My interests include playing cricket, reading, travelling, spending time with my family and experimenting with Indian cooking.
I was admitted to Queens with a fractured neck of femur due to a fall from a cycle. Mr vemulapalli was totally explicit in the pros and cons of various surgical procedures. He explained how replacement would enable quicker recovery, but in the long run is more likely to need a further replacement and would requiring more restrictions in the short term.
My daughter injured her ankle while dancing and after being recommended to Mr V we went to see him. He always took the time to listen and explained everything very clearly to both of us. He engaged with my daughter and ensured that she understood what was happening to her ankle and her options. We all agreed to try non surgical treatment at first but as my daughter was heavily into her dancing it soon became clear that she would need surgery. Again, Mr V explained everything very clearly and did not sugar coat anything for her. She knew what she was going to be going through and what to expect. Surgery was successful and my daughter is now back to her full dancing capacity again. I could not recommend Mr V enough to anyone needing specialist treatment.
My 2 year old daughter was seen by Mr V and was diagnosed with Metatarsal Adductus a deformity of the foot. I had been worried as she had very poor balance and continuously tripped. Mr V was so kind and reassured me that although she would be in plaster for @ 6 weeks it was better to get it treated straight away, he also said that she would adapt easily to the plaster, which she did. Her foot is now straight and her balance almost perfect. Mr V is going to keep seeing her for a while as she has special boots to keep her foot straight as she grows. He has such a kind and carrying attitude that gives you confidence and I would not hesitate to recommend Mr V to anyone.
This is the first time Mr Vemulapalli had treated me for foot reconstructive surgery. From Day One Mr V was thorough with his examination. He was very clear as to what treatment was required and step by step transition of recovery was also discussed. I would totally recommend Mr V and if ever I required foot surgery again I would have every confidence to know I was in safe hands with Mr V. I was worried as I had large rods going into my toes but with safe instruction and guidance this was not as bad as I had expected thanks to Mr V's honesty of step by step progress of what to expect. I am so grateful and happy with my much prettier toes and less painful foot too! Thank you.
Dr Vemulapalli was very helpful and listened to our concerns, he made my daughter feel at ease. Dr Vemulapalli recommended an ultra sound in order to make sure everything was ok, he was very thorough. I am very pleased with how professional he is.
