“I would highly recommend Mr Gulati. I have received prompt and excellent care from him for the last three years. He is very kind, caring, down to earth and has a lovely bedside manner. Following my total knee replacement eight weeks ago, I am now pain-free and enjoying walking again. This operation has been life-changing.“

    Patient seen for:
    When I saw Mr Gulati for the first time I had been living in severe pain for over two years, and it felt as if I was running out of options that would legitimately fix my problem. He allowed me the time during the consultation to explain my symptoms, how they had been affecting my life, and what I wanted the eventual outcome to be. He was empathetic and kind, which I really appreciated. He told me pretty much straight away that I needed a new hip, and reassured me that it was the solution I'd been looking for, and that I'd be able to do all the things I'd been wanting to do but was unable to. Just hearing that was a massive relief. As I'd been suffering for so long, he managed to get me booked in as soon as possible, which I also greatly appreciated. The surgery went great, and Mr Gulati was on hand to answer any questions I had both before and after. He was clear and concise, and I always felt that I was given the time to talk or ask questions if I needed to, even though I know he's very busy! I couldn't have asked for a better experience, and now, just over 9 weeks post-op, I have my life back. I've felt completely supported throughout the entire experience, and I count my lucky stars that I was referred to Mr Gulati.

    Mr Gulati was an amazing Consultant and Surgeon. He diagnosed me straight away as needing a hip replacement after a year of me trying physio to 'make my hip stronger'. It was a relief to be told that a hip replacement was the only option. He made me feel at ease, explained it all really well and discussed options with me. I felt assured by him every step of the way and felt I could put my full trust in him. I have waited 10 weeks to do this review just to check that everything was fine and I am pleased to say that I am doing really well and in no pain at all. The scar healed so quickly and I am making sure I do all my exercises and getting stronger every day. I would highly recommend Mr Gulati if you needed a hip replacement.
