Prof. Singh is a through professional. He takes all the time to explain the condition and management. I went to see him as I was struggling with my shoulder pain, everyone kept telling me it was frozen shoulder, but Prof. Singh immediately told it was torn tendon which was confirmed on MRI scans. I then underwent surgery and am well on the road to recovery. Thoroughly recommend Prof. Singh, thanks for giving my shoulder back.
Written by a patient at KIMS Hospital
I work as a physiotherapist and unfortunately I had to have a SLAP repair due to a sports injury. I am fairly pedantic (overzealous as my girlfriend tells me) and I wanted to make sure I had a decent surgeon to carry out the op. I was recommended Prof. Bijay Singh by a colleague and after some further research I was pretty confident with the choice. Consultants sadly sometimes present as slightly detached or “above” their patients/ colleagues…. this was far from the case with Prof. Singh. He was fully engaged, completed a thorough assessment and then explained the procedure and plan of action. Me being “overzealous” emailed him a ton of questions and I was more than pleasantly surprised to find he’d answered them all with plenty of detail! No one would enjoy the op or the initial 96 hours following surgery, but after that it really wasn’t too bad. I may have known what I was doing regarding the rehab but there was plenty of guidance on offer had I chosen to use it. I can honestly say It is now 8 months on (this review is way overdue!) and I can do everything I was doing before the injury. I do still get stiffness with the shoulder, but this eases after 2-3mins stretching pre exercise. To clarify, I can now handstand walk, Olympic lift and I am attempting a channel swim in September of this year and the shoulder has not given me any issues for the last 2 months. I am genuinely happy to recommend Prof. Bijay Singh – I really am grateful.
FG (Patient Underwent Total – Elbow Replacement)
‘I just wanted to write a few words to tell you how much I have appreciated the treatment you have provided over the last two years. You have always made me feel very comfortable at all stages of my treatment, explaining everything in detail, reassuring me when necessary and always being friendly and very professional.
I particularly appreciated your input at all stages of my operation – a full explanation of the procedures, the actual operation, the recovery and her subsequent after care. It is so refreshing to find a professional like yourself who takes the time to listen to his patients and interact in such a kind and sympathetic manner. I would just like to say thank you very much for all you have done for me while I have been under your care.’
PA (Fracture Clavicle – Collar Bone)
‘Following a fall on 30th May I was seen in the A&E department and transferred to the ward under a consultant who I did not see. My care was transferred under your care in August 2011. A registrar arranged me to see you and was diagnosed with a frozen shoulder. I underwent removal of metal work and manipulation successfully in September 2011. I am extremely grateful for the speed in which the second operation was performed as by then I was both frustrated and in pain. Following physiotherapy i have now regained full daily use of the arm and the scar is almost invisible. I am grateful for all that you and your team did for me.’
DR ( 85 yr old with Proximal Humerus Fracture treated with ORIF)
“As I was being wheeled down to theatre, I was told I had the ‘top man’ for the operation. Reassuring words indeed as it was my first operation at age 85. You really made me at ease at my first interview the previous day and am impressed that I saw you at my post op appointments. I cannot fault the treatment at the hospital at all and you were careful to monitor my progress in the arm movements. The most difficult think I had to do was to reach up to hang washing out on the line. I do that easily now and in fact do most things. I wish to express my gratitude to the excellent care in hospital. You did a wonderful repair in my arm.’
RB ( My first appointment with Prof. Singh I was very nervous and in much pain. Prof Singh has a kind reassuring calming mannerism. The type of surgeon that is very honest with his patients, you are told the positive and negative of the operation you require. After my first appointment I felt confident he would look after me to the best of his ability. My post operation treatment was excellent, Prof Singh gave me appointments regular after my operation, he would not discharge me until I felt I no longer required his care. I think I was looking through more coloured glasses before my operation although I was told it would take at least 3 – 6 months to recover I thought about a month and I would be fine. Believe me it takes a long time. I am so grateful to Prof. Singh.)
MS (Dupuytren’s Contracture – Bendy fingers)
In the past year I have had two operations on my hands conducted by Prof. Singh, these were my first experiences of surgery of any kind, on each occasion I was treated with the utmost courtesy and respect. All my questions were answered clearly and any fears I might have had were dispersed. The aftercare on both occasions was done efficiently and promptly.
Altogether I cannot praise the whole procedure too highly – Thank you
