A very good experience, it was always clear what was happening and what the next steps would be.
Am just updating from a previous review.
Complete knee replacement (uncemented, I’m only 43) 20.12.18 and winning medals at the British Masters Swimming Championship 2019 (silver in the 200m Butterfly) .
Perhaps the best bit is though, that I did this without any painkillers.
Recovery has been a hard and sometimes frustrating slog but worth it in every sense.
Would recommend this surgeon to anyone who wants a sensible approach to rehab and wants to be able to get back to sport pain free!
Mr Acton operated on my right knee in November 2018 with an excellent result .
I am 91 years of age , so carrying out such an operation must require more care than normal
The uncemented replacement hip has exceeded my hopes and expectations. I was signed off yesterday some seven months post-op. I was delighted with the speed of recovery and return of mobility in the days and weeks following surgery.
My daughter has seen Mr Acton with regard to two separate injuries. The first time with a wrist fracture and the second time with Osgood Schlatters and a sports injury to her knee. Mr Acton saw my daughter promptly on both occasions; very quickly and efficiently following up with the necessary x-rays and scans, follow-up consultation and advice. Mr Acton was very professional and friendly, explaining everything in a very clear way to both myself and my daughter, enabling her to make the quickest and best recovery. We would be very happy to recommend Mr Acton.
Mr Acton operated on my hip in January 2018. I feel I was extremely fortunate to have him recommended to me. In all my consultations with him I found him to be wholly professional and courteous. The surgery has been 100% successful and I would recommend Mr Acton wholeheartedly.
Mr Acton made me feel at ease after a arriving in a very stressful state. He listening intently to all my concerns. Never feeling rushed. A pleasure to see him again. Offering to help assist me, even though my issue is now out of his areas covered. A truly brilliant caring man.
Mr Acton performed a total knee replacement a couple of years ago which has been a complete success. He is very approachable (unlike some consultants) and his care continues long after the operation itself. I had a total hip replacement some four years ago (carried out by another consultant in London) and when it dislocated last year he made the effort to visit me in The Royal Surrey to make sure I was OK. I will need another hip replacement at some time in the future and there is no doubt in my mind that Mr Acton is the man for the job. I have no reservations in recommending him
I have seen Kerry Acton several times over the past 10 years for problems with my right hip. He has always been very kind and attentive, taking time to listen to all my appointment notes and any questions or concerns I may have. Post xrays he has always taken the time to explain what it is showing and then offering advice re the way forward and if there are possible options or not. I have recommended Kerry Acton to my friends and the ones that have had appointments with him also feel the same as me.
I have had two total hip replacements with Mr Acton within the space of six years. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him for his professionalism and dedication to ensure I was looked after from the start of the process right through to the end. I am now totally pain free and able to live my life as I did before.
Mr Acton has replaced both my hips. He is a very approachable, extremely talented surgeon. He expects excellence from himself and from his team. He always instilled a huge amount of confidence in me so that I never worried about either operation. He's the best in my opinion and thank him so much for his care.
I have seen Mr Acton with my teenaged son in relation to two separate rugby injuries. In fact we were seen at only a few hours' notice for the second injury, which was hugely appreciated. Mr Acton is business-like yet pleasant and friendly. His injury diagnosis on both occasions was clear, to the point and matter of fact - in particular he was good at explaining things in layman's terms to a teenager. His post-injury advice was comprehensive and he didn't request unnecessary follow up consultations. I would happily recommend and would definitely return to Mr Acton in the event of any future sporting injuries.
I would personally like to thank Mr. Acton for the successful total right hip operation he performed on me in July 2017. He is a charming man and I very much appreciated his honest and direct approach together with his expectations of a full recovery. I followed his instructions regarding physio/exercise and in doing so, was walking only with a stick within a week. I continued with the exercises at home and by six weeks was walking a mile. The arthritic pain disappeared immediately after the operation and my mobility has vastly improved. I am now walking five miles a day. I would highly recommend Mr. Acton who is an excellent surgeon.
Mr Kerry Acton replaced my right hip on 8th January 2018 at Mt Alvernia Hospital. I saw him four times after the Operation. I cannot commend him high enough for the operation and the reassuring aftercare he showed to me.
From the first meeting I felt we had made the right decision to go to Mr Acton, The operation went well & the after care has been amazing. Many Thanks
I am full of praise for Mr Acton's skill and care and cannot thank him enough for giving me a new lease of life
First class, helpful and considerate.
Following her hip operation my Mother has nothing but praise for Mr Acton.
Excellent. Very successful. Small scar. Wonderful to be without that terrible hip pain.
I have had 2 hip replacements with Mr Acton. Both hips have been very successful for me. My care with both replacements was super efficient and caring, all questions answered. It is great to be running round a tennis court again. Thank you.
Great advice and support from my skiing accident
Uncemented knee replacement and back in the pool at 3 weeks. 9 weeks in no painkillers, best move I ever made. Thanks Mr Acton! Good job. Whole process efficient and compassionate.
