Where other surgeons refused to attempt any type of surgery on my neck (C3/4) and forcing me to get a second opinion Mr. Chaudhary listened to me. He explained all the risks, (which were very high) and asked me to have a think about what would happen if things went wrong, and also the surgery was a preventative surgery and not a cure. It didn,t take me long to put my faith in Mr Chaudhary, as other surgeons informed me nothing was wrong, But Mr Chaudhary told me the truth, If things went wrong I could be paralized from the neck down, and he enjoyed a challenge. I live on my own and am 68 so again the desicion was easy, if left I would end up paralized eventually anyway. I feel very fortunate to have met Mr Chaudhary and wish I had been sent to him earlier, saving me an awful lot of pain and misery. Mr Chaudhary is a brilliant person, he listens, tells you the truth, caring and a fantastic surgeon. If you. like me are getting no where with your neursurgeon ask to see Mr Chaudhary and I can guarantee you will not regret it, especially if you have been going around in circles for a long time Thank You Mr. Chaudhary you have given me faith in the National Health again Vivienne Lutter
Dear Ms Lutter, Thank you so very much for taking the time to leave this review and for the wonderful card. It's proudly displayed on the departmental board:) Regards.
I had L3/4 microdecompression surgery performed by Mr Chaudhary for a prolapsed disc in November 2016. It was such a relief to be under his expert care after months of pain, and to know that my spinal issues were being addressed and explained. From the pre-op assessment, through to surgery and the post-op discharge, Mr Chaudhary made time to explain everything and address my concerns. He even visited me on the Saturday morning (while off-duty, the ward nurses pointed out) before I left hospital after the op, to check on progress. Mr Chaudhary has been very encouraging and reassuring about my recovery, and though I understand how vital my own efforts and input are in that, the microsurgery has been a huge part of the journey towards a pain-free back. I am so grateful to Mr Chaudhary and his NHS team – and the tiny scar is impressive too!
I went into hospital in a great deal of pain needing c4/5 removed, the surgery went very well and when I woke from the operation I instantly felt 80% less pain which is continually improving, I managed the recovery well and left hospital 24 hours later, the after care was excellent, and may I add the Nuffield was extremely clean and staff very efficient. Mr Chaudhary is a brilliant surgeon and I would recommend him 100% he explains things very well and leaves you feeling you understand the process well. Thank you for the great care
After suffering with pain on a daily basis for over two years, I finally made my way through the system to Mr Chaudhary. He is an affable chap, which instantly put me at ease. He understood the dynamics of my home/work situation and spoke to me in terms of solutions with minimal impact. He performed a key hole discectomy and has changed my life completely. The operation was a great success and I am now virtually pain free, something I never thought I would achieve again. I can not thank this man enough and would highly recommend!!
Thank you very much for taking the time to leave this feedback. I'm pleased that the keyhole operation went as planned and has given the symptoms relief you sought. BW.
