Five years ago, next month, Mr Krishnan replaced my right hip joint - I was suffering from severe arthritis. It was funded by the NHS and done in Wycombe hospital. It was transformative and I was able to go back to playing football with my grand children. At the time Mr Krishnan told me the other hip would need doing and he said "I'll see you within five years". Sure enough, by 2019 I became aware of deterioration and discomfort in the left hip. By the end of 2020 it was severe. given how good the first procedure had been. I contacted Mr Krishnan at the beginning of this year and arranged for the necessary surgical procedure to be done at the BMI Chiltern in March. The whole process was brilliant and transformative. Its still only 6 weeks ago, but I am very satisfied. Mr Krishnan is in my view a great surgeon; he listens and explains everything, nothing is too much trouble.

I was fortunate in that Mr Krishnan agreed to give me surgery for a hip replacement and was greatly impressed by his professional approach , skill and efficiency. All went well, and I feel 100% better after the surgery. I cannot praise Mr Krishnan enough. His dedication and skill changed my life for the better. The after care I received was excellent and his dedication to his patients could not be bettered.

This Operation was to repair my knee joint and I was fortunate to have Mr Shibu Krishnan as the Surgeon to carry out this operation. This was my first ever Operation that I have ever had in my life and from the very first Consultation that I had with Mr Krishnan, he explained what he was going to do with the repair of my knee and totally reassured myself on all aspects of the operation. Mr Krishnan came to see me prior to the operation and again afterwards to reassure and to confirm that all had gone well. Since the operation, Mr Krishnan has periodically been in touch but it was difficult with the Virus Situation, however we had our final face to face meeting (with X-Rays being taken) and Mr Shibu Krishnan was pleased with the repair of my knee and signed me off. There is nothing to improve anything and full praise and thanks to Mr Krishnan.
