Mr Somashekar was extremely pleasant and was very helpful in determining and treating my injury. He was more than happy to answer any questions I had regarding the treatment, its side effects and of course if the condition was left untreated. From the outset he wanted surgery to be the last resort but unfortunately due to the nature of my condition it was the only long term solution and the surgery was carried out successfully. In fact post surgery I had to see him about the wound and he made time for me on the same day and addressed my concerned straight away. I was really happy with the care and out interactions.
I have had my ACL reconstructed following a sports injury. Given my past experience with the surgeons, I have had to undergo arthroscopy 3 times over a period of 6 years!! I was fortunate that my case was picked up by Mr. Somasekhar. He had absolute patience to listen and understand my discomfort and also advised me on the next course of action. There is a saying "3rd time lucky" and I must say Mr. Somasekhar was that luck I have had with my knee. I have not felt this well after a procedure right from day 1. I was surprised that I did not need to take any pain killers post op. I was mobile from day1 and my physiotherapists at Mount Vernon says I will be fully fit to get back to my sports in few weeks! Thanks ever so much Mr. Somashekhar and I am grateful to you for your patience and time in my case. We need more people like you. I completely recommend Mr. Somashekar to whoever needs treatment and advise with their knee.
Mr Somashekar saw my mother for a consultation regarding pain in her hip. My mother was very nervous regarding the consultation, however, Mr Somashekar was very understanding of my mother's nerves and pain that she was experiencing, and made her feel extremely at ease during the appointment, he was also very informative with any questions that he was asked. Along with reassuring my mother of any worries that she was experiencing regarding her future if an operation was to go ahead. My mother has received her operation and is now on the road to full recovery, and was extremely happy with the care and dedication that she has received from Mr Somashekar.
Mr Somashekar is a very caring, thoughtful brilliant surgeon , my hip operation was excellent. he listens to you and answers any questions that are worrying you.
