My little boy had been suffering with persistent ear infections since he was 3 months old. After misdiagnosis from GPs and multiple oral antibiotics his condition was giving him fever and sickness through infection. After months of watching him suffer we decided to search for a consultant that specialises in this area and found Professor Bruce. Professor Bruce instantly diagnosed the problem and resolved his issues within weeks of the initial consultation, it would have been within 2 weeks but due to hospital regulations we had to wait until his first birthday to operate. I highly recommend Professor Bruce if you have a young child with ear related issues he is the best doctor we have seen by far across a few private hospitals and his knowledge and bedside manner is fantastic. A very happy patient as my son can now hear perfectly and is developing speech at a much faster rate!

This is the third time we have dealt with Professor Iain Bruce and the service was exemplary. He has carried out minor operations on both of our children for tongue tie and more recently undertaken a tonsillectomy on our 4-year-old. Oskar was sitting in bed eating his tea couple of hours after the operation. Professor Bruce went out of his way to pop his head in the room and check on Oskar a couple of time before we left hospital. I could not recommend him more.

Professor Bruce operated on my 10 year old son Marcus a couple of weeks ago and I can honestly say from start to finish he was brilliant. On the initial consultant he made my son and us feel at ease. He explained everything to us thoroughly, he was professional but friendly at the same time. On the day of the procedure he came to see us and again made Marcus feel at ease, even when we went to theatre his manner was lovely . After the procedure he came to see us a couple of times, he explained everything in detail to Marcus and even said we could contact him over the weekend should we need him. I would highly recommend Professor Bruce and his team, his p.a Joe was so helpful she made sure that everything ran smoothly for us. She even came to say hello to us just before the procedure. Even the pre op assessment was so friendly and professional at the same time thanks to Carmel one of the nurses at the Spire Manchester. She even came to check on my son when we went for his follow up appointment. I would like to sincerely thank Professor Bruce and his team

As parents, our experience of Professor Iain Bruce was exemplary. Professor Bruce was an excellent communicator with us, both most importantly with our son. He performed a tonsillectomy for our son, which from initial consultation, admission, surgery, to our final consultation was incredible. We felt reassured to be in great hands, safe and informed. Our son, really liked Professor Bruce, they had real fun together. He felt he could ask him anything, and he did. Our pre-op check was highly competently delivered, the team on the day of surgery, especially the nurses and the anaesthetist were brilliant. We are really happy to recommend Professor Bruce. He was recommended to us, and now we know why. Surgery is a big decision for parents, so do this with only the best surgeon.

Professor Bruce has treated my son in 2015 and daughter in 2019 , both times Mr Bruce has been empathetic and informative giving us time to think about our options. Professor Bruce is excellent with children and made both my son and daughter feel comfortable and instilled confidence in us in what was an extremely anxious time.
