Mr Vemulapalli took his time in listening to what my problem was and we then had a discussion about what my options were. It was decided first to try the less invasive option of Cortosone injections, but they failed to help with the pain.
We decided together that what I needed was an ankle fusion. This was done originally when I was thirteen but due to the ageing process, I now needed surgery again. We discussed all that the procedure would involve and any foreseen complications.
Due to my past medical history he wanted me to meet with the anethist before a final decision was made. I really couldn’t fault the care and attention he has given me prior to my surgery ( I am 6 weeks post op)
My follow up has gone smoothly and both he and I are both pleased with my progress. Mr V as he is affectionately known by staff, has always been very polite and courteous at every consulation . He also has a good sense of humour.
