In March 2018 I tore my right ACL during Skiing. My tennis coach had strongly advised to see Kash immediately for recovery. I met Kash exactly a week after the accident and within minutes of discussing my injury, i knew i was being treated by an extreme professional, kind hearted orthopedic. In our first consultation Kash spent time understanding how important my active lifestyle is & thoroughly explained the importance of rehabilitation before & after surgery if i decide to proceed with the operation. Kash had also accurately predicted I had also torn my meniscus as well as the ACL. By the second review & after an MRI scan, Kash discussed with me in detail about the use of hamstring, patellar tendon & allografts for ACL reconstruction. He also discussed with me the risks of bleeding, infection, scars, neurovascular injury & any future surgery. Kash also explained in the case of performing a meniscus repair during surgery, that I would be in a knee brace for 6 weeks & on crutches with partial or non-weight bearing depending on what was required. With ongoing reviews with Kash, i became more knowledgeable, confident & prepared for the surgery. I was mentally & physically ready, especially knowing i was being treated by Kash. His follow up notes after each review kept me informed & educated throughout my recovery. Kash's attention to detail & drive clearly shows how passionate he is about helping people improve their lives after injury. Kash closely monitored my physio & rehabilitation progress before & after surgery. He recommended cold-compression devices to help with the swelling and daily exercises to keep up at home. I was truly touched to hear his story about my operation after, when he showed me the video & explained that he had also performed a notchplasty. As Kash knew playing Tennis & keeping active was very important to me, he was able to make the decision to repair the meniscus so i could continue with sports in the future. After surgery, I could not wait to see Kash at each review, as i felt re-assured & confident that i was on the right track with my progress. I trusted Kash from the first consultation & today i am back on the tennis court, running again & back to my daily active lifestyle. I will always highly recommend Kash to anyone in need of an Orthopaedic & re-assure them that they are in safe hands. Thank you Kash for my smooth & successful recovery. I learnt so much in the past year & will miss our reviews. Sheena

Kash was a great guy and from the outset I had faith in him, he repaired my knee and got me moving in days. Kash is now my go to knee guy and I recommend him to anyone who needs a surgeon. I could not have asked for a better surgeon who told me straight, kept me informed and to top it off does great work.

My ACL was broken from a Ski injury in March 2018. I did my MRI and first met Kash in April. Kash did explain with all the detaims what exactely happened inside my knee, what can be done and if we don’t do it how I can live without a surgery. There was no pressure at all, I had all, all the informations I needed to do the right decision. I decided to do Physio to enjoy my holidays and then to call him if would decide to do the operation and I did. In June, I was mentally and physically prepared, he understood my situation and did an amzing job on repairing my ACL. Before the operation, I was explained exactely what would happen, then after the operation He showed me the video of what happened and I was amazed. He kept all hos words, I felt totally reassured all the way. He is really carefull with his patient and was all the way in touch with my physio to make sure I get the best recovery. 5 weeks post physio now, Kash offered the best knowmedge and guidelines and my recovery is on a great track, I listened applied, he listened and cared about the best recovery for my leg. Thank you again. I feel that I received the best positive care for my knee.

I recently managed to tear my meniscus after tearing an ACL much earlier, for which I underwent physiotherapy 8 or so years ago. I was initially seen by a colleague of Kash, who had arranged for initial diagnosis and MRI done. After assessing my injury and MRI images, I was recommended to see Kash to get his surgical opinion. Kash has, from the outset, been a very good listener and at the first session went through all potential options ranging from doing nothing, repairing / cutting the meniscus only or attending to both the meniscus and ACL. I was naturally very apprehensive about having a surgery, but found Kash very honest and reassuring. He made it clear it is my choice only, and recommended either meniscus only or mensicus and ACL done at the same time. In the end, I decided to get the meniscus injury resolved in the first place and would think about addressing the ACL later. After deciding for the surgery, Kash has informed me of the whole process ahead, what exactly will be done and the time it would take to recuperate. I had loads of questions throughout and Kash had always intently listened and answered all my questions in full. He had also made clear all the potential risks, including that in most cases, my sort of injury could not be repaired. On the day of surgery, Kash had attended before the operation and once again explained what he will exactly perform. This was followed by more nurse visits. After surgery, Kash had been among the first ones to visit, explaining, he was in fact able to repair the injury for which I am very grateful. I continued meeting Kash after surgery to track progress recovering and now, 3 months after the surgery, my knee is back to its former self. All in all, I have only positive things to share about Kash. The whole process, from seeing Kash for the first time, going through all the possible options to repair the injury, through to surgery and post-surgery recovery, has been positive. I would not hesitate to recommend Kash to anybody in need of fixing a problem with the knee. As I said to Kash before, I regad him as a sort of a magician - he has managed to fix my knee to the extent I don't believe anybody else would. And for that, i am very grateful.

Kash provided brilliant professional care for my recurrent knee injury (inflamed TBL and meniscus tear). I am grateful that he was able to formulate a sensible treatment (i.e. physio rather than surgery) that accounted for my sporting event. Kash clearly command specialist knowledge but also demonstrated empathy to explain the physiological aspects of the injury. His admin team ensures the appointments go smoothly so I encountered problem with access. Thank you, Kash, for a job well done.
