Statement

I specialise in hip and knee replacement and revision surgery. I individualise treatment based on age and physical demands, offering minimally invasive surgery, keyhole surgery, unicompartmental (half) knee replacements and joint-sparing surgery in addition to total kneww replacements. My passion lies in pain management after knee replacements allowing patients to walk within weeks of surgery. I also treat complex fractures, again with minimally invasive stable fixation allowing specific groups like the elderly to walk the day after surgery for hip fracture.

  • My mother at the age of 90 years, has had her knee replacement surgery under the care of Dr. Siva. My family is very pleased with his professionalism, clinical expertise and most importantly his care and concern .Dr Siva takes time to fully explain his treatment plan to my mother and family and as a result gain our confidence and trust. We would like to thank him for helping to improve the quality of life of my mother who is now pain free and able to enjoy more community outings. We highly recommend him as a doctor of choice.

  • I am polio handicapped from my Right lower limp but what is causing me agony is my Left hip, my dependent leg. If the surgery is not successful than I will be on a wheel chair for life. I consulted a few Orthopedic surgeon before I met Dr Siva. Dr Siva studied my case than gave me explicit information, what are my expectations & the best implant suitable for my condition. Dr Siva gave me confidence. I also found him to be a knowledgeable & ethical surgeon. Glad to say, Dr Siva did not disappoint me, he did a wonderful job and I am now able to walk without pain. My recovery was surprisingly pain free. Rehabilitation is slow but that is because Dr. Siva is being extra cautious with me due to my polio leg .Having a good & caring surgeon is winning half the battle but you also need to be discipline and follow Dr. Siva & your physiotherapy’s instruction to the letter otherwise all their good efforts will go to waste. I strongly recommend this operation to those who are in constant pain. My quality of life is fantastic and I will always be grateful to Dr Siva.
