'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.
I had a total hip replacement and from the start of the first meeting I had total confidence in Mr. Vedi. The hospital stay and the spinal block procedure were fantastic and after the surgery I was up the following day and walking pain free with one crutch within a week. I can't recommend him and his team highly enough.~By - Mr AW
