I was suffering some numbness in my left hand, which was becoming weaker by the day. As a PA my hands are my career, so it was a very scary experience. I was referred to Mr. Gidwani, who diagnosed a compressed nerve and carried out an ulnar nerve release and transposition four days later. He is clearly a first-class surgeon and I received the best possible treatment throughout. Words cannot express how grateful I am to Mr. Gidwani for his care and wonderful skill.

After a fall I was left with a painful wrist, which limited my work and all other activities, so I saw Mr. Gidwani. The process was swift and efficient, with appointment times that suited me. I had to have an arthroscopy and then further surgery to sort out the multiple problems resulting from the injury.
Mr. Gidwani was very helpful and professional. He listened to my concerns and was very reassuring and honest about the potential outcomes. He advised me what I should and shouldn’t be doing and how I could return to work safely. My wrist is now completely healed, with no pain and a full range of movement, largely thanks to his excellent surgical care. I would have no hesitation in returning to see Mr. Gidwani again or referring anyone else to do so.

I was referred to Mr. Gidwani by my consultant with a very high recommendation, and he did not fail to deliver. From the moment I entered his surgery, he advised me on what he recommended I should have done for my wrist. He explained the whole process to me in a very clear and detailed way, which made me more comfortable to go ahead with the surgery.
Considering it was my first operation, and I am not the biggest fan of hospitals, Mr. Gidwani ensured I remained comfortable and aware of what was happening throughout. He checked on my progress, kept asking me questions and even managed to make me laugh whilst I was being operated on!
No doubt a fantastic surgeon, he was highly professional and very personable. Many thanks for all you have done for me.

Dear Mr. Gidwani, I wanted to thank you for looking after me and my wrist. You were always so kind with me. It will be so nice to no longer be in pain with my wrist, something I owe to you and your amazing team at Guy’s and St Thomas’. Again, a huge thank you from the bottom of my heart.
