    Mr White has performed a totally satisfactory reverse shoulder replacement for me. He combines a trusting professional manner with a down to earth delivery of information, perfectly appropriate to my particular operation. Prior to my surgery, I was in constant acute discomfort & severe pain, resulting in substantial limited use of my arm & shoulder. 14 months post procedure, I am blessed with a very functional shoulder & the previous pain is a distant memory. I count myself as very fortunate to have been treated so successfully, by such a skilled surgeon, Mr James White.

    Elbow Replacement
    Dr White took time to understand my concerns regarding a elbow replacement and talked through the procedure and explained the recovery process and limitations I would need to take into consideration. The operation was a success and although I had a significant swelling on my left arm post operative, Mr White and colleagues where there to reassure me that all was fine and the swelling duly reduced. My follow appointment on the telephone was comprehensive and the result of my elbow replacement is excellent. I have gained full range of movement and I am very thankful to Mr White for a very successful procedure.

    Further to a bicycle accident I had in May 2020, I required elbow surgery and underwent a right radial head + ular fixation under the expert care of Mr W James White. I am not medical professional but can confirm that the injury I sustained was somewhat bad and that there was a risk that I may not regain full functionality of my right arm. Before my operation, Mr White took time to explain what he planned to do and what was his ultimate objective during surgery. Fast forward, 4.5 hours of surgery time, Mr White came to see me in my hospital room, obviously checked if I was ok, advised me that surgery when exceptionally well and what to do before my scheduled appointment to see him in 10 days’ time. Furthermore, the next morning two of his team members came to see me, reiterated what Mr White had told me post-surgery the previous day and echoed how successful the operation had been. At my 10 day follow up appointment with Mr White, only then I was able to appreciate the full extent of my injury and subsequently magnitude of miracle he had performance - complete masterpiece. He also explained, to get close to full functionality what will be required and equally it was going to take time. Throughout my rehabilitation, whenever my physiotherapist had any questions for Mr White in order expedite my rehab (where possible and safe to do so), Mr White always promptly responded with fail. You will not be surprised to hear that under the proficient care of Mr White, in less the 6 months since having surgery, I have made a full recovery in terms of extension, flexion, mobility and functionality. I am back in the gym, boxing, playing golf all subject to covid restrictions. In the politest possible way, I hope I never have to see Mr White in his professional capacity gain, I was very fortunate to have Mr White my Orthopaedic Surgeon and cannot thank him enough for ultimately saving my arm, you are a true superhero in my mind. Best Wishes
