Dear Mr Punwar, a big thank you to you and all your team. As a result of your work I am walking upright without limping and I am sure you have managed to even up the length of my legs. You have released the 'tiger in my tank' - no crutches around the house and only one when in the street by myself shopping. All this only two and a half weeks after the operation. I am most grateful to you. Best Wishes, Mrs JG

I was lucky to have Mr Punwar perform my kneed replacement op. I have had absolutely no problems and the scar is very neat. I am indeed fortunate as others that I know have had replacements by other surgeons and have had a lot of discomfort and problems . I am eternally grateful for his s expertise..

I had a half knee replacement at the end of January performed by Mr Punwar. I could not have wished for a better surgeon to perform my operation, all patients want to know everything that the surgeon is going to do to them, it;s there body and it affects the rest of their life. Shah was both professional and at the same time down to earth, speaking in layman's language so ever detail of what he was going to do was understood. He is a busy man but always has the time to chat and make the patient feel completely at ease. It has been six months now and I am walking reasonably well, sometimes 2 or 3 miles. I still get a bit of pain if I walk for a long time, but generally, I'm walking better than before the operation with less pain. I have stopped taking the pain killers and use voltarol gel to cope if I do get pain. I am sure in 12 months time I will be totally pain-free and feel my operation performed by Shah is a complete success.
