"After years of increasing pain and decreasing mobility from the arthritis in my hip, I found it difficult to imagine that it could ever be better. Mr. Vedi explained to me that a hip replacement would make a significant difference and was very reassuring about the procedure and the long-term prognosis. The operation itself was quick and effective, and my recovery very speedy. I was able to walk only a few hours after the operation and the pain had disappeared. Very soon after returning home I was walking normally again, and managing longer and longer distances. Mr. Vedi was kind and informative throughout the whole process and made me feel that there was nothing to worry about. I now find it hard to remember what my hip felt like before the operation, and am looking forward to a much more active future."~By - Mrs RS
'It's now more than six month's since my hip operation. I was able to leave hospital after four days using one crutch and go abroad on holiday after seven weeks without a stick, completely pain free and easily walking for more than a mile. I am a very satisfied patient.'~By - MRS RM
"I would like to place on record my thanks to Mr. Vedi for giving me my life back."
I had been unable to work/move/walk properly for about 3 years:
One hip operation by Mr. Vedi and 3 months of a strict rehabilitation programme later, I have the body and energy of an 18year old. ( I am actually 63).
Thank you from a Very Satisfied Patient.~By - D P
'I am a Russian female aged 72. In May 2010 I started to feel an intense pain in my hip. Since then the pain increased and I found it more and more difficult to walk regardless of hundreds of injections and tablets of pain killers and anti-inflammatory drugs that I have taken. I had a diagnose of the hip joint degradation in the 3rd stage. The conservative treatment would not help and the hip joint was recommended. I was greatly disturbed by the prospect of the operation. Eventually I got accustomed to the necessity of the surgery but I felt great fear of it. In Russia, such operations are done since only a few years ago and the success statistics is not encouraging. Happily I had an opportunity to have a hip replacement done in the UK. After consultations with a few surgeons and some internet research I chose Mr. Vikas Vedi to replace my hip. I do not regret my choice. On the 16th of August 2011 this talented gentleman so brilliantly performed the hip replacement surgery in just 45 minutes that I now feel the joy of the second lease of life. I was lucky to be operated by a Master of his profession. Dr Fernandes the anaesthesiologist did his part excellently as well. I am endlessly grateful to the outstanding specialist who helped me in my very difficult condition.~By - F Y -
I just wish to thank Mr. Vedi for the whole of his care during my hip replacement. At my consultation he said my life would return to normal in due course and indeed it has. Everything worked exactly as he advised and i would have no hesitation in recommending anyone to his care. I had 'put off' seeking advice through fear for two years.
Best Wishes.~By - Dr P J T -Dentist Retired.
