“For the past few years I had suffered with pains in my hips and legs. Visits to the doctors were not particularly helpful. Despite describing my symptoms I was told that it was typical for my age and was prescribed painkillers. It got so bad that I could barely walk and had to sleep in the chair because it was too painful to lie in bed. I saw a physio who recognised my symptoms as pressure in my spine. I found a surgeon who specialises in backs and got a consultation. A scan showed the problem and a date for surgery was made. I went to the hospital. I was operated on in the morning. When I woke I knew the problem was solved. Within days I was as good as I had been for years. “

I can't recommend this treatment and Mr Bhagawatis team. I had 2 injections for severe pain in my neck, shoulder and right arm. Each injection went into my C7 then C8 nerves. After the first one the pain was massively reduced and after the second completely gone. Not instantly, but after a few days each time. I must say I would not hesitate to have this treatment again or recommend to any one else.

I was referred to Mr Bhagawati after suffering pain in the coccyx following the birth of my daughter and sustaining a fall shortly after. I have had several rounds of treatment with Mr Bhagawati (manuipulation of the coccyx and injection) to treat what is now diagnosed coccydynia. I am beyond impressed with both Mr Bhagawati and the treatment itself. If you're suffering in this regard, please seek out his professional opinion.

Patient seen for:
I had 2 cervical nerve blockers after experiencing severe pain in my shoulder and right arm to the extent that I couldn't lie down or turn my head to the right. Mr Bhagawati explained my options and I opted for the injections. There wasn't much improvement after the first but a few weeks later I had the second and felt immediately better. I do still get an intermittent ache at the back of my neck occasionally with minor pins and needles in my fingers but I am delighted with the results.

Quick and concise dianogisis and good explanation of problem and treatment options. Injections took 5 weeks to work after which pain reduced significantly. Some numbness remained for some time but eased after pain reduced.

At first I was very sceptical about having back surgery as know this can be very serious, after Mr Bhagawati explain how simple the procedure was I was very happy to proceed. Once the operation had been completed I assumed I would be in bed for along time after, however with in a matter of days I was back on my feet and discharged from hospital, only 6 weeks post operation and I'm feeling great!

The issues affecting my back have been absent since the injection and in fact my back feels as good as new. Having the injection was concerning to start with but Mr Bhagawati explained the process very well and following the procedure there was no pain in the injection site at all. All in all a very good outcome with minimal stress and so far so good.
