Recently underwent total knee replacement surgery performed by the excellent Mr Saksena. Both during an earlier consultation and again prior to the procedure taking place, Mr Saksena explained fully the nature of the surgery to be performed and the aftercare.
Seven weeks on I am extremely delighted at the progress made so much so that after no more than two sessions of physio I have pretty much a full range of movement.
I cannot thank Mr Saksena and his team enough for everything they have done for me. I feel as though I have been given a new lease of life and hope to be back playing golf shortly!

A hip replacement operation sounds daunting; after all, it can last up to 2 hours and recovery can take several weeks, return to full mobility after several months. My experience at the Highgate Hospital in May 2018, under the expert care of Mr Saksena was pain-free, with only three days in hospital, walking on crutches the day after the operation, and recovering at home. After discharge at 6 weeks, I returned to pain-free driving and breast-stroke swimming. From walking with a limp for a year, and feeling pain after walking no more than 300 m with a walking stick for several weeks prior to the operation, I can now walk without worry as far as I have to. At nearly 70, I am glad I had this operation which has provided me with full mobility and renewed excellent quality of life. Mr Saksena has been caring and supportive at all times.

Very happy the way things has been explained to me. Got all the answers which I wanted to know.
My Hip Replacement was executed promptly with efficiency, tact, sympathy and expertise! I am more than satisfied!
After talking to Joyti Saksena who explained me every thing in detail related to the treatment called stem cell treatment for osteoarthritis of knees. I have confidence the way he discussed with about it.
Extremely caring, considerate & professional from start to finish. The finest, most excellent surgeon I could possibly have had. Extremely satisfied patient.
Professional and most helpful. Takes the time to explain and describe matters in detail. Offers advice and options available.
I have nothing but praise for the professional and caring manner in which I was treated by Mr Saksena. He instilled me with confidence at my initial appointment with him and my hip replacement procedure has been very successful.
Clear explanation of the procedure. Prompt response to questions and requests.
I recently had a total knee replacement surgery to my left knee.
The operation was carried out by Mr Joyti Saksena.
From my initial consultation with Mr Saksena my mind was put at ease he explained the whole procedure , the aftercare / recovery etc .
He answered all my questions regarding surgery etc and I felt I was going to be in good hands.
On the day of the operation once again Mr Saksena made me feel totally at ease prior to procedure .
After the op Mr Saksena visited me to check how i was feeling etc. He took time to explain to my wife what i’d had done and how I may be recovery wise after surgery.
At every step of the way Mr Saksena has been excellent to talk with , I also used the myrecovery app for my iphone he recommends which too was a help.
Extremely professional, helpful & kind manor.
From my initial consultation with Mr Saksena I found him to be very approachable , informative and reassuring regarding the procedure I would need. The hip replacement operation he later performed on me was very successful and he was very attentive at the follow-up consultations. I have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone who needs a hip replacement!
I have had both my total knees replaced done by Dr Saksena with excellent results. His help and explanation were brilliant. I cannot thank him enough and am grateful for all his help in getting back to normal.
I had a consultation this morning with Mr Saksena to discuss my forthcoming surgical procedure. I hadn’t previously met Mr Saksena but he immediately allayed any concerns and anxieties I had, explaining fully the nature of the procedure and after care. I left the consultation feeling very positive about the future and have every confidence in Mr Saksena.
A great character and personality both on a professional and personal level ...
Clinically Mr Saksena is well respected by all his professional colleagues and is most liked by Physio's as he is very pro physio in his MSK approach to managing patients, whether private or NHS Mr Saksena is a gentleman and is most sought after for his clinical wisdom and prompt assistance.
Dear Mr Saksena,
Just a note to wish you a Happy Christmas and to let you know that after your excellent intervention I am able to again run around Trent Park with my boy- it’s a game changer, and really appreciated. Thanks for a painless operation that has made a very big difference. Top work!
Imaging reception staff were great but outpatients reception was not great - lost all registration details and policy number and told me they lost it and I had to call bupa again. Not very professional
To Mr Joyti Saksena,
I am writing to thank you and your staff for the wonderful work you did on my hip replacement. It is so nice not to be in constant pain and its enjoyable to go for a walk now and not dread it as before. I can’t thank you and the staff at the Cavell Hospital Enough.
My knee replacement was a complete success and I am still enjoying my favourite sport of skiing.
I came out of my final physiotherapy session, 9 weeks after the hip replacement, walking the few hundred metres to where the car was parked when I realized I had a spring in my step- a feeling I haven’t felt for years- I now enjoy walking again rather than being something I felt I had to do to keep the joint moving despite the limp and pain
I had a total knee replacement with Valgus Deformity 7 weeks ago, and this gave the surgeon extra work to do, I only have good things to say about this surgery and after care with all staff involved at Chase Farm Hospital, as in my experience I have heard a lot of good and bad things about this type of surgery, Well I can only say that if anyone has concerns about this please try not to worry it is worth while as it has given me a new lease of life to what I had before, and yes the first 2 weeks are the worse, but please do try your exercises, because as they say you only get the real benefit if you are prepared to do your bit. Thanks very much for my new lease of life yet again.
This is a brief testimonial for Dr Joyti Saksena who performed partial left knee surgery on my husband, the surgery itself has proved to be a success and my husband is now on the way to making a full recovery. Dr Saksena was at all times extremely professional, approachable and he is obviously a surgeon with extensive knowledge and experience.
I am very grateful to Dr Saksena and his team for looking after my husband so well during this difficult time.
With warmest regards and deepest thanks.
A Hip Op Experience.......
I’m a seventy three year old man that along with other physical leisure activities enjoys a round of golf two or three times a week.
Over the last two years that pleasure was marred by the constant pain experienced from an osteoarthritic hip and I could therefore only play with a cocktail of pain killers and anti-inflammatory tablets to mask the condition. Over time the pain simply increased. Enough was enough and having been recommended to Mr Joyti Saksena, I sought his help in getting back on the road to normal fitness. A couple of weeks after the initial consultation and X-ray results, Mr Saksena and his team performed a total right hip replacement.
It is my opinion that Mr Saksena is a professional of the highest standard and his positive, caring and calm demeanour alleviated any concerns that I may have had regarding the procedure, aftercare and subsequent follow up.
I am now so pleased to be able to say that the whole experience was significantly smoother and pain free than I had ever imagined. There was a little post-op discomfort but that never migrated to pain at any time. I was able to tackle the required mobility exercises, as an inpatient, two days ahead of schedule and subsequent discharge. Simple exercises now form part of my daily routine to full fitness. Seven weeks post op and I walked the course playing my first pain free gentle round of golf. My strength and flexibility improves weekly so the bottom line is that I’m now pain free and one very happy bunny!
Dear Mr. Saksena,
You performed a partial Meniscectomy at Highgate Hospital in late April.
I would like to thank you for your handiwork. The problem has been entirely resolved and I am pretty sure that is down to the procedure rather than the passage of time as the condition persisted during the prior two months. Some part of that is surely down to your skill.
In September 2014 I underwent a knee replacement operation
Mr Joyti Saksena was the consultant/surgeon
Mr Saksensa was an amiable professional with a calming influence and caring nature
His team were friendly and supportive
My knee replacement was a complete success and I am still enjoying my favourite sport of skiing
Dear Mr. Saksena
You did a total knee replacement on my right leg on 22nd March in the Kings Oak Hospital and it has been very successful. I am now almost pain free with the knee getting stronger each day. I would like to thank you and your excellent medical team for doing such a neat job. I would also like to thank the wonderful nurses at the hospital who were always cheerful and efficient.
Dear Dr Saksena and Team
I am writing because I had two knee replacements in 2015, one in March and the other in October, both done by you and your Team.
I would like to just sincerely thank you for the job you did on my knees, both of them. Before I had my knees replaced I was in constant pain, which had been the case for nearly 5 years. I was so bad that I often wondered what the use was in living! Now, nearly 2 years later, I feel I have my life back. I can now walk without pain and every single day, and I mean every single day, I walk the roads that I walked pre-operations and I remember the pain that I was in for every small distance I had to walk. Now, I walk with a smile on my face and a thrill in my heart, so very grateful for having the freedom to enjoy walking once again. I also have great fun going with the grandchildren to the park and playing with them, which before the operation was impossible as all I could do was basically sit and supervise them. So there too there is a huge change.
So Dr. Saksena, you and your Team have given me my life back. I am smiling again and feel like I have a future to look forward to. I know this may sound over the top, but I want you to know that even though this is your job, you - and your whole Team - have changed my life 100% and I will forever be grateful for my new knees.
May you continue to help hundreds of others.
Having recently undergone a full left knee replacement I am 100% satisfied with everything Mr Saksena and his team at The Cavell provided.
I was given plenty of advice both before and after my surgery, which was very reassuring.
My recovery has been rapid with minimal pain and within 8 weeks I had full extension and 130 degree flexion back in the knee.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Mr Saksena as an orthopaedic surgeon
I was very fortunate to be referred to Mr Saksena as an NHS patient and was very impressed with the treatment and care provided by Mr Saksena and the whole team at Cavell Hospital. Once discharged, someone was always available to talk to you and an appointment was made immediately if you needed to see a nurse (which I did several times, due to a normal discharge from my wound). The entire staff were all friendly, cheerful and efficient. The scar is very neat and after 7 weeks I am walking well and just using a stick outdoors.
