What our patient say


“On May 4th 2012, I had a serious car accident which left me without a cruciate knee ligament. I saw Mr. Patel and with his great knowledge he found out the problem however, I started University in September 2014 and I needed the operation quickly. Mr. Patel met my needs and wants urgently. I would recommend him to anyone truly because of his professionalism in work and his knowledge. He’s a great man who has produced miracles with my knee. My physio said ‘he hasn’t seen anything like it’ this was due to Mr. Patel. Many thanks again for your help!”

“I think that when last met on 1st October, I did not express adequately my appreciation of your skills.  I refer not only to your consummate surgical ability, but also to your treatment of patients with courtesy, kindness and lucid explanations as required.  Any early worries (I had none) would have been soothed by the preliminary call to my health insurer – AXA PPP.  A very way, almost dismal speaker said, ‘who is your consultant?  I gave your name.  The tone changed.  The bright cheerful voice said ‘Oh, we know Mr Patel! Go ahead!’  Need I say more?’’

“Once again ‘Thank you’ seems so inadequate for the amazing surgery you perform-particularly on me!!!  But of course, I do thank you from the bottom of my heart.  You are still my HERO…Your kindness and bedside manner I believe are unequalled. I found the noises in theatre quire fascinating (during knee replacement surgery) and as you said, you did work hard.  I too am working hard and physio are so pleased with my progress due to my commitment that I just need to carry on doing at home what I am already doing.  I know recovery will take longer than my hip, but once recovered I trust you will again place me on your list for my right knee replacement.’’

“I just wanted to express my sincere thanks for your treatment and care during and after my total knee replacement surgery.  I had nothing but praise for your warm but highly professional approach to your work.  At all times, you assisted in me being able to make informed choices about my treatment, and enabled an outcome with which I am delighted. Thank you.’’

Stephen Buckley

“I am coming to see you in November for my annual MOT, but wanted to write in advance to show you the results of your surgical skills on my hip.  The pictures show me on top of Great Gable in the Lake District and back in the saddle, both activities that were beyond me before the operation.  My sincere thanks for what you have done for my quality of life.”

“Please accept my grateful and heartfelt thanks for all your help, care and expertise you employed to aid my recovery following a tibial fracture recently.  I’m recovering at home now from what was a rather painful injury.  I know that I am in very good hands and all looks hopeful for a good outcome.  I do really appreciate what you have done for me.’’

“Mr. Patel operated on my bunion and hammer toe at Lancaster BMI Hospital. The treatment was first class and the operation was successful. His personal care and kindness was greatly appreciated by us.”

A Wilson

“I had my hip operation on the 27th March 2017.  I am just writing to say a big thank you to all of you.  I am now free of pain and back to work.  I was treated very well and I respect all the hard work you do.  Thank you so much.”

Lorna Weir

“I just wanted to personally thank you for how amazing you all were to me.  Not only did you ease my nerves and deal with me so quickly, it honestly feels like I never had surgery and I’m back to a normal life!  Moving to Cambodia in November to teach English with a working knee will be so much easier!!”

Jake Edlin

“A note to say a very special thank you for my new hip replacement carried out on 5th September 2014.  I am recovering well, so once again a million thanks for your wonderful work.  I can now get on with my life, which has been on hold for most of 2014. Thank you.’’

Muriel Storey

“Many thanks for looking after me so well during my recent stay in the BMI.  You made my whole experience as pleasant as it could be and I feel my knee replacement op has been a great success so far!”

Jean Fowler

“I want to say a very big thank you for all care I received at the Spire.  From the moment I arrived to being discharged, I was treated with respect and dignity.  It meant a very lot to me and helped make experience better.”

“Words can’t explain how grateful I am for your kindness, professionalism and the care you have given me to be able to get on my feet again.  Thank you so much!”

Barbara Waterson

“Thank you so much for your care, and my two new hips!  I have got my life back again pain free to talk in my beloved lakes again.’’

Margaret Chapman

“From a personal perspective, I am now approaching 10 weeks after surgery; the crutches have gone, and the pain and accompanying limp that blighted me prior to the operation are all but a distant memory. I can walk normally again! For me, this is testament enough to Mr. Patel’s skillful ability as a surgeon. Mr. Patel has a thoroughly pleasant and relaxing demeanor about him. Prior to the operation he did his utmost to explain all pertinent aspects of the micro-fracture procedure, and in a way that made sense to me. Following surgery, I thought it superb that Mr. Patel showed me pictures taken during the procedure and further elaborated on what he had done. He displays a level of care that should be the envy of other medical professionals. I would be more than happy to endorse and recommend Mr. Patel to anybody who finds themselves in need of knee surgery.”

“Following many years of deteriorating deformity and pain I finally plucked up the courage to see someone regarding my feet. From the moment I met Mr. Patel my fears were allayed and I had total confidence in him. From the initial consultation, the operation, my recovery period and final attendance with Mr. Patel I could not have had a better Consultant. He explained the whole procedure and recuperation process, answered my questions and put me completely at ease. I would have no hesitation returning to Mr. Patel, should the need arise and have already recommended him to another family member. My feet were in the safest hands!”

Linda Merrick

“During April and May 2013, I had a total hip replacement undertaken by Mr. Kuntal Patel whose professional qualifications and experience spoke for themselves. His excellent administrative staff and their procedures as well as the confidence I gained in him during his prompt and supportive interviews has told me that I have been fortunate to be in the care of a kind and clever surgeon.”
