"I was suffering from hip arthritis. The pain made it almost impossible to do the things I loved doing.
I cannot speak highly enough of the care and treatment I received from Mr Sood. Having had cancer treatment and made to feel invisible by a few Consultants it was wonderful to be actually looked at and listened to. I am back horse-riding and can do the things that I couldn’t do before with ease. I would recommend Mr Sood’s practice without hesitation."

Mrs M.C.
Hip replacement

"I was unable to play tennis, walk long distances or feel secure skiing – all activities I had previously enjoyed. When tired I was limping. Ultrasound treatment was prescribed by my GP but was ineffective. Mr Sood diagnosed a damaged cartilage and some wear. He performed an arthroscopy on my knee and the results of the surgery were, for me, life changing. Since the operation, 8 years ago, I have played tennis regularly (at least twice a week), can walk long distances and have skied every year since, although I do wear a light support on the knee for this. Throughout the procedure Mr Sood was confident of success and I felt considerably more optimistic about the outcome. My quality of life changed for the better and I am very grateful and very staisfied with the treatment and aftercare that I received."

Mrs D.P.
Knee arthroscopy for cartilage tear and early wear (joint preservation)


"My knee was locking because of a torn cartilage and I was unable to walk or work without crutches.
I found Mr Sood to be very professional, yet welcoming and willing to listen and act quickly and efficiently. Mr Sood manipulated my knee and unlocked the knee, allowing me to walk unaided a couple of days later. I then underwent the key hole op to fix my torn cartilage to prevent the same issue recurring. Mr Sood is brilliant, very approachable and very caring."

Mrs A.S.
Knee arthroscopy and meniscal surgery

"For some years I could not run anymore and any impact on my right knee was very painful. Mr Sood diagnosed a tear in my meniscus, fixed it and the result is astounding. Recovery was fast and within days I could walk without crutches. After 2 months I started with running again, slowly building it up. I am back to 15 minutes of pain-free running and am continuing to build this up. Overall my knee feels great and I consider the operation a 100% success. The whole experience was superb. Full marks to Mr Sood,"

Total knee replacement.
"I saw Mr. Sood at The Manor Hospital, Biddenham. He listened to what I told him of the history of my knee problems and assured me that he would be able to improve my situation. He has achieved the promised outcome and my knee already has a greater degree of movement."

Total Hip Joint replacement
"In March 2018 I was diagnosed by my GP as having Arthritis in my right hip joint. This was confirmed by subsequent X-Ray. Following lack of progress in getting this resolved on the NHS and a steady worsening of my health and increased pain from my Hip, and following a number of recommendations I consulted Mr Sood. During my initial Consultation he fully explained everything that was involved, answering all my questions and concerns. I was given a date for the operation if I wished to proceed which due to my condition I readily accepted.
The operation consisted of a non cemented Ceramic on Ceramic total hip replacement. I am very pleased to say was a total success. Within a few weeks I was walking normally without a walking stick and have since hiked many miles along rugged Coastal Paths, hills and fields with my wife. I am completely unaware of my new Hip.

ACL reconstruction
"Had my acl op on August 5th 2019. Walked home the same day and after a few painful days as the painkillers wore off it was an upward curve. mr Sood’s expertise in surgery, post op advise, physio and follow ups have all co tributes to a brilliant recovery. I am running after 4 months following surgery and generally feeling great. dr Sood is a superb surgeon and directs you to the finish line with precision and caution."

Knee and hip
"I cannot rate Mr Sood too highly. I know that I will have to have my left knee joint replaced at some time but Mr Sood has found a way of delaying the operation until a time that suits me. I had never heard of using an injection of monovisc gel to ease/remove the pain of a damaged knee but he introduced me to it, with great positive effect. I was also suffering from excruciating pain in my left hip, which he diagnosed as bursitis and treated, also with great effect, with shock wave therapy. I had never heard of that either. He is a consummate professional, friendly, knowledgeable and a good communicator. I am glad that I was recommended to him, and have happily recommended him to others."

Accurate Diagnosis
"I recently saw Mr Sood at his offices on Harley Street. After five months of lower limb pain, two misdiagnoses and being left in limbo without any diagnosis, I was at my wits end.

Mr Sood took the time to listen to my history, do a thorough examination and has helped me to get an accurate diagnosis and steer me onto the right path for treatment.

He is superb - friendly, professional and a great communicator. I have no hesitation in recommending him.
