In June 2016 my left knee became swollen, stiff with severe pain. With a 30 year history and numerous operations it was no surprise. I went for a consultation with Mr Jalgaonker in September. He decided the knee had such severe arthritis that a total knee replacement was the best solution. This was no surprise as a consultant in Spain 4 years ago had indicated that but as I was only 49 gave me a cortisone which helped until now. Mr Jalgaonker told me the arthritis had got so severe a cortisone would not be the solution. In October I had my knee replacement, which also needed a screw to be removed from previous acl construction. I arrived at Clare Park Hospital and was in surgery within a couple of hours. After a 2.5 hour op I came round and the nurse showed me the operation details and clearly informing me there were no complications ( a first in my knee history ). I was walking on crutches the next day, discharged the day after. 10 days later was on 1 crutch, walking unaided in 2 weeks, walking up and down stairs normally in 4 weeks. I am now 6 weeks post op and am amazed at my recovery. I am disciplined with the physio and working hard to strengthen all the surrounding muscles. I have had around 6 knee operations in 30 years and most have had complications. Mr Jagaonker is definitely the orthopedic surgeon I would recommend. He is young and instilled confidence in me from the outset and my final result so far I think is exceptional
Mr Jalgaonkar went above and beyond for my disabled daughter who has been struggling to walk. He made sure every medical area was covered and made many suggestions one being vitamin D which has stopped her having "achy bones". I highly recommend this caring and knowledgeable consultant.
My experience during my knee replacement surgery was excellent Mr Jalgoankar was helpful, professional and has done a great job. I would definitely recommend him.
'It is so hard to express my Thanks to Mr Jalgaonkar for his special skills and 'twice' taking away the horrible pain that my hips unfortunately gave me!! Mr Jalgaonkar is all ‘Magic’ and the operations themselves were just amazing!! Thank you so much. I am looking forward now to being able to walk so much better.' Mrs B B
