I had a cripplingly painful deviated distal phalange (bent toe). It was operated on in January this year. It's now May and I have resumed my 5k running activities, Zumba dancing, badminton, rollerblading and hill walking. My son says incredulously "You can walk normally". He no doubt thought I was crippled for life.
Jesus said to the lame man "Take up thine bed and walk". In my case it was an orthopaedic surgeon with the help of an anaesthetist and nurses at the BMI hospital Aberdeen. Miraculous!
I would highly recommend Mr Steven Hamilton after full knee replacement surgery on both knees. He kept me informed at all times before during and after surgery. I was discharged on the 15th April 2019 after completing surgery with no problems at all on each knee. I have nothing but praise for Mr Steven Hamilton and his staff at Albyn Hospital Aberdeen.
From our first consultation to the physiological aftercare package, its been an amazing experience. Mr Hamilton made me feel relaxed about the surgery I needed, never once pushing me into agreeing to have it done. the facts were clear and I feel if it may have been an alternative chat with someone else I may not have proceeded so soon. He's been professional,informative and kind throughout, which had made this whole procedure so much easier for me to take in and understand. His team supporting him are also in need of a mention as they also made the operation and aftercare so much more easier than I could of imagined.
Mr Hamilton has reassured me that I can come back at any time with any concerns and questions with his open door attitude.
Mr Hamilton has a very calm, thorough manner and took time to explain what my procedure options were. His post procedure care was excellent.
Mr. Hamilton has operated / installed uni-compartmental oxford knee prostheses on both my knees within a period of eighteen months between 2016 to 2018. I have felt fully at ease throughout my dealings with Mr. Hamilton from early consultation, thought the procedure and in the aftercare. Both operations have been successful and have restored my knees to a very high degree of mobility. Mr Hamilton has an easy and calming way of communication and has installed in me a high level of trust in his being the right surgeon for my knee replacements. I was glad that he was the surgeon to performa also the second procedure. Hence, I am happy to recommend Mr. Hamilton to anyone who would care to listen.
Steven has been professional throughout and has explained everything in comprehensible terms .. Further, he has done everything with a reassuring smile on his face
An excellent hip replacement performed by a truly professional surgeon and his team.
From the first consultation I had which I was quite nervous about, Dr Hamilton reassured me and made me feel at ease about the situation and procedure I was due to be having. He was always helpful and informative in consultations whether it was pre or post op. I would highly recommend Dr Hamilton to anyone. I greatly appreciate everything that was done for me. 10/10 in all areas.
I am a 74 year old male who has just had two full knee replacement operations by Mr Hamilton just three months apart. The outcome and my recovery could not be better, he is clearly a most excellent surgeon. At all times before and after the operations he went to great lengths to explain everything and answer the daftest of questions. I cannot recommend him highly enough. In my view, his patients are very fortunate to have him as ther consultant.
Mr Hamilton carried out a complete knee replacement for me after discussing the options available to me and trying to give me some relief with an injection. He answered all my questions about the procedure clearly and was reassuring about the use of an epidural The work the physio team carried out under his direction meant that I was able to be discharged four days after the operation and have continued to make progress since. In all my conversations with him he was always positive and encouraging about the progress I was making which helped me in my recovery.
Total hip replacement on 1st March 2017. I found Mr Hamilton and his team to be extremely thorough in all aspects of my treatment, keeping me thoroughly informed at every stage. The operation was very successful
Mr Hamilton is a consummate professional. He has an excellent bedside manner, is very approachable and happy to answer any questions you may have. He successfully operated on my knee with a partial knee replacement after spending months in a knee brace and crutches.
