After years of increasingly debilitating and depressing arthritis, in October 2012 at Guy’s Hospital I had an ‘Oxford’ partial replacement of my right knee, carried out by Mr Zameer Shah. The result was so good, and Mr Shah’s team so helpful and efficient, that I immediately had the same operation done on my left knee. I made a full and quick recovery and became fully mobile - and cheerful - again Seven years have now passed and I am happy to report that both knees are as good as they were immediately after the operation. I still have an excellent range of movement in both knees which, the occasional small twinge of residual arthritis apart in cold weather, give me no trouble and in good condition. I cannot recommend Mr Shah’s friendly approach and professional skills enough to anyone who is thinking of having a similar operation. Brian Vale
A total knee replacement by Zameer Shah, on February 4th, at The London Bridge Hospital, has resulted in me leading a normal, active life again after years of knee problems - six procedures in total since the late 1970s. I met Zameer after treatments and therapies for very painful bursitis in my hip had little or no effect. After MRI and X-Ray scans, and careful diagnosis, I reluctantly accepted that yet another op was necessary, but I'm now so glad I did: when Zameer went into my knee, it was obviously severely damaged. I was Chairman of two NHS Hospital Trusts and have been lucky to always receive first- class medical attention over the years. However, none has been better than the care and advice I have had from Zameer - and, incidentally, from all the staff at London Bridge Hospital run by HCA. With my medical experience I can honestly say that I have never been as impressed as by Zameer, whose skill and thoughtful care has led to a rapid recovery. Zameer should be considered to be one of the great orthopaedic surgeons of our time. Thank you. Conrad Blakey OBE
Mr Shah is an excellent surgeon. He operated on my knee to deal with a meniscus tear caused by running (and probably ageing ...). As a testimony to his expertise, I was able to walk out of the BMI Blackheath Hospital shortly after the operation and recovered quickly. He was very helpful in the consultations before and after the treatment in answering questions, explaining the various options available to me, etc. Having dealt with various members of he medical profession over the years, I would say that Mr Shah is certainly one of the best.
Mr Shah operated on my left knee on the 14th March 2018. He performed TKR with - from what I can deduce - consummate skill and deserves the accolades he has received. His out patient physio discharged me after nine and a half months. No pain, no lack of sleep, no limp. My knee cartilage was shattered in 1958 and things don't get better with age. Couldn't recommend Zameer Shah more to give patients quality of life after total knee replacement surgery.
