Thank you for making major surgery run extremely smoothly....

I can highly recommend Mr Arvinte. I had a total hip replacement in Sep 2021, the surgery was extremely successful as is my post-op recovery. Mr Arvinte was open and honest - I required this procedure at a slightly younger age and he fully explained the possible need for revision in later life, allowing me to make a well-informed decision. I found Mr Arvinte approachable, efficient and communicative, taking time to answer all my questions. Thank you for making major surgery run extremely smoothly. Bedford Hospital Patient V   |   26th October 2021  |  

My recovery has been excellent...

I felt that my problem received full attention from an experienced and skilled surgeon. After the hip operation, despite delays caused by COVID, I was contacted by ‘phone and later received not one but two appointments to review my recovery. I did not expect so much, and such thorough, post- operation attention. Living through recovery was inevitably an amazing experience. This time the operation was a ‘Revision’ and I tried to describe how later stages felt but, with limited medical understanding, I might have seemed to be complaining. That certainly was not so. My recovery has been excellent: I am delighted that my mobility is so much improved, and therefore my life is too. I am able to do a full day’s work with only the limits of old age, and that is down to the best medical care it is possible to receive. Bedford Hospital Patient Y   |   26th November 2021  |  

I'm most grateful to Mr Arvinte for doing such a fantastic job!...

Mr Arvinte was considerate and helpful from start to finish. He carefully explained the hip operation I was fortunate enough to be offered. The procedure was a great success; the chiropractor I saw recently was most impressed with my right & left leg length - perfect! The post-op consultation was also informative and understandable. I'm most grateful to Mr Arvinte for doing such a fantastic job! BMI The Manor Hospital Patient DD   |   4th January 2022  |  

Thank you once again....

Mr Arvinte has now carried out two hip replacements the right one having been performed a few years ago; I have complete faith in Mr Arvinte's capabilities and will continue to ask for him personally should I require any further care. I would have no hesitation in recommending him to friends and family should my advice be sort as he is a caring person that always has time to listen to his patient. Thank you once again. Bedford Hospital Patient CC   |   4th January 2022  |  

Exceptional care from the first time...

Mr Arvinte has given me exceptional care from the first time I met him till today when I was signed off. He has explained everything about my hip condition, the reason for needing a total hip replacement and the process of an operation. I have felt totally at ease, supported and relaxed. His friendly manner has helped enormously, I felt that I could discuss any worries I might have. He gave me confidence. Totally professional. Thankyou Bedford Hospital Patient   |   1st March 2024  |  

Feel at ease throughout all process...

Mr Arvinte made me feel at ease throughout the whole process whilst being frank and honest with me. He kept me updated about the delay before my operation. Mr Arvinte was a good listener and showed concern for my welfare. Thank you Bedford Hospital Patient   |   25th April 2024  |
