  • I am writing with regard to my hip replacement operation that I had on 8th June 2017. The operation was carried out by Dr Vedi at the Bishops Wood Hospital. My overall experience was of total satisfaction, starting from the arrival right through to the aftercare/physio etc. I have now been fully discharged from Dr Vedi's care, and I'm well on the way to making a full recovery and now look forward to leading a more active life once again. I would like to offer my sincere thanks and gratitude to all involved in my stay at Bishops Wood.

  • May I take this opportunity to thank you for the wonderful way in which you have operated on my knee in November 2016.

    To date I have not suffered any post-operative pain nor did I use any painkillers whatsoever.

    My knee is completely free to do whatever I want.

    I can only attribute this situation to your knowledge and expertise in the matter for which I am most grateful to you.

  • I have recently had both of my hips replaced by Mr Vedi. Before the operations I was in severe pain, not very mobile, unable to drive and couldn't work in my garden.

    The operations were both done with epidural and slight sedation, afterwards the pain from the hips had gone, it was incredible. It's six months since my last operation and my quality of life has been transformed, I'm driving, gardening and have taken up Pilates.

    I thank Mr Vedi and the wonderful staff at Bishops Wood, including my physiotherapist Sunita Grieco for her support and encouragement.

  • Dear Mr Vedi

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your team for the first class treatment I received at Bishops Wood Hospital in both April 2016 and more recently January 2017.

    I would highly recommend you and your team particularly Emma Morecroft who is absolutely first class and made me feel very safe and secure, particularly as I am a bit of a coward when it comes to spinal blocks.

    Yours sincerely

  • Dear Mr Vedi

    These are a few lines to thank you for your excellent work on my replacement hip. For me such surgery was a voyage into the unknown but I was extremely encouraged by my several friends beforehand for whom you carried out this operation and everyone recommended your work and subsequent treatment very highly.

    As you said at our first meeting, the operation would change my lifestyle and it did.

    Thank you again for your help and advice.

  • Mr Vedi operated on my right knee, providing a state of the art new knee joint. I have been delighted with every aspect of the surgery and post operative care. I now have excellent movement and range in the new knee, and this surgery enabled me to travel to Australia a couple of months later. Mr Vedi also recommended an arthroscope for my left knee, and after the procedure this has further improved mobility in my left knee joint.

    I would highly recommend Mr Vedi's surgical excellence to anyone considering knee surgery.

  • Mr Vedi's professional and compassionate manner inspired confidence as he described the prosthesis he intended to use and checked that I understood the risks. The surgery was very efficient and the benefit was immediate - the pain had disappeared. Mr Vedi has monitored my post-op progress and I cannot imagine better treatment. I have a new life!

  • I am a 61 year old lady who likes to stay fairly fit, by walking, sailing and going to a gym once a week.

    During 2009 I developed bursitis in my right hip.  The bursitis pain was like a hot spot ache in the joint and was particularly bad at night, meaning that sleep was difficult.  I usually slept on my right side and had to learn to sleep on my left side with a hot water bottle balanced on my right hip The first course of action was anti inflammatory drugs (600mgs twice a day) which gave me only temporary relief and I was concerned about what they were doing to my stomach.

    The second course of action was to have a cortisone injection into the bursa.  This provided a short term relief of a few weeks each time and during 6 months I had 3 injections, the last one under a type of x-ray. Too many injections, I now realise, in too short a time.

    Eventually, I heard through an NHS Consultant about Mr Vedi's blood plasma regeneration treatment.  I was told that it was in its experimental stage in this country.  However, I researched the technique on the internet and found that it has become popular in America, especially with athletes.  As the technique involves using the patient’s own blood and not a steroid, I was keen to try it.  I had some money saved and after a year of pain, I decided to pay to have the treatment done privately as I just couldn’t wait any longer.

    Mr Vedi performed the procedure under sedation on 25th March 2010 and I have been pain free ever since.  I can’t quite believe it and have delayed writing this, in case it wore off.  Even if it does wear off, this will be the longest that I have been pain free for over a year and I would certainly repeat the procedure since the side effects are nil.

  • I had it done by Mr Vedi and haven't looked back since. All of the pain has gone and I'm back to running as if there had never been a problem....when just a couple of months ago it hurt to even walk.

    Like the other posts, I wanted to avoid surgery and hence felt a bit strange going to hospital, but that was to get the injection guided in by ultrasound to make sure it went in the best place (apparently).

    He's based near Rickmansworth (Bishops Wood hospital) and I thoroughly recommend him.

  • I was very nervous about having Hip replacement surgery but I really need not have worried. From the time of our first meeting Mr Vedi explained everything clearly and carefully and he always had plenty of time for my queries. I felt very reassured. He did a wonderful job with my new hip and I was home in 3 days and walking unaided in 2 weeks. It is a year now since my operation and I have had no problems at all. I cannot thank Mr Vedi enough for what he did for me and I would also like to thank the staff at Bishops Wood who were so helpful and caring.

    On behalf of my Wife and myself, i would like to express our sincere thanks to you for all your assistance relating to my Wife's operation - much appreciated.

    May we also take this opportunity to thank Mr Vedi for taking on her case and for all his T.L.C. We were so pelased she was under his care. It did help her enourmously due to what happened prior to his care.

    Once again, thank you both.

  • Interestingly, these apparent hip pains were successfully diagnosed by Vikas Vedi in 2013 by means of an isotope scan as acute spinal problems and treated by Shaun Ridgeway by nerve root injections into L3 & L4 right in May 2013 with excellent results up to now.

    This might be a useful snippet of information, as I had been struggling on the tennis court with my right hip for 13 years but now I am cured. So here is to you, Vik & Shaun, some good news and very best wishes for continues success & happiness in 2015 and beyond !

  • I had a total hip replacement carried out by Mr Vedi at Mount Vernon Hospital in December 2014, and can honestly say the results have changed my life completely. Before the operation I was in almost constant pain, waking several times each night, unable to walk more than 100 yards without severe pain, and having to really take my time before I bent down to pick something up from the floor. Now, after only two months I am able to enjoy walking the dog, generally sleep through the night without waking, and am able to swim 12 lengths at my local pool without pain. Marvellous!

    I would also like to praise the care and kindness I received from everyone during my stay. Without fail everybody I came in contact with, from the surgical team to the porter who wheeled my bed, and of course the nurses and physiotherapists, treated me with such consideration it is hard to know how they could have been better. Thank you Mr Vedi!

  • After a consultation in August with Mr Vedi he recommended an arthroscopy on both knees.

    I had them both done and I was up walking the next morning and every week I felt an improvement and now my knees feel wonderful and I am back at the gym without any problems.

    I cannot thank Mr Vedi enough and all the staff at Bishopswood who were so helpful, caring and always had a smile.

  • I just wish to thank Mr Vedi for the whole of his care during my hip replacement. At my consultation he said my life would return to normal in due course and indeed it has.

    Everything worked exactly as he advised and I would have no hesitation in recommending anyone to his care. I had ‘put off ‘ seeking advice through fear for two years.

    Best Wishes.

The hospital stay and the spinal block procedure were fantastic and after the surgery I was up the following day and walking pain free with one crutch within a week.

  • HIP

    "After years of increasing pain and decreasing mobility from the arthritis in my hip, I found it difficult to imagine that it could ever be better. Mr Vedi explained to me that a hip replacement would make a significant difference and was very reassuring about the procedure and the long-term prognosis. The operation itself was quick and effective, and my recovery very speedy. I was able to walk only a few hours after the operation and the pain had disappeared. Very soon after returning home I was walking normally again, and managing longer and longer distances. Mr Vedi was kind and informative throughout the whole process and made me feel that there was nothing to worry about. I now find it hard to remember what my hip felt like before the operation, and am looking forward to a much more active future."

  • 'I am a Russian female aged 72. In May 2010 I started to feel an intense pain in my hip. Since then the pain increased and I found it more and more difficult to walk regardless of hundreds of injections and tablets of pain killers and anti-inflammatory drugs that I have taken. I had a diagnose of the hip joint degradation in the 3rd stage. The conservative treatment would not help and the hip joint was recommended. I was greatly disturbed by the prospect of the operation. Eventually I got accustomed to the necessity of the surgery but I felt great fear of it. In Russia, such operations are done since only a few years ago and the success statistics is not encouraging. Happily I had an opportunity to have a hip replacement done in the UK. After consultations with a few surgeons and some internet research I chose Mr Vikas Vedi to replace my hip. I do not regret my choice. On the 16th of August 2011 this talented gentleman so brilliantly performed the hip replacement surgery in just 45 minutes that I now feel the joy of the second lease of life. I was lucky to be operated by a Master of his profession. Dr Fernandes the anaesthesiologist did his part excellently as well. I am endlessly grateful to the outstanding specialist who helped me in my very difficult condition.

    My name is...and I was a patient of yours at Bishopswood Hospital a couple of years ago.

    I broke my ankle 3 times in a very short space of time, as I was too keen to get back to sporting interests, and eventually you pinned it back together!!

    I feared that I wouldn't be able to keep up the running and sporting interests, but you reassured me that your skills would keep me going for a few more years.

    Well, you were right and I have just run the London Marathon 2011 (for cancer research) and completed it in a good time of 4hrs 32mins. I didnt experience any ankle or knees problems so your efforts defiantly worked!

    I am now deciding what my next challange is, and although it would be nice to see you again, I hope that I don't!!
