“I was naturally anxious to learn that I needed hip replacement surgery at the relatively young age of 63.
“However, from the first time I met Mr Ahmed, I knew I could have every confidence in him, given his obvious experience as a surgeon and his excellent communication skills. At each appointment, he encouraged me to ask questions, listened carefully and gave me clear explanations about what was involved in the surgery and recovery period. Throughout my pre-op period I knew that I was in safe, capable hands and was confident that my surgery would be a success. In particular, prior to my surgery, Mr Ahmed was extremely thorough in investigating and eliminating my individual risk factors.
“Post-surgery, he was there each day to see how I was progressing, even on the weekend. I can’t fault his pre-op and post-op care, likewise that of the Spire Murrayfield Hospital staff. My hip surgery has significantly changed my life for the better, given that prior to surgery, I couldn’t put any weight on my right leg. From only a few weeks post-op, I was back to walking many kilometres each week.
“Mr Ahmed is professional, kind and caring, and clearly considers his patients’ health the top priority. My amazing recovery is testament to his care and experience as a surgeon. I recommend him without hesitation or reservation.”
