Testimonial Extracts

"I wanted to make you aware of the substantial benefits this surgery has provided. I am now able to move my left arm significantly higher than the recorded 40 degrees you saw during my consultation.

There has been a significant improvement to my arm mobility and I believe this is as a direct result of the surgery. For me this was the more beneficial outcome.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for allowing me to progress straight to the surgical option on this occasion and allow me to have a much improved quality of life."

"Right after the operation, Mr Mehta spoke to me and explained exactly what he had done, reassured me and encouraged me to start moving my arm as soon as possible, so that I was in no doubt what I was able to do post-operatively......I cannot fault his care and expertise and would like to thank him for everything he has done for me in helping to improve my shoulder pain significantly and for his caring and thorough approach."

"I had not heard of, or met you, prior to AXA giving me your name and they could not have done better. I hope that the results of my Carpal Tunnel surgery are as satisfactory to you as they certainly are for me . I have regained my ability to pick up a pin! Fine control"
