Ankle Arthroscopy - Richard's experience

Richard Catt underwent an ankle arthroscopy perfomed by orthopaedic consulatnt Mr Jitendra Mangwani. 

I was in good hands and the advice I was given was helpful and appropriate

"My experience of being a patient of Mr Mangwani has been nothing but positive. The initial consultation was extremely helpful, and having assessed me Mr Mangwani explained options and their recovery periods.

"Whilst I felt fully in control of my treatment I equally had the confidence that I was in good hands and the advice I was given was helpful and appropriate towards the treatment and operations I ultimately received.

"The day-care operation couldn’t have gone better and whilst once again I understood any risk, the outcome far exceeded my expectation. Not only was the whole procedure completed in a day, but the discomfort was absolutely minimal, pain control was superb and recovery under careful guidance from the physiotherapists at Spire Leicester Hospital was as quick as I could possibly have hoped for.

"I have tiny scars that continue to fade and Mr Mangwani followed up with support and advice that has allowed me to reach an essentially pain free condition for normal day to day activity. I have even returned to some sporting activity. I can only recommend wholeheartedly both the care from Mr Mangwani and the Spire Hospital in Leicester."
