    Mr White was kind enough to come in on his day off to do my surgery the day after I broke my arm which allowed my to have a functional arm last week for my graduation ceremony to which I am beyond grateful. When I met him on the day of surgery he was very thoughtful and thorough with his explanations and making sure I was comfortable and not startled. Post surgery I have been told many times that my healing process has been very well - many thanks to Mr White for doing such a great surgical procedure!

    Mr. White worked extra hard to give me a better outcome for my surgery and made sure the pain I experienced was minimal. This meant a lot to me. I’ve now recovered full function of my left arm and with no pain, which is not something I’ve had in the past five years. While the pain was not strong, my quality of life improved very substantially and I now have much better concentration and focus, in everything I do.

    Wrist Fractures
    I had an excellent experience with Doctor White, and am very happy with the surgical procedure to my wrist that he undertook. I was given a balanced view of what the injury consisted of before surgery, and what the process was to repair the damage. Although the bone needed re-setting after the first attempt, I was glad that this decision was taken since the outcome was very satisfactory. Communications with me were clear and unambiguous, so, whilst I was worried at the time of the accident, I knew I was in good hands with this surgeon. The operation was relatively complex due to the nature of the breakage but it has been treated very well indeed.
