I have now been under the care of Mr Vemulapalli for several years for different ailments. He is always friendly, thorough and I have complete confidence in his care and treatment recommendations. He always makes me feel at ease and explains everything in a way I can understand and takes time to answer any questions I have.
I could not have asked for better care and attention from Mr Vemulapalli. He explained exactly what was wrong with my foot very quickly soon after the diagnosis arrangements were made for the operation. Although I am not fully recovered I am getting there, and that is thanks to Mr Vemulapalli and his team.
I had broken and dislocated my ankle then walked on it for 2 weeks with out realising, when I finally sort out an x-ray it was 27th December, the NHS was over ran and I would not be able to see anyone about a potential operation I obviously needed for at least a week. I am fortunate enough to have health care through a company scheme and amazingly found Mr V and got an appointment for the same day, 28th December. During our first consultation Mr V was sympathetic, helpful, and I was astounded when he phoned the anaesthesiologist and booked theatre for the 29th December and in I went, the next day for my ankle to be plated and pinned. Clearly having walked on it for 2 weeks and lets say I am a slightly larger lady, I had done quite a lot of damage and the healing process had started but the bone was setting all wrong. The operation went well and I was packed off for 2 weeks to lay on my back no weight baring at all! Considering all the damage I had done I was only in plaster 5 week, after I didn't need and air boot, 4 month later I have no limp and apart from the scar, which is incredibly neat, you would never know what I had done. Of course I have had to put in a lot of effort into phisyo and my own rehab but I was told in no uncertain terms if its not hurting your not doing it right! and if I like the pyisyo its not a good sign! I would not hesitate in recommending Mr V to anyone with a similar ankle injury. he listened to me, he was sympathetic, he was honest and he was caring
I have had three ankle operations by Mr Vemulapalli. All three were successful and the level of care I received was exceptional.
Mr V was fantastic from my very first consultant appointment to my surgery and aftercare. He made me feel at ease and I had every confidence in him. Really lovely man.
