“I had been struggling with a painful arthritic knee for many years. I saw a few specialists who said that I would need a knee replacement, but I was too young and active to have one now (I am 55 years old). After seeing Mr Sethi, he gave me far more options and suggested an osteotomy, this gave me the chance of keeping my own natural knee and delay the need for a knee replacement. It is now 6 months since my operation and I am extremely satisfied with the result. I can hike and walk long distances pain free. The first couple of months were painful, but Mr Sethi had warned me and prepared me for this. I am very grateful to Mr Sethi for what he has done for me - he has given me my life back. Thank you.“

    Mr Sethi has been fantastic. I had major issues due to a torn cartilage in my knee, I saw another doctor who said the only option was an operation. Seeing Mr Sethi was a breath of fresh air, he was calm and instilled confidence. He explained clearly what the problem was and laid out all the options very clearly. After looking at my scans, he thought that I could be treated without an operation (something I was very happy to hear). I am glad to say that the treatment worked and now 6 months after first seeing Mr Sethi I am pain free and back to playing golf. If I have any problems with my knees in the future, I will be back to see Mr Sethi - thank you.

    Having torn my meniscus twice in as many years, and previously not having felt comfortable enough to proceed with surgery, I was extremely grateful to have met Mr. Sethi. At my first appointment, he explained my treatment options – both surgical and conservative – and made me feel empowered and confident in my decision-making process. I am now three-months post-meniscal repair and am so glad I proceeded. Mr. Sethi's level of care throughout has been second to none and I would encourage anyone, especially those having doubts about their treatment plan, to engage his services.

    Mr Sethi undertook my complete knee replacement in early April 2021. From the intial consultations, through the surgery and in follow up sessions Mr Sethi has provided clear information, managed my expectations on what surgery and recovery would be like, was very patient focussed as he addressed all my concerns and issues, and he provided calm and assured advice. I felt entirely confident and comfortable with this significant surgical process because of his manner. Mr Sethi’s surgical skill has resulted in giving me a new knee where I have radically reduced pain and increased mobility after only six weeks, it’s made such a difference.

    My experience with Mr Sethi was excellent. He is clearly extremely knowledgable in his field, explained everything in simple and easy to understand terms, and I felt very comfortable in his care. I had absolutely no worries ahead of the operation and totally trusted him to make the best decision for my knee depending on its condition on the day. I would recommend Mr Sethi to anyone seeking an orthopaedic surgeon.

    Mr Sethi has been a fantastic consultant and I'm progressing well six months after an operation to repair my ACL and meniscus. The ACL tear was a re-injury so I was undecided over whether I wanted to undergo surgery again, given the significant time (around a year) needed for rehabilitation. However, Mr Sethi was excellent at explaining my options - which were fairly confusing, due to the two injuries and the re-injury - and I felt that I had plenty of information and time to make a decision. I ended up opting for surgery, as well as an extra procedure (lateral tenodesis) to reduce the risk of ACL re-injury. My operation - planned for April - was postponed due to COVID-19 but Mr Sethi communicated this as soon as possible and I was able to re-book for September. Overall, I'm extremely pleased with the level of care I was shown throughout.
