I found Miss Hajipour to be extremely professional and caring. I felt as though I was treated as a "person" needing help and not just another body, which I've experienced elsewhere. I immediately felt I was in capable hands. She helped me understand the diagnosis, its implications and the treatment required. The delicate and intricate surgery Miss Hajipour performed on my wrist (broken scaphoid) was very successful; for a condition that was relatively serious and problematic. My recovery is improving better than expected and the neat incisions made during the operation have left minimal scarring. Apart from the feeling of strain, which was expected, I wouldn't even know I had a bone graft and steel pins placed into my wrist. I'm confident I will make a full recovery.
Miss Hajipour has operated on both my hands in the last two years to correct Dupuytren’s contracture. It is impossible to imagine being treated by a better surgeon. From the very first consultation Miss Hajipour demonstrated her care, concern and competence, her examination was detailed and comprehensive, and she explained the proposed surgery thoroughly, honestly pointing out the difficulties but also conveying reassuring confidence in the outcome. Both surgeries were remarkably successful, the first all the more so in view of the fact that the condition had reached an almost untreatable state, and Miss Hajipour herself commented on the challenge the operation had posed, and the outcome was a triumph for her outstanding skills as a surgeon. In the post-operative appointments Miss Hajipour could not have been more caring and supportive: she has a wonderful manner, warm and friendly, relaxed and with a sense of humour, but also completely professional. Every aspect of the care and treatment I received from Miss Hajipour was exemplary.
At the very first appointment with Miss Hajipour she gained my respect and trust. She spoke with straightforward honesty and gave sufficient medical detail for me to understand exactly what was involved in treatment for my fracture. After four weeks in a cast, she called me back into hospital as she could see from the X Ray that there was some slippage that might later cause me a problem. I cannot say how grateful I am for her scrupulous care at this time. Following the surgery, I developed a complication which she dealt with immediately. The complication meant that my recovery might not be complete and might be slow. In fact, I have gained total movement back in my wrist and hand. I am deeply grateful for her skill, as a surgeon and for her reassuring manner. I have no suggestions for improvement as I believe I received outstanding care that has restored my wrist and hand fully.
I couldn’t have asked for a better doctor to look after my wrist. Each appointment was a pleasure as she made me feel calm leading up to my operation, I also got on very well with Miss Hajipour, so it was upsetting knowing I didn’t have to go back anymore (same time obviously a relief!) what a delight to be around. Thank you again! The boy who broke his wrist a year ago from playing football
Ladan Hajipour is a cut above the rest. I am so lucky to have been referred to her. Her incredible surgical skills and proactive aftercare mean I now have full use of my thumb and hand following an accident just over a month ago where the eventual outcome would’ve been loss of use of my hand and eventual amputation of the thumb. Finding out from her I had 13 fractures in just one bone was a shock after mistakes at the previous hospital and delays that meant my hand was sat in a cast for a week and a half. On our first appointment Hajipour explained surgery was the only feasible option and under her care I have been given a new thumb. I can’t imagine the complexities involved with rebuilding a tiny, essential bone shattered into 13 pieces but it had to be done so I could use my hand again. Hajipour is honest and plain speaking but brimming with positivity and experience. I had complete faith in her from the moment I shook her hand. Today as I was signed off I noticed she had 31 patients on her list for the morning. Other consultants and practitioners had 10, 17. But Miss Hajipour doesn’t treat you as a number or case. She always makes you feel at ease; that she will do everything she can. Time after time she has reassured me and addressed any issue or problems arising, with prudence and kindness. And this is on the NHS! She’s truly a wonderful surgeon and not just that - a wonderful person. I can look forward to a good future now, with full mobility back and I owe that to this brilliant woman. Thank God my file landed on her list that day.
