    I trust Mr Pillai implicitly as he is always totally honest, he explains everything thoroughly in a way that is easy to understand and offers advice accordingly. I would find it difficult to trust anyone else to care for my complicated foot problems as Mr Pillai does.

    From the first meeting with Mr Pillai I was impressed with how thorough he was and how he listened and followed through on each point that I made. He recommended that I went back again 6 months later to review my issue and do a contrast scan which actually turned out to be a life-saver as what was then identified was a far more serious condition in another part of my body. Even at that point, he took time to explain the situation and referred me to another excellent team of consultants who have continued to work with me. I could not recommend him and his team highly enough. The care they have shown - and continue to show even though he is not currently treating me - has been exemplary and I could not recommend him highly enough.

    Stress Fractures
    I visited Mr Pillai after pain in my foot from running during training. I cannot recommend Mr Pillai and his team enough, I managed to get an appointment with Mr Pillai on the Friday, referral for an MRI on the Saturday and follow up appointment for the results on the Monday. Neeta his secretary was absolutely brilliant and arranged the scan and follow up appointment and I was able to get the diagnosis (stress fracture), referral for a bone density scan and I was able to start the recovery period without any delays. This was really appreciated as I had an team GB event I was training for so the speed in diagnosis and understanding what I need to do to recover really helped. Thanks to the clear explanation and thorough diagnosis I now know my bone density was lower than normal and we are addressing this and Mr Pillai has provided clear guidance on next steps to allow my return to training (after a second MRI to confirm healing). Mr Pillai has an excellent team he works with that really provide first class care, this also includes the team performing and assessing the MRI scans (at South Manchester Diagnostics) who were exceptional and very reassuring and knowledgeable. Thank you very much for everything you and your team have done.

    Mr Pillai was great at explaining what would happen during the procedure and after. He was very clear in detailing what the root cause was and how the treatment offered would help. Very pleased with the care provided.

    Ankle replacement
    I was reticent about an ankle replacement and ligament reconstruction but Mr Pillai was very open and honest about the pros and cons of all my choices . I eventually decided to have an ankle replacement . I was amazed at how post operatively my pain was controlled and I was fine after discharge with paracetamol and brufen for a very short time . My wounds have healed amazingly over the 3 months since my op. I am now fully weight bearing and can’t wait to be on the golf course in the spring time ! I am pain free with no pain killers and my ankle looks amazing ! Thank you most sincerely Mr Pillai , Neeta , and all hospital staff .

    A wonderful person, and surgeon. Explains everything in detail, ensures you're comfortable with it before anything happens, and doesn't proceed until you are happy. I'm very happy with my progress so far and feel very optimistic for a positive outcome

    Mr Pillai and his secretary, Neeta, have gone above and beyond the call of duty in dealing with my son who has suffered a severe sports related ankle injury. They have been very responsive and accommodating in both seeking out the most appropriate treatment and in offering alternative routes to achieve the best possible clinical outcome. Highly recommended!

    I contacted Mr Pillai with a problematic foot bone fracture following inadequate NHS treatment. He and his secretary have been nothing short of wonderful in their care and concern, always available with advice and providing detailed investigations and reassurance. Mr Pillai exceeded my expectations in personally applying and removing a plaster cast! He is a busy doctor but still manages to find the time to combine his expert medical knowledge with personal empathy. Although my problem is not yet fully resolved I am confident that with his help and experience I will go on to make a good recovery. Thankyou!
