From my first consultation with Mr Gupta, I found him to be very attentive. He understood the pain I was in and the limitations of movement I was suffering from. He took time to explain the total elbow replacement procedure. I was fortunate to receive a cancellation appointment and therefore the procedure was carried out a lot earlier than I had expected. At first I was very nervous and apprehensive but after seeing Mr Gupta on the day of the operation he reassured me and put my mind at ease. The operation went well. The following morning I commenced physiotherapy. One month later I am pleased to say that I have already regained most of the movements from my arm and most importantly I am no longer in pain!

Mr Gupta managed to tread the sometimes difficult line between professionalism and empathy exceptionally well. He analysed my condition thoroughly and made time to ensure I understood what he was doing and why. His recommendations throughout and final diagnosis were clear and reassuring.

I cannot begin to express my gratitude to Mr Gupta. In January 2023 I broke my collarbone in France in a skiing accident - it was a break very close to the shoulderblade and therefore needed surgery. I had completely inappropriate surgery in France, because they inserted a pin (like a knitting needle). Within days I was in huge amounts of pain as the pin was moving itself outwards, scissoring through the bone and the end of the pin making a prominent lump on my upper arm. I went to the NHS and they seemed to think it was fine and planned to remove the pin in a few weeks time. From an x-ray it was clear the collarbone fragments were already beginning to move apart, but they were not unduly worried about this. After that appointment I became extremely anxious, and after some research contacted Mr Gupta who saw me just a few days later. He explained very calmly and kindly that I needed to have the pin removed as soon as possible and replaced with a proper plate and screws. Shortly thereafter he performed the operation. I was very pleased indeed with the result - he had had to use the same scar as the first operation, yet it healed beautifully. I have regained full mobility and have no pain. A year later (February 2024) I opted to have the metalwork removed, as I was nervous having it in forever, and couldn't really sleep on the side containing the metalwork. Mr Gupta gave me very clear information about the pros and cons of doing so, and I felt confident to go ahead. Once again the incision had to take place on the same scar site, and once again it has healed incredibly well (I have had compliments for the neatness of my scar!). I now feel as though I had never broken it in the first place. I genuinely dread to think what would have happened if I had not found Mr Gupta, and had only had the pin removed. I presume eventually the NHS may have decided to plate it but I think I would have endured a huge wait and a lot of pain.

Was referred to Mr Gupta after breaking my thumb on my dominant hand and then being referred by a physiotherapist who wanted to find out what was actually going on with all the tendons/ligaments etc (and not just the bones from the X-ray). Mr Gupta arranged for an MRI scan within a couple of days and then on reviewing the findings suggested that I could have ultrasound-guided corticosteroid injections into the joint (and possibly tendon) to aid with the recovery. He gave me the option of either doing this within a few days or waiting a few weeks to see how physiotherapy went - I chose to have it done ASAP so that it would hopefully speed things along with my physio. The ultrasound-guided injections were carried out by a superb team who were so reassuring and kind that I felt in safe hands at all times and who left me with 'after care' instructions too. When I noticed some bumps appear on my thumb joint, I emailed Mr Gupta questioning this and he replied within the hour letting me know it was residual crystals that would dissipate over time. (Great service and incredibly reassuring). After a further 8 weeks of physio and a vast improvement to mobility and general use of my hand/thumb, Mr Gupta was so pleased with the process that he discharged me but also said I could contact him again if ever I had any issues/questions etc. A total care package provided by Mr Gupta and his team (even his PA was lovely when booking my appointments!). I am more than happy to now have a working hand/thumb and will continue with the physio exercises until I'm (hopefully) back to near 100% again. A big thank you to Mr Gupta and his entire team for what they have done for me, which even though it was "just a thumb" plays a vital part in everyday life and I now feel that I am nearly back to new again! THANK YOU!

​Left shoulder complex multifragmentary fracture hemiarthroplasty plus multifragment cerclage/tuberosity reconstruction plus biceps tenodesis arising from high speed ski crash Having been helicoptered and off the mountain in chamonix and air ambulanced back to the UK multiple surgeons did not even wish to countenance the operation needed . Only the fingers in my left hand moved a little and the 8 cm snapped upper half of my humerus bone had rotated 90 degrees pressing against nerves and main artery. After loads of scans of bones arteries nerve tests over a two week period mr Gupta warned me the outcome was uncertain till he went in and saw exactly what was going on. Amazingly replaced the shattered ball and put in the rod to my elbow and then attached loads of bone fragments together so all the tendons rotator cuff were reattached and saved my natural socket. My fingers had started to work a bit and my forearm was moving a fraction just before the operation (after nearby 3 weeks in hospital so all the tests could be done ) . After the operation he told me to start working hard under physio supervision within 3 days of the surgery . I could barely move a thing and my upper arm was dead due to crushed nerves. For the next two years under his supervision with physio no training slowly but surely things started to work. Within a year I was driving mountain biking ( did an off road 100km night time charity ride !) and even went skiing at the two year mark . I’m getting stronger and there really nothing I can’t do apart from pull ups and monkey bars though I have done a go ape ! It’s been amazing and frankly in my opinion Mt Gupta walks on water. Thankyou !!!
