A welcoming doctor explained very clearly what surgery was required for a knee damaged by an accident. Surgery date was deferred due to the pandemic, a replacement involved coming to Springfield for the one operation on a convenient date which was done. An apparently entirely successful operation has been followed up with a clear long term prognosis. Could not have been more pleased both with Doctor and the excellent service from Ramsay Health and the team of nurses working in very difficult circumstances due to the pandemic.

Replacing both your knees surgically is a daunting to contemplate, doubly so during an epidemic. Mr Shankar has been the perfect consultant listening to and answering my concerns, performing the surgery expertly and establishing and checking on recovery.

I have just undergone a hip replacement by Mr Shankar. I am 6 weeks post op and am managing to walk without a stick indoors, still need to use the stick for longer walks outside the house. I am extremely happy with my new hip and at every consultation appointments I had with Mr Shankar he explained clearly the procedures and experience I would be going through. I would definitely recommend Mr Shankar for orthopedic surgery . I still need a replacement knee and would like Mr Shankar to preform this procedure for me in the further.

Mr Shankar from our first appointment was wonderful .He really could see the impact of the diseased hip was having on my Mother's quality of life. She is 95 and is living with other health conditions as you can imagine so was not with out risk . Mr Shankar gave her a chance . He got in touch before and after surgery and we have been so delighted with the care from his whole team , the nurses and the COPE team . My mother intends to do you and your team proud!
