Professor Lee said he was happy with the op. My legs properly hurt for 2 days, but then that went away. I can get a 90 degree bend on both knees, with my left being a bit slower than the right. The physiolab machine is making a massive difference. I just feel really happy with everything, Professor is awesome, his team and all the staff at Lincoln BMI were great. Everything is positive.

I damaged the cartilage (meniscus) in my right knee some years ago whilst cycling and managed the condition successfully. I decided not to have it operated on expecting that medical advances would take place in the ensuing decades but knew that one day it would become troublesome. In December 2018 I decided that treatment was required; I sought NHS care and was given an appointment but the timescales were far to long. I sought private health care (I do not have medical insurance) and found Professor Paul Lee from reading the consultant profiles on the private provider's website. I saw Paul who is professional, cheerful, positive and pragmatic in his consultation and delivery. I had my procedure only a few weeks after my first consultation. I was up and about immediately and cycling again shortly after. I am particularly impressed by the tiny marks left by the surgery; I think in a few months it will be very hard to tell that I had the procedure. My whole experience was excellent; in particular I found Paul personable and a complete pleasure to deal with. He explained things clearly in layman's terms. I feel fortunate to have chosen Paul. I would have no hesitation in recommending Professor Paul Lee for this type of condition.

Professor Paul Lee

Thank you for your kind feedback. I am very pleased to hear how well you are doing following your surgery, especially that you are back to your cycling.

Professor Lee is without doubt the best surgeon that I have ever dealt with. From my initial consultation, follow up appointments through to my operation and after care he was fantastic. Prof Lee gave me the best possible service and always made me feel like I was the only case he was working on. He was very organised, and coordinated everything that needed to be done, often having members of his team contact me to give me updates. The operation itself resulted in an unbelievably small and neat scar, with no stitches / staples which I had never experienced (total right knee revision), and the post operative pain, swelling and bruising was much, much less than I had anticipated or experienced before. Should I ever need anyone work done on my knee, i would only want to be seen by The Prof!

This is a belated letter of thanks to you for doing such a good jon replacing my left knee on June 18. I was glad when you said afterwards that it had been less difficult than you had anticipated as I had delayed the operation for far too long. I am now able to walk well again for at least three quarters of an hour and no longer need to use a stick.I was able to return to a twice a week gentle exercise class several weeks ago and have had far less anticipated.

May I take this opportunity express my sincere appreciation for the professionaliam of Prof' Paul Lee and his team. The treatment, advice and support I have, and continue to receive is superb. I have always enjoyed a very active life, both through many sports, pass times and up to and since my retirement from The Fire Service. I had a fall skiing 3 years ago and my right knee has gradually become more painful, to the point where by summer 2017, I could barely walk any distance or swim without severe pain. I was making regular use of rub-in and oral painkillers. My GP referred me to see an Orthopaedic Consultant. I had a MRI scan followed up by a consultation by Prof' Paul Lee. My scan result was thoroughly explained by him, including that I had OA (Osteoarthritis) and a torn meniscus. Subsequently a knee replacement may be an option, but not necessarily for now. An Ossur Unloader One knee brace was discussed as an alternative therapy in conjuction with some lifestyle changes that could help, including exercises, turbo-trainer cycling and weight loss, thus having a direct effect on my knee strain whilst standing-up from the sitting position. I was promptly called back for instructional training and a brace to be fitted. Within 3 months I was on a WALKING holiday on the ski slopes in the Italian Alps wearing the Ossur Unloader One brace on my right leg from getting up until going to bed, with NO adverse or negative effects at all. My use of rub-in and oral painkillers is now reduced to ZERO !! 13 months on, wearing the brace is now as much a part of my life as putting on my socks and wearing my glasses with no hassle yet many, many benefits. Through further advice from Prof' Lee and my acquisition of a Cartilage Rebound Brace by Ossur, I now have the opportunity to retry gently skiing with my Family again, which is my true passion in life and a pleasure I thought was gone forever. Once again thank you to Prof' Paul Lee and all his team for giving me a great quality of life back and for all the future opportunities and activities I may be able to participate in. Keep up the good work
