Absolutely brilliant after having calcium build up on my elbow joint I was referred to Mr Vollans who from day one took his time to explain every detail of my condition and the procedure to follow on the day of my op Mr Vollans explained what was going to happen and in his words “don’t worry I will be treating you as if you were a member of my own family” which gave myself and my wife a lot of assurance can’t thank him enough
Patient seen for:Shoulder & Elbow Surgery
After being in pain for so long I now feel there is hope after my first consultation. Sam Vollance is such a nice down to earth man.
After a fall which resulted in a broken upper arm, I visited Mr Vollans on several occasions following a recommendation from a consultant colleague of his.
Mr Vollans was very professional at all times in his treatment of me and my condition. He was also very knowledgeable and decisive which instilled me with confidence.
My trust in his advice is now paying dividends as I have not required any surgery and my bones are in alignment and are starting to heal.
He was also able to recommend an experienced specialist physiotherapist who is now helping me to regain movement in my arm.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Mr Vollans and feel I have a special insight into his qualities as a doctor after having spent 42 years as a qualified nurse and also having had several spells of time as a patient in hospital myself in the past.
A very caring and understanding, willing to explain every option available and all waiting for a positive outcome
From the consultation the day after being knocked of my bike, Mr Vollans was very clear and concise in describing what had happened and what my options where.
The surgery has gone very well and my post surgery consultations have been informative and helpful.
Mr Vollans’ manner has always been really friendly and helped put me at ease post accident
Professional and very knowledgeable.
Once again Mr Vollans has surpassed my expectations regarding my treatment time within the NHS. He said I would be dealt with, within 10 weeks and he has kept his promise.
Very good with shoulder injury caused by skiing. Clearly highlighted the options and way forward
Sam has given me every confidence in his ability to do the correct procedure for my situation.
He is very welcoming and very professional. He didn't make me feel pressured or uncomfortable at any time. I felt he was very honest in what could be done and not. He left it up to me to decide if I wanted to have any procedure done and not pressured into having anything done that was not needed or unnecessary.
Excellent service and after care

Following surgery performed by Mr Sam Vollans at the LGI, I have also had a follow-up consultation with him at the Nuffield Hospital in Leeds, in relation to a right Olecranon fracture. From being greeted by Mr Vollans immediately pre-surgery, I had complete confidence in the way I was treated and that I was in 'safe hands'. The post operative consultation was even more reassuring with information being provided regarding the procedure undertaken, recovery and post operative time-frames etc. Mr Vollans promptly arranged further x-rays and gave advice regarding immediate physiotherapy.
He is a true gentleman, who has his patient's well-being at heart. I was greatly appreciative of the care, concern and reassurance provided - all with a friendly and approachable manner. I would recommend Mr Sam Vollans most highly.
