    I went to see Mr Sethi following a knee injury I sustained while skiing. From the first day I met Mr Sethi he reassured me and I knew I was in good hands. Mr Sethi's team has been amazing and made sure everything was in place for surgery and my recovery. I am so grateful for the care and treatment that Mr Sethi has provided, he is brilliant. Even my physiotherapist has said that they have not seen anyone recover so quickly from an ACL reconstruction before, all thanks to Mr Sethi's surgery. Thank you, I would not hesitate to recommend Mr Sethi to anyone who has a knee problem.

    Mr Sethi carried out a Partial Knee Replacement. I’m really happy with the care I received before my operation and after my operation. Mr Sethi explained everything to expect after my operation. So I fully understood everything. On the morning of my operation i met Mr Sethi before he began and also afterwards. I was allowed home the following afternoon and continued my rehabilitation at home. I can honestly say that i am really happy with my knee, the scarring is really good and also my mobility. You must make sure you do your exercises twice a day to get the knee to adjust. It’s been 7 weeks since my operation and I saw Mr Sethi in hospital for my review and he was happy with my knee. I cannot thank Mr Sethi enough. I still have pain in my knee but that’s to be expected as it is still early. You will gradually get less pain as the weeks/months go by. I would recommend anyone who is thinking about their operation and worried to be reassured that you will be very happy with the outcome of your operation. I am very thankful for having a fantastic surgeon who reassured me about the procedure and also for listening to me and having shown me a lot of care and reassurance. Thank you.

    Having had recent bad experiences of not being listened to at a consultation and left with the feeling that my complaint was prematurley dismissed, it was so refreshing to talk to Mr. Sethi. His warm, attentive manner is matched by his swift action and reassuring advice. A very nice man that I would highly recommend.

    I feel very fortunate to have had my Partial Knee Replacement Operation performed by Mr. Sethi. What I particularly liked, was when I first saw my Scar, I realised Mr.Sethi uses steri - strips and the Scar is small, neat and fading fast . Mr Sethi has a quiet , calmness about him and is very clear when explaining anything and is a good listener. A true gentleman. I can’t think of anything he could do to give even greater care.

    I had snapped three ligaments in my knee during a skiing accident. I received prompt and quick action from Mr Sethi and his team. Mr Sethi’s keyhole knee operation was very timely and successful. Mr Sethi's rehab treatment and support from Physio department was excellent. Mr Sethi was very approachable, and clear on the process and outcome. I’m a very active and sporting person and can now undertake all my previous activities to the same level. I have a little further to go but very pleased with the outcome. Sincere thanks to Mr Sethi.

    ACL (Anterior Cruciate Ligament) Injury Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) Reconstruction
    I feel incredibly fortunate to have been referred to Mr. Sethi for my ACL reconstruction. I tore my ACL whilst skiing and know of other skiers who also tore theirs in the same season. While I'm sure their surgeons were incredibly competent, I feel that in comparison my experience was so much more comprehensive and positive. Prior to booking the surgery, I sat on the fence about whether or not I wanted the reconstruction in the first place. Being addicted to google /webmd searches and horror self diagnosis, I found lots of horror stories about how it can go wrong. Or where surgeons often misplace the graft because they only do X number of ACL reconstructions per year. But in the end I felt very reassured by the fact that Mr. Sethi works exclusively on the knee. I asked him about his other clients, about shoulder injuries during ski season etc, and he said no just knees and only knees - about 4 to 5 ACL reconstructions per week on top of other knee surgeries. My case was open and shut for Mr Sethi, and 15 months down the line, my ACL injury turned out to be quite the non event. Been back to normal for a while now, thanks to Mr. Sethi's great care.

    I had outstanding care and treatment during the time of my treatment from yourself. I would highly recommend you to anyone requiring knee treatment. My knees took quite some time to get back to normal after physiotherapy, but are both working fine now. Long may it continue ! It was a real pleasure being treated by you. Thank you again for your compassion and professionalism throughout. And your sense of humour was excellent which is very important to me.

    Mr Sethi is a superb surgeon who I trust with my patients that I need to refer on. He is collaborative in his approach to orthopaedic knee problems. I will refer to him when I expect patients need surgery but also at times for very valuable second opinions. I have enjoyed working with Mr Sethi for the mutual benefit of our patients and will continue to do so. Dr Mike Burdon Consultant Sports Physician, Pure Sports Medicine.

    It’s been a 6 months since my operation and I wanted to shout out a big thank you to Mr Sethi. I finished my first run today and the knee is doing very well, no pain at all, it feels like there has never been an accident :) I wish Mr Sethi's Family all the best, especially in times like these.

    Mr Sethi is an excellent clinician. I have seen him communicate effectively with patients, giving them all the information needed for patients to make decisions about what will be best for them. He is knowledgeable, approachable and accessible as a colleague. I trust him completely and he is the knee surgeon I would recommend to my patients, family, friends and colleagues if they needed a surgical opinion.

    Mr Sethi is a truly outstanding doctor, and I am extremely grateful for all the support and great care I have received from him. From the very early consultations, he helped me choose the best approach for my condition, by presenting all the facts and trade-offs in an honest yet reassuring manner. Even when I opted to go for a ACL reconstruction + meniscal repair surgery, which was the first major operation in my life, I felt comfortable that I had reached the right decision and that I was in safe hands. My recovery and progress so far (6 months post surgery) has exceeded my expectations. Mr Sethi even managed to "rescue" my meniscus by repairing it and thus avoiding removing it completely. Pain has been minimal, even in the first days after the surgery, and my knee feels strong and stable (no Theresa May pun intended). I'm already back to cycling and running with no problems at all, and I soon hope to make a return to other sports. If you are ever in the unfortunate position to sustain a knee injury, I cannot recommend Mr Sethi enough!
