I had problems before my operation and Mr Shah helped me through them. I was extremely nervous about the operation for a hip replacement but I couldn't have been in better hands than Mr Shah and his team.
In my opinion Mr Shah is the ultimate professional. Over several years that I have been a patient of Mr Shah's he has always acted in my best interest not only from a clinical point of view but also by taking into consideration other crutial elements such as the ability to perform my job and quality of life, therefore being able to make an informed decision. In the course of my treatment at Spire and subsequent hip replacement surgery I had the opportunity to observe how Mr Shah'sa fellow members of staff and other patients relate to him and clearly he is well respected and held in high esteem across the board, above all Mr Shah possess a very approachable and down to earth manner and its these attributes as far as I'm concerned which are key to making a patients health care experience a positive one.
Can not say enough about Mr Shah,absolutely fantastic experience,from his bedside manner to his professional approach.
I found having a hip replacement he put my mind at ease with his confidence,I feel honoured to have had him do my procedure.
Extremely pleased with the results after a total hip replacement. 2 months post op and I was back on the treadmill 3 times a week (and still am) and I am now looking forward to the 3 peaks challenge in May which is a 25 mile hike. I have no pain in my hip whatsoever and feel like I have new legs! The man is a genius!
Dr Shah was extremely pleasant to talk to and made me feel very comfortable with the procedures that he would use to replace my hip joint. The operation has been a great success and the follow up care i have received has also been excellent.
I would recommend Dr Shah to anybody contemplating this, or other, procedure.
Mr Shah was very supportive at all stages of my treatment, explaining everything clearly before my operation, visiting me afterwards to check all was well. In particular he examined and reassured me when I returned to the hospital a couple of days after discharge because I was concerned about swelling and bruising even though I had no appointment. Such care is exceptional.
I found Mr Shah very professional & also approachable. Very helpful in explaining the procedure that I was going to have to replace my painful knee
I had both my hips replaced 2017 and 2018. The experience with Mr Shah and his team was outstanding.
Mr Shah convinced me in the first consultation with him to go ahead with the operation and calmed my deep anxiety and fears about having the treatment.He set out clearly the risks but also very importantly the benefits of the procedure. Following the operation just over 6 weeks ago i am getting my mobility back and making good progress to full recovery day by day.I am now pain free from the arthritis in my hip and can fully endorse Mr Shahs recommendation in having treatment,his professional and personable approach and very grateful for his manner in helping me overcome my anxiety and fears.
After having injections for pain in my right knee Mr Shah decided to give me a new knee. His Department gave me a booklet advising pre- op exercises, which I did. The Operation went very well and I was home on the third day.
Physio from the next week and check ups with Mr. Shah. Finally 6 months X-Ray this week showed all perfect. Great.
This is a glowing review for Mr Amit Shah, he did a right hip replacement for me 26/01 2019 every thing was explained before the operation clearly on the day he took a the time to get my legs the same length [ right hip had worn creating a limp ] I've had no post operation problems. Thanks also to his team and staff
After many months of excruciating pain in my right hip, I am now completely free of pain. Mr. Shah replaced my hip about eight weeks ago and I am now fully mobile and able again to enjoy good quality of life, limited only to my age: 78 years.
Upon meeting Mr. Shah, I felt immediately at ease with his friendly, down to earth manner. He explained the procedure in terms which were easy to understand and the possible risks involved. Having a good rapport with your surgeon is vitally important; I would wholeheartedly recommend seeking out Mr. Shah if in need of this type of surgery.
Mr Shah was my surgeon at Spire Hospital where I had two knee replacements in six months. Both operations were very successful and I am now walking comfortably and gardening without any pain. Mr Shah was very kind and caring and I would highly recommend him.
I think Mr Shah is very kind and understanding and goes out of his way to help a patient understand the procedures necessary to benefit health and wellbeing.
I have had two full knee replacements over the last year and a half performed by Mr Shah, the latest just 7 weeks ago. He gave me complete confidence in having the operations. Though I’m sure he has a busy schedule, he has a very personal approach and his manner puts you at complete ease. Having had the knee replacements, I not only have two new now pain free knees but two straight legs.
I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending him to others.
I am a 64 years old ex skater for 45 years in various ice shows around the world. I had a very bad accident on the ice in 1995 and the top of my femur was broken in 4 places after massive surgery I kept on skating professionally until 2007. Pain from arthritis became unbearable that I consult Dr Shah left hip 2014 second hip 2019. I can only recommend doctor Shah he is kind and all the procedure is so well explained. I am now after almost 10 weeks fully operational at work, driving my car, riding my motorbike. Thank you, Dr Shah and all the Doctors and nurses in is the department.
From first meeting until your last, Mr Shah has a happy face and speaks to you as an equal. He is more than happy to explain everything to you and helps you read the x-ray. A very, very good surgeon.
Mr Shah is very good at his job, he was a very nice person and very interested in his work.
I was reassured by him that he wouldn't work out of his comfort zone and Mr Shah was kind and humble enough to send me to other specialists to see if their differing expertise could offer any alternative solutions to my hip problem. This gave me comfort that I had tried every avenue and not just taken the first option. When the other surgeons couldn't offer a better solution than a hip replacement. I returned to Mr Shah for the operation. The operation was a success. Being only 27 years old the real test will be time although 6 months on the replaced hip is certainly much better than the previous hip.
Mr Shah always offered clear advice to all of my questions.
Brilliant knee like brand new. Would definitely recommend to anyone
Mr Shah was considerate, informative and very reassuring during my consultation, operation and subsequent aftercare. I would not hesitate in recommending him to anyone who needed advise support and assistance in understanding their condition and how he can help them going forward.
Mr Shah has replaced my right hip and left knee. Both operations were a sucess. Both wounds healed quickly with no problems. Exercising before and after the ops in my opinion was a great help. I'm extremely happy with Mr Shah and his team.
mr shah is a superb surgeon, and looked after me with the greatest of care, before, during and after my surgery. a true gentleman.
I was really pleased with the whole process. Mr Shah explained everything in a simple and easy to understand manner. He looked after me through the whole procedure which made me feel at ease. I would like to take this opportunity to thank him very much. Everything went as planned and all the team at Spire were exceptional. Many thanks
Mr shah recently operated on my right knee, in fact he performed a complete knee replacement. The op.has been a great success, the physiotherapists are really impressed particularly with my great knee bend. After seven weeks I still suffer some pain and discomfort but this is to be expected. Many thanks mr shah for your very professional treatment.
I received excellent treatment and aftercare Mr Shah explained the procedure very clearly in a friendly and caring manner
I have had left knee replacement and right hip replacement within the last 6 months. Both procedures done by Mr Shah. I cannot begin to express the thanks I owe him. Everything was thoroughly explained from consultation to recovery. He listened to all my concerns and managed to put my mind at rest before both operations. The outcome has been amazing. I am now pain free, both legs same length and I walk unaided. I would recommend Mr Shah to anyone. I thank him for giving me my independence back.
From my first visit Mr Shah has been magnificent. Throughout my treatment Mr Shah explained everything about my condition and what the solutions are very clearly. The treatments have made my life so much better. Thank you
Mr Shah is a very good surgeon and he is very easy to talk to.
I have had an excellent patient experience from initial consultation through surgery and follow-up.
I have had an excellent patient experience, from initial consultation through surgery and follow up. The Clinic was very clean and smart, The staff were efficient and always seen on time.
Mr Shah performed knee replacement surgery on my father (who is 83) Nov 2018 and from the start he was very professional but also very caring and sympathetic to the pain he was in.
Mr Shah after checking on my father following the operation telephoned me to let me know the surgery had gone very well and my father was comfortable, which I found quite lovely and remarkable for a busy surgeon to take the time.
At his review appointment Mr Shah felt it would be ok to get back to normal activities so my father went bowling for the first time this week (something he had previously enjoyed but been able to do for quite some time).
My father found Mr Shah to be an excellent surgeon and a thoroughly nice Gentleman, we would like to thank him very much and also highly recommend him to any future patients, also thankyou to the team at Spire for their professionalism and care during his stay.
I have had two operations with Mr Shah at the Blackpool Victoria Hospital as the surgeon one right THR in June of 2014 and a left TKR in June of 2018, I found Mr Shah to be very caring and thourgh in his profession and with the follow up appointments I had with him, I would highly recommend him for any orthopaedic surgery
I had a total hip replacement in June 2018, Mr Shah did a excellent operation so in fact he signed me off at 6 months rather than 12. I was free from pain directly after the operation. The whole team at The Spire are excellent & I would highly recommend The Spire. A big thanks to all staff for their professionalism & care
In July 2018 Mr Shah operated on me to give me a Total Replacement of my right knee. The anaesthetic method used was by epidural and so I was able to listen to the sawing, drilling and hammering that is necessary under this procedure. It was, of course, totally painless. After I was returned to the ward and Mr Shah came round to check that I was comfortable after surgery. He then (and I found this to be remarkable) phoned my wife at home to assure her that the operation had gone well and that she could now visit me.After two nights in hospital Mr Shah saw that I was now mobile enough to be discharged to my home.At a review meeting in September Mr Shah had my knee xrayed and pronounced himself to be happy with the outcome. I, too, was in a good place, feeling that with his advice and help I was making real progress.We had a further review in January 2019 I assured Mr Shah that I was very pleased with my new knee and that I was close to full recovery. He said that the latest xray [Jan 2019] looked very good and that we would have a further review in August 2019 where he believed that I would probably be discharged from his care. I have been delighted by his enthusiasm and the quality of his surgical skills. I am now pain free and very mobile for the first time for several years [off for a walking holiday in the Lakes on 25 Jan]. If anyone who reads this requires the surgical and social skills of Mr Shah, be assured you will be in very safe and capable hands
Under Mr Amit Shah's care my whole medical experience i.e hip replacement was very positive, A excellent job was done, I was not in a lot of pain which surprised me as I had listened to others that had a hip replacement and they said never again. My wound had healed within two week, even the district Nurse was amazed, . When in Hospital recovering Mr Amit Shah came to speak to me and asked how I was getting on, he was so easy to talk to and put me at my ease saying any problems let me know. A lovely Gentleman. If I have to have my other Hip done and I could choose, then it would be Mr Amit Shah, Excellent Treatment, My New Hip is amazing. Thank you One happy Patient.
After my total hip replacement I was up and about walking with the aid of crutches the very next day. I had my operation on Saturday and returned home on Monday. The chronic pain and limp I had developed had totally disappeared. I am comfortable with my new hip although the site of the indecision was sore for some time. I was amazed to discover the indecision had been glued and held together with steri - strips. No stitches and no sign of infection. I supported muscle building with a set of exercises and was back playing golf after my eight week review. Many thanks to Mr. Shah and his team.
I met MR Shah three years ago when i had a total hip replacement on my right leg.I found him to be an excellent surgeon who always had time to talk to me and explain everything.Last year he did the same operation on my left leg.Both operations were a resounding success and i would like to say Thank You to Mr Shah.I would recommend him to anyone
Very clear in advising the procedures, risks involved for all aspects from pre-operation, admittance, actual operation, aftercare/recovery. I wish that every one I deal with were so efficient in their dealings and my views are echoed by both my daughters and my wife.
I found Mr Shah and his team, nothing short of excellent in all aspects. From the time of my first consultation right through to the end, I was told and explained what would be happening at all stages, even shown my xrays and having them explained to me. This showing and explaining was carried out by his whole. I was treated at all time with respect and professionalism. It was a joy after the let down by my GP over the last twelve months
Mr Shah is a fantastic surgeon and a gentlemen. The staff is friendly and curteous
Thank you! You made this happen :-)
My sincere gratitude for all your hard work on my left hip. With thanks and have a wonderful Christmas
So happy with my new hip. Mr Shah is amazing he was so caring and kind from start to finish and did an amazing job, he has given me a new lease on life . Thank you Mr Shah and team .
Really happy with the treatment I received from Mr Amit Shah. How considerate he was to inform my daughter of the outcome of my operation. I found Mr Shah was such a lovely person.
A very nice man who took his time with me and my family explaining everything to me about my operation.He even took the time to ring my daughter personally to let her know how the op had gone.
I have had 2 total knee replacements done by Mr. Shah and am very happy he has got rid of those terrible painful knees.
I would point out that one has to work extremely hard to get the best results from the operation. I did all the recommended exercises probably twice as many times as I was asked even to the point of giving myself pain. I am so pleased I did as I was able to go back to playing golf after 8 weeks, I was in the gym after 5 weeks and putting as much muscle back as I possibly could. I also climbed Castle Crag in Borrowdale after 10 weeks.
It paid off greatly as I found after 2 or 3 gym sessions concentrating on thigh muscles I had the confidence to come down stairs properly, and was very happy when I managed it ok.
The knees will never be as flexible as the originals but I'm happy to loose some flexibility for a lack of pain. Mr. Shah did warn me well before my operation that things wont be the same as before I.E. you will never be able to sit on your haunches again , But things like this are a small price to pay for painless reliable knees.
My experience with Mr Shah has been second to none. My second knee replacement has been more successful than the first as Mr.Shah told me he has a new method of doing the operation. The anaesthetist for my second operation was also better as there was no rush to lie down after the spinal block went in. He also kept me asleep for the whole op unlike my first op which I was awake for most of the time.
Kneeling down is uncomfortable now but achievable which can be a hindrance in the bedroom department .
All in all I am delighted with Mr Shah as his excellent team who looked after me in all areas and I would recommend anybody with bone rubbing on bone in their knees to have new ones for a pain free life after op.
I have had two knee replacement operations with Mr Shah and cannot praise him highly enough for his skills as a surgeon and the care I received from both himself and his colleagues. Within days I was moving and walking better and can only say this achievement was down to his
expertise and care.
I Have had fantastic treatment from Mr Shah at the SPIRE hospital Blackpool, Mr Shah is in formative on the treatment and procedures and displays an excellent caring demeanour, I would recommend him to future patients who require his services.
Procedure went through fine with no problems as expected.
From the 1st visit i found Mr shah very professional but with a kind manner, he listened to all my problems, and was sympathetic to my pain. He fitted my new knee, the scar is fabulous the knee operation went well, and he came to visit afterwords and informed me all went to plan. I would recommend his talent to anyone, and am hoping for him to do my other knee in the next year or so as soon as this one is fully working.
Mr Shah is an amazing and wonderful specialist in his field. I am returning to work today just 6 weeks post surgery after a knee replacement. After years of pain , I would like to thank him for giving me my life back
From day 1 dr shah highlighted my condition, put me at ease but also highlighting the various options to me on a hip replacement at a relative young age. In the lead up to the operation dr shah was always available & also on the build up in the hospital to the operation was keeping me informed. Operation has gone better than a thought, again aftercare was spot on and now 12 months later I have been discharged with all parties happy with the
outcome of the operation & how the new hip has responded. All in all a positive outcome to a big operation
my latest knee replacement operation was the second performed by Mr Shah, the first being my hip replacement last year. I found his work and after care excellent in both cases. He is a very fine surgeon and a gentleman. I cannot praise him enough.
I have recently had a hip replaced by Mr Shah and his team. He put me at ease from the outset and has been extremely professional and kind throughout. The operation has been a complete success and has given me my life back.
Iv,e always found Mr Shah to be very professional and thorough with all my treatment.He always explains things and shows you what he intends to do. He,s kind and caring he has time for you and your needs,and always made me feel at ease whenever I go for my appointments.
I thought he was very very good
Mr shah operated on me twice this year. Hip replacement in January and knee replacement February. Both operations very successful. My knee was extremely bad with arthritis and my leg deformed. Mr shah was thorough- considerate - listened and performed a minor miracle which has changed my life. I can’t thank him enough
Mr Shah has in jan given me new hip and in September a new knee. Both have healed very well. My leg was deformed due to arthritic knee. I was bent almost double when walking. I was in considerable pain. I now can walk virtually upright with no real pain after only 6 weeks. Mr shah has always been polite- thorough and listened! I think he’s performed a minor miracle on me. Can’t thank him enough.
I am 72 years of age and I recently underwent a full left knee replacement at the spire hospital. the surgeon was the very respectable Mr Shah who headed a proficient and caring team. the operation had to be put back due to a recommendation by the premed, where it was thought I would see a cardiologist. I have played sport all my life including soccer, cricket and rugby. as a result, my knee was a real mess.it was something like 20 per cent out of line with fragments of bone floating about. the operation was not going to be straightforward but I did feel confident in Mr Shah and his team. After three days I was on my way home. as I left the hospital I had met Mr Shah who had informed me that he had just been looking at my before and after xrays.he was very pleased with what he saw, my leg was straight. He was happy with his work which made any worries i had fade away very quickly. my operation was through the NHS and I feel I must comment on my stay at the Spire. everybody who I had contact with in the hospital were without a doubt truly professional and caring. all staff on duty throughout my stay at the spire went about their business with a smile which is very important. Thank you so much, Mr Shah.
Just to say a very big thank you to Mr Shah and his team for taking such care of me. also the nurses and everyone concerned with my stay. I can now look forward to having my life back.
A massive thank you to Mr shah for the care I received at the spire and for such excellent results after all my operations. A great success.
Just to say a massive thank you to all the staff at the spire. everything about my recent stay at the hospital was superb.
Thank you so much for giving me back my quality of life, I am so grateful for everything you have done for me.
