    Mr Jairaj was excellent. He took the time before the operation to make sure I fully understood what would be done, and followed up with me several times after the operation to make sure I was recovering well and answered any questions I had. I felt he took the time to make sure I was completely comfortable with everything to do with my treatment. I came out of hospital in far less pain than I had expected.

    Paul is a fantastic hip and knee surgeon and we work very closely at London Bridge Hospital. We have a similar network of trusted healthcare professions, and this helps our patients access a seamless service. Paul is extremely thorough and works hard to establish an accurate diagnosis and only reverts to surgery when absolutely necessary. I would whole-heartedly recommend him to my friends and family.
