I had a tonsillectomy with Mr Raj Lakhani in February of 2020 and he was extremely helpful from the get go. He explained the treatment clearly and the procedure went ahead comfortably at the Lister Hospital. During a minor complication later in the week Raj was available at a moments notice and led me through it extremely competently. I couldn't recommend him more

Professional, reassuring and an excellent result!!! Having recently completed a septal rhinoplasty under the care of Mr Lakhani I could not recommend his services more. Mr Lakhani was extremely upfront with the entire process and recovery time involved in an operation like this. Not only was he extremely clear at the beginning but, Mr Lakhani continued to reassure and communicate as the process was continuing. Furthermore, post-operation support could not have been better and made life as comfortable as it could be given the circumstances.”

We were extremely happy with the treatment and care my son received from Dr.Raj for a Tonsil and Adenoid Coblation. During the first consultation, Dr.Raj was thorough and attentive in understanding my son's Sleep Apnea issues. He provided us with all the options available and the Procon's of each, which allowed us to make an informed decision which was right for our son. Coming away from the Consultation we felt very confident that Raj would be able to treat our son and he would be in the best hands to carry out the procedure. On the day of the operation, Raj took the time to talk through the procedure again and answer any other questions we had. His friendly and engaging manner meant that my young son and my husband and I felt at ease in an anxious time. After the procedure, we appreciated Raj keeping us updated. My son's recovery was better than we could have hoped, he was eating and drinking almost immediately and didn't complain of any pain or discomfort. He had fully recovered within 2-3 days. There were no post-op problems, but we felt we could have contacted Raj had we needed to. I can't rate Dr.Raj highly enough, his experience and personable manner made the whole experience for my son non-traumatic. The procedure Raj recommended has meant my son no longer suffers from Sleep Apnea, he has put on weight, is more energetic and happier. We're very grateful to Raj and would recommend him to anyone who would require this treatment.” Many thanks

I saw Mr Lakhani for the first time in February 2020 because of a persistent mild sinus ache, having suffered from sinusitis for over 50 years and having had various unpleasant procedures in my youth. My symptoms were mild rather than acute but I wanted reassurance that there wasn’t a major problem. Mr Lakhani had a good look at my nasal passages, recommended an MRI scan and prescribed a course of one month's Nasonex 50mg nasal spray. I had a follow-up appointment in early March. The results of the scan showed that everything was normal, although with some narrowing of the drainage passage on my right-hand side. I had found the spray helpful. We agreed that if the problem recurred I could ring his secretary for a repeat prescription. In general, Mr Lakahni felt that my symptoms could easily be managed by medication and that there was no need for surgery. A good result, pleasantly and professionally delivered, with a good conversation about blood oranges on the side!”

I went to Mr Lakhani after being referred there by my BUPA. I have struggled with breathing problems through my nose, almost my whole life. It’s caused a series of issues, including severe sleep apnea. Dr Lakhani was tremendously effective in quickly diagnosing that I had abnormally large Concha as well as narrow sinuses/deviated septum. The whole process from diagnosis to surgery was incredibly seamless and now I’m sleeping better than I have in decades. 10/10 every step of the way

I was extremely at ease from the moment I walked into Raj’s office. He was attentive and listened to me and quick to diagnose my nasal problems. We discussed two routes and although it’s quick to go down the surgical route recommended I try another option first. In most cases, this probably would have worked but in my case, we ended up needing to go through surgery and again felt really comfortable through the process as I knew I was in really good hands. Post-surgery Raj gave me his personal number and I could call or text him if I had any issues at all. And if I had any questions he was really quick to respond. Thanks so much, Raj, I would highly recommend you.

I went to see Mr Lakhani due to facial pain and recurrent sinus infections. He diagnosed what could’ve been contributing to my problems and recommended a simple sinus procedure to correct it. He was straightforward and honest about the possible outcomes and risks about the surgery and didn’t try to sell me on empty promises. I’m very happy with the outcome, I had little postoperative pain, recovery went smoothly and best of all no more facial pain or sinusitis. I would highly recommend Mr Lakhani for his professionalism and his personable and empathetic manner.

Mr Raj Lakhani, who successfully performed my nasal septoplasty and turbinate reduction at St Anthony’s hospital. Mr Raj Lakhani is an excellent consultant, providing good, thorough care from first assessment right up to post-op follow-up. He informed me of all the possible risks and complications that can occur in surgery and weighed these up against the benefits with me. He performed the surgery perfectly and I have fully recovered now with no complications. His post-op care was second to none, and he remained in contact so that I could ask any question that came to mind or raise any concerns. As a medical student myself, I have seen how other surgeons conduct themselves around their patients and I can say for sure that Mr Lakhani has the best bedside manner. He never spoke down to me and always included me in every step of the process. I would definitely recommend him to future patients.
