I could not fault mr plaha. He made me feel so at ease in the lead up to my surgery . Took time out to speak with me on the phone when I was considering the OP. A really lovely gentle man. My surgery went well. Although I was unable to walk without crutches for a month and it was very painful. I recovered very quickly. I was back to running on week 10 post OP and completed a 10k run, pain free. Really happy with everything. A huge thank you to me plahah and the nurses

Mr Plaha is the most caring, understanding and polite consultant. He listens to you and explains exactly what he is going to do, how it will help you and, if treatment is required, books you in there and then. I would have no hesitation in recommending Mr Plaha.

Explained everything very clearly and answersd all questions in a way i could understand without being patronising. The day of the procedure was relaxed and I was put at ease in a light hearted and friendly manner. This was particularly appreciated as this was my first experience of surgery.

Mr Harbhajan Plaha comes highly recommended. He recently performed a full knee replacement on me - the before and after consultancy experience was excellent, he explained and answered any questions I had with ease and professionalism. He also visited me after my operation o confirm all went well. He is a very nice person, very down to earth who put my mind at rest if I was unsure about anything. I could not have wished for a better consultant. Mr Plaha also performed a carpal tunnel operation on my husbanda few years ago and again the service was excellent.
