An outstanding doctor and consultation. He listened carefully and gave me some reassuring and helpful suggestions as to how to take my treatment forward. I would recommend him unreservedly.
As stated above this is a Doctor One would instinctlivly trust and quite frankly One does not see a better choice coming along for this type of surgery. Quite frankly as good as One could ever hope for.
I have been a keen sportsman all my life and, now aged 72, continue to be a competitive golfer. I saw Mr Chaudhary (Roy) at the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre as I had been suffering severe pain in the buttocks and hips for 18 months. He explained in great detail why I was experiencing the pain, what he could do to help, the risks involved and what my expectations should be. He impressed me immediately by his honest and down to earth approach, he didn't pull any punches and I felt that here was a surgeon who I would gladly trust with my life. Roy completed the surgery and visited me at 2100 that evening after a long day operating and a meeting; I couldn't believe that he had found the time to check up on me. Roy is clearly a brilliant surgeon but, more than that, his enthusiasm and dedication to you as an individual is striking and I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking a spinal surgeon. He leads a great team at the NOC.
I recently saw Roy for lower back pain and having had an MRI was shown to have a prolapsed L5 disc. As a fairly fit and actively sporty 54 year old the prior months of sciatica and inability to walk let alone exercise were really tough. Roy fully explained my options both surgical and non surgical and also explained that he carried out the micro discectomy via keyhole surgery. This factor was instrumental in my desision to have the procedure as they recovery time was potentially shorter which meant I would be able to get back to normal as quickly as possible. Roy carried out the procedure after having explained what he was going to do and what I could/ should expect post surgery and in the following months. At every stage Roy was open, informative and gave me complete confidence that he would do his very best for me. Post surgery I was able to walk with a Physio the same afternoon and was already feeling improvements in my leg pain and numbness. I have no hesitation in recommending Roy and also the keyhole surgery for this operation - both not only met, but exceeded my expectations.
I was seen at the Nuffield with back and leg pain. At every point of my treatment I received excellent care. Mr Chaudhary was the surgeon I saw and he took time to explain everything in detail and put my mind at rest regarding my procedure. My surgery was carried out swiftly and I am currently recovering well at home. Mr Chaudhary has excellent communication skills and it is clear he works hard to give his patients the best experience and outcome he can. If you are able to choose your surgeon I would highly recommend Mr Chaudhary. I feel very lucky to have received his care on the National Health! Nicky G
