On June 4th 2003 at about 10.30am my wife Rita fell down stairs and broke her neck paralysing her. She was taken to Coventry and Warwickshire hospital where they took several x-rays. The next morning my wife was transferred to Walsgrave Hospital for an MRI scan that's where I met Mr Choksey who decided to admit my wife to C 5 ward to oversee her care. Mr Choksey decided to operate on my wife when the spinal cord swelling had reduced which he carried out12days later. He removed the damaged disc from the spinal cord and a bone grraft then fitted a halo to prevent her moving her head and thereby causing permanent paralasys. My wife was told by Mr Choksey that she would walk after she regained her ability to move and learn to walk with the help of the physios. My wife was able to walk after being taught to and left hospital after 73 days and improved as she was determined to regain her life back.

On 12th .June 2014 my wife had a stroke after her new hip dislocated and I met Mr Choksey again who told me he would be operating immediately or else she would die. Mr Choksey told me he had a good team to help and I must sign the consent  form for the operation to go ahead. The operation was about 7hours so the hospital contacted my son to come to the hospital for me and then told us to go home and call later to see if we could see my wife after her operation. The operation took about 7hours 2 of our other children had arrived so we all went to the hospital to see my wife in intesive care. The day after the operation Mr Choksey came to I C U to see my wife and see how well she would be afterwards when she came out of the hospital. He said in his opinion she would walk out of the hospital she is working at regaining her balance as the stroke affected that part of her brain. I can only say thank you  for saving her life a second time.

Many thanks - Robert Ayres

In January 2009 I fell from a ladder which slipped from under me. I was rushed to hospital where I was told the bad news “I had broken my back”. The only good news was that I had no evidence of nerve injury.

I was visited by Mr Choksey, who explained my injury and the possible options open to me. The first option, to treat my injury conservatively, would have meant a long period in bed and even longer in a body brace whilst it was hoped my vertebrae would fuse together. However there was a risk that the fractured vertebra would be too unstable. I said to Mr Choksey that all I wanted was my life back to normal and if there was a surgical option open to me then I wanted to take it. I remember the compassion Mr Choksey showed me and when he said that he would discuss this option with his team I knew it was the route I wanted to pursue, if it was offered to me, even if it meant several major surgical procedures. After discussing the case, their opinion was that the fractured vertebra was too unstable for conservative treatment and they supported the surgical option. I never thought that I would have been so pleased to be told I could have an operation. I recall having no reservations at all and totally trusted Mr Choksey even though there were risks. He inspired so much confidence and was prepared to trust me to do my part in the recovery. Under Mr Choksey, over the next few weeks, I underwent two major procedures. The first was to remove the shattered debris and fit titanium support rods to stabilise the spine. The second, performed via my abdomen was to insert a titanium implant to replace the shattered vertebra. In both cases I was walking and out of hospital in days and already putting everything I could into recovering my muscle tone and returning to normal activities. Both of these operations were an outstanding success due to his skill and commitment. During our conversations over this period Mr Choksey mentioned the possibility, if all went well, of removing some of the titanium that was initially fitted during the first operation. This he believed would enable me to regain some of the articulation of my spine. I held on to the belief that this should be my target. During the consultation following my second operation I raised the question of removing some of the titanium and after reviewing my scans he agreed to go ahead with it if I was keen to proceed. Such was my complete trust in both his skill and judgement that I jumped at the potential opportunity to improve my quality of life further.

In testimony to Mr Choksey’s knowledge, skill and dedication I can say that within two years of the accident, following three major procedures I had made a complete return to a normal life without any discomfort whatsoever. I still pursue a full recreational existence and such is the completeness of my recovery that I sometimes have to remind myself that the accident occurred at all.

Mr Munchi Choksey, you gave me what I asked for, thank you sincerely for your support, knowledge, skill, compassion and friendship. Please pass on my thanks to your support team who also made this possible. I also wish to thank Mr Choksey’s secretary, Lynn Smith who was so friendly and helpful to my family and I at a difficult time.

Following my recent Knee Surgery by Mr. J. Waite he, became very much aware of the intense pain I was in down my Left Leg and back. This gave me problems  walking (Mr Waite) sent me for an immediate MRI and Scan, upon reciept he said he would like Mr. Choksey to have a look at the scan for him to give me an accurate assessment of the problem at  this point I had not heard of Mr. Choksey.

An appointment was made and I met Mr Choksey, I found him to be very much to the point but a very deep understanding of my problem including the source and direction of the pain. He said the pain was caused by a cyst in the spine, I underwent surgery 30/03/2010 and I have absolutely no regrets and would firmly recomend Mr Munchi to anyone with similar problems in fact I have but ,this time to my sister whose son has significant pain  in walking to see if he can help I can only say I  feel very proud to have met this man.

I close offering Mr Choksey my very grateful thanks and all the luck to him for the future

My sincere regards to Mr Choksey.

Over the past three years I have been experiencing  increasingly frequent episodes of severe lower back pain, which I assumed was connected to previous surgery I had twenty years ago to fuse vertebrae in my lower back. It was beginning to affect my quality of life, but in January of this year, I slipped on Ice, landing heavily on my rear. Over the next few months I was in constant pain and found sitting at a desk, or standing stationary for more than a few minutes resulted in periods of debilitating pain, which took days to subside. Consequently I was confined to an easy chair at home, condemned to daytime TV.

On visiting my GP, whom I consider to be a friend, he referred me to Mr Choksey with a glowing recommendation. However, although I trust my GP’s judgement implicitly, I decided to research Mr Choksey.

I would not be able to have my current lifestyle if it wasn’t for my neck operation with Mr Choksey in 2004.

At a time when I was very anxious about my surgery, Mr Choksey was consistently honest, open, kind and professional before and after my operation. He is quite simply the best at what he does and I feel very lucky to have him on my doorstep.

I would wholeheartedly recommend to anyone his care and expertise. Any patient can feel relaxed they are in safe hands.
