Miss Fitzgerald is very personable and empathetic, and above all a great specialist. She made sure my treatment was detailed and very well managed, even during the pandemic a call with her was very helpful. I would recommend her to anyone.

I found miss Claire Fitzgerald a very pleasant person. She took her time to explain things and she was very approachable. Very professional and caring from beginning to end of my care with her. I was very lucky to have been under her care . Would definitely rate her expertise 5 stars.

Claire and her team are exceptional. I was unfortunately not a normal case having previously had a shoulder op which after a mountainbike crash was made redundant and meant I was back to square one. Claire performed a Laterjet procedure (graft on the shoulder bone) to help increase the shoulder stability. I am now a full 12 months down the line and life is better than before the first operation - I am mountainbiking harder than ever amongst everything else we hoped I would return to post op with the right rehabilitation. Claire has always been responsive to my millions of questions and her administration team are an absolute pleasure to deal with and truly went the extra mile with me to ensure I got the earliest appointment to see them and have my op. I couldn't recommend her enough and if I ever need another op (touch wood) she will be the first person I call!

I first met with Miss Fitzgerald in February 2019 after having suffered a full rupture of my left distal bicep tendon following an accident on the gymnastics rings. Miss Fitzgerald diagnosed the tear almost immediately and then listened attentively, addressing and answering all the many questions and concerns I had, thoroughly. I knew I had met with the surgeon that would provide the best possible options for my particular situation. At no point did I feel pressurised into undergoing one method of treatment over the other. I was presented with clear facts regarding both the surgical and conservative approaches, and following a short period of reflection, made the decision to have the tendon surgically repaired. The surgery took place at the London Bridge Hospital where I was provided with an excellent level of care by all practitioners involved in the procedure. Miss Fitzgerald and I have had several follow up appointments since the surgery and she has monitored the progress of my recovery throughout. Upon my final review 5.5 months following the operation, I was pleased to inform her that I had regained almost full strength in my left arm, had no mobility limitations and that my training regime was back in full swing. I firmly believe that this is down to the outstanding treatment plan that Miss Fitzgerald set out for me from day 1. I have spoken with several other individuals who have suffered a similar injury and needed 8 months - 1 year to regain full range of motion and still struggle with pulling and pushing movements such as ‘pull-ups’ and ‘push press.’ It was so important for me to get my training back on track as quickly and safely as possible, so I can’t thank her enough for this. Update as of 6.7.20- Regained full strength in left arm. Nerve discomfort dissipated almost completely one year following surgery and am back competing as an CrossFit/ Calisthenics athlete.
