking forward to a more active life once again. I can highly recommend Mr Vedi and his team for their professionalism and empathy in the care of their patients
Thank you for performing my successful hip replacement. The surgery has transformed my life. Six months on from surgery, I am dashing about everywhere, walking miles and even dancing. I would recommend Mr Vedi and the surgery to anyone.
After consulting you regarding significant knee pain I had been experiencing, you discovered damage to the meniscus. Due to your expertise, excellent care and advice, I was fully mobile in no time at all. I am extremely grateful for the extraordinarily high level of all-round care that I received.
Mr Vedi replaced my right knee ten years ago and my left knee 9 weeks ago, both excellent. Mr Vedi is a fine surgeon.
Mr Vedi has transformed my life. I’m so much more confident driving on my own and I am even able to drive to see my brother who lives 90 miles away. Thank you, Mr Vedi
I would like to thank you a million times over for the excellent care and concern I received from you. I had suffered for a long time in major pain and you have given me my life back. I am completely pain free. Thank-you so much Mr Vedi.
I had a hip replacement mid-January. I am, at the end of February, pain free, driving and have even walked over 4 miles unaided. Thank you for your skill and the wonderful nursing at Bishops Wood Hospital
Mr Vedi gave me a Total Hip Replacement three years ago. From my first consultation with Mr Vedi I felt confident in him and the outcome of the operation fully justified my first impression. I have nothing but praise for his skill and efficiency.
