Mr Chauhan has been a consultant in trauma and orthopaedic surgery since 2002 with a focus on trauma, arthroscopic and joint replacement work mainly around the lower limb. He graduated from Dundee University & lectured in Sheffield University in Anatomy and Physiology. After completing basic surgical training there, Orthopaedic training commenced in Leeds followed by a fellowship at the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital in Birmingham. Arthroscopy and cartilage research was undertaken at Smith and Nephew’s Research Facility in York and University College London helped to validate the early imaging of cartilage and establish an arthroscopic service in Southend-on-Sea where he was appointed as a Consultant. During the time there he has developed minimally invasive approach to anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction making it possible to use a novel approach to hamstring ligament harvesting. Research interests included developing methods of treatment for cartilage damage. Mr. Chauhan is described as a caring individual with his approach to patients and their needs using great attention to detail. These are qualities that keep patients giving the highest recommendation and are also seen in the approach to individualised teaching of Foundation, Core and Speciality Trainees as well as General Practitioner colleagues.
Mr Chauhan this surgeon deserves a medal , he explained in great depth on the problem i had , and how he would fix the problems , always answering any questions arrissing , totally put ones mind at rest , showing he cared for his patients and always smiling , the after care after the operation was tremendous , and follow up appointments , cant say anything but praise for this great Man .
I had a total hip replacement and from day one I have had no pain in the hip or that leg. Itis amazing considering I was iin agony before. I found Mr Chauhan both pleasent and funny and very reassuring. I was confident he what he was doing. .
I have recently had a total hip replacement - met Mr. Chauhan for a consultation, immediately before he operated and today at the follow up clinic. He listens to you and is very reassuring and the best thing is that beforehand I could hardly walk and now can walk pain free . Thank you to you and your staff at Southend hospital.
I have recently had a knee replacement and found Mr Chauhan to be attentive and caring. After many years of pain I am now able to live life to the full again. I would recommend Mr Chauhan to anyone.
Thank you very much for taking the time to leave this review. I am delighted you are doing well. I hope Being pain free is like having a new lease of life. I look forward to seeing you soon to hear about your further progress.
Mr Chauhan has been superb. I had a full ACL tear (left knee) and have been concerned that after 2 failed ACL reconstructions on my right knee (via a different consultant a few years ago) I would not regain full stability and strength in my left knee after surgery. The surgery went very well and Mr Chauhan also managed to save my cartilage after it had become folded. This was significant for me as I know first-hand the damage and pain that can be caused by failed/damaged cartilage and it's been perfect (touch wood). Mr Chauhan was very strict with me to ensure I followed the recovery plan in order to better aid my recovery and although it's only been 4 months, I haven't had a single issue. I feel strong and I've gained strength and stability quickly in physio. I trust Mr Chauhan and will be speaking with him about my other ACL issues (right knee) to see if he can work his magic there too.
Thank you very much for taking the time to share your experience. I am very privileged to do a job I love. To see you return you to a higher level of function and to increase the life of your natural joint is my goal. I am delighted you are doing well and I will look at the other knee as soon as you have completed the rehabilitation.
