Mr Tibrewal completed his Higher Surgical training on the prestigious Percival Pott Orthopaedic rotation in London culminating in gaining his Fellowship to the Royal College of Surgeons in Trauma & Orthopaedic Surgery. He then embarked upon Fellowship training in Knee and Hip Surgery at international centres of excellence in Sydney (The Mater Hospital), Melbourne (The Royal Melbourne Hospital & Epworth Hospital) and Oxford (The Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre). He is fellowship trained in lower limb reconstruction and trauma surgery and his sub-specialty interests include primary and revision knee arthroplasty, soft tissue and arthroscopic knee surgery, knee preservation surgery and sports injuries.
Have had two ops on my knee over the last 4 months which has been tough. However, my experience with everyone at Lewisham has been fantastic. Saket is a great Dr and surgeon but also a great communicator!
Even though I did not have my first appointments with Dr. Tibrewal, he was in charge of my knee surgery and follow-up appointments. He was very helpful, and explain everything very clear, he had a very reassuring and positive attitude which made a slightly stressful experience much more manageable. My overall experience with the NHS was not very positive due to a few mistakes and long time waiting, but that has nothing to do with Dr. Tibrewal, and I would gladly put myself on his hands again.
Mr Tibrewal was very engaged, good at listening and clear in explaining my options and the future of my knee. He has been thorough throughout - importantly, he has not neglected to tell me anything important or said anything misleading. My ACL repair has gone as well as I could have hoped.
My initial appointment with Mr Tibrewal was really impressive. He listened, understood and I came away feeling really reassured that he was taking the issue seriously, understanding the impact my condition was having on me. After carrying out scans we discussed all options, with his expertise and taking into account my personal experience of the condition I felt confident that we came to a conclusion together for the best course of treatment, even to the point where he gave me the option of which knee to operate on. Having sufford from this condition for over 18 years it's the first time I felt like there was a considered treatment in consultation with me. I felt mr Tibrewal clearly discussed the options and impact of the treatments available and listened to my concerns at all times Following surgery ( of which for me was a surprising outcome of longer term recovery) I had a follow up appointment with mr tibrewals consultant - this felt a little pointless as the consultant wasn't talking from experience of going inside the knee and was just looking at rough notes. It was only at the 6 weeks post op stage I could discuss properly with mr Tibrewal. As I'd also had emergency surgery on the other knee this it useful to have time to discuss and understand the impact of both surgeries. I was dissapointed not to have been able to see mr Tibrewal for both treatments, due to my location at the time of my accident this was not possible. I feel I trusted mr tibrewals recommendations much greater than other consultants at the Royal free. I have been really impressed by mr tibrewals consistent genuine care and understanding and clarity in communicating possible treatments and outcomes. I am very thankful for his time, care and expertise.
When the doctor explained to me what he will do to my knee he made it so easy ant complicated very well explained i felt very comfortable , it's important to have a good communication with the doctor it helps a lot , you can't imagine how i apriciate his help I can't thank him I was in constant pain he changed my live I can train again and I'm thinking to comeback to compete in my sport which something I thought I will never be able to do it again !! I don't have words to thank him Many thanks doctor . Samir Morchid
