Two weeks ago yesterday this amazing consultant carried out Decompression surgery to my L2/3 Revision 345. What can I say but how grateful I am to the amazing professional consultant. Compassionate to improving the health of his patients. 100% trust in Mr Bathia, I will always be very grateful. Two years of Sciatica every day of pain in my right leg reducing my mobility to not be able to walk drive my car without pain. See you in a few weeks for a follow up at the Shelbourne Suit Swindon. I will hopefully have an enjoyable Christmas this year and look forward to a positive 2020. Thank you with sincere gratitude Rachael Collins

An outstanding surgeon, he explained what issues I had with my back and what the best course of action was. The results of the operation have been far better than I expected and considering that I have had vertebrae fused in my neck the restriction of movement is hardly noticeable, more importantly day on day I'm regaining strength in my arms and my balance back its nice to be able to walk with out falling over.

6 weeks ago I had an L4/5 lumbar decompression and discectomy, which was a complete success and removed all traces of Sciatica which had plagued me for about two years. However I am still experiencing great pain in my right hip, down to my knee, which is not alleviated by 8 Tramadol 6 Iboprufen and Paracetamol taken daily; and have been waiting for a replacement hip was for some considerable time. When asked, I explained to Mr Bhatia that I was still on the waiting list. He told me he would write to the surgeon that day to ask that I be seen as soon as possible. Now it may be coincidence but today, I had a call from the surgeons secretary offering me the 23rd September as a date for my hip replacement. Whether Mr Bhatia had anything to do with this I honestly don't know. All I know is although Mr Bhatia is an extremely busy man, it was an absolute pleasure to engage with someone who listened, treated me with kindness, and inspired the utmost confidences, in his approach and suggestions for my future well being. Needless to say should the need arise, I would pray that Mr Bhatia will again be my surgeon. .
