I am a patient of Mr Hinduja who has recently undergone a right wrist synovectomy. I had been having problems with my wrist for several months and had injections carried out by my GP with no benefit. Upon seeing Mr Hinduja in consultation I could not have been put more at ease. He has a calm, professional manner and he quickly diagnosed my problem. I was sent for a scan and nerve conduction studies which confirmed my diagnosis. I was listed for surgery and could not be happier with the outcome. The pain and swelling in my wrist has completely resolved and I am able to use my arm and hand again as normal.
I could not praise Mr Hinduja enough for the fantastic service I have been given and would certainly recommend him to others.
