“Having consulted Mr Sood over knee pain. I was reassured over the different scenarios it could be, and only the right course of action would be undertaken. I found him clear and concise in his explanations. And I felt completely at ease when it came to him having to do an arthroscopy. At my follow up appointment Mr Sood explained thoroughly, along with diagrams, what exactly he had done during my procedure. Thank you to him. There is no doubt I would recommend Mr Sood to other future patients. “

He has been in Specialist Consultant Practice since 2004 and has trained internationally including in Centres of Excellence in North America. He has been recognised as a Top Doctor by his peers and awarded 3 Clinical Excellence awards by the NHS.

    Mr Sood is recognised as a clear communicator and believes in offering his patients jargon-free explanations about their conditions and all possible treatment options, including those not involving surgery. Whilst he believes passionately in reconstructing and preserving joints and in biological treatments, he is also an expert hip and knee replacement surgeon. His referral practice deals with the most complex and challenging of cases including replacements that have failed and need to be re-done.

    Mr Sood qualified at Guys Hospital in London in 1992 and trained at The Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital (RNOH) in Stanmore where he spent time as Lecturer to the Professorial Unit. He undertook higher training as a visiting Senior Clinical Fellow in Hip and Knee Surgery in two centres of excellence in North America in 2004, where he trained under two of the best hip and knee surgeons in the world. At the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota, he worked with Dr Dan Berry and at Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto with Prof Alan Gross. He has an NHS appointment at Bedford Hospital NHS Trust where he runs a Hip & Knee Unit dealing with the whole spectrum of cases.

    Mr Sood treats all lower limb Sports injuries in athletes and weekend warriors and also has an interest in the treatment of Tendon Pain especially Tendinopathies.

    Mr Sood has extensive experience in knee arthroscopies, ligament reconstruction, hip and knee replacements and revision (re-do) hip and knee replacements. He has excellent outcomes and a very low rate of complications, which are reflected in his statistics on The National Joint Registry.

    Arthroscopy Laparoscopic (key-hole) Surgery Knee Pain
    Mr Sood explained the issue that I had with both knees clearly and concisely in laymen's terms. Two consultant's had previously looked at my knees and advised that I leave them as they were, and go for full knee replacements in approximately 10-15 years time despite me telling them that my knees would regularly give way as I was walking and that I couldn't continue with my usual exercise activities i.e. running and attending the gym in addition to being in constant pain. My quality of life day to day was badly affected. Once Mr Sood had diagnosed the problem he advised on keyhole surgery. He instilled confidence in me from the moment of diagnosis. I therefore had no hesitation in going ahead despite of what I had been told by the other consultant's. The procedure followed very quickly and I was fully aware of what was being done and the recovery period - the aftercare arranged was also second to none. I have made a full recovery and can exercise and run as I used to. My quality of life has been restored. I would have no hesitation in recommending Mr Sood . As well as his medical expertise, he is also very personable and has a very good bedside manner.

    The treatment and care I received from Mr Sood was excellent, I cannot fault the work he has done for me nor the manner in which it was handled. He was a pleasure to talk to and took time to explain everything and also to check on the progress once the operation was complete. One additional plus, following my hip operation the scar I was left with was quite amazing, and incredibly neat. I am grateful to Mr Sood for everything he has done and the improvement he has given me in my quality of life.
