After a previous failed ACL reconstruction by another surgeon, I recently had a revision ACL reconstruction by Mr Trikha. From the initial consultation, I immediately felt in safe hands, and the treatment I received from him was second to none. The surgery was a complete success, and scaring is very minimal. I had a full range of movement and was walking unaided without crutches within 2 weeks post op. Would definitely recommend! Helen S
I was getting intense pain, at regular intervals without warning at the back of my knee that left me unable to put my leg down and hardly able to move an inch for anything from 10mins to a couple of hours. I knew I had arthritis in the knee, but this was very different. It devastated my life, not knowing when it would hit. I am a total whimp, I hate pain, needles blood etc. However I could not live with this. I saw Mr Trikha , I was extremely nervous and basically "afraid". He was very factual, did not skip the bad news and said a knee replacement is almost certainly in my future. But he was also very reassuring. He said that Keyhole surgery to look at the "debris" and the "abnormality" seen in the scan of the knee might solve the current problem. But also, it may not work then its the replacement road. It was my decision. I came out of the Runnymede that day with an operation scheduled for early the following week. Amazingly, in one short session, I found I had complete confidence in him. I was not over worried about the op, and expected him to do a good job. He came to see me after I came round and explained his findings. It was refreshing and I went home with peace of mind. I may have been lucky, but I have not had any real pain even doing all the physiotherapy. It is two weeks since the op. I am walking without pain or support. I can now straighten my leg completely, and am much more mobile thanks to the operation. Physio is ensuring I don't lose that renewed flexibility. I like the way Mr Trikha dictates his letters whilst you are listening, so you can comment if anything is not understood. Seeing his confident in himself and his team really did take some of the fear away for me. I have already recommended him to others. I hope the devastating attacks don't happen again, but if they do or I do need a knee replacement I wont have any hesitation whatsoever in coming back to Mr Trikha. I must add my thanks to the entire team in the Runnymede who made my whole stay very comfortable and truly felt everyone was providing excellent care. JE
I had an ACL in my right knee which Paul operated on, the service was excellent and treatment he gave me was amazing. soon as I walked in he looked after myself and provided me perfect advice. He also provided great physiotherapist in the name of Martin O'Connell. Thanks Paul!
Following an arthroscopy on my right knee 5 years ago (my fourth but the first on me by Mr Trikha) I had no hesitation in returning to him for a total knee replacement. He was honest with the amount of hard work needed post op but assured me it would reap dividends. I had disposed of my crutches by the time of the two week follow up and removal of the staples, by the six week follow up I have almost full range of movement back and whilst the knee is still a little swollen I don't have any pain and have returned to light gym work. Aiming for skiing in February - Mr Trikha, and the physio think that is a real possibility (time will tell!). The general care I received from Mr Trikha and the Nuffield, Woking was exemplary and Mr Trikha's humour kept me smiling immediately post op. Would I recommend him? Absolutely, and without reservation. RF
