After months of chronic, debilitating pain, i consulted Mr. Rao who diagnosed the need for an urgent hip replacement. After clearly explaining exactly what was involved, including the risks, I felt confident in placing myself in his expert hands.The operation was undertaken a week later and that evening Mr.Rao explained that it had been a success insofar as he was concerned. My recovery was entirely in my own hands. There is now a hard road ahead but, I feel confident of a complete recovery because Mr. Rao's expert and caring approach has given me the encouragement to succeed. I cannot thank him enough.
