“I just wanted to write to thankyou for changing my life! You replaced my hip at Epsom Hospital in March and now almost 4 months on, I am back to rowing, swimming, cyling, walking and I can sleep at night with no pain. I have been seeing a pysiotherapist and the regular exercises have helped my recovery enormously. So, thank you again for doing such a wonderful job, you said at the time that you would do something amazing for me, and you have certainly done that“

    I had a complete knee replacement done by you at Epsom hospital. The reason for this review is to thank you for the amazing job you and your staff did. I am able to walk long distance climb stairs like I used to but this time without pain. The scar from the operation is only a thin pink line now as opposed to the operation cut which looked like you used a tin opener to get in. Obviously there was pain in great doses at first but nevertheless, I discarded my crutches at 6 weeks and have not looked back. I cannot emphasize enough the need for all pre-operation consultations to expound on getting fit and toning one's muscles. I listened and worked hard at it, even taking painkillers to assist as advised prior to my operation and even harder after the op. I was self-motivated and was not required to go to physiotherapy classes even once. My motivation here is towards others who must know you will deliver a first-class job for which I am truly grateful but they have put in the same effort to heal correctly. Thank you again Doctor Charles for my painless freedom of movement.

    Mr Riviere has operated on my stepfather and he has done a fantastic job with a great early recovery for my stepfather, who now can walk without discomfort after only a few months.
