Mr Shankar, was very good at explaining what was in store for my hip replacement. He listened very well and answered all question I needed answered. When had my op done Mr Shankar even zoomed called me to check how I was and how it all went. The team at king George’s hospital were amazing and with all the new precautions in place I felt very safe due to COVID. Overall I’m very happy with Mr Shankar abs his team at queens hospital and king George’s.

I have received excellent care from Mr Shivakumar Shankar and his team at Queen’s hospital, Romford, during the past 18 months. Mr Shankar repaired my broken hip with cannulated screws and I am pleased to say the bone is now fully healed and I am back to my previous level of activity. Mr Shankar has a pleasant, caring manner; he showed interest in me as a patient and explained things in a clear and professional way. I am extremely grateful for his knowledge and surgical expertise and the great job he has done on my hip. I am especially grateful that Mr Shankar works for our wonderful NHS, so enabling other people like myself to benefit from his skills. Thank you Shivakumar Shankar.

At my first appointment with Mr Shankar in November 20 I was extremely confident in the diagnosis and treatment he suggested. He was calm and reassuring about both my treatment, the outcome and the covid precautions that would be in place. My pre-op appointments were efficient, and the staff were always friendly and reassuring. On the day of the operation everything was done with the utmost efficiency and I felt very safe in the hospital. Everything was spotlessly clean. Mr Shankar spoke to me before and after the op and was very reassuring. I couldn't fault anything. I went home that night and to bed and when I got up in the night I realised that I was already able to walk better which was quite an amazing feeling My recovery has been good and the follow up physio was excellent. I have said to many people that Mr Shankar certainly 'knows his onions'. Excuse the old fashioned expression. When I saw Mr Shankar for the post op appointment I was amazed to be shown the photos of the inside of my knee and was able to follow what had been done to repair the damage. It was a very good experience and I consider myself to be extremely lucky especially during these difficult times. Thank you to all concerned.
