"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,"
