Everything first class. The only minor problem I had was leaving hospital with medication that I wasn't entirely sure what it was doing. I had a few anti inflamatory tablets left, but didn't know how powerful they were and how much good they were doing as they weren't named in the pain relief notes. I replaced them with Ibruprofin for a couple of days then stopped using them and all was fine.
I have previously had a knee replacement and am finding the pain associate with the hip replacement considerably less. Biggest problem has been sleeping on my back and wearing compression socks! These are only minor inconveniences and overall all staff and consultants made the experience as comfortable as possible. Thank you.
From my first meeting with Mr Shukla he put me at ease with regards to needing a knee operation. He visited me before my operation and again afterwards and explained how the operation went. I then had my follow up appointment where he showed me x-rays of my knee and how much improved things were. I would also like to thank the help I received from Mr Shukla's secretary and all of the staff at the 3 Shires hospital nursing and physio. I would highly recommend Mr Shukla and if needed in the future would hope he would look after me again.
Great advise and really professional.
Highly recommended and should go ahead with this great surgeon.
Have been seeing Mr Shukla for a number of years
and I have found him to be very proffessional and he explains any problems to me in a simple and understandable way. I have complete trust in the way he suggests and carries out any treatment I have .
Opinion based on three visits and operations and a detailed consultation.A very safe pair of hands.Veryknowledgeable. A clear understanding of problems/situations.Clear, easy-to-understand analysesand explanations.
We arrived for our appointment about ten minutes before. Not long after Mr Shukla called both my husband and myself in to see him. He greeted us nicely, and shook our hands.
He spoke to me, examined my operation site, noted that it was healing nicely. He then explained to me about pulling my knee in, said he wanted me to tuck it in so that it achieved a 120 angle degree and also to sit a bit higher and stretch my leg forward and backward, also to continue taking painkillers, as it would be painful especially at night and to continue using the ice pack.
He showed us the before and after surgery photos.
He asked about my other knee, and said he would arrange for me to have an x-ray of both knees and see me again in three months.
Mr Shukla was very professional, gentle, caring, kind and explained all in detail.
At the end of the consultation, he shook both my husband's and my hands. We thanked him for everything and said goodbye.
I visited MrDivyang Shukla reguarding pain my hip, however from his examination, verbal assesssment and X-rays he felt that the pain maybe back related, therefore he requested an MRI scan. He explained in detail clearly the results , discussed further examinations and investigation to find the route of the cause of my pain.
Explained clearly and honestly.
Mr Shukla has done his very best for me and has given me excellent treatment. He has been extremely helpful and I appreciate his concern and disappointment in resolving my case.
I have been fortunate enough to have been Mr. Shukla's patient for two separate arthroscopic procedures (arthritis in both AC joints); when the second diagnosis was made, I specifically requested to be placed under his care. Always and at every point, Mr. Shukla has been eminently professional and extremely polite, informative, and engaging. Perhaps more importantly, the surgical outcomes have been very positive and precisely in line with the expectations set pre-op. I would have no hesitation, should the need arise, to again be under Mr. Shukla's care - indeed, I would again seek it out - and I can most heartily recommend him.
Mr Shukla provided a very good explanation of my underlying problems, the course of action to remedy and treatment. Post surgery on both my shoulders I am now well on the road to recovery under his care. I would recommend his services to anyone.
I have found Mr Shukla a surgeon with a wonderful personality. He shows that he cares for your pain and explains what he thinks what is best for you by showing what is wrong and how he would like to fix it. I think he is blessed with a wonderful gift.
Excellent consultation extremely professional .
Excellent surgeon very pleased with results of operation, very professional
May I say a very big Thank-you to Dr Shukla, for once again taking time to see and help me with my replacement hip. The operation was very successful, and seems to be healing quicker than the previous hip which I had done in 2015, also by Dr Shukla.
Every meeting I had with Dr Shukla felt it had the "personal touch", prepared to actually listen and help, and he always gave the strong impression that he was willing to bend over backwards which he delivered both times for me!!
I can not recommend this gentleman enough to perform a hip replacement, he is second to none, and again he has given me a new lease of life....a second chance.
Than-you!! Thank-you!! Thank-you!!
I was very pleased how Mr Shukla made me feel completely at easy and explained every thing very clearly about my health problem and about the operation He was going to perform. This also applies to the follow up appointment that I had.
Excellent service from Mr Shukla and all his team at Woodlands hospital from diagnosis to discharge... everything explained all the way through and made me feel very at ease .. would not hesitate to recommend for hip surgery .. many thx my life is back on track ...
Mr Shukla immediately put me at my ease. He was charming, listened intently to what i had to say and then carried out a thorough examination including going over the scans with me.
He explained to me in a very clear way what the issues were and the possible options for treatment.
On conclusion I left the consultation much more relaxed and informed about my condition, what I need to do and the possible way ahead.
Mr Shukla took his time to explain my condition and formulate a plan which I understood
This is the second time l have been to see Mr Shuka and l found him as previous visit to be very efficient and informative and went into great detail to show were my problem was and what treatment that he recommended On this second visit l specifically requested to see Mr Shukla because of how my previous operation was dealt with a satisfactory outcome
Very professional and clear explanations of the condition and the operation itself. After op consultation good
Excellent treatment and very thorough
From my first consultation I have had every confidence in Mr Shukla. When I was in my room awaiting to go to theatre Mr Shukla came to see me and explain what would happen, this put me at my ease. This meant a lot as 9 years previously when I had my right knee done I had been very scared. Mr Shukla came to see me after the operation to check I was ok. It is now 6 weeks since the operation and I have been back to see Mr Shukla, he checked on my progress and made sure I was doing my exercises and was aware of what to do to further my recovery. It is also a nice neat scar.
My experience with Mr Shukla was excellent he found out what my problem was and talk me through how he could help me he explained everything so I understood what was going to happen. When I saw him post op he then explained what he had done. He is very pleasant which a big help as I was very nervous and this put me at ease. I am very grateful for all he as done for me.
I am in my 70s and had never had an operation before. I was absolutely petrified. Mr Shukla put me totally at ease with his confident and reassuring manner. He is very caring and truly looks after his patients very well. He has a lovely bedside manner that ensures your experience is extremely positive and worry free. I would unreservedly recommend Mr Shukla.
I found Mr Shukla to be very understanding of my hip condition. He examined my xrays and my hip physically and could tell I am having serious mobility problems. Whilst I suffer minimal pain when at rest I am unable to walk without extreme pain and the aid of a stick. Mr Shukla was very appreciative of this situation and knows it will only get worse without surgery sooner rather than later. He also said that my limp is putting pressure on what until now has been a very successful knee replacement on my opposite leg. I found Mr Shukla to be very courtious and reassuring.
Highly intelligent consultant with good listening skills. He thinks laterally to diagnose the problem - highly recommend!
Mr Shukla saw me very promptly , expertly and quickly diagnosed the problem ,gave a He is to operate shortly and I have every confidence in him.balanced set of options to me . He telephoned me at home once he had seen the x-rays which reinforced his recommendation.
