    I could not be happier! My whole experience with Mr M has been amazing. He took the time to explain everything and helped me understand what the options were. Going through surgery seemed naturally smooth and I was very well looked after. Amazing service, thank you!

    Explained the options clearly and that helped me decide on the best treatment. Other surgeons were fast to suggest surgery but he never rushed it and I am much better with his non-surgical treatment.

    Mr Malagelada gave me clear and helpful advice. I really appreciated the initial videoconsultation (due to lockdown) that put me at ease and the subsequent follow ups fixed my painful ankle. Back to running and I can’t thank him enough.
