I consider myself very lucky to have been under the expertise of Mr Pradhan and his team. I cannot thank everyone enough for making what I thought would be a difficult time very easy and totally pain free!

Being in my early fifties and running my own business, I cannot afford time off work. I had been putting up with pain in my leg and hip for several weeks and because of this I had developed a limp. I went to see my GP and I was referred to Mr Nikhil Pradhan, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon.
At my consultation Mr Pradhan carried out all the necessary tests and he came to the conclusion that I wasn’t ready for a joint replacement and as I didn’t think my pain was too bad we decided that I would go back to see him if the pain got any worse.
Over the next few weeks the pain got considerably worse, to the point that I could only walk short distances and this had begun to affect my work I contacted Mr Pradhan and returned to see him for a further consultation. After a scan I was devastated to learn that my joints had deteriorated very quickly and I needed a total hip replacement. I was worried about the time I would have to take off work and how it would affect my lifestyle, so I decided that I wanted the procedure done sooner rather than later. My consultation with Mr Pradhan took place on the Thursday and I was booked in for the operation the following Tuesday!
Following the procedure I came out of hospital after five days and I returned to work in less than three weeks, I know I shouldn’t have done this but I felt so good and I was extremely careful.
Ten weeks later I went to Spain with my friends and they didn’t even notice my scar…the neatest ever! I consider myself very lucky to have been under the expertise of Mr Pradhan and his team. I cannot thank everyone enough for making what I thought would be a difficult time very easy and totally pain free!
