BY A VERIFIED PATIENT

08-05-2017
Eight weeks ago I underwent revision hip surgery by orthopaedic surgeon Mr Simon Mellor. My appreciation and thanks to Mr Mellor for his continual care, courtesy and patience in listening to and answering my many questions and his detailed explanation of the procedure prior to surgery. I am now on the way to once again having a functional hip.

Mr Simon Mellor

Many thanks for your kind words.
