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.
He is a fantastic guy aswell as a good doctor. I thought my knee wouldn't be the same again but surgery has given me newfound confidence. I have my full trust in Mr Somashekar he was always very professional and helpful with any questions I had, whilst being genuinely friendly.
“I can’t speak more highly of him" I am writing this to say thank you so much for the wonderful care I received as a patient in both Mount Vernon and Hillingdon hospital. I was in such extreme pain and could hardly walk and desperately needed two hip replacements. Mr.Somashekar couldn't have been more helpful and kept me up to date with everything. He is such a kind, caring and knowledgeable doctor and deserves recognition for his lovely approach to his patients. Mr.Somashekar made sure I didn't have to suffer too long and cannot thank him enough for getting my life back again. I owe him so much. I would also just like to express my thanks and praise to all his team and the clinic staff.
