I feel like a new woman – and that’s me at 85!

"Mr Ganapathi deserves recognition after the success I’ve had following my knee operations."

After over 12 months of pain from an existing hip replacement I went to see Mr Ganapathi on the recommendation of a friend.
At my first appointment and after comparing x-rays he diagnosed a loose prosthetic hip cup.
I subsequently underwent a total hip revision, with minimal invasive surgery.
I was discharged from hospital after 3 days and was walking, pain free, with no aid after 4 weeks.
I have been extremely pleased with the results of my operation.

When Linda Winson fell over her pet dog while walking in the countryside she broke her right leg so seriously that her knee was completely smashed.

Despite an emergency operation to address the immediate problem, she was still unable to walk unaided. She feared losing her independence and having to change her whole lifestyle.

She went to Mr Ganapathi privately and had a complex knee replacement procedure.

As her knee was so badly damaged a special mould had to be made which the makers could not guarantee would work, but Mr Ganapathi said he would take the responsibility for it.

She had surgery, the knee was fitted and she is now back walking her dogs again.

Two years after the fall she said she is extremely grateful to Mr Ganapathi for enabling her recovery.

She said: “I feel very lucky that he was the doctor I saw. He is so professional and greatly experienced in his field. I feel I was treated by the best person for the job and the results have been better than all my expectations.”

I watched by grandfather reach 96 years with osteoarthritic hips, and am so grateful that today we have modern surgical techniques, which make such long-suffering no longer necessary. Mr Ganapathi was highly recommended to me by my local GP and I was fortunate to be able to see him in Spire Yale Hospital Wrexham, which manages to combine the very latest equipment with first class patient care at all levels. Mr Ganapathi is a highly respected orthopaedic surgeon noted among his colleagues and supporting staff for his attention to detail. He is concise and positive in his explanation and advice and I was so pleased with my right hip replacement that I naturally came back to him when my left hip gave problems. Both times I was out of crutches in less than four weeks. It may sound an overstatement at 77 years to say I am as good as new. But that is certainly how it feels.

Three weeks after surgery I was able to walk five miles without the aid of crutches or even a stick

The treatment was excellent throughout, from all the staff and the consultant who operated on my hip. I have now regained my physical and mental health being pain free after years of having pain and unable to walk or stand for even short periods. Many many thanks to all that attended to me.

I can’t praise Mr Ganapathi and the entire team at Spire Yale enough Retired policewoman and 'keep fit' enthusiast, Audrey Edwards started getting hip pain two years ago. Scans showed she had a tear in a ligament in her groin.

It meant she had to give up her hobbies of running, fell walking, boxercise and going to the gym.

Mr Ganapathi performed a keyhole surgery hip impingement operation on her and Audrey is now delighted to be back running again.

She said: “Before the op I was in constant pain 24/7, but now I hardly have any pain at all and my mobility is fully restored. I can’t believe how quickly I recovered from the procedure and am back to doing all the activities I love once more. I can’t praise Mr Ganapathi and the entire team at Spire Yale enough.”

Thank you Mr Ganapathi for giving me my life back. I now have no pain. Also I would like to say that my care at the Spire Yale Hospital was excellent.

We chose Mr Ganapathi because he was the surgeon who specialised in the Patient Specific Instrumentation (PSI) method of knee replacement and we had heard from people we know that it had been very successful for them. Even a person who has had a dual knee replacement was active very soon afterwards. My operation and recovery at Spire Yale, Wrexham was almost pain free. After surgery I mentioned to my husband that the knee replacement didn’t feel any different than my own knee. I would have no hesitation in recommending this procedure.
