He put my mind at rest and allayed all my fears. he made me feel at ease and I was very pleased with the surgery which has lead to an improvement in my lifestyle.
Mr Punwar did a great job removing obstructions in my knee and in the follow up explained what he did and how the problem occurred. An excellent service from him and his team at Torbay Hospital.
Glad you're doing well. Arthroscopic loose body removal can definitely improve mechanical symptoms. Many thanks for the review. Best Wishes SP
I was, in fact referred to the Plastics Team in Exeter by this wonderful man. After a traumatic accident taking the tip of my finger off , I received excellent care from all staff that I came into contact with . It wasn't until I very nearly went to have my finger 'trimmed ' down to 'tidy ' it that Mr Shah Punwar stepped in and suggested that more could be done to save my finger. He arranged for an appointment to be made in Exeter the following week to have reconstructive surgery. I am over the moon with the results and cannot thank this kind man enough for his attention and care.
So glad it all worked out well. The thanks go to the excellent Plastics Team at the RD&E. Best Wishes SP

Thank you for taking the time to give feedback, glad you're doing well. Best Wishes SP
I had a half knee replacement at the end of January performed by Mr Punwar. I could not have wished for a better surgeon to perform my operation, all patients want to know everything that the surgeon is going to do to them, it;s there body and it affects the rest of their life. Shah was both professional and at the same time down to earth, speaking in layman's language so ever detail of what he was going to do was understood. He is a busy man but always has the time to chat and make the patient feel completely at ease. It has been six months now and I am walking reasonably well, sometimes 2 or 3 miles. I still get a bit of pain if I walk for a long time, but generally, I'm walking better than before the operation with less pain. I have stopped taking the pain killers and use voltarol gel to cope if I do get pain. I am sure in 12 months time I will be totally pain-free and feel my operation performed by Shah is a complete success. All I can say to Mr Shah Punwar is, thank you so much.
Thank you for your kind comments. It can take some time for things to settle down after a joint replacement. Glad to hear you're progressing well.
