I visited Paul after enduring a troublesome right knee after an ACL reconstruction done in 2011 (not by Paul!) he diagnosed a slack and loose ACL and quickly organised a X ray on the same day and an MRI the following. On my follow up appointment and viewing the MRI it confirmed Paul’s suspicions. We then discussed my options as I wanted to be continued with my skiing and be active with my hobby of rowing, Paul fully supported my decision to go ahead with the surgery. Paul is very approachable, he gets a good rapport going quickly working out what your expectations are from the surgery. He answered all my questions and queries clearly, and without any jargon. I felt confident and in very safe hands considering I had had a failed procedure before he clearly has vast experience and knowledge. Surgery was booked within 2 weeks of this follow up appointment and now 12 days post op, I am full weight bearing with no crutches. I am absolutely delighted the knee feels 100% better than ever before. If you follow Paul’s instructions do your physio – exercises – etc. you will not be disappointed.
In August 2019 I consulted Mr Paul Trikha about the acute valgus of my right knee. This is where the right knee is tilted towards the left and the leg from the knee to the ankle is at a right angle. I had given been given exercises to strengthen quads (thigh muscles) by the Physiotherapist Mrs Suegnet Meyer of Meyer & Associates Weybridge whom I had consulted to improve mobility, and she had advised me to have an MRI scan, which I did and when she read the report she suggested a consultation with the renowned knee specialist Mr Trikha. He recommended a TKR (total knee replacement) surgery. I did not want it, but it was explained to me, that my knee was beginning to cause problems with my back. There really was no alternative. The surgery would take place at the Schoen Clinic at the end of August and I would be there for 3 days. Although I continued with my weekly exercises with Mrs Meyer and purchased an exercise bike for home, I became more apprehensive about the forthcoming surgery. Eventually the date arrived. At the Schoen Clinic Mr Trikha came to see me just before surgery, I was so frightened. The surgery was over and after 3 days a 2 week stay at The Claverdel in Guildford followed. My rehab was very good and when I had the 2 weeks after surgery consultation with Mr Trikha, I was walking indoors without crutches. Feeling really confident, two lovely straight knees and able to wear short skirts. This week I had my six weeks after surgery consultation with M Trikha. Now I can drive, walk indoors and outdoors without crutches, my life has been changed and for the better. Daily exercises, looking good and confident. Mr Trikha, I went into surgery really frightened, now six weeks after surgery, I am looking forward with confidence to an exciting future, free from pain, looking good with two lovely straight knees. Thank you!
I had extreme knee pain which Paul recommended an MRI scan straight away. Problem was diagnosed immediately which he recommended Physio on. 4 weeks ago I could barely walk and after seeing him again today, I am nearly back to 100% without needing surgery which is amazing news. Would highly recommended. Thank you Paul.
ACL MCL tear received no surgery but great care and attention with excellent additional physiotherapy. The avoidance of surgery has been of great benefit however in the future if I need further care I shall have no hesitation of returning to Mr Trikha's care.
Paul carried out a knee arthroscopy for a torn cartridge on 27/09/2019 I had been to the GP for knee pain I was then referred for an X Ray at an NHS hospital which proved inconclusive so got an open referral to Paul. Within a minute he diagnosed a torn cartilage which was then confirmed by am MRI Scan the following morning. The procedure was carried out at the Schoen Clinic in London . Paul explained everything all they way through the process from start to finish. The procedure was quick and painless as was the recovery. I was walking by the end of the day carried out all the necessary exercises in the following days and the pain was easily managed by a couple of nurofen. I would not hesitate to recommend Paul he is an expert in his field and all my pain has now gone following the operation.
