Mr Shankar carried out my hip replacement in November 2021. I cant thank Mr Shankar enough for his surgical skills and care which have given me a new lease of life without pain. I recently had a twelve-month follow up and Im so pleased that my implant is working perfectly. I remember my operation well and Mr Shankar and his team explained the whole procedure and all the potential hazards and risk assessments. The aftercare with the COPE team was also excellent and I was walking normally within a few days of the operation. To the whole team....."Thank you so much".

Mr. Shivakumar Shanker performed TKR for both knees. Both have been with satisfactory results. The first knee was done using tractional method. The second was Robotic surgery. Mr Shivakumar has has pleasant personalty. Easy to talk to, had time to answer questions. When I saw Vinny on20th October 2022, he came personally came to talk me and was satisfied with the progress I was making. I would definitely recommand him if you wish to get hip or knee replacement. Overall the staff were very caring at KG hospital.

I found Dr Shankar to be very thorough and helpful, he kept me informed on the progress of my treatment, before and after my surgery. He has been able to return me to mobility, pain free for the first time in years.

My TKR surgery was a complete success thanks to my surgeon Mr Shankar. He was very caring and put me at ease, he also answered any questions I had. I would certainly recommend him and I hope that when the time comes for my other knee replacement he will perform my surgery.
