“ Mr Kumar went through my concerns before and after surgery and made me feel as 'at ease' as possible. I felt very confident in his hands. I have an extremely neat scar following my knee replacement surgery, which went very well and my recuperation is also going well.“

    I am very happy with Mr Kumar. I have had two knee replacements under his care and he has always been very professional, explaining any queries I have had and gone over and above his duty of care. Before I had my knee replacements I researched and asked around and several people I know had very good outcomes with their replacements performed by Mr Kumar. So I opted for Mr Kumar and have been very satisfied. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing knee surgery.

    He was very professional but with a personal twist, I feel like a new man with my new knees, no pain, no more limping and n longer bandy, best thing I’d ever done was having the operations.
