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!

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.

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.

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. Thank you.

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 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!

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

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 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.
