I cannot thank you enough for taking the time to listen to me and understand my needs. My life has completely changed and I cannot thank you enough!


I wish to thank you for the excellent hip operations you carried out in February and May. Following both operations I had very little discomfort and the recovery from both was very quick. The care and kindness you showed me was brilliant, I cannot thank you enough!
