After having a Left hip replacement on the 24th of June 21 at Park Hill hospital, i fully recommend Mr Shankar Thiagarajah and the rest of the team there. From the very first consultation any concerns were listened to and addressed, and his friendly ,but professional manner, was very reassuring. The surgery itself and subsequent recovery being uneventful and surprisingly quick, with the wound healing very well, leaving just a thin scar. During the two day stay, i also received great support from the nursing staff who kept me painfree, and the physios, who gave me advise on exercises to aid aid my recovery. Information leaflets and any equipment needed was provided on discharge, Just over two weeks after the actual op, i was off crutches, and absolutely pain free for the first time in over a year. I would like to say another BIG thank you to Mr Thiagarajah, i can only echo the words of others when i say you really have given me my life back.

I had previously had a traumatic experience with a right hip replacement. I was put under Mr Thiagarajah's care and cannot recommend him highly enough. From the first meeting he put my nerves at ease and gave me a confidence in himself and to move forward. Mr Thiagarajah replaced my left hip, little to no bruising, excellent scar, only pain than can be expected instead of the agony from the right hip replacement, listened and took onboard my concerns, put me at ease and basically left me pain free for the first time in 10 years. I feel I have gained my life back.

Profile

Shankar’s Consultant NHS post is based at Doncaster & Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals. He specialises in hip & knee replacement & revision surgery and young adult hip preservation surgery. He is dual post-CCT fellowship trained – in hip & knee arthroplasty/reconstruction at the Mount Sinai Hospital, Toronto, Canada (mentored by Professor Allan Gross and Dr David Backstein), and young adult hip preservation surgery at University College London Hospital, London, UK (mentored by Mr Johan Witt). Born and raised in the south of England, Shankar qualified at the University of Manchester (2003) and was trained on the South Yorkshire Orthopaedic Rotation. In 2017, Shankar was awarded a PhD (University of Sheffield), for his multi-centre study investigating the “Genetics of hip osteoarthritis and hip shape”. He has several awards including the prestigious New Investigator Recognition Award at the 2014 Orthopaedic Research Society Meeting in New Orleans, USA. He was also a finalist in the Arthritis-Research UK Young Investigator competition at the 2013 British Orthopaedic Association meeting. Whilst always retaining high levels of patient safety and patient care, Shankar provides an innovative, personalised service, employing the latest evidence-based practices. Shankar’s knowledge of the latest techniques in peri-operative management and the use of complementary digital technology has led to the development of a same-day discharge programme for selective hip and knee replacement patients. Procedures Shankar performs include all aspects of hip and knee replacement and revision surgery including the minimally-invasive direct anterior approach hip replacement. This approach has been widely shown to accelerate post-operative recovery, getting patients back to work and sport quicker. Additionally, he performs the full gamut of hip preservation procedures including the periacetabular osteotomy and hip arthroscopy. Shankar’s interests include football, cricket, photography and spending time with his young family.
