    His approach and advice was excellent. Having damaged my knee I was referrd to Mr Jig Patel. In the space of one day he examined me, arranged an MRI scan, reviewed the result with me and arranged a suitable injection. The treatment worked almost immediately. During the follow up visit he looked again at my knee , determined it was still swollen but confirmed that I now had proper movement. We agreed that no further action was needed -- apart from continuing with strengthening exercies which he recommended. An impressive, helpful and informative service.

    Dr Patel is very knowledgable and treats his patients with great care. I cannot thank him enough for the swift appointment and operation following my ACL injury and fantastic follow up care. One year after my ACL repair, I am happy to say that I am back to normal life and ready to go skiing again! Highly recommended!

    It’s always disconcerting and frightening to find out that you need major surgery . You are , literally , putting your well being and your life in someone else’s hands . From the moment I met Jig Patel I felt safe . From our first meeting , to my final consultation he was kind, understanding, clear and concise . He made me feel safe , AND , he gave me the impetus and the confidence to get back on my feet . I would have no hesitation in recommending him to other people - he’s given me my ‘life’ back , and I’ll never be able to thank him enough .

    Tendon repair
    After a difficult experience within the NHS (my operation was cancelled 4 days in a row following a trauma injury - complete rupture of patella tendon), Mr Patel was able to see me the next day after I initially made contact. He was waiting for me at the Princess Grace following my transfer from Cambridge, and his manner immediately put me at ease and filled me with confidence. It was such a huge relief and change after the stress and discomfort of the the previous five days. The surgery went very well, and he was available to answer any questions I had during my recovery. At all times he was warm, friendly and filled me with confidence. The physio he recommended was also first rate. Nineteen weeks on from the injury and I am very happy with the results - I am close to resuming jogging and have already been swimming and weight training for some time. Each day I am noticing progress and feel that I will get back to 100%.

    I have known Mr Jig Patel since 1992. He is and always has been thoroughly professional in his approach to being a great doctor and subsequently one of the best hip and knee surgeons I know. He is pragmatic in his approach, and has great ability with non surgical and surgical treatment options. He explains in simple and easy to understand ways, and exudes a positive, confident and calm bedside manner. I would not hesitate to take one of my family members to him for treatment.
