Many patients have found it helpful to get through the pain by trying pain-relieving injections. Ostenil Plus is the leading hyaluronic acid injection that has been used safely for many years. Like steroids, it has an anti-inflammatory effect and so reduce pain. It is better than steroid injections as it does not damage tissue and has no risk of reducing immunity. So, there is no increased risk of infections, including COVID. Learn More

Mr Chauhan has been a consultant in trauma and orthopaedic surgery since 2002 with a focus on trauma, arthroscopic and joint replacement work mainly around the lower limb. He graduated from Dundee University & lectured in Sheffield University in Anatomy and Physiology. After completing basic surgical training there, Orthopaedic training commenced in Leeds followed by a fellowship at the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital in Birmingham. Arthroscopy and cartilage research was undertaken at Smith and Nephew’s Research Facility in York and University College London helped to validate the early imaging of cartilage and establish an arthroscopic service in Southend-on-Sea where he was appointed as a Consultant. During his time there he developed a minimally invasive approach to anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction making it possible to use a novel approach to hamstring ligament harvesting. Research interests included developing methods of treatment for cartilage damage. Mr Chauhan is described as a caring individual with his approach to patients and their needs using great attention to detail. These are qualities that keep patients giving the highest recommendation and are also seen in the approach to individualised teaching of Foundation, Core and Speciality Trainees as well as General Practitioner colleagues. Recently has won as part of a team at Southend Hospital an award for outstanding teaching.

I was suffering symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome for about two years and due to the lockdown I was unable to see a Doctor at my local practice until called for my annual review and explain my symptoms to her in February 2022. The receptionist refused to make an appointment face to face So I had a telephone consultation But eventually saw a Doctor in March 2022 who sai he would refer me to the Hospital. In the pat this has taken a few weeks and the Local hospital would contact me to offer me an appointment but the system had changed. So I eventually got a letter from NHS saying I had not made an appointment so I failed on line but manage to arrange an appointment with Mr Chauhan on 4th April at Southend Private Hospital for an assessment of my condition and he stated after thorough examination I needed an operation which he carried out on Friday 22nd July 2022. I couldn’t fault the service I had received from him and the hospital staff who were all very efficient and helpful and pleasant at all times The Hospital was spotlessly clean and sensitive to Covid with masks and sanitiser. On the whole it was very impressive

Mr Chauhan has been superb. I had a full ACL tear (left knee) and have been concerned that after 2 failed ACL reconstructions on my right knee (via a different consultant a few years ago) I would not regain full stability and strength in my left knee after surgery. The surgery went very well and Mr Chauhan also managed to save my cartilage after it had become folded. This was significant for me as I know first-hand the damage and pain that can be caused by failed/damaged cartilage and it’s been perfect (touch wood). Mr Chauhan was very strict with me to ensure I followed the recovery plan in order to better aid my recovery and although it’s only been 4 months, I haven’t had a single issue. I feel strong and I’ve gained strength and stability quickly in physio. I trust Mr Chauhan and will be speaking with him about my other ACL issues (right knee) to see if he can work his magic there too.

On my recent visit I was seen earlier than my appointment time, on previous occasions the clinic has run 2 hours behind. I can thoroughly recommend Mr. Chauhan, I have been a patient of his for about 18 months. He listens and gives excellent advice on how to help the problem. After a procedure on my knee, I can now work out without any pain and have even started to run again. I could not have done this with Mr. Chauhan help, advice and expertise.

I can now understand why sometimes he’s clinic run behind, it is because he helps and cares about he’s patients.

My experience from the first meeting with Dr Chauhan put me at ease, such a kind pleasant understanding Doctor. Since having both my hands treated by Dr Chauhan I can’t praise him enough he really has changed my life as I’m no longer in pain. The after care was great from him and all his team nothing was too much trouble and I was always made to feel comfortable and the scares are so tidy. Anyone I talk to and has asked me about my hands I smile and praise Dr Chauhan. Thank you once again you and your staff where amazing x

Mr Chauhan explained the procedure clearly and answered my questions patiently and with great humour. I have been impressed by the speed of my assessment and tests arranged and by the way in which I have been treated, both in terms of waiting times and with courtesy.

I have recently had a total hip replacement – met Mr. Chauhan for a consultation, immediately before he operated and today at the follow up clinic. He listens to you and is very reassuring and the best thing is that beforehand I could hardly walk and now can walk pain free . Thank you to you and your staff at Southend hospital.
