I cannot express my gratitude for your kindness in fitting my husband into your busy schedule. It is not often in this busy world of ours that someone shows such kindness and selflessness. I know it was at the end of your day and delayed your return to your family. Thank you for your time, expertise and advice. We really appreciate it. God Bless.


This is a quick and long overdue note to express my appreciation for the two THRs you performed on me at Ashtead hospital. You will be pleased to know that I am now gliding smoothly along as if on castors! Thank you very much


To all the team, I would like to thank each and every one of you who looked after me with such excellent professional ease and very great kindness during my stay for a hip replacement. Everything has gone well since then. I am trotting about with a straight back and no pain. I can't tell you how grateful I feel. You are a wonderful team. Thank you again!!


Thank you once again for helping me and operating on my bad feet. As you know I am eternally grateful to you. Best wishes and many thanks xx


Dear Mr Cobb and team - I would like to say a big thank you for your wonderful service, I feel so privileged to have had such a caring team to replace my hip. I am very pleased to say I am recovering very well indeed, without pain! My walking has increased to just over a mile twice a day - without pain and using just one stick. Also, my exercises are much easier. Many thanks again :)


Dear Andrew, Many thanks to you and to your team for all of your work, undertaken in such a caring, friendly, but professional manner - and, of course, thank you so much for my new knee!


Dear Mr Cobb, Just like to say a big thank you for my 2nd hip surgery - I can say that after 2 years and I was so relieved to have closure now. At all times you have been there for me and as a recommendation, if your name ever comes up I have to say many good things about you. What a good hospital Ashtead is. Thank you to all.


Dear Mr Cobb, Thank you so much for all your hard work. The difference you make to people's lives is so amazing, never think of giving up, please without people like you doing what you do, it would be a sad world indeed. Thank you again from our hearts.


Dear Mr Cobb, You probably didn't realise on Wednesday just how grateful I am to you for the marvellous piece of surgery you performed on my hip replacement. I am walking better now than I have for several years. I can't thank you enough for the new lease of life you have given me and for the opportunity at this late time of my life. Thank you very much!!


Dear Mr Cobb, Just a few lines to thank you very much for operating on me for a hip replacement, so successfully. I very much appreciated your skill and professional approach and I am pleased to inform you that all is progressing well. My physiotherapist is pleased with my progress and I am doing the exercises which you have recommended. She also says that she has never seen such a small, neat scar on a hip replacement before! Once more, my thanks to you for giving me a new lease of life. With best wishes.
