“Mr Chana has my trust and admiration. He has carried out a full knee replacement and now a Hip replacement on me. He has been very approachful and pleasant to deal with from our first consultation to post Op appointment, explaining what he would do and how and what I needed to do to assist my own recovery after the operations. His staff are polite and efficient. I have recommended him to others and I know of folk who have also been under his care who have nothing but praise for him.“

This wonderful doctor operated on my right knee and I do not know how to thank him. I am like a spring chicken since he replaced it. I am now going to get the other on done.
What a wonderful person, I have great faith in him, he listens to you which is so important. so human and what a hand shake, that can tell you so much about a person

I did my research before choosing a surgeon to perform my total knee replacement. Mr Chana lived up to his reputation and did a superb job. This was not straight forward ; being thirty years down the line from a nasty motorcycle accident the knee was in pretty poor shape. The end result was bordering on miraculous! He was very easy to talk to and showed just as much commitment post op. as he did pre op. Of particular note was a personal phone call from Mr Chana when my op had to be cancelled. It was due to a bladder infection and that posed a risk . It was most reassuring to have the position explained to me , and demonstrates that even when then things do not go as planned good communication is the answer, and more to the point it was from Mr Chana himself; it could so easily have been delegated . So, there we are , top marks all round !

An initial misdiagnosis by the GP (saying I had arthritis), a year down the road Mr Chana did a hip arthroscopy to repair a tear and smooth the head of the femur. It was a long recovery but the surgery was an success and he did an excellent job. 9 months later, I am pain free and no longer even think of my hip. His team in the orthopaedic ward at the Ashford did a great job looking after me post op too. belated thank you!

After my first appointment with Mr. Chana about a Total Knee Replacement he swiftly diagnosed that the additional pains in my thigh were due to bursitis and organised an ultra scan guided injection which to my joy brought fast relief. The knee operation went very smoothly and at my six week review Mr. Chana was very pleased with how well I was able to walk and able to bend my knee to 110 degrees. He kindly removed all the staples at that session to save us an extra hospital visit to a nurse on the following day. We have already recommended Mr. Chana to a friend and assured her of his expertise and his friendly and courteous manner.

I had a consultation with Mr Chana to discuss the possibilties of a hip replacement in July 2015, & decided to go ahead with the operation in the November. I felt very comfortable in discussing the problem & confident. The operation went well, (at the BMI Shelburne), although it a big shock to the system I have recovered well. I no longer have the back pain which has affected me for years. The scar is healing well, with minimal discomfort. After 8 weeks, I do not need a stick or walk with a limp. Although I take a stick with me, more as a visual aid to avoid people bumping into me & knocking me over. I am informed the 2nd hip will need replacing at some point & would want Mr Chana to perform this too.

I had my right foot surgery in October 2015 and cheilectomy and fusion of toe on my left foot in December 2015. Mr Chana gave me realistic expectations of the operations. On every occasion I met with him he was professional, empathetic with a cheerful disposition. Although I was not expecting him to give me a steroid injection into an arthritic joint, he did so at an outpatient appointment to help aleviate the pain in that joint. I am also attending physiotherapy appointments in the hope that my mobility improves. I would certainly recommend Mr Chana to anyone who requires lower limb orthopaedic surgery.

I had a successful right hip operation in 2012 but in 2014 fell off my bike and ruptured the ACL in my left knee, which was reconstructed July 2014. The stress, limping from this injury and subsequent operation, affected my, up that point, successfully replaced right hip. Bursitis developed, giving acute pain both in the daytime, but especially at night. I lost sleep because I could not get comfortable in any position and I had to resign myself to life in the slow lane. Then my osteopath, who had been trying to relieve the pain by weekly treatments , met Mr Chana at a conference. He found out about keyhole surgery that might possibly help me. I got a referral to Mr Chana, who listened carefully to the description of my problem (unlike a previous consultant, who, without even looking at my hip sent me for Cortizone Injections). An operation called an ITB keyhole release was performed and in 10 weeks I was completely healed and pain free. I have a number of friends who have bursitis who have been in pain for years. No- one has claimed that this operation is always successful, but it worked for me and it could well work for others. Mr Chana gave me hope and subsequently, with his help, I got my life back.

I would like to thank Mr Chana enough for the fantastic care I recieved from him and his team. I suffer from rheumatoid arthritis which, over the years, greatly affected my knees and I was in a lot of pain and unable to walk well. Mr Chana performed a right total knee replacement in 2014 and a left total knee replacement in 2015. He was very informative and explained everything to me, which gave me confidence going into and after surgery. I am now pain free and mobilising well. The surgery has made a huge difference to my home and work life.

I felt the care I received from Mr Chana was exemplary and at no point in the process did I feel I was either not listened to or my concerns not addressed. It took only five weeks from my first meeting with Mr Chana to a successful operation in which my right hip was replaced. The whole experience was pleasing and demonstrates the excellence of the NHS.
