It has been nearly 6 months since my knee replacement, finally my review!!... It has no way been down to recovery, I have just been so busy being able to do more!From word go it has been amazing! To have been up and standing on just that leg only, only a few hours after my operation was hard to believe! Straight away it was like my own knee and pain free all the way!! I even enjoyed the physio which I must stress is worth every minute to achieve and reach such great results It has given me a new lease of life and I cannot wait to have my other knee done now! Then hopefully I can even get back to playing some tennis again, which I miss.A huge big thank to you Dr Kerry Acton and your team for everything, who I had every confidence in from the very beginning and would highly recommend.

Mr Acton has a no nonse approach which I found very refreshing and reassuring. He fully explained what the operation entailed, the likely recovery perod and final outcome. In my case the outcome has been excellent. I have no hesitation in recommending Mr. Acton, who I feel is probably at the top end of his profession.

I felt very confident about my diagnosis from Mr Acton and the resulting treatment and care.My new hip has been a total success and the recovery time post operation was minimal. I am delighted. I was very disciplined about the exercises advised by the physiotherapist.

I had severe pain in my left hip and could not walk without a stick, and was referred to Mr Acton earlier this year.He advised me that a hip replacement would be the best course of action and I had this done in March. Mr Acton explained in detail what the replacement would entail and made me feel confident about the expected outcome. Throughout my stay in hospital Mr Acton and his team gave me excellent service. After the operation I was virtually pain free, with minimal scarring and I was able to go home after two nights in hospital. My recovery has gone well and on the occasions I have been back to Mr Acton for follow up appointments he has been very helpful in his advice on recovery. Now, six months later, I am able to carry on as normal, hardly knowing I have a hip replacement at all.

I had a consultation with Mr Acton regarding my left knee, which started to be a problem over four years ago, as always he explained everything very carefully and was anxious that I make the right decision with regard to not rushing into have a knee replacement but waited until I felt that it was becoming more of an issue and making day to day life tricky, advice which I very much appreciated
