Fantastic care. Explained treatment and procedure from start and felt absolutely confident. My first op outside private sector so was concerned but needn’t have been. Treatment was second to none and a credit to NHS
MR Zameer Shah is an excellent surgeon and an exceptional human being I have had both knees replaced in the last almost three years and each time His care /skills / and kindness before /during and after each procedure have been exemplary I had been refused by three Scottish surgeons because I was overweight ( due to steroid treatment and the pain from my knees making me immobile He instils confidence and he leaves little or no scars I would heartily recommend him and have done so to friends looking for a knee surgeon
I found Mr Shah to be a warm and friendly professional who took time to explain my condition and the procedure required to alleviate it. He visited me prior to the operation in the anaesthetists room to ensure all was well, and I found that reassuring - rather than having no contact with him and not really knowing who did the procedure. The anaesthetist was excellent in every respect, putting me at ease and distracting me with conversation until I passed out! After the operation I was looked after by the nursing staff and visited by a member of Mr Shahs team and by Mr Shah himself the following day. He explained how the operation had progressed and the poor condition he found my hip to be in. He was happy I was back on my feet and moving about the ward. All in all, my contact with Mr Shah and his team, and the nursing staff was a positive experience and I could not have been in better hands.
I can't thank Mr Shah enough, my care at Chelsfield Hospital and following excellent Physiotherapy. I have my life back. I am 65 years old and average build and was surprised to be suffering from an arthritic hip, which increasingly affected all areas of my active life. I was suffering day and night pain and my range of hip movement and tolerance of walking and general activity were frustratingly slow and reduced. I was pleased to be able to have a good discussion with Mr Shah about the right time to have surgery, in view of my age and he answered all of my questions. and reassured me of the most suitable prosthesis that he would use and allowed me to go away and make contact anytime when I had made my decision. In fact I waited another 6 months, in which time I had noticed a deterioration which had become very wearing. I was really pleased to see Mr Shah immediately before the operation and immediately after the surgery in theatre which was very calming and reassuring for me at a time of anxiety and nerves. His manner is very calm, caring and cheerful. I was amazed to go home after 2 nights and able to easily walk and climb stairs straight away. The nagging previous pain had gone. My improvement over the following weeks was better than I expected and speedily I have been able to resume a normal and active life. At my follow up appointment, Mr Shah was helpful and positive about the specific activities relevant to me. Ten weeks later and I am able to stand tall, walk distances, do the gardening and join in the fun of looking after my grandchildren. I am delighted to be free of taking round the clock pain relief and intend to make sure that I make the most of my new lease of life. I couldn't have wished to have been in greater hands. Many thanks from Jane Richardson
I have had two hip replacements at Guys Hospital both were performed by Mr Zameer Shah. The quality of pre operation assessment and post operation Support was excellent. The outcome from the new hips has greatly improved my level of mobility.
