Mr Krishnan replaced my right knee. He advised me before the operation of exactly what would occur, and gave me other options besides a replacement, although he advised that a complete replacement was what I needed. He came to see me personally after the operation to make sure that everything was OK. It is now 6 weeks since the operation, and although there is still slight swelling of the knee, I can walk without a stick, without a limp and with minimum pain.
I first met Mr Krishnan in June 2015 just before he completed my full left knee replacement in the August. His pre-op talk was very precise and clear, listening and giving clear answers to my many questions. The operation went very smoothly and healing was quite quick.(you must do the excercises). I am now looking forward to having my right knee replacement carried out by Mr Krishnan in total confidense. Many thanks, regards, Graham Perkins.
On 15 August 2016 Mr Krishnan conducted the total hip relacement procedure on my left side at Wycombe hospital. It has proved for me a huge success and has given me back my life. After 35 years in the Forces I had a lot of wear and tear and was only able to sleep intermittently. I am now able to sleep normally thanks to this effective procedure I was very impressed with the outstanding professionalism of the Surgeon ,his team and all those on the Ward. My after care was also extremely efficient. It was almost a pleasure to need surgery! I much appreciated the clear and thorough explanations both pre and post operation and frankly was vastly superior to the treatment I received privately elsewhere on a separate occasion.
All of my treatment under Mr Krishnan and all of the staff at the Shelburne Hospital was excellent. It was carried out in a very professional, friendly and caring way, this also applied to the physiotherapy and follow up treatment. I could not be more pleased with the overall result of my treatment and my ability to walk pain free. Thank you to all.
