From the first time we met until the sign off appointment Mr Chaudhary was friendly professional helpful and knowledgeable. He listened to me and we discussed all aspects of the issues and treatments, including risks for and against. Agreed a plan which has been followed to a successful conclusion. At no time did I feel outside the loop of control. I felt from start to finish as a person not just a medical symptom. A heartfelt THANK YOU to a skilled surgeon. Keep up the great work!
I would just like to say a very big thank you to Mr B Roy Chaudhary and his colleagues. My keyhole surgery was amazing, I was up and able to walk around within hours of the operation which was L5/S1 interlaminar space and left S1 nerve root decompression. Its three weeks on and I am still recovering but feel so much better than before. I would also like to thank the lovely nurse in Recovery called Debbie, she is very kind and caring. Very kind regards Susan Coggins Seen at Nuffield Orthapaedic Centre
Referred to Mr Chaudhary following eight months of debilitating and excrutiating sciatica, where I was unable to stand upright due to pain. I was examined thoroughly and it was arranged for further scans to be performed. All the while, Mr Chaudhary explained his findings, and the possible procedures that could take place. It resulted in L5/S1 decompression and discectomy, performed by keyhole surgery. I arrived at the hospital at 6am, with my surgery performed later in the day. My aftercare was superb, and the following day was on my feet, standing more errect than I had in many months! The physiotherapist visited me pm to challenge me on several tasks, all which I carried out successfully. After assuring that I had a lift home, and that I wouldn't be on my own when I arrived there, I was discharged that day, some 26 hours after surgery! I cannot praise Mr Chaudhary enough. He is pleasant and not brusque. He explains in great detail the diagnosis, prognosis and even the possible problems that may occur. The keyhole procedure is innovative and, in my case, totally successful. This method of surgery reduces use of NHS resources by so much, taking bed usage from maybe a week to 36 hours, together with the nursing and aftercare. I think it is wonderful and am totally a fan.
Mr Chaudhary assisted me through my recent neck surgery. He made the decision to operate from the clinical evidence on my record. I was in immense pain for over 11 months and was very anxious that the condition was not going to be treated as I had previously been referred to pain management. I saw Mr Chaudhary in his private clinic and he agreed to see me as an nhs patient as I had already been referred to his list but the waiting time was over 2 months. He was very reassuring and provided me with exceptional reassurance and explained the risks and success rates of the operation. I felt very lucky to have him as my consultant.
Roy Chaudhary is a excellent consultant. Very caring. I had to have a very urgent operation on my neck in April and all his team have been brilliant. Many thanks and appreciation Kathleen Pitson Rose HIll Oxford
