Mr Atkinson has remembered me and greeted me with warmth and friendliness each time I have visited. As someone who is anxious around medical issues and hospitals, this has meat a lot. He has always provided time for me to explain how I am feeling (never making me feel rushed) and has responded to the many questions I have had with kindness and understanding. He has been direct in his communication, which I have appreciated, and has provided information in such a way that has enabled me to understand. Regardless of the inherent consultant / patient power balance, he has always spoken to me as an equal, adopting the manner of a more knowledgeable friend. I feel grateful to Mr Atkinson for what he has done for me so far and secure in the knowledge that the door is open for me to return in the future if necessary.

Mr Atkinson was welcoming and informative at my first appointment and remained so throughout my treatment. My operation for reconnecting my broken Achilles Tendon was successful and my leg continues to improve. Mr Atkinson says it will be eighteen months before fully back to normal and I'm looking forward to that.

Mr Atkinson spoke to me as a person he listened to what I wanted and needed. As a woman with cerebral palsy affecting my right side, he told me exactly what was involved and what to expect after my operation. Mr Atkinson first saw me after a referral to Highgate Hospital and helped firstly by recommending an injection under ultrasound as that didn't work for as long as we hoped it should have Mr Atkinson offered a operation to clear out all the debris and after that offered a further injection unfortunately due to my disability and the constant pressure that my left leg had to take the only option was a complete left knee replacement . Mr Atkinson talked me through all the stages as and when they came up and offered me all the treatments and support that I needed before the inevitable complete left knee transplant. This was carried out at the North Middx Hospital where I was given the same excellent treatment and I had a complete knee replacement performed by Mr Atkinson who helped me every step of the way through a very traumatic time in my life. It was so nice to be treated and given time to talk and ask questions about what was going to happen and be talked through it and not rushed through appointments. I would like to say a massive Thank You for the kindness and sensitivity Mr Atkinson showed to me through my time with him both at Highgate Hospital and at the North Middx As a NHS patient at Highgate I was treated no differently by Mr Atkinson than at North Middx. He was honest when he told me how long I would have to wait for my operation. I can only say one last thing I was very lucky to be put under his care. Thank you again Mr Atkinson

I work within the medical profession and have worked with tonnes of surgeons within the NHS and private sector. My mother requires a hip replacement and I have chosen Mr Atkinson. His work has always stood out for me and patients always come away with successful results. At the consultation he was so lovely to my mum, he has a really nice way with patients. He was very welcoming, polite and thorough in his explanations. He made my very anxious mum feel at ease within minutes of talking to him and come away so happy and excited to see him again for her operation. Mr Atkinson is a true gentleman and is one the best surgeons I have ever worked with and I’m very happy I have chosen this surgeon for my mother.

I am a patient and I am also a GP. I do a lot of yoga and also go on walking holidays. I have seen Mr Atkinson both about a hammer toe and a cartilage tear in my knee. One episode was with the NHS and one privately. Mr Atkinson takes a good history and forms his own opinion but also listens to the concerns of the patient and does not try to push any particular course of action. He is enthusiastic and up to date and creative with ideas but always realistic and tailors advice according to the patient's situation and perspective. He is also very approachable, a good communicator and very helpful. He operated on my foot and my knee, both times efficiently and with successful outcomes. I have continued to do a lot of yoga and recently went on a 200 km mountain trek in Crete. I would highly recommend Mr Atkinson and I cannot make any suggestion for improvement

I have been suffering from Chronic Rheumatoid and Osteo Arthritis for several years I have been under Mr Atkinsons care sns supervision over this period His friendly welcoming manner and thorough simplistic explanation with all the various beneficial options and any coinciding risks has ensured that my Enthesopathies and Ankolysing Spondylitis has subsided dramatically. I also had a Knee Debridement and excision of the paratendon/fenestration six years ago with 100% improvement immediately. I would recommend him extremely highly and if surgery is advised on your lower limbs then please request Mr Atkinson to perform the procedure

Mr. Henry Atkinson & his team performed satisfactory Knee Replacement surgery on both of my Knees in April & August 2018. I was treated with respect, courtesy and care throughout the process from Pre-assessment to post operation consultation. He had carefully explained any risks and benefits of the procedure whilst reassuring me of a good outcome. His proffessionalism and engaging personality was evident and endorsed by members of my family who visited me and were impressed by his mannerism and the fact that Mr. Atkinson had come to double check up on my progress so late in the evening after the operation. I am 100% happy with his Services and have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone considering similar operations. Thank You very much Mr. Atkinson.

Henry Atkinson has been instrumental to my training. His depth of knowledge, clinical experience and surgical skills enable him to provide outstanding care to his patients. Very recently I seeked a medical opinion from Henry Atkinson for a sports injury and found the consultation thorough and informative. Through his sound advice and treatment plan I have been able to return to full sporting activity and couldn't be more grateful. One of the best in town
