“Mr Imbuldeniya, performed an excellent hip replacement operation for me, a highly satisfactory outcome. He clearly explained the procedure and the options open to me. I cannot believe how quickly I was walking and with very little pain. I would thoroughly recommend him. First class.“

    Knee Arthroscopy
    Mr Imbuldeniya has performed two knee operations on me (first the left knee and then the right knee) during the last two years. Both operations were arthroscopy with partial medial meniscectomy and chondroplasty of medial femoral condyle. The operations were successful and I was mobile within a week after the operations. Mr Imbuldeniya and his team are very professional and made the entire process extremely easy with minimum stress. I'm very satisfied with the professionalism, experience and results, and therefor highly recommends Mr Imbuldeniya.

    Mr.Imbuldeniya is not only immensely knowledgeable but also a talented communicator, friendly, open, and most important of all, a problem solver. He quickly assessed my acute condition and in spite of the Coronavirus crisis managed to schedule prompt ,effective surgery. He also has a great sense of humour.

    Hip Replacement
    I saw Mr Imbuldeniya in his NHS after seeing a consultant with a dreadfully condensing, uninterested attitude. Mr Imbuldeniya was patient, honest and humorous. He seemed to understand that my particular concern was a big deal to me even if he’d seen hundreds of similar cases. When explaining something if I didn’t get it he found another way to express it to ensure I did get it. I felt I would be in safe hands hands that saw me as an individual rather than a collection of damaged bones on an x-ray. I’m well recovering from a hip replacement and I wholeheartedly recommend him as a surgeon and greatly admire his attitude to his work. We need more like him.

    Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) Reconstruction
    Had my ACL reconstructed last year by Mr Imbuldeniya. First class job and overall experience. Op only took around 45 minutes. Great level of care and assistance given in Pre Op & Post Op by his team and then subsequent follow up consultations.

    Mr Imbuldeniya listened to me patiently, and explained that he could arrange scans to investigate the problem. He than explained the results to me and advised me on referrals to a rheumatologist and physio I shall certainly return to Mr Imbuldeniya if the condition continues to worsen.

    Excellent isn't enough to give to Mr Imbuldeniya and his team who guided me through my total hip replacement before and after care. Just like you are doing now I read the reviews, they are so important for both consultant and patient/client this being the reason for me writing one. As soon as you meet him he puts you at your ease, he has a warm friendly approach explains all options, answers all your questions. He is a true professional, genuinely wanting to help. His wonderful caring PA Annie, who must be exceptionally busy made time to listen and explain any queries I had. Mr Andrew Castello-Cortes the anesthetist explained pros and cons (as I wanted to stay awake) of having a spinal block injection. Another very caring person looking after me throughout the operation. I still cannot believe I was chatting just as you would over coffee during Op. Operation over in morning me walking a few steps same afternoon. In my third week on one crutch just incase of tripping, been on buses, trains, and of course doing my exercises, a must! Can't thank you all enough and other theatre staff for relieving me of the pain I was in. Would highly recommend you to all.

    I cannot thank Mr Imbuldeniya enough! I was so worried about have my ACL and Mensicus surgery but he put me at ease from my very first appointment. The surgery went amazingly and his assistant Annie even text me after the op to see how things were going. I am now 8 months post op and feel stronger than I did prior to my injury. Thank you to Mr Imbuldeniya and also to Annie.

    I started to see Mr Imbuldeniya in April 2018 who very quickly organised an MRI Scan to reveal I had some pretty serious damage to my right knee. We tried going down the route of not initially having surgery but after a couple of other incidents we decided that surgery would be the best course of action. I'm now post op by almost two months and I'm very happy with my recovery. I can't recommend Mr Imbuldeniya (and his team) highly enough for their professionalism and attention to detail.

    Mr. Imbuldeniya is extremely professional and pleasant. He’s very easy to talk to, and took time to explain all my options to me, being very honest about all possible outcomes. I have no hesitation in recommending him wholeheartedly if you are considering knee or hip surgery. His PA Annie also deserves a special mention - she is warm and friendly, and extremely good at her job. All arrangements were made effectively and I am happy with all aspects of my treatment.
