The working philosophy of Orthopaedic Consultant Joyti Saksena encompasses several different key aspects of medicine. These include a focus on the importance of preventing as well as repairing joint damage, preserving rather than replacing joints when possible, an emphasis on working towards improving the experience of patients who undergo joint surgery, and a firm belief in the value of continuing education and training.
In service of this philosophy, Mr. Saksena performs procedures that help prevent damage to the hip and knee joints, as well as those that replace joints that are beyond repair. His research interests focus on improving the outcome of the surgical procedures he performs, and on improving the patient experience both before and after surgery. He has a particularly keen interest in performing procedures that prevent hip and knee damage in young patients, with the objective of preserving the joints to avoid the need for replacement.
Another core aspect of Mr. Saksena's philosophy is the importance of education, for himself as well as for the next generation of orthopaedic surgeons. In keeping with this, he serves as an educational director at Barnet & Chase Farm Hospitals, in which he oversees post-graduate medical training for hundreds of new doctors. He also devotes time to ensuring his own medical knowledge is up-to-date, and is eager to develop and adopt new innovations in his work. Mr. Saksena has also been involved in the development of several orthopaedic implants, and uses advanced computer-aided techniques to improve surgical outcomes for his patients.
I am writing to thanks you & your staff fro the wonderful work you did on my hip repllacement. It is so nice not to be in constant pain and it's enjoy able to go for a walk now & not dread it as before. I can't thank you + the staff at the cavell hospital enough.
After years of arthritic pain, steroid injections, physiotherapy and arthroscopy (which actually made things far worse)... I now feel like a new woman thanks to the knee surgery you performed last month - I have no doubt this is due in no small part to your skill as a surgeon. The wound healed quickly, recovery has been rapid, without any complications and the scar is neat and beautifully stitched!!
Having recently undergone a full left knee replacement I am 100% satisfied with everything Mr Saksena and his team at The Cavell provided. I was given plenty of advice both before and after my surgery, which was very reassuring. My recovery has been rapid with minimal pain and within 8 weeks I had full extension and 130 degree flexion back in the knee. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Mr Saksena as an orthopaedic surgeon.
I had a total knee replacement with Valgus Deformity 7 weeks ago, and this gave the surgeon extra work to do, I only have good things to say about this surgery and after care with all staff involved at Chase Farm Hospital, as in my experience I have heard a lot of good and bad things about this type of surgery, Well I can only say that if anyone has concerns about this please try not to worry it is worth while as it has given me a new lease of life to what I had before, and yes the first 2 weeks are the worse, but please do try your exercises, because as they say you only get the real benefit if you are prepared to do your bit. Thanks very much for my new lease of life yet again.
I was very fortunate to be referred to Mr Saksena as an NHS patient and was very impressed with the treatment and care provided by Mr Saksena and the whole team at Cavell Hospital. Once discharged, someone was always available to talk to you and an appointment was made immediately if you needed to see a nurse (which I did several times, due to a normal discharge from my wound). The entire staff were all friendly, cheerful and efficient. The scar is very neat and after 7 weeks I am walking well and just using a stick outdoors.
I would like to just sincerely thank you for the job you did on my knees, both of them. Before I had my knees replaced I was in constant pain, which had been the case for nearly 5 years. It was so bad that I often wondered what the use was in living! Now, nearly 2 years later, I feel I have my life back. I can now walk without pain and every single day, and I mean every single day, I walk the roads that I walked pre-operations and I remember the pain that I was in for every small distance I had to walk. Now, I walk with a smile on my face and a thrill in my heart, so very grateful for having the freedom to enjoy walking once again. I also have great fun going with the grandchildren to the park and playing with them, which before the operation was impossible as all I could do was basically sit and supervise them. So there too there is a huge change.
You did a total knee replacement on my right leg on 22nd March in the Kings Oak Hospital and it has been very successful. I am now almost pain free with the knee getting stronger each day. I would like to thank you and your excellent medical team for doing such a neat job. I would also like to thank the wonderful nurses at the hospital who were always cheerful and efficient.
In September 2014 I underwent a knee replacement operation. Mr Saksensa was an amiable professional with a calming influence and caring nature. His team were friendly and supportive. My knee replacement was a complete success and I am still enjoying my favourite sport of skiing.
You performed a partial meniscectomy at Highgate Hospital in late april. I would like to thank you for your hardwork; the problem has been entirely resolved and I am pretty sure that is down to the procedure rather than the passage of time as the condition persisted during the prior two months. Some part of that is surely down to your skill.
