As a patient in a lot of pain, it was actually a relief to be told “bad news” when that news was that there is a very real physical explanation for the years of knee pain and the inability to walk, especially when qualified with the very comforting statement that “the good news” is that the problem can be fixed. With two knees now “fixed” simultaneously, thanks to Matt Dawson, my only regret is that I did not consult him earlier. From the very first consultation throughout the whole process, I felt I was being treated by someone very knowledgeable but also very caring. I was amazed at how quickly he completed the procedures but also how much time he was prepared to spend explaining and reassuring. I have already recommended Matt Dawson to others and will continue to do so.

I am delighted to be able to confirm that my full left knee replacement carried out by Mr. Mathew Dawson in December 2019 has been a complete success in every way. Following a most informative and helpful initial consultation, my operation proceeded in a timely manner to an early recovery, enabling me to return to a busy outdoor life such as I have been unable to follow for many years.

Mr Dawson was extremely professional but equally, very easy to talk to about what was to happen and what problems might occur. My knee replacement was entirely successful but the patient needs to play their part in the procedure by doing as they are told and particularly in exercising the replacement part!

I am very grateful to Matthew Dawson for his expert patient manner and surgical skills. Throughout my patient journey, I had no doubt that I was in good hands, as he adopted a person-centered approach to my injury, which is greatly appreciated as a semi-professional athlete. Matthew Dawson ensured that I was well informed and prepared for the surgical procedure and post-operative rehabilitation which has greatly facilitated my recovery.

Matt is generous with his time and keen that his patients are able to make informed decisions. I felt fully informed and listened to. All my questions were answered and I felt guided in the decisions that needed to be made. Any worries were quickly dispelled. Matt has a very open and honest approach. I knew he genuinely cared for my long term well being. I was certainly not just another number / commodity. I will need my other knee replacing in the future and Matt will be who I choose. As I am a little young for a knee replacement, Matt spent time exploring every option with me and demonstrated true integrity and professionalism. Detailed follow up care has ensured a speedy and effective recovery.

Explanation

From first visit to having both knees replaced was one week. From that first consultation to being released, everything was explained in full with every possible option, action, reaction etc carefully discussed and explained to me. The knowledge, confidence and experience of Mr Dawson set every possible worry I had to rest and I went into the procedure completely relaxed, unworried and full of confidence in the result. Because I had both knees replaced at the same time the operation itself was about 4.5 hours long but throughout the whole time Mr Dawson and the anaesthetist chatted to me explaining what was happening ( when I wasn’t having a little snooze) and the time literally flew. After the operation the follow up care by Mr Dawson and the hospital staff was exemplary indeed 10 hours after being taken to ward I was up out of bed walking ( albeit very slowly and wobbly), but this improved rapidly in the following two days with the care and tension I received. I left hospital on the third day, on crutches, which considering the procedure was much quicker than expected. At home I was walking on one crutch within three days and within the first week of getting home I was walking one mile a day on only one crutch. Again this was admittedly slowly but the confidence gained from being able to do it was immense. The aftercare notes re exercises etc that I needed to do was extremely comprehensive and I followed to the letter. Within three months I was walking at least 7 miles per day and now 9 months later I am back walking the Fells in the Lake District where I live with no consideration given to the distance or terrain when planning my walks. Having take early retirement to allow me to enjoy my passions of walking the hills with my dog and beach fishing and then having those so severely curtailed by my damaged knees I cannot thank Mr Dawson and his staff enough for their efforts to give me back my full active life. I have absolutely no hesitation in giving my full endorsement of Mr Dawson’s skills should you be considering a similar procedure.
