“Mr Sharma was really good; he was helpful and took the time to give full explanations. I hadn’t had an operation before, but Mr Sharma put me at ease and took the time I needed to reassure me and make sure I knew all I needed.
“My operation was eight days after my consultation and the staff were very good and helpful; I have no complaints about any aspect of the care at all. I have been receiving physiotherapy since the operation four weeks ago including hydrotherapy. I’ve gained a lot of movement in my shoulder, but still have some way to go until I’m fully recovered.
My care at Spire Harpenden Hospital was brilliant, everyone was happy and seems to enjoy working there, I was looked after so well throughout my whole treatment and it was a pleasure coming into the hospital.
I was very impressed with Mr Sharma’s expertise and would like to thank him for his exceptional level of care and understanding extended to me as my Consultant. Mr Sharma was always very pleasant and ensured that that I understood his diagnosis and sympathetically explained what arthroscopic decompression surgery was and why it was necessary for me. At my consultation appointments Mr Sharma always took time to explain my progress and ensured that my post op care was tailored to for each stage of my recovery. This extended to Mr Sharma personally ensuring that my Physiotherapy and Hydrotherapy sessions were held at a convenient location to accommodate my personal circumstances. I would also like to thank Mr Sharma’s secretary for all her assistance during my period with Mr Sharma.
After kayaking 70,000 km I wore away my rotator cuff tendon and with Mr Sharma’s excellence as a Surgeon specialising in shoulder problems I made a remarkable recovery. Mr Sharma always took the trouble to explain fully what was involved in the procedure and answered any questions I had courteously and fully.
I believe it is essential to complement the skills of the surgeon and also the willingness to ensure that the physiotherapy exercises and rehabilitation process is followed after the operation. I am now swimming ½ mile every day and also going to the gym, I have been told that in 3 months I have lifted the equivalent of 30 elephants! I have now returned to kayaking and am paddling 15 miles each time.
Mr Sharma was the means of my life opening up after a very painful and dispiriting experience. With his skills and the patient input anything can be achieved.
