I was assigned to Mr Shibu Krishnan to perform a total left hip replacement under the NHS in June 2017 at The Chiltern Hospital. What a kind and reassuring gentleman he is – he explained everything clearly to me and put my mind at rest as I was very nervous about the whole procedure. I need not have worried – Mr Krishnan and his team looked after me so well and performed a successful operation. He also gave me good advice to aid my recovery. Three months later in September 2017, I had my right hip replaced, also by Mr Krishnan and team – again very successfully. I cannot thank him enough – it is so good to be able to walk without pain, even only 2 weeks after the second operation. I've got my life back again! I would thoroughly recommend Mr Krishnan for his kindness, professionalism and skill.
From the first time meeting Mr Krishnan he makes you fill comfortably in the way he is going to treat you. He answers all you questions in detail also took my fears away about having a totally hip replacement. Done a great job with no problems and my care was the best you could ask for. One thing I would recommend to do is to listen and do what Mr Krishnan tell you to do as it makes you healing process painless and easy to cope with. I would recommend Mr Krishnan to anyone, a very gifted surgeon.
Mr Krishnan is an excellent surgeon, who did my total left knee replacement. He listened to me before the operation- particularly as my first knee replacement had been made rather more painful due to problems with my anaesthetic. He ensured I had excellent pre operation support. He was always reassuring and explained exactly what would happen during the operation. He visited me while I was still on the ward and also saw me at my one year post operative appointment - helpfully explaining about the difference in recovery between my two knees. He is a skilled professional and I have no hesitation in recommending him to other patients.
Mr Shibu Krishnan has taken me on my journey through a total knee replacement. Having never had an operation in my life, I was very apprehensive. However I need not have worried from my very first meeting with Mr Krishnan I knew here was a professional whom I could communicate with and was able to ask the most ridiculous questions without fear of being dismissed as just 'a patient'. My journey did have a few ups and downs in preparation for the procedure, each step of which Mr Krishnan was easy to communicate with directly, had a very proactive approach and was a great help when dealing with other agencies. The operation itself was a well organised, a confidence building experience that has gone exactly to plan. The scaring is minimal and six weeks on I am so pleased that I listened to Mr Krishnan's advice and kind words. I have no hesitation in recommending Mr Krishnan a very caring, highly competent professional.
I had a severe heart problem needing investigation and treatment at approximately the same time as I had a very painful left knee which needed replacement thus making me practically housebound. It was essential for me to have my vascular problems brought to a satisfactory conclusion with medication before surgery on my knee could be considered. Throughout this time Mr.Shibu Krishnan kept fully in touch with me until eventually I was in the fortunate position of being able to be considered for surgery. Mr.Krishnan was at all times totally supportive, considerate and the utmost professional gentleman in his approach. The surgery has been a complete success and I give many thanks to him and his team for the care and attention I received before, during and after surgery. I have been given a new lease of life for which I am so grateful. Mr. Krishnan is a credit to his profession. Richard Bawden 27 April 2017
