I am pleased to be under care of Mr Vemulapalli as I feel reassured that I am receiving good quality of care. I sustained complex fracture of foot and was referred to Mr Vemulapalli by another orthopaedic consultant. Mr Vemulapalli explained me about sustained injuries, pros & cons of surgery and prognosis. After the surgery I am regularly seeing him in out patient clinics, where he remains quite professional and caring. On one occasion when his Junior doctor reviewed me in clinic, consultant went looking for me outside clinic area as he wanted to review him. This shows his commitment and caring attitude towards his patients. I will definitely recommend him to other patients who require orthopaedic care
My father come from China to visit me. He was accidentally injured in his hips, can not move. The Doctor is very professional and experienced. After the operation, my father can stand up on the second day and was discharged 3 days after operation. It is really amazing. My father is recovering really well now. The Doctor and his team were also very nice and kind. For an instance,He explained in details on what shall we do for post-surgery cares. My father feels very grateful for whatever he and his team have done for him, asked me to write this feedback. Mr Fu
I was treated with respect and dignity. He is very friendly and reassuring. Listened to my concerns especially as I am a nurse and work at Queens. Received my orthotic boot immediately and will commenced physiotherapy next week. I would thoroughly recommend Mr Vemulapalli. Thank you Glenda
Mr Vemulapalli has been monitoring my daughter's hip condition since she was 6 weeks old. When at first, my husband and I were naturally anxious about her condition he was incredibally supportive and reassuring. Initially we were seen as a private patient but later moved to Mr Vemulapalli's NHS clinic, and at all times the care we have received has been excellent. He has an excellent mannor when dealing with children and has made the whole process so much easier than it could have been! We are very grateful for the care we have received over the past 3.5 years.
Mr vemulapalli is a fantastic surgeon. He is extremely knowledgeable and always answers questions in an easy to understand way, explaining everything as he goes along. I have been attending his clinic for about five years now, at queens in Romford, and although the waiting time is really long it is worth the wait to get such excellent treatment. He and all his team are great, many thanks to him for operating on my foot fusion.
