In February 2018 I suffered a knee problem in which it was prone to giving way as I walked. I contacted Mr. Patel for advice as I was going on holiday in March and needed to know if this was a realistic activity. I had suffered from arthritis for several years and the primary outcome of the diagnosis was that I needed a full knee replacement however an injection into the kneecap would probably save the holiday
I had 2 injections in 2018 under his supervision and finally had the knee replacement in march 2019. Throughout this time the guidance and advice was first class. The surgery went well and my recovery compared to some others I know has gone exceptionally well
Mr. Patel would certainly be the Orthopaedic Surgeon I would choose if my other knee requires attention
Excellent !! So pleased I chose Mr Patel as my consultant. He explained everything clearly and in terms that I could understand. He was mindful of my personal circumstances and made recommendations to my treatment keeping this in mind. He is a great consultant.
Very friendly and knowledgeable consultation.
Mr Jig Patel was amazing, I had been to two specialists previously, he treated me and was very professional and friendly, he explained my options and I left satisfied , would highly recommend him to others
I have recently undergone a hip replacement operation performed by Mr. Patel which has been very successful. The standard of care I received has been excellent throughout. The level of skill, expertise and empathy shown by Mr. Patel was impressive and I would highly recommend him to anyone who had need of his help.
I had a successful knee arthroscopy with Jig to fix a meniscus tear and couldn’t recommend him more - fantastic clear communication all the way through the process and fantastic results post surgery. Would highly recommend
EXplained clearly my options for recovery from this condition and exactly what it was.
I have seen Jig Patel three times this year as I have had a problem with my knee. I found him to be personable and thorough. In the event, I have not needed surgery but will not hesitate to see him again if the problem returns.
I saw Mr Patel for pain I was experiencing in my left knee. The whole consultation and treatment process was very straight forward and Mr Patel and his team were wonderful. They took the time to explain their processes and procedures, the diagnosis, recommended treatment and prognosis at each stage, clearly and made me feel very comfortable and confident with their recommendations and treatment. Mr Patel is a very pleasant and friendly professional and all my questions were answered by him completely, no matter what I asked. He was recommended to me by a friend and I would recommend him to anyone who experiences a similar problem.
Jig did such a good job sorting out my daughter's badly broken leg when it would not heal, he was my first choice of Consultant when I had a constantly painful knee joint. My experience was excellent from start to finish with immediate access to an MRI scan, effective diagnosis and explanation of the problem and decision to perform an arthroscopy. This was followed by rapid booking in for the procedure in London Clinic (which was also very clean, efficient and excellent) and the operation. Following the procedure to remove meniscus I was walking straight away and without pain. Six weeks on I have had no recurrence of pain and can happily walk two miles. Brilliant!
I have recently had a hip replacement carried out by Mr. Patel, my treatment and care were of the highest standard. Mr. Patel explained everything fully before my operation and followed up with very comprehensive after care. I would always recommend Mr. Patel and should the need arise return to him with any future problems.
From the initial consultation mr Patel explained my options and made me feel comfortable. I had an high tibial osteotomy and know feel better than ever. Over the last year mr Patel has been supportive and made the whole process straight forward and left me at ease.
Excellent surgeon and knee consultant. Informed throughout and highly satisfied with post op results.
Brilliant surgeon, left the hospital on the second day after a hip op. Walking well. Very grateful.
I have been referred to Dr Patel after 1 year of struggling with my knee and what proved to be a misdiagnosis from another specialist. From the beginning Dr Patel listened to me and thanks to him I am eventually on the recovery path. I can only recommend him.
Jig was an absolute pleasure to deal with and the outcome of my treatment is absolutely excellent. I cannot recommend him highly enough.
Jig was friendly and professional. He took time to explain the issue, outline the options, and help me make an informed decision. He was practical but encouraging and I really appreciated his friendly manner after traumatic experience with under-resourced NHS staff
Jig provided clear and personalised care, involving me fully in decisions. The admin (arranging investigations and getting results) was also excellent.
Good Practical English advice ! Thanks.
I had the pleasure of meeting and consulting Jig some 8 years ago for extreme pain in both knees. He performed two operations which were very successful. Before the ops MRI scans and XRays were completed to assess the situation and operating was the only option. Everything was explained in great detail and both operations were successful. I would like to thank Jig for benefit of his expertise and professionalism and would highly recommend him to anyone seeking a consultation.
Mr Patel has recently carried out a hip replacement for me. I found his advice and recommendations extremely clear and helpful. The operation was carried out as explained and I have recently had the all clear after 6 weeks. People who don't know I have had the operation don't even notice. Thank you Jig.
I cannot recommend Jig Patel highly enough. His friendly , courteous and professional manner was evident from my initial consultation with him through to the knee surgery itself. The outcome of the operation has been amazing. Jig Patel is a magician!!!
From my first assessment to my final consultation Jig Patel was incredibly, friendly, professional and knowledgeable, all of which helped put me at ease prior to my operation.
I had a new half knee on Jan 11th.My surgeon was Mr Jig Patel .well explained ,efficient and kind
I am really pleased with his ability and professionalism and I am recovering well
Jig was fantastic from start to finish. From the initial consultation through to surgery and aftercare he took the time to explain everything clearly, was the consummate professional and focused not only on the immediate treatment, but on my goal of returning to Rugby after years of playing through chronic knee pain. I cannot recommend Jig more highly!
I highly recommend Mr Patel - he is thorough and sensible. He has a very personable and kind manner and most importantly has taken a sound and logical approach to my condition.
Excellent service from the first meeting with Mr Patel to my discharge. He explained everything regarding my knee surgery very clearly and was always available for my questions. Surgery was a success and recovery time went very smoothly. I would like to thank Mr Patel and all the associated staff for an excellent experience.
Following a fall , my right hamstring was torn.
I was sent to dr Patel whom I found very pleasant , rational in his explanations, thorough in his examinations and a very good listener .i can only express my total satisfaction being treated by him
I had a great experience with Mr Patel. Really clear, concise consultations in the run up to my knee operation and then surgery that went better than I dared to hope. Highly recommend.
Excellent treatment and an excellent outcome
I received excellent, pragmatic and non interventionist care for a minor knee injury. The details of the injury was explained thoroughly to me - in front of scans - options discussed and advice given, all in a relaxed yet professional atmosphere. I strongly recommend Mr Patel as a Consultant Orthopaedic surgeon.
I was referred to Jig by my osteopath following hip pain, after playing sport for over 40 years the diagnosis was they're worn out. Jig gave me an excellent pragmatic solution which I will follow, when the bad days are more frequent than the good ones, then it's a new hip. Thanks Jig, I'll see you in a few years.
Second op within a year to resolve a knee problem, should have to come to Mr Patel first. Very please with the results
Jig did a superb repair to my messily ruptured quadriceps tendon. Not only did he do an excelllent job in surgery but he went to significant pains to ensure that I fully understood the procedure and what to do afterwards in order to ensure the best recovery. Also my operation was delayed due to blood pressure issued he went out of his way to find me a good cardiologist that day. Not only he is exceptionally professional but he really goes the extra mile to look after his patients.
I saw Jig Patel for a torn meniscus and bad wear and tear to my right knee.
I appreciate the time he took to explain everything and in the end surgery was not needed and received an injection which improved the pain a lot. Hard physio now but am up to it. Would highly recommend Jig for anyone with knee trouble.
I've been in turmoil about my recent knee injury, as I am a dance teacher and been unable to work for a week, until I was fortunate enough to have an appointment with Mr Jig Patel. He diagnosed my knee injury quickly and confirmed this with arranging an immediate MRI scan. I could not have been more satisfied with my experience and although my injury turned out to be more serious then I had realised Jig was very straight, clear and ensured I understood and was aware of all my options. Incredible man!
Wonderful doctor. He is very knowledgeable yet conservative in his approach. I consulted him for a bad knee; the diagnosis was a torn meniscus but in the end, I did not need any surgical intervention. This was my second time consulting this surgeon, and I highly recommend him.
Was seeing Dr.Patel for the fracture of the pelvis with two follow-up consultations over a period of 4 months. Always very professional, giving sufficient thought and attention to my case and my concerns.
Mr Patel is best in class. My knee was quite a mess, so needed surgery which Jig performed the next day after reviewing my MRI scans with me. I walked out of hospital with minimal pain and its improved every day since (now 2 weeks post op). Jig also very good at managing expectations, explaining very clearly both pre and post op, what he has done and how to manage recovery. I would recommend anyone with knee problems to use Jig. Many thanks Jig, my own outcome was beyond my expectations accepting its still early days.
Mr. Patel provided solid professional service to me. I appreciated his desire not to rush into surgery, but to wait until we could see how my knee recovered. In fact, after three months of physiotherapy he determined that surgery was not necessary. I did have a bit of trouble initially understanding why surgery was not done immediately, which I think might have been communicated a bit better. In general, however, I think Mr. Patel is a solid professional who knows what he is doing. I would not hesitate to see him again.
I found Mr. Patel extremely thorough, helpful and charming. He was re-assuring and gave me confidence that should I require future appointments I will certainly consider using Mr. Patel.
My treatment by Jig was excellent. He interpreted my MRI scan for me in terms I could easily understand; he explained the possible treatments likewise; and recommended what turned out to be the procedure that was very effective.
All in all, I always felt that I was the focus of the consutations, not my employer or my work - what was best for me.
A lovely man, friendly, respectful, in no way patronising.
Excellent overall impression. Took time to carefully examine & diagnose the problem and then very rapidly arranged same day treatment. Good follow up also. Very happy !
Mr Patel did surgery on my wife ACL 10 years ago (ski accident) and she is back skiing for many years and has become a yoga instructor since! I had an issue with meniscus and cartilage and Mr Patel operated and advised me well (albeit rather sternly post op) and I am now well on the recovery path. Very professional and highly recommended.
A fantastic surgeon and all round great chap. Jig really took to the time to listen to the problems i was having and kept me in the loop throughout my subsequent surgery and recovery. I really felt he cared about my well-being and he referred me to an excellent local physiotherapist for my recovery post-operation. 1 knee sorted, 1 to go! I look forward to coming back to see Jig soon for further work and would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone else.
I was referred to Mr Patel following my physio's concern that I may have a Bakers cyst on the back of my knee following a tennis injury. At the consultation, Mr Patel suggested the symptoms were more akin to a muscle tear but an MRI scan would determine the cause.This was arranged immediately and subsequently he was shown to be absolutely correct. I was very impressed with his professionalism and time taken to explain the situation. I would happily recommend Mr Patel to anyone with knee problems.
Dr Patel was very friendly and professional. He has reassured me on my injury and gave the right tips for complete recovery. (I fractured my fibula playing rugby).
I am now confident in starting sports again.
Excellent care and consultation. Clear explanation on my knee operation and very successful operation.
Outstanding experience. Mr. Patel was extremely personable and explained in great detail what the procedure would include and then post surgery he explained what he saw, showed photgraphs and showed what he did. Great Doctor and great experience!
Dr Jig Patel is the most skillful and patient surgery I have ever seen. I had a really bad tear in my knee for more than 5 years and it was so painful and suffering. After comparing with different specialists/surgeries, I chose Dr Patel because of his honesty and professional advice. After surgery, I recovered quickly because surgeon was nicely done and the physio that Dr Patel referred. Now I feel so much better and the pain is almost gone. Finally, I would like to thank you!
Specialist; aware of sports injuries and what you want to achieve in order to get back to using my leg. Straight to the point; did what he said he would with good result and minimal scar tissue. I would recommend Mr. Patel to other patients with knee problems.
Excellent, informative, courteous, punctual and all round top chap.
Having been to several consultants and having two previous operations I am delighted to have now been referred to Jig. He identified a problem (that three previous consultants have failed to pinpoint) and performed an operation with great success. His bedside manner could not be better; he is warm, kind, reassuring, explains everything in simple terms and always takes time to answer questions and deal with concerns. I have two other friends who have also seen Jig and both also view him in high esteem. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend. Nicholas Barnett
The difference between going private and dealing with the NHS is considerable. Mr Patel was worth every pound. He spent a whole hour with me and explained everything in detail. He even pulled up my MRI and showed me where the problem was. He was also very kind in his manner.
I recently had a knee arthroscopy by Jig Patel. I couldn't have asked for better treatment. Everything was explained clearly to me, there was no waiting time and his manner was friendly and courteous. I had an initial MRI scan which showed the extent of the damage and that an operation was necessary to fix the problem. The operation went very well. I haven't felt any pain, and was up and walking about the next day, and went back to work after 3 days. Its now 10 days on since the op - my knee feels much better, and im looking forward to starting exercise again in a weeks time. If you have any knee problems i highly recommend you see this specialist.
My care with Mr Ptel from before surgery up until my 6 month follow up has been great. He explained my injury in a lot of detail using the scans giving me a better understanding of what needed to be done. Provided the support post op and pre op and can definitely say one of the neatest scars i've seen compared with others. He continued to give me great advice and a realistic outlook on what I would be able to do after the surgery.
I met Dr Patel for the first time a few weeks ago. I was quickly diagonesd me and I got my MRI scan in no time and even more importantly I underwent surgery within a week. 3 weeks later I have fully recovered. It's simply impossible to find a more service minded and competent Doctor/surgeon than Dr Patel. Kind regards, Anders kristiansen
Mr Patel was very professional, friendly and approachable.
Having seen 2 separate consultants to Mr Patel, and on their advice, undergoing 6 knee operations, I reached Mr Patel's office in a suitably dubious mood. Not only did he actually listen to me and my symptoms, but he also tailored the treatment (operation) to where I wanted to be afterwards. I am pleased to be able to say that I know, for the first time in nearly ten years, have a functional knee capable of doing what I ask it to without pain!!
Extremely impressed with Mr Patel; his authority is self-evident and that gave me confidence for knowing that I was in safe hands. He was also keen to explain the downsides of my procedure and did so in a way that I could assess the risks and rewards of following his advice. His advice was also clearly based on what was best for me and without regard to the work this would give him. Every aspect of my care was first class and I will certainly use him again for the next stage of my treatment even though that may be some years away.
I found Mr Patel friendly and informative. He explained everything regarding why I needed keyhole surgery on my knee in a way that I could understand. The pain in my knee has gone. I have no hesitation in recommending him.
Dr Patel operated on my meniscus further to a sports injury in December 2015. The operation was very successful and I recovered mobility very rapidly. I would strongly recommend him.
I just had a knee surgery and I want to express my deep appreciation. It was a professional treatment and mostly it enjoyed the loyal and personal pleasant treatment . Thank you very much
I visited Mr Patel for my knee, the care he provided was professional and he was able to pinpoint my exact problem. After a few visits my knee is 100% I would definitely recommend Mr Patel for knee issues.
Kind, reassuring and informative, and the surgery went perfectly too!
Very pleased. Clear diagnosis despite its complexity, recommended.
Very friendly and informative approach - was made to feel extremely comfortable during the entire process. Could not recommend higher.
Mr. Patel was instrumental in my fast recovery from a broken hip. He is an expert surgical consultant and a great motivator. I highly recommend Mr. Patel!
I approached the London Orthopaedic Clinic on 23/07/2015 for an appointment. I was referred to Mr Patel the very next morning.
Having been diagnosed with a medial meniscus tear in a recent MRI scan i required a consulation to discuss my next course of action. From the moment i arrived at the London Orthopaedic Clinic I felt very well taken care of. During my consultation Mr Patel was very professional in the way he conducted himself and explained both my diagnosis and options for treatment with immense detail and clarity.
Although i would rather not have been injured in the first instance I would certainly recommend Mr Patel to anyone in a similar position and will certainly continue using his expertise until i have recovered.
