“Before meeting Dr H-B , I wasn’t even aware that the procedure I had ( Knee Osteotomy) was even an option. As an active & sports playing 54 yo I was worried that after having an arthroscopy 4 years earlier, the only option was a total knee replacement. After the initial consultation & from the information provided by Dr H-B, I knew straight away that this procedure was perfect for me , and 18 months later & completely pain free, I wasn’t wrong. I continue to play sports at a high intensity level & confidence that I hadn’t been able to before the procedure. For me anyway… 100% success & very grateful for the advice and skills of Dr Houlihan - Burne. “
