Professional from the start, friendly and informative. Showed a good level of understanding with his subject matter, and could still have a quiet joke.

I had a left total hip replacement in April ‘21 by Mr Shankar at Spire Hartswood Hospital. I cannot fault the care I was given. Mr Shankar explained the procedure and put me totally at ease. I had spinal anaesthetic & sedation. I had no problem after the operation with no pain and was able to walk with crutches the next day. Apart from slight soreness from the wound the hip gave me no discomfort. Mr Shankar came to see me the following day and gave me advice as to what exercises to do and what not to do. I have just been to see him today and he has now discharged me saying it has been a total success and was pleased to see me walking so well without sticks. If I needed to have the other hip replaced I would not hesitate to go back to Mr Shankar for my surgery as I’ve been completely happy with my treatment.

I had total knee replacement by Mr Shankar at the Brentwood Spire on 9th July and cannot praise him, and the surgical and nursing teams at the Spire enough for their skills, courtesy and kindness.

A very caring consultant, made sure he explained everything fully and both he and Springfield hospital were very understanding and efficient and comfortable during my stay for a total knee replacement. Ten weeks post operation and I am able to return to playing golf and going walking with friends. Driving my car and going up and downstairs is no problem. Exercise is key, I think for recovery and I will continue exercising and walking for the next few months at least.

Dr Shankar was recommended to me by my GP following several years of physio under the NHS for the arthritus in my right hip. I had a total hip replacement (self financed) undertaken by Dr Shankar at Spires Hartswood Hospital and can confirm that in all my dealings with both the hospital and Dr Shankar my treatment has been first class. All details concerning the operation were fully explained to me by Dr Shankar including any possible set backs that could occur, but thankfully did not. My operation was undertaken on 18 May 2021 as a computer navigated Metha total hip replacement and I have not looked back since then. Since the operation and my returning home to recuperate I have not had any pain or infection, the physio sessions at Hartswood were extremely helpful and I am now back to my normal routine of swimming each morning and going to the gym 5 days a week. I would thoroughly recommend Dr Shankar and all his team.
