I would first like to say thank you for seeing me today and putting my mind at rest. With regards to my operation for a Total Hip Replacement in November 2018 with Doctor Gulati at The HomertonHospital, I have nothing but praise for what he did for me that day. The operation was a complete success and almost immediately I was able to carry on my life at last without pain. I am able to go dancing ,swimming, yoga , and lead the life I had before. I would like to thank you Doctor not only for the operation but also your kindness when I was at my lowest having just lost my husband. I have always had a great respect for what you doctors do, but I have never met a kinder gentleman than you Doctor. I thank you for what you have done for me.

HAD A COMPLETE KNEE REPLACEMENT OPERATION PERFORMED BY MR. GULATI IN DECEMBER 2019. HE HAS TREATED ME WITH THE UTMOST DIGNITY & CARE THROUGHOUT THE PROCEDURE. MR. GULATI HAD THE ABILITY TO LISTEN TO MY CONCERNS OFFERING SOUND ADVICE THROUGHOUT MY TREATMENT. I COULD NOT HAVE WISHED FOR A MORE SUPPORTIVE SURGEON & NEEDLESS TO SAY THE OPERATION HAS BEEN A HUGE SUCCESS. I AM MOST GRATEFUL TO HIM & HIS TEAM FOR THEIR HELP & FRIENDLY MANNER FROM START TO FINISH.

I am writing to thank you for taking such amazing care of my daughter. I know you have been very supportive of her, have demonstrated enormous emotional intelligence when talking to her and helping her manage her fears and anxiety over what has happened to her regarding the stress fracture and have provided her with outstanding care in every way. Thank you so very much, we all appreciate it, especially my daughter… and myself, as her Mum, standing helpless on the sidelines! Thank you from the bottom of my heart and fingers crossed she will soon be an ex-patient!

I had suffered from hip pain for many years to a point where it just became a way of life for me.The hip replacement you performed on me in mid-October has been remarkable, and now just over three months down the line I am thoroughly enjoying the ability to walk pain free, something I have not be able to manage for as long as I can remember. I really cannot thank you enough for your professionalism both pre and post-operation. I knew I had made the right choice when we first met, I felt at ease and you took the time to explain things to me (even over WhatsApp on Sunday afternoon!) Your reassurance helped me to realise that I was in good hands and was making the right decision choosing you as my surgeon. Wishing you all the very best for the future.

I’m one of your patients. I came to see you on 29/07/2019 and you arranged for me to receive a cortisone injection, which was given to me on the 18/09/2019 at Homerton hospital. After the injection, I was referred to the hospital's physio department where I was offered 4 sessions of physiotherapy. I have started going to the gym and I have also been doing all of the exercises that were recommended by the physiotherapist. Since receiving the injection and exercising, The pains in my knee has reduced greatly. My knee is not warm to touch nor wakes me up at night. The pain has not gone completely, I still have pains when I climbing or descending the stairs but it’s bearable. however, I am able to walk for long and now able to do some of the things I was previously unable to do because of the pain in my knees. Thank you for recommending the injection.

Dear Mr Gulati, You may recall you did both of my knee replacements; the left one in February and the right one in July 2019. I just want to thank you because I am now able to walk again pain-free. I am in Australia now and have attended my niece's wedding - I have never been before and the likelihood is if my knees had not been replaced I probably would not have been able to attend the wedding due to the extreme difficulty I was having managing my pain and being mobile. I was able to see my family who I haven't seen in years. I've also been walking around Sydney sight seeing for up to an hour and longer on occasions. My shoulders are still giving me some trouble but my knees are excellent now. You have given me a new lease of life - I am able to walk around without leg/knee pain and its wonderful. I cannot thank you enough. You and other Doctors like you are a huge credit to the NHS. Thank you once again to you and your team for everything you have done for me. I hope you had a good Christmas and Happy New Year to you all. Best regards,
