    A very professional and competent surgeon who listens to the patient and explains the procedure, complications and expectations. A clear plan of post op care was given. I am extremely pleased with my shoulder replacement. I am 3 weeks post op and pain free, some discomfort but nothing like I experienced pre op. I can happily recommend Mr Monga.

    Mr Puneet Monga is an outstanding individual. His style gives one every assurance that he has everything under control as indeed he has. Mr Monga performed a new shoulder operation for me. It is an operation he is very proficient at performing and I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending him to anyone. I had suffered a great deal prior to my op and whilst it is a heavy duty op, Mr Monga did an excellent job and now I am pain free and living my life to the full.

    You carried out surgery on my left shoulder. I attended my final outpatient appointment today when one of your colleagues confirmed a successful outcome and discharged me. My purpose in writing is to thank you for bringing this situation about. Having had previous and unsuccessful operations on my shoulder I was pretty much resigned to life being permanently uncomfortable. However your clinical skills and expertise, together with those of your medical and nursing colleagues, has made an immense difference to the quality of my life. I am now free of pain and discomfort. Thank you for your time and the opportunity to benefit from your highly professional skills. They have made a substantial and very positive difference to my life.

    Now that I have been discharged, I would like to take this opportunity to express to you my sincere gratitude for a job well done. Will you please pass on my thanks to all the people who make up the team - the theatre staff, the ward staff, the porters and the physios (particularly Robert) and not forgetting the receptionists. Everyone was so pleasant and so patient and I always felt that I was in excellent hands. Thanks again.

    I was previously diagnosed with an AC Joint Separation, upon the first consultation with Dr Monga he quickly diagnosed by follow a few steps that my issue were definitely not related to AC Separation. From the 1st visit I had gained trust within Dr Monga & soon became aware of his knowledgably skills within the area of shoulder injuries. This was of high importance to me as I knew from the first consultant what my possible options would be. I found this gentleman to be an excellent professional in his knowledge of my condition. However I accept he is a consultant in this area & should therefore be knowledgeable. What I was impressed with was the manner of how he explained the various options & the pro / cons with every option. The expectation setting of next step – MRI Scan to confirm & identify anything else which might be causing issues. I believe Dr Monga went the extra mile to explain in the simplest way possible, he even drew diagrams / googled & allowed me to take picture onto my phone. Dr Monga followed up on every appointment & kept with the timescales agreed for the actual operation. I’m now in recovery & felt the need to provide this feedback!
