Patient testimonial

Mr Bhatia repaired and reconstructed Mrs Garrety’s right tibialis posterior tendon - read her story here.

“Just 8 weeks after surgery, with well-fitting walking boots, I happily walked 8 miles”.

Mr Bhatia’s patient Mrs Monica Lloyd is back enjoying hill walking and Zumba classes after foot surgery. Having had minimally invasive surgery to ease the pain and discomfort of an arthritic big toe, Mrs Lloyd is delighted with the outcome.
An active retiree with many hobbies and interests, Mrs Lloyd had got to the point where the pain in her foot and lower leg was beginning to impact on her day to day activities.  “If I went out in the evening in heels or wedges I had to remove my shoe half way through the evening and then would be unable to get my shoe back on.”

Mrs Lloyd booked an appointment to see Mr Bhatia who examined her foot and sent her straight round to the X-ray department. Mrs Lloyd recalls how impressed she was with the speed of diagnosis - with initial consultation,  X-rays taken and reviewed and her operation booked all in one visit. “Mr Bhatia made me feel so at ease and explained everything to me in layman’s terms”.

With a holiday in the Lake District already in the diary Mrs Lloyd’s concerns she would be unable to accompany her husband on his walks were unfounded.  After having the surgery and undertaking all the exercises prescribed by the Physiotherapist, Mrs Lloyd enjoyed an active week away.
