I first met with Paul Trikha mid February 2017 after returning home to UK from a trip to New Zealand and South East Asia. I was in severe pain as a result of a ruptured Baker's cyst in my left knee and associated consequences. This man moves fast which I was delighted with and very encouraged! Within 2 hours of the first consultation, I had a ultrasound scan; this was followed by an MRI scan within 48 hours and a second consultation a few hours later. The diagnosis was completed within 3 days. Thereafter I started on 2 months of physiotherapy (which is now completing), home exercises and the acquisition of an exercise bike all of which have set me on the road to recovery, now about 95% complete. I cannot recommend Mr T enough to anyone reading these patients' comments. See him as soon as you can if your circumstances dictate, you will not regret it! Thank you very much Paul.
Mr Trikha first saw me at St Peters hospital, where he diagnosed me correctly without even needing an MRI (he didn't realise one had already been done), and was able to immediately confirm his diagnosis. He then gave me every opportunity to ask questions, explained what a PCL rupture meant in clear terms, and recommended I try physic to mitigate my symptoms. When I then saw him several months later privately, as my symptoms had not resolved, he was realistic and provided me with a very level-headed assessment of my situation, enabling me to decide to go ahead with the surgery. Once I had decided, he made every effort to ensure I had the surgery at a time most suitable for me, as I had an important field trip that I would need to be recovered for. Within 2 working days I was in surgery, which went well and enabled me to recover over Christmas. Mr Trikha was firm about my limits in the acute phase post-surgery (especially when I wanted to do more than would have been wise), and very efficient when I returned for a post-op assessment 4 weeks later. He is the epitome of professionalism, and my knee now has (4 months on - I had PCL and PLC reconstruction using my own hamstrings) full range of movement, I'm back in the gym and working on strengthening my muscles in order to be able to make pre-season training! I really can't thank him enough for his work, my knee feels great, and I've got a beautifully neat scar!
I had a skiing accident in Geneva on the 10th of February, I flew back not knowing how badly damaged my knee was but it was extremely painful and swollen with also not being able to straighten. I had to have an emergency operation under trauma on the NHS. My knee had 3 fractures and I had also ruptured my ACL ligament very badly. I ended up staying in hospital for 5 days as my leg had to be also straightened. Dr Paul Trikha has done a great job on my knee with very small scaring, my leg is looking great and it is feeling far better than it was. I am now able to touch weight on my foot but still unable to bend and walk without my crutched. I still have a very long way to go but so far I am very pleased with the outcome. Tamzin Hughes
After suffering from a severe index patellar dislocation on my right knee, this was a very traumatic experience and time for me due to the nature of injury. Under the care of the NHS Hospital at Chertsey I had spent weeks on strong pain relief and crutches, in all a lengthy time recovering from significant swelling and bony bruising. This was an extremely difficult time for me to see how I was going to recover fully and the anxiety of having to undergo major surgery. My parents were very concerned with the nature of my injury and how this would affect my mobility at a young age. We had decided to carryout research on recommended specialists for a second opinion with our local GP and on the Internet, and Mr Paul Trikha was highly recommended. It was nice and refreshing to have someone who was professional, friendly and straight to the point, and in simple medical terms fully explained the injury I had sustained, the diagnosis based on the reports and MRI scans and prognosis. All the possible medical options had been discussed and explained, however, Mr Trikha’s advice and recommendations were to avoid surgery at this present time and adopt a non-invasive surgical approach with a clear and medically structured 1st stage treatment plan for specialist physiotherapy under his care and guidance. I am writing to tell you how thankful and grateful I am to you and your support team, the through and after care process has given me a lot of reassurance and restored my confidence to be more mobile and proactive physically as my knee range and movement is now stable through the rehabilitation treatment plan under your care. A professional orthopedic knee specialist surgeon who has great expertise in his field and I would highly recommend his professional medical services. Many thanks RH
I had my right knee replaced in May 2014 by Paul Trikha who was the only surgeon who would actually listen to me and agreed to perform the operation despite the fact that I was only 50! I had absolutely no quality of life prior to the operation but it wasn't long before all that changed. I knew at the time of my first operation that my left knee would also need replacing in the future but I was able to hold on almost 3 years before returning to see him. I had my left knee replaced on 31st January 2017 and six weeks on the difference is amazing! Paul is a no nonsense surgeon (which I really like) who explains everything and is, in my opinion, absolutely brilliant at what he does. I have already recommended him to a friend who actually had his operation on the same day as me and he is also delighted with the results. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone. Thank you Paul you have changed my life. AW
