Mr Bardeep Rana
7th January 2016
Mr Bardeep Rana is a wonderful orthopaedic surgeon. He discussed fully all the pros and cons of a hip replacement. He answered all my questions and advised of all replacement types/ options and what would be best for me although he let me decide what I wanted. I had total trust in Mr Rana going in for the operation in August 2015.
My total hip joint replacement (ceramic) has been an amazing success and I thank Mr Rana so much for that. Before the op I could barely walk, stand or sit. I had difficulty driving, my whole life was affected by the awful pain. From waking from the operation I have suffered no more pain, and never taken another painkiller.
My recuperation in New Southern General (HNHS Patient) was relatively easy, Mr Rana called in every day to check my progress and my family were great carers when I got home. I followed all his instructions and I would say every day there was an improvement and life was back to normal after about 12 weeks.
I attended my sons wedding four weeks post op on crutches but not in pain and had a wonderful day. I have just returned recently from New York with my family sixteen weeks post op. Among other things I cycled round Central Park and walked 28 blocks of 5th Avenue shopping. This would all have been impossible before last August.
If you know you need a hip replacement don't hesitate to trust Mr Rana and don't put it off, there is never a perfect time. Get your life back and enjoy it pain free.
