I'd had many years of knee pain, developed a limp resulting in hip pain and could not walk long distances or stand for long periods . In 2019 I was referred to Mr. Imbuldeniya for a total knee replacement. At my first appointment the procedure was explained to me and I was added to the waiting list. Later I attended a physiotherapy session and was taught exercises to do pre and post surgery. My knee replacement was done under spinal block and after a night on the ward and a lesson on how to walk with crutches I went home in the afternoon. 8 weeks later I was back at work. That was a year ago. I can now walk miles without pain and have no limp or hip pain. I am very pleased with the result from my knee replacement and had excellent care from all the staff I met in theatre, the ward and physiotherapy department. Mr, Imbuldeniya is very approachable, provides excellent advice and explanation and has done a great job. My quality of life is so much better and I feel very lucky to have been looked after by him.

I am a 63-year old man who is enjoying a new lease of life thanks to Mr Imbuldeniya and his wonderful team, and I cannot recommend him highly enough to anyone needing orthopaedic treatment. I had two hips replaced by Mr Imbuldeniya and colleagues, one in November 2018 and one in October 2019, as I had severe arthritis and was in pain, with limited mobility. But that was just the start. Shortly after my second hip was replaced, I had a fall and smashed my hip replacement and broke my leg. Mr Imbuldenya and his team carried out complicated revision surgery to put things right, including putting in some major hardware to hold my leg together. After that I contracted an infection and was hospitalised again and put on intravenous antibiotics. Coinciding with this I also suffered a severe mental health breakdown, brought on by the infection and the stress of everything. It was not a good time. My relationship came to an end because my then partner decided they wouldn't be able to look after me when I came out of hospital, and dumped my things in the ward. My mental breakdown also affected my relationship with my estranged wife and family and I was unable to carry on with the freelance work I had been doing, so I lost that, which made things worse. But Mr Imbuldeniya and his team stood by me all through all this time and I am now completely recovered and moving well, thanks to his wonderful skills and care and not least, his continued personal interest and support throughout my treatment, including often coming to see me in the fragile ward and encouraging me to keep going when things felt very bleak. I have tears in my eyes as I write this. I have been very fortunate indeed to have Mr Imbuldenya as a surgeon and consultant and cannot recommend him too strongly.

I am 61 man and prior to my hip replacement procedure was becoming increasingly immobile. By October of 2019 I was regularly using strong pain relief medication prescribed by my GP. This just to get through my day. My mobility had diminished to hobbling around and a dread of stairs. Mr Imbuldeniya and his team performed the procedure on my right hip on Friday 3rd Jan 2020. 4 hours after surgery (with the use of a zimmer frame) I was able to "walk" to the toilet. On Monday 6th Jan I was able to return home and used a pair of crutches for the first 6 weeks. From day 1, I followed the physio rehab exercise regime provided by the Teddington Memorial Hospital physio dept. By week 8 I was walking un-aided around the house (I used a single a crutch when outside my home). By week 10, I was walking completely unaided. 3 months later, riding a bicycle, for the first time in two years. All this without pain. 6 months in, I have shed a stone in weight and now lighter than my pre-op weight. I am able to walk several miles without pain. I can even undertake 10 mile bicycle rides pain free. For me, having this procedure has been life changing. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Mr Imbuldeniya & his team for the marvelous job they have done. I am truly a new man.

I have had my total knee replacement(left) just 3 months back. I am doing very well. In the beginning, i was very scared to go for this surgery but when I met Dr. Arjuna in his westmiddlesex hospital clinic, I felt a great sense of comfort. He heard me patiently, answered all my queries and most importantly on the day of the surgery, he mentally prepared me to be ready for 'not so good' 1 week post surgery. He explained the recovery timeline which of course is different for each individual but I fairy knew that I am there! To be honest, after reading reviews written for him, I was praying for him to do my surgery and when he came to call me at the reception, I was elated that my prayers have been heard! On the day of my discharge from the hospital, I couldn't meet him but he took no time in replying to my emails. Now I am going ahead with my right knee replacement with him and his fantastic team. Thank you so much Dr. Arjuna and your team...

I had an arthroscopy and repair of torn cartilage under GA in early February having endured 7 months of pain and discomfort. I sought a second opinion with Mr Imbuldeniya having had a consultation with a different surgeon where I was informed that an operation would probably be pointless and I would need to live with the pain and discomfort for the rest of my life. On meeting Mr Imbuldeniya, he listened carefully, carried out a number of movements with my knee which hadn't been done previously, talked about all the options open to me and said that he felt an operation would be a perfectly reasonable approach to sorting out my knee. I duly had the operation and after a month of exercises and physio etc my knee feel fantastic. I am pain free, very mobile, back to my speedy walk and able to run up and down stairs with aplomb! So pleased I sought a second opinion. As a former nurse, I can say hand on heart, Mr Imbuldeniya has one of the best Dr/ Patient approaches I have encountered. Warm , thoughtful, curious, patient, interested and with a great sense of humour to boot, With heartfelt thanks . Dorothy
