“I had an excellent experience with Mr Stafford and all of his team; they were all very professional, organised and confident. During the diagnosis stage Mr Stafford described to me the reality of my condition and explained the surgical options. Whilst recognising it was quite a lot for me to take in he also gave me great confidence that I would be in a better, stronger position post surgery. His approach and manner gave me the comfort to proceed with the operation. On the day of the operation Mr Stafford clearly explained the steps that were about to happen and set my mind to rest before the operation. Everything went smoothly. My post op care in hospital was excellent and the whole team were well versed in their roles with strong attention to all the fine details. At 6 weeks post op my new hip feels fantastic and I am positively looking forward to the future. “

Giles Stafford & his team carried out a bilateral hip replacement on me in February 2020. Every aspect of the process - pre-operative, operative, post-operative - was without fault; I had a full understanding of the objectives at every stage, and therefore complete confidence in Giles at all times. There is no doubt that Giles is at the top of his game; always engaged & engaging, never complacent - passionate about getting his patients back on the pitch (or wherever they want to return to).

Mr Stafford is forthright, funny and informative in his approach and explanation of the overall process. I felt very reassured despite being hugely nervous and depressed about having to have a hip replacement. He was patient with my many questions and provided sensible rationale, backed up by experience and research.

What Giles did for me feels like a miracle. A completely pain free operation has me back to full mobility and feeling 20 years younger! Wonderful.

Mr Stafford was a pleasure to work with on my left hip replacement. Having had issues for 4 years, with the last 2 years being very painful with restricted movement. It was great to have expert advice in a friendly but realistic manner. During the whole process i was well informed and highlighted of the risks involved. The operation has been a game changer and it's so great to play sports with no pain and mostly importantly do the simple daily tasks of putting on socks with no hassle. Having a full hip replacement at age 40, I received a lot of comments from friends and family that i was too young. But honestly it's been so good to be back to 'normal'. The pre and post op support has been fantastic. Here is to a pain free and very active 2021!

I really benefitted from getting an MRI and xray of my hip, and the expert opinion of Giles Stafford. He was happy to take time to explain in anatomical detail, using the big screen. I was pleased that he recommended a conservative approach, strengthening supporting muscles, which has worked well to reduce pain.

I would definitely recommend Mr Stafford. He was brilliant at explaining the procedure, what the expected results were and answered all my questions in a methodical, easy to understand way. In addition, the procedure was a great success and has allowed me to return back to sporting activities.

My physio recognised I needed a hip replacement and recommended Mr. Stafford to me. I have been fortunate in that I've had very little experience of hospitals in my life and no experience at all of private practice and so was a a little anxious about the whole thing. Mr. Stafford and his team were incredibly empathetic at consultation stage and spent quite a while going through the different options available in terms of types of hip replacement. Once I made the decision to proceed (and I did consult with another, more local, surgeon before making my decision) the whole process happened very quickly. The operation was scheduled within 2 weeks and the level of service I received from everyone involved was superb in terms of quality, reassurance and after-care. The operation itself was highly successful. There was very little discomfort after the operation and I was walking unaided within 2 days - which I believe sums up the level of skill involved from everyone working with Mr. Stafford. I have just had my one year anniversary with my knew hip and have been back to regular running these last 9 months. If I ever need my other hip operated on, I know who I will be calling on.

Hip Replacement
From January 2020 my hips deteriorated and by the end of June I could hardly walk. 13 weeks after by bilateral hip operation I am a new person. I can not only walk but cycle and even return to light jogging. Giles Stafford has given me a new lease of life and through his knowledge, skills and understanding of my later life aspirations has enabled my physical activities to resume again. Thanks Giles and team great job.

The whole experience has been faultless. I was quite nervous about needing a new hip, increased by Covid. However there was no need to be. Mr Stafford clearly communicated what was going to happen, why and when, and everything went exactly as he said it would. I have had minimal pain due to excellent pain management, and I am feeling great only two weeks post op. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him.

I cannot recommend more highly the hip replacement surgery and aftercare I have received from Mr Giles Stafford. From the first consultation I had with him to the follow up appointments after my surgery, I have found Mr Stafford to be most approachable and professional but with a kindness and warmth which instills confidence in his patients. He is also highly regarded by the staff at the Wellington Hospital who work alongside him who continually assured me that I had been in the safest of surgeon's hands. Praise indeed. Thank you Mr Stafford, you've made me feel young again.

This was my second hip replacement by Giles and I have to say, brilliant has just got even better! The operation has become even slicker than it was: - No epidural, so increased mobility after the operation - Better pain management drugs - Cryotherapy helped to reduce swelling and pain - The impact somehow overall was far less - Muscle activation was quickly regained, which meant a lot less time crutches - The scar from the operation was also amazingly neat What more can you ask for?

Bilateral Hip Replacement
From the outset, I had great confidence in Giles. He was recommended by a friend with similar sporting interests and past history, and was a very satisfied patient 5 years on. I was pleased with my decision for bilateral surgery and found that the experience was simply not a drama at all. Giles was immediately on hand for a misplaced scary post-op moment, providing a simple explanation and reassurance. At all stages, I felt that he really cares about doing the best that he possibly can in every respect and that patient satisfaction is his ultimate reward. I am delighted to be ranked as an extremely satisfied patient and have no hesitation in recommending Giles to others. For me, I found myself walking unaided a little over two weeks after surgery and the predicted rehab period is simply flying by. Thank YOU Giles!
