    Excellent manner and doesn't talk down to patients but explores all issues around the condition you are seeing him about and what your aims are. Fully involved my key support staff such as my osteopath and physio and kept the GP informed regularly. He welcomed reports from them as post-surgery treatment progressed and considered them as part of the team getting me back to active life and took their suggestions on board. His PA Candice is incredibly efficient and very helpful.

    I have had two knee surgeries performed by Mr Jairaj now. My whole experience under Mr Jairaj's care, from the consultation to the surgeries themselves, was friendly and professional. Having been sent home the same day from both surgeries with sufficient medication to handle pain I actually ended up suffering little to no pain at all. During a recent long and very challenging mountaineering route in the Scottish Highlands I was mentally thanking Mr Jairaj for giving back to me the ability to do what I love once more.

    I have nothing but praise for Paul Jairaj who performed my double hip replacement in 2020. He is a highly professional and personable consultant who puts his patients at ease and takes the time to explain options, procedures and outcomes. Thanks to Paul I found the whole process stress-free and my recovery has been excellent. I would not hesitate in recommending him.

    I recently had a knee arthroscopy performed by Dr Paul Jairaj at the London Bridge Hospital. The whole procedure was concluded in half a day. The un obtrusive surgery totally removed the pain i was previously feeling, and left me with minimal scare tissue plus a very quick recovery time. I found Paul very attentive and professional in all aspects of my dealings with him. He went through the detail illustrating why I needed surgery ,then explained the procedure and the work he was going to perform on my knee. He was very reassuring and all he said that he would achieve he achieved. Having never experienced key hole surgery before Dr Jairaj proved to be an excellent exponent of its practice.

    Mr Jairaj was excellent to deal with. From the first meeting to the final check in, he was clear, confident about the results I would achieve, professional and engaged in my overall treatment plan. His surgical skills have enabled me to regain fully mobility and he worked well with my physiotherapist and personal trainer which made all the difference in my opinion. Can't recommend him highly enough.

    I met Paul when we were both lecturing at an Osteopathic conference. I was seriously impressed by his approach to lower limb orthopaedic surgery and his holistic view of the patient, in my experience unusual with many surgeons. I have referred to him for opinions on some of my complex patients for both confirmation of diagnosis and input into their management and of course surgery when appropriate. He is conservative in his approach but pragmatic and has become a highly valuable part of my referral network. I cannot recommend him more highly to patients and their clinicians who need expert input into hip and knee problems.

    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.
