Rushed into a/e with swollen knee and very hot. When I was seen i had an infection sepsis. When to swan ward next morning I went to theatre knee cut open washed out had my replacement knee taken out. The sepsis had been eating my bone away so had blocks put in and also had to wear abrace on to keep my leg straight. Seven weeks later went back in. Back to theatre opened up again blocks all removed. Then I had the bones built up again and had a hinged knee put in then 52 staples later .had another brace put on to keep straight for three weeks.mr unnithan was very good at telling all that went on. Gave us his card so if worried about anything we could speak to him. He was so kind and looks after me very well. Thank you so much.now the pain I can control very well and an now bend my knee and walking very well.
I am 83 and had a severely arthritic hip. Dr Unnithan operated on my hip in September 2017. He couldn't have been more caring and knowledgeable. He filled me with confidence. The operation was a complete success and within 12 days I could walk half a mile almost unaided. I would highly recommended him. I was discharged after five weeks and I'm now completely without pain.
Mr Unnithan, has a lovely manner about him , helpful , kind , does all he can to sort your problems out , I would go back to him , he has helped me so much with a very bad broken right wrist, which is healing well . A pleasure to see him at my appointmens.
In July 2017, I ruptured my Achilles Tendon whilst playing tennis. The Consultant Surgeon was Mr Unnithan. From the first meeting I had with Mr Unnithan through to 17 weeks post-op, I have found him to be very reassuring, informative and extremely personable. I would highly recommend Mr Unnithan for any form of Orthopedic Surgery.
I recently had a THR revision with Dr Unnithan and the whole experience with him has been great. He takes his time to explain everything to me all the risks involved and what the outcome could be. The operation went well it was a very complex surgery as my old hip replacement did not go well and he had a lot of trouble taking the old hip out, my bone had to be broken in order for the old hip to to be taken out. Dr Unnithan has been great to me throughout the whole time before, during and after the operation he has all the knowledge and skills and he is a great Doctor i would highly recommend him and trust him. Thank you again Dr Unnithan!
