Mr Barksfield replaced both my left and right hips this year. His pre operative consultation was very thorough and informative. Following surgery he visited and checked on my progress every day whilst I was in hospital which was wonderful. Every question I had was answered in an honest and straightforward manner and I felt very confident and supported throughout the whole experience. My wounds healed perfectly, the scars are very neat and I have no pain , which is an amazing feeling! Thank you Mr Barksfield and your team for everything.
