Dear Mr Patel, I would just like to say a sincere thank you for the excellent treatment I have received over the last few years. You and your team have given me first class service and you in particular are a first class surgeon and a perfect gentleman. I especially looked forward to your welcoming smile on my visits

Very thorough with his explanations to me, and very kind too. Nursing staff were more than kind, and patient, and altogether, it was a good experience, and I am now pain free. I cannot thank Mr Patel enough, as I have had a rapid recovery, which I am sure, is down to his skill and expertise.

Hip operation performed 4th June 2019 at Kendal hospital. The total hip operation has restored my being able to move without pain and to undertake outdoor activities...walking and gardening and the healing of the wound has been everything I had hoped for. I am absolutely delighted with the end result and my 6 week follow up appointment has been informative and caring. Mr Patel answered all my questions in depth and I didn’t feel rushed or that I was asking something trivial. The whole experience from my point of view has been extremely good and caring. Thank you.

Before I had a consultation I was in quite a lot of pain with my arthritic knee. On attending an appointment with Mr Patel he recommended a total knee replacement. This was arranged for an operation in Kendal. The treatment I received was excellent from start to finish. Mr Patel was very thorough and explained everything to me. He has a very friendly manner and answered any questions. As far as I am concerned the operation went very well and 7 weeks later I am ready to try golf again and go to the gym.

Mr Patel has replaced both my hips through having osteoarthritis, the first one was two and a half years ago and from the operation I have had no pain. The wound is hardly visible and I was walking without crutches by six weeks with no limp . I have within the last month had my second hip replacement and the outcomes have been just as successful . The support during and after surgery from Mr Patel and his team was second to none , everything was fully explained as last time . My wound has healed well and I was walking without aids within four weeks and have been pain free since the operation . I cannot speak highly enough about the care that Mr Patel and his team gives

From my first appointment I have been impressed hugely with Dr Patel and left the initial appointment feeling I had been listened to and was under the care of a professional that really cared about my situation and that wanted to do his best to help me. His manner is friendly informative and patient and answered every question with clarity and honesty. The quality and success of the operation is, I’m reliably informed a total success and has already made a huge impact on my life going forward. Immediately following my operation Dr Patel attended my bedside to tell me the procedure had been a success and that now he and his team were here to look after me in recovery and that impressed and reassured me. Now after 6 weeks I once again have been in consultation with Dr Patel as out an patient and again find him a pleasant and humble professional. I consider myself to have been extremely lucky to have been referred to Dr Patel and my treatment regardless of being a NHS referral has been first class and carried out by a consummate professional.
