Mr Somashekar was appointed as a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at Hillingdon and Mount Vernon Hospitals in 2011. His Orthopaedic training was in London in the St Mary’s/ Charing Cross/Chelsea and Westminster Hospital Rotation with Fellowship training in Knee and Sports injury at the Jonathan Webb Clinic, Bristol and Trauma Surgery at St Mary’s Trauma Centre, Paddington. Mr Somashekar has written and contributed to publications in the field of knee surgery. He teaches medical students and junior doctors including specialist trainees in Orthopaedics. Knee: Mr Somashekar’s special interest is treatment of knee cartilage and ligament injuries as well as arthritis in young and old patients. Knee procedures : ACL reconstruction (ligament reconstruction), Knee arthroscopy (cartilage repair), Total knee replacement, Unicompartmental knee replacement (partial), Patello-femoral knee replacement (knee cap), Patellar re-alignment surgery- Tibial Tubercle Transfer and MPFL(Medial Patello-Femoral Ligament) reconstruction; High Tibial osteotomy. Hip procedures: Total hip replacement
Mr Somashekar provided me with excellent care during 2 knee operations carried out in 2018 to repair my ACL. Having raptured my ACL in a footballing accident back in the 90’s, the original repair gave way again in 2017 whilst carrying out exercises as part of a boot camp class. Following an initial consultation and MRI scan, Mr Somashekar’s expertise identified that the reconstruction would require 2 operations, the first to remove metalwork installed under the original operations and to carry out a bone graft, with the second operation to carry out the new repair. The first operation proved to be more problematic that first envisaged, as removing the old screws turned out to be difficult. However Mr Somashekar’s surgical skills, aftercare and rehabilitation advice ensured that this operation went well allowing the second surgery to take place as planned. Due to this care and attention the second operation went smoothly and without issues. His rehabilitation programme and recommendation for a physiotherapist following surgery have both played a big part in my speedy recovery. This allowed me to get back to the gym at the end of the first month and road cycling after 3 months. I would like to thanks Mr Somashekar and his dedicated team at the BMI Bishops Wood hospital for the great care that I received. I would also have no hesitation in recommending Mr Somashekar to anyone considering treatment within his field of expertise as, like me, I’m sure you will have a first class experience.
Mr Somashekar provided me with excellent care from start to finish, of my ACL reconstruction and meniscus repair. He provided excellent surgery, which left minimal scars and left me comfortable to be discharged within the same day of the surgery. 4 months on from surgery, I have followed his advice and a physio’s advice, that he recommended. This advice and training programme has led to me making a great recovery within 4 months of surgery. I feel if i did not have Mr. Somashekar from the start, then I perhaps would not be in the position I’m I right now, of being as strong as I was before the injury, in such a quick time. Fantastic surgeon and very easy to communicate with and provided 0 problems from start to finish.
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
