After suffering with osteoarthritis of the right knee for around a year and a half and not being able to bend my knee and was in absolute agony with the pain I was referred to Dr Acharya. On my first consultation he instantly knew that I needed a full knee replacement. I was informed at all times what this involved and what the recovery period would be. I had my knee replacement 6 weeks ago and I can now walk properly my knee bends fully and I am now nearly pain free. I would highly recommend Dr Acharya and I cant thank him enough for how he has changed my life.

My appointment with Mr Acharya was a consultation following my left knee replacement operation in September 2019 to assess the condition of and effectiveness of the knee replacement. Following an x-ray of my knee joint which was performed virtually straightaway after arrival I had the consultation soon after. My consultation lasted about 10 minutes and Mr Acharya was courteous, polite and informative after assessing the x-ray and carrying out a hands on assessment of the mobility of the knee joint which was assessed as excellent. I wish to thank Mr Acharya for giving back to me the freedom of movement and the ability to walk free from pain.

I was first diagnosed with arthritis in 2014 but I was not in much pain. I continued exercising until Covid struck in 2020 by which time I was walking with a considerable limp. A further X-ray in September 2021 showed severe arthritis in my left hip. I discussed various treatments with the physiotherapist at the Knoll Surgery and opted for a replacement. I had choice of hospitals from the NHS Choice Team and first met Mr Acharya about October 2021 at the Cheshire Spire. He was very efficient and decisive having no hesitation in recommending a full replacement and said it would be about a 6-month wait, which surprised me as I was expecting about 2 years! The operation took place on a Saturday morning under an epidural and sedative and yes, I was very apprehensive but Mr Acharya, the anaesthetist, and theatre nurse put me at ease. I was totally unaware of what was happening after the epidural but “came to” very quickly. Following the operation, I was on pain killers but never felt any real pain whatsoever, just some discomfort. I was up the following day on crutches with the physiotherapist and was soon walking up and down the corridor and stairs. I went home on the Tuesday and still feeling no pain came off the pain killers after 3 or 4 days. From there my recovery was extremely rapid, dispensing with the crutches after a couple of weeks, and back to walking our dog. After a year, the scar is very faint, I have no pain or limp whatsoever and I go to the gym 2 or 3 times a week. I cannot thank Mr Acharya enough and I am sure my excellent present condition is down to his skill and technique.

Mr Acharya was cordial and very thorough in his examination of my previous left hip operation. I was very impressed with him taking the trouble to check on the condition of my right hip operation which is now 19 years old. I left feeling re-assured and ready for a continued active life at the right old age of 84 next month.
