I had it done by Mr. Vedi and haven't looked back since. All of the pain has gone and I'm back to running as if there had never been a problem....when just a couple of months ago it hurt to even walk.
Like the other posts, I wanted to avoid surgery and hence felt a bit strange going to hospital, but that was to get the injection guided in by ultrasound to make sure it went in the best place (apparently).

I was very nervous about having Hip replacement surgery but I really need not have worried. From the time of our first meeting Mr. Vedi explained everything clearly and carefully and he always had plenty of time for my queries. I felt very reassured. He did a wonderful job with my new hip and I was home in 3 days and walking unaided in 2 weeks. It is a year now since my operation and I have had no problems at all. I cannot thank Mr. Vedi enough for what he did for me and I would also like to thank the staff at Bishops Wood who were so helpful and caring.~By - CM
Dear Miss Sheppard
On behalf of my Wife and myself, i would like to express our sincere thanks to you for all your assistance relating to my Wife's operation - much appreciated.
May we also take this opportunity to thank Mr. Vedi for taking on her case and for all his T.L.C. We were so pelased she was under his care. It did help her enourmously due to what happened prior to his care.
Once again, thank you both.

Interestingly, these apparent hip pains were successfully diagnosed by Vikas Vedi in 2013 by means of an isotope scan as acute spinal problems and treated by Shaun Ridgeway by nerve root injections into L3 & L4 right in May 2013 with excellent results up to now.
This might be a useful snippet of information, as I had been struggling on the tennis court with my right hip for 13 years but now I am cured. So here is to you, Vik & Shaun, some good news and very best wishes for continues success & happiness in 2015 and beyond !~By - Mr HR Jan 2015
Total hip replacement carried out by Mr. Vedi - can honestly say the results have changed my life completely
I had a total hip replacement carried out by Mr. Vedi at Mount Vernon Hospital in December 2014, and can honestly say the results have changed my life completely. Before the operation I was in almost constant pain, waking several times each night, unable to walk more than 100 yards without severe pain, and having to really take my time before I bent down to pick something up from the floor. Now, after only two months I am able to enjoy walking the dog, generally sleep through the night without waking, and am able to swim 12 lengths at my local pool without pain. Marvellous!
I would also like to praise the care and kindness I received from everyone during my stay. Without fail everybody I came in contact with, from the surgical team to the porter who wheeled my bed, and of course the nurses and physiotherapists, treated me with such consideration it is hard to know how they could have been better. Thank you Mr. Vedi!~By - Mrs CI Dec 2014
