I first attended Spire Cheshire Hospital in April 2013 for a consultation with Mr Nikhil Pradhan, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon, who then referred me for an X-ray. My results confirmed that I needed a knee replacement on my right knee, which I then went on to have at Spire Cheshire Hospital.

The care I received at the hospital was great. All the staff were very helpful and supportive. After the operation I was told that I had to persevere with the physiotherapy exercises as it was an essential part of my recovery, my physiotherapist was reassuring and encouraged me throughout.

As a result of this I was able to resume Scottish country dancing, a passion of mine, without any pain or discomfort.

In February 2018, I saw Mr Nikhil Pradhan again and following an X-ray it was confirmed that I needed a knee replacement on my left knee. Mr Pradhan fully explained the procedure to me again and recommended the iASSIST bespoke total knee replacement as it was less invasive and had a quicker recovery time than the more traditional knee replacement.

My post-operative care was similar to last time and the physiotherapist was essential to my recovery, encouraging me to persevere with exercise because as they say ‘use it or lose it’.

My overall experience at Spire Cheshire Hospital has been very good and I am looking forward to resuming full Scottish country dancing again in the very near future. I would thoroughly recommend Mr Pradhan for his professional manner and expertise and the physiotherapists for their help and support.

Mr Nikhil Pradhan, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon said, “Anne is a delightful lady who likes her Scottish dancing and regularly goes for walks to keep herself fit and active. Anne has undergone replacements for both her knees using computer assisted technologies including the iASSIST minimally invasive total knee replacement. She followed our enhanced recovery protocol and made an excellent recovery. I am pleased that I could help Anne get back to her passion and do the Scottish dance again.”
