I arrived at the John Radcliffe Trauma Unit on Thursday evening a week after a fall from my horse. I spent the week in a general hospital awaiting a diagnosis and plan; given that I had an unstable fracture of my spine this was a very difficult time for me. I felt vulnerable and at risk of further injury. From the minute I was referred to the John Radcliffe I was treated with absolute professionalism, care and respect. Before I arrived my case had been discussed by the Trauma team and treatment options decided. When I arrived each person I met introduced themselves and took the time to explain their role in my care and recovery. Dr Chaudhary went in to considerable detail about my operation and answered all the questions I had with care and attention to detail. I had every confidence that he and his team had my best interests at heart. I was in surgery on Friday morning and by Saturday evening I was discharged. His keyhole surgery technique has meant that my speedy recovery seems to be assured. I cannot thank him enough. The contrast between all the staff at the John Radcliffe - the health care team, the nurses, the anaesthetists, the surgeons and the physiotherapists and those at the other hospital was night and day. It was a pleasure to experience such high standards of professionalism, care and support. Thank you
I had a keyhole microdiscectomy surgery by Mr Chaudhary and the operation went well. I understood my scar would be much smaller than the standard (non-keyhole) technique, and I was able to go home in the evening. It has been a week since my surgery and recovery is as expected. Mr Chaudhary clearly explained his keyhole technique and the risks involved in the surgery during the pre-operation consenting process. For those suffering from the condition microdiscectomy is definitely worth considering. My sciatic pain disappeared immediately, and with the added benefit of coming off various painkillers.
Mr Chaudhary was kind enough to make himself available to see me at short notice and took time to review third party scans and reports. He was professional, as expected, but also engaging and understanding. He took time to discuss options in detail and skilfully involved me in the decision making process for my spinal issues. There is more than comfort in knowing that your surgeon understands your problem!
Good listener; gave clear explanation of likely outcome before MRI scan, and then very clearly described the findings and implications for management. Very impressive all round. Nice man.
I attended two appointments with Mr B Roy Chaudhary. Both sessions were very informative and to the point. Different options were discussed and by the end of the 2nd session, I chose my preferred option without feeling pressured.
