After being misdiagnosed by a doctor abroad, Mr V, showed and explained what could have happened, I was then sent for an MRI, which showed a total rupture of the Achilles. Within 8 days, I was taken in and operated on, which turned out to be, the worse case scenario, with his expertise and all the staff at the Spire, I am on the mend, it has been 3 months and now it is up to me to get the ankle strong again. Krishna, is a very understanding consultant, who put me in a relaxed state of mind, as I was very worried, a really lovely man, and all the ladies I have had the pleasure of meeting, nurses, reception, physiology and the operating staff have been superb. Thank you for helping me to start getting back to a normal life. Steve Hooker
I had foot surgery at the Spires Roding Hospital, under NHS treatment and cannot praise the staff and treatment I received enough. From the reception staff, who were very welcoming to Mr Vemulapalli the surgeon who operated on me and all the staff in between, everybody treated me with great care and gave me confidence with the treatment I was receiving. Mr Vemulapalli was very thorough with the questions he asked and explained everything to me from the surgery to the after care which gave me every reassurance that I was in safe hands. I would recommend this hospital for its treatment, facilities and staff.
Went to see Mr V with arthritis and a very nasty bunion. After explaining all the options very clearly we decided on a Cartiva implant - it has been only six weeks since the operation and already I feel so much better. I am fully looking forward to being able to wear heels again (but not just yet!). Could not fault this consultant at all. He listened and explained. Would thoroughly recommend him.
I'm a very active woman so to be blighted with severe arthritis in my toe joint was physically and mentally harming to me. Mr V explained my options and we agreed a cartiva toe implant would be a fitting option. The recovery was long and painful but after a year I have almost full use of my foot and I can run, walk, do yoga and can wear decent heels now!
