Mr Buddhdev is amazing. He has a massive heart and I genuinely believe that he wants the best for my child. He explained to us both what was wrong with her knee, and at a level that we both understood. He was explained the treatment that was needed and what the recovery process would be like. He was kind, caring and compassionate and takes time to listen to how we are both feeling.

Ourselves and our daughter have had a wonderful experience with Mr Buddhdev. Having faced the daunting diagnosis of Hip Dysplasia aged one year old, we are so grateful to have found Mr Buddhdev. From our first appointment, his caring, informative, pragmatic and progressive approach gave us the confidence that our daughter was in safe hands, and that we could collectively tackle the issue. This also extended to his excellent team, including Helen, who provided brilliant care to all three of us. In terms of the operation itself, and the follow-up, he was clear about what would happen and his revolutionary single leg spica cast meant our daughter was far less impacted in the time afterwards. Overall, our family highly recommends Mr Buddhdev.

My daughter and I went to see Mr Pranai Buddhdev about her spine. He instantly put us both at ease with his sense of humour and warm manner. When he told us that my daughter had scoliosis, he was extremely reassuring, explained all the next steps thoroughly to us both and reassured us again - this wasn't a diagnosis we expected. I hope we get to see him again in her follow up treatment. Thank you.

I am delighted to share my experience with Mr. Pranai Buddhdev, aka The Kids Bone Doctor, who provided exceptional care for my son when he broke his fibula, fractured his tibia and required wires to secure his growth plate. From the moment we walked into the clinic, Mr. Buddhdev's professionalism and expertise were evident. He immediately put us at ease with his friendly and confident demeanor and candor. He took the time to thoroughly explain the xrays, treatment options and what to expect during the recovery process, ensuring that we felt informed and supported every step of the way. Throughout my son's treatment journey, Mr. Buddhdev demonstrated genuine care and dedication. He answered all of our questions succinctly and addressed any concerns we had, ensuring we felt supported and confident in the treatment plan. His compassionate approach not only reassured my son but also helped alleviate the stress and anxiety that often accompany such situations. Thanks to Mr. Buddhdev's expertise and dedication, my son's recovery has been smooth, successful and timely. We are incredibly grateful for the outstanding care he provided and cannot recommend him highly enough.

Our 3 year old daughter was diagnosed with hip dysplasia from a different hospital and within 6 months Dr Bhuddhev had not only seen her for examination but also performed the surgery to correct the displacement. All through, I felt informed and our daughter given the best care. Post surgery, he and his team have been so supportive and quick to addressing any questions or concerns.
