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.
Right Total Knee Replacement. Monday 9th December 2019.Mr. Chauhan discussed all aspects of my condition in graphic detail & only when I chose which avenue to go down did he start to prepare me for the surgical option. He was at the bedside within 2hrs. of returning to my room, & continued to visit during my hospital stay & subsequent discharge. ( 2 days ). I saw him 5 weeks to the day post-op & am not exaggerating when I say how surprised he was at my recovery. I am walking 1-2 miles a day, as I live on the Thames estuary, the beach has been my savior. Walking on the sand 2 weeks post op improved the tightness in my hamstring like no other exercise. My leg is straight, I have no pain, my gait taller & confident. At 6 weeks post-op I return to work as a Healthcare assistant, driving & independent once again. We have a wealth of such talent in Britain. Definitely a FANTASTIC orthopaedic surgeon to choose.
This doctor's caring and listening skills are very evident. He has taken the time to listen attentively to me and to respond appropriately. Following his in-depth verbal investigations he completed a physical and x-ray examination of my condition. This was done with care and concern for the pain and discomfort I was experiencing. While carrying out this consultation he also engaged professionally with the nursing staff in attendance to ensure they were fully involved in my medical care. I was left with a feeling of positivity that, as his patient, I was in very capable and caring hands. I was also surprisingly and pleasanty educated by him in the causes and cures of my condition. His detailed explanations and advice on pain and mobility management means that while awaiting surgery, I am able to put in place the exercise and lifestyle regimes he recommended that I have found to be of immense benefit.
Pleasant manner, listened to patient feedback, offered useful advice with firm instructions to reinforce best self-help treatment. Explained all options available, both NHS and private. Inspired confidence and encouragement.
I had been experiencing progressive hip pain for the last three years, after climbing the pain ladder from Paracetamol-codeine eventually pain patches and exhausting other pain relief methods, no other option remained other than a hip replacement. Following consultation with Mr Chauhan he was confident that whilst surgery may be a daunting experience for a patient all would be good. I can assure anyone that the hip pain is removed, no more hobbling around, no pain standing up and finally having back the ability of walking like a human being again. I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Mr Chauhan and I take this opportunity of thanking him and his staff from start to finish for making me pain free. It's possible that in future years my other hip will require surgery, once again I will return to the Doctor who fixed the first one. With thanks and gratitude to Mr Chauhan.
I ruptured my ACL 14 years ago and Mr Chauhan performed the operation and it still feels good to this day. Back then he was a breath of fresh air in terms of his chair side manner and approach along with the end result which helped me to have my knee repaired. This allowed me to exercise again which i'm so passionate about, I will always be very grateful to him because of this. I recently visited him again for a different issue with the other knee and found him to be exactly how i remembered, with the same high level of compassion and care towards me. The symptoms this time did not result in an operation but we discussed an exercise regime to moderate and control the problem. Mr Chauhan provided me with the reassurance i needed that everything was going to be ok. He has a very caring and kind nature and will actively listen to your problem. You feel safe and confident under his care. I would highly recommend him.
