Mr Chana undertook a total hip replacement operation on me in 2015 which went extremely well. My recovery was as per his predictions and I was soon back to normal. I therefore had no hesitation in returning to him in 2021 when the other hip showed signs of wear, Mr Chana successfully undertook the second total hip replacement surgery in May 2021. Both the operation and recovery has been managed well by Mr Chana and his team. I have no hesitation in recommending him for anyone anticipating the need for this type of surgery. A true professional with high levels of skills, empathy with his patients and an excellent, individual to work together with.

Dr Rishi was very highly recommended by my Next door neighbour. It was my first visit last week and I was very impressed with Dr Rishi's excellent service. He made me feel very much at home and answered all my questions very patiently. I highly recommend him. Thank you, Dr Rishi Chana.

As an active 50 year old, I started to suffer considerable hip pain along with the onset of a noticeable limp. I was diagnosed with Avascular necrosis of the right hip and was referred to Mr Chana for a consultation and total hip replacement. During my initial consultation Mr Chana clearly explained the procedure and answered the questions raised. Surgery was booked at the ‘The Princess Margaret Hospital’ and was completed just prior to the Coronavirus lockdown in March 2020. The procedure went well, and I mobilised quickly. Due to the national lockdown, initial follow-ups were conducted by video call and Mr Chana was happy to be contacted directly with any questions or concerns. I was fully recovered by 12 weeks and able to regain my fitness needed for work. During my recovery period, I became aware that I was beginning to experience movement restrictions in the left hip. Subsequent investigation with Mr Chana identified that I had CAM impingement, anterior labral tear, an acetabular cyst and that weight bearing was becoming compromised, I therefore needed a total left hip replacement. Surgery was book again at ‘The Princess Margaret Hospital’ and completed in October 2020. The procedure went well, Mr Chana was able to keep the hip rotator cuff intact this time by performing a ‘piriformis-sparing approach’. This elevated pain levels initially but significantly reduced my recovery time. I was able to walk unaided at 2 weeks and was back to fitness needed for work at 8 weeks. The physiotherapist commented that at 7 weeks post-surgery that I was at a level equal to 12-14 weeks. I have complete faith in recommending Mr Chana and ‘The Princess Margaret Hospital’ – indeed a friend of mine has two hips that need replacement, the first is scheduled with him in February 2021 (lockdown permitting).

I met Mr Rishi Chana a few months ago as a recommendation from another hip consultant as I wanted to weigh up all my options given my recent diagnosis, pincer/cam impingement, labrum tear and secondary arthritis. This was a difficult decision for me mainly because I was quite nervous about surgery and didn't want to be inactive for too long as I am fit and love exercise, however the pain I endured before surgery was so excruciating that I had to make a decision fast. What I really liked about Mr Chana was the fact that he talked me through my physical hip state worse case/best case and was honestly direct which I needed as I like straight talking people it helps you come to terms with what is really going on and certainly aided my decision process. He talked through the procedure, the risks and stats to support success rates etc, I also carried out my own homework on him and felt really safe that I had made the right decision with the right consultant given the results I was aiming for personally. So fast forward I had my hip arthroscopy back in November 2020, so far I have experienced very little pain, only an ache here and there only. I have also small incisions which are barely there with no swelling or bruising and I truly put this down to the skills of Mr Chana. Mr Chana came to see me directly after my surgery to tell me what a success it had been which filled me with such euphoria and hope for a bit more time with my own hip.I feel very lucky today and will continue to take the advice from Mr Chana and my physio to ensure best recovery. I was off my crutches in 2 weeks and have to say I am delighted with this result as I am now full weight bearing with no pain. Mr Chana is an exceptional consultant and I am in awe of what he has done to help me gain some quality of life back and in my recent follow up, (3 weeks post surgery) I have been told I can get back on my bike, yes I have to take it easy and not go crazy however this is the best news ever thanks to him! I cannot thank him and his team enough for the ongoing care and results so far - A massive thanks

I selected Mr Chana in the hope that my groin/hip pain would be manageable (or improved) without surgery - with a significant phobia of medical facilities. Very quickly he diagnosed significant arthritis (bone on bone) in my left hip which was confirmed within minutes with an x-ray and needed a full hip replacement. Mr Chana was great in reassuring me that although he understood my fears that the surgery these days was very quick with minor disruption to muscles/ nerves etc and that the recovery would be quick and relatively pain free. There was no pressure to have the surgery but once the decision was made I was admitted within 2 weeks. Mr Chana guided me through the process with his great office team as Covid restrictions made things a bit trickier than normal. The Schoen facility and staff were great and combined well with Mr Chana to explain at each stage what was going to happen and field my many questions that put me at ease that I was in good hands. I was out of bed 5 hours after surgery and home within 72 hours. Apart from some discomfort and swelling I can honestly say there was very little pain and managed on Ibuprofen from the time I left hospital. I started physio 2 weeks after discharge and was amazed that everyone I met had similar experiences of being up and about and quickly independent, all much older than me. I came off the crutches at about 4 weeks and at 8 weeks had full mobility back with no discomfort and even forget I've had the surgery sometimes, am now back in the gym on the exercise bike and swimming (no breaststroke I promise Mr Chana!) looking forward to further improvements over the coming months.
