    Professor Kavarthapu has been excellent throughout the process of diagnosing my hip problem. At our first meeting he tested a whole range of my movements, clearly explained what was happening, showed me a model hip to demonstrate what problems could occur and helped me to get further tests quickly. He then arranged for me to have a follow-up consultation with him sooner than I had thought possible. During this consultation a course of treatment was agreed on and I have been very satisfied with the progress of my case up to now.
