I have recently had a full hip replacement with Dr Atkinson and I would highly recommend him. I have been suffering with arthritis for years, Dr Atkinson took the time to thoroughly explain options to me with the pros and cons of each. I am young for this type of operation but recovered far faster than anyone anticipated. Dr Atkinson has been available throughout for any questions and to provide advice and support. I am finally pain free and have improved mobility already, I am only 6 weeks post op and am stronger than before.

After struggling with my hip pain and discomfort for a number of years. I obtained a private MRI from a clinic here in Lanzarote and forwarded to Mr Atkinson. A Zoom call was arranged and as I sat with my list of issues that I was experiencing that I had prepared before the call. Once the call start he explained that from these MRI images he could detect all the issues that I was experiencing. This was without me mentioning my list. I knew from this first interaction that I would be in good hands

I would like to write to say my thanks to Mr.Atkinson for the excellent care and attention I received before, during and after my hip replacement in July this year. He took time to tell me the pros and cons of the operation, and at all times answered my many questions post operation comprehensively. Despite being an NHS patient I didn’t feel treated in any inferior way to a private patient and I would have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone, or indeed having another operation carried out by him in the future.He has an excellent bedside manner.

Mr Atkinson made me feel very confident that he understood my problem and clearly has an encyclopaedic knowledge of knees! He explained my condition and what could be done to fix it in a very straightforward manner. I was therefore able to understand my options and his recommendations and make an informed choice about my treatment. He made me feel very comfortable before the operation and I was grateful that he explained just what a big and painful experience full knee replacement is. His follow up after the operation has been excellent and I have been very impressed with the way he and physiotherapist kept in touch about my progress.
