I found Mr Somashekar to be very personable and easy to communicate with. I had surgery on my right knee to remove torn cartilage. The outcome of the operation was exceptional with me being able to walk and place weight on the affected knee the same day as surgery.The surgery has almost been completely without pain and has resolved my pain and symptoms and given me full range of movement again I would highly recommend this surgeon
I went to see Mr Naresh Somashekar after suffering a knee injury playing football. I have been playing football for most of my life and was devastated when I suffered my injury as I could not play until I had some sort of surgery on my knee. I was welcomed by a lovely smile and calming voice at my consultation which instantly eased my anxiety. I told Mr Naresh Somashekar where I was having my pain as it was quite centralised on the outer part of my right knee. After prodding (don't know the medical term) with my knee Mr Naresh Somashekar advised that I may have some lateral meniscus tear. (My worst nightmare came true). I was disappointed as I had some big summer football tournaments coming up and was desperate to get back playing and fit for the first one which starts on 26th May 2018. Mr Naresh Somashekar was very understanding and empathetic as he could see how much this meant to me. It was evident that he held my personal goals of getting back playing football very seriously. He went out of his way to try to book an OP date as soon as possible. I was very lucky that when he checked for me there had been a cancellation! so I was pretty much booked in within weeks of seeing Mr Naresh Somashekar. I was operated on 17th March 2018 at Mount Vernon Hospital. I was referred into physiotherapy at Hillingdon Hospital within a week or so, I completed 5 weeks of a knee class with a personal recovery plan (Lisa brilliant Physio, Highly recommend). I am writing this on 18/05/18, I am already back playing football at an intense level and I will achieve my goal of competing in my first summer football tournament on 26th May 2018. I highly highly recommend Mr Naresh Somashekar to anyone who has a sports or football injury. This guy knows exactly what he is talking about and makes sure that you also understand. Very intelligent and empathetic doctor. Can not speak highly of this Doctor. The only negative side is that is supports Arsenal lol :( S NAWAZ
A very supportive consultant who is definitely passionate and goal oriented in presenting the best available treatment and care to his patients in his field of speciality
I recently underwent a half knee replacement under MR.Somashekar at Mount Vernon Hospital. It took 2 years 6 months since reporting my very painful knee ot my GP before receiving surgery. Apart from a wee hiccup with my lack of pain relief the evening after my operation which was due to a breakdown in communication between the anaesthetist and the ward staff I was immensely impressed with the whole/complete experience in a successful operation. I feel the post op Physiotherapy is greatly targeted at the very elderly/infirm and not productive or helpful with suitable rehab advice for persons like myself who is still working and active. I have seen Mr.Somashekar on a number of occasions at Hillingdon Hospital since the operation and feel very impressed with his manner and feeling towards patient (my) wellbeing.
He is a fantastic person and a very good doctor. He went out of his way to organise all my investigations and then start my treatment. He is a good listener and calms all your anxieties immediately. As a doctor myself, I would trust him with all my orthopaedic problems and would always value his opinion most.
