“Mr Shenava performed my first hip replacement in 2009, he was the only one of the consultants who came to review his patients daily after the operation. I was impressed and felt cared for. That operation and a subsequent operation on the other hip in 2020, have proved to be very successful. Following the 2020 operation I have had a comprehensive telephone consultation (Covid restrictions in place) and a face to face appointment. Mr Shenava is very thorough with the information he gives and is prepared to listen to all concerns raised, even those concerning muddled appointments! I have recommended Mr Shenava to several friends, whose experiences have justified that recommendation“

    About

    Yathish Shenava is a Consultant in Trauma & Orthopaedic Surgery at Queen Elizabeth Hospital and Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust in London where he holds a specialist clinical interest in trauma, hip, and knee surgery; a position he has held since 2005.

    Yathish began his training in India, completing his residency in Mangalore and a lectureship in Trauma and Orthopaedics in St John’s Medical College Hospital in Bangalore in 1994. After moving to England in 1995, he began his Specialty Training across various hospitals in the South Thames Deanery, gaining invaluable experience in paediatric, spinal and upper limb surgery across Canterbury, Margate, and Ashford.

    A limb reconstruction fellowship at King’s College Hospital in 2001 gave Yathish skills in managing complex complex fractures and deformities, and a further fellowship at Stanmore’s Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital developed Yathish’s expertise in hip and knee arthroplasty before completing the Specialist Registrar years at Guy’s and St. Thomas’ Hospital in London.

    Alongside his clinical work, Yathish is an active lecturer and clinical teacher, educating medical students and foundation year trainees, as well as surgeons enrolled on the FRCS (Ortho) course at King’s College Hospital London. Yathish has published widely in the research areas of knee arthroplasty, rotator cuff repair, and plate fixation for femoral fractures. He continues to research and work in these fields and is passionate about translating this work and experience to bedside care.

    The overall experience with Mr Shenava since the start of my injury has been truly fantastic. On a number of occasions, Mr Shenava made extra effort to visit me during appointments with the nurse to check my progress. This has made my experience a lot more personal/tailored to me. I feel extremely lucky to have had Mr Shevana as my consultant. I would highly recommend Mr Shenava!

    On my first appointment with Mr Shanava he explained everything to me so that I was completely clear on what was happening, and he suggested a steroid injection into my left knee after studying the xrays. This I agreed to and on my next appointment he carried out this procedure. Within a few days I was free from pain and have been ever since. Due to Covid 19 we had a telephone conversation this morning and he was pleased with my progress. He is friendly, polite and professional

    At all times from my first referral to post-operative care, Mr. Shenava has taken great care to explain all aspects of his diagnosis, recommended treatment, expected outcome and possible complications, but always in a reassuring and professional manner. At the outset, he directed me to a very useful website where I was able to see exactly what was involved in the recommended procedure. His attention to detail was demonstrated by the way he sent me for an additional X-ray and a scan to confirm his diagnosis and inform the operation, and also by his post-operative visits to the ward to check on my recovery and the healing of the wound. He has been very honest about how beneficial the operation would be. but also its limitations, and his advice on exercise and the care to be taken has been invaluable during recovery. I had no pain following the operation, the scar faded quickly, and the recovery went very smoothly. I left hospital three days after the operation and was walking out with a crutch within a week. Mr. Shenava noted that my other hip would need treatment in the future and has kept an eye on its progress. During lockdown when my follow-up appointment was postponed, he rang me at home. I have every confidence in him and would like him to perform any necessary operation when the time comes. I would also note that Staff at the hospital show respect and affection for him.
