“From the moment I met Mr Apthorp, I felt at ease and knew I had chosen the finest surgeon to do my hip replacement. At that time, I had no knowledge of minimally invasive hip replacement surgery and left the consultation elated in the knowledge that I would regain my mobility swiftly and there would be no stitches to worry about. My operation was totally without fear, trauma or even apprehension. It went so smoothly that I awoke in Recovery totally alert and perky. I had no pain and the next 48 hours went smoothly with no setbacks and nothing to worry me. I walked the same day and when Mr Apthorp came to see me, I had the pleasure of walking with him. He gave me complete confidence from beginning to end. My hip replace ment surgery went smoothly, with no pain and I felt positive and confident all the way through. I am in awe of the skill of this wonderful surgeon and would urge anyone needing hip replacement surgery to consult Mr Apthorp. Three weeks later I am walking without any aids and have no pain or discomfort and feel very happy.“

Mr Apthorp listened very carefully to my concerns, especially about improving my cycling action. He addressed these issues in the procedure, and now my ability to cycle has improved greatly. I am very happy with the outcome. My experience under Mr Apthorp's care has been entirely positive.

I was referred to Mr Apthorp by another surgeon for my minimally invasive left hip replacement. He told me Mr Apthorp is the "Surgeon's Surgeon". That was enough for me. I first spoke to Abi who immediately reassured me I was in good hands. When I met with Mr Apthorp he was calm, kind and explained everything clearly. I signed up there and then. I am now 6 weeks post surgery and have just been discharged. I am largely pain-free and very mobile. I cannot recommend Mr Apthorp and his team enough. I had a family bereavement days before my surgery and everyone involved in my care was aware and supportive. I am a new person, this operation has changed my life. Cannot recommend highly enough!

I could not be happier with Mr Apthorp and his Team. I had a hip replacement 6 weeks ago at London Bridge Hospital. I have had very little pain and it has healed very quickly. Mr Apthorp explained everything very clearly and came to see me in the hospital soon after surgery to check how I was. Since then, I have had several further meetings with him and have followed his advice which has led to my speedy recovery. His assistant Abigail is amazingly friendly, helpful, efficient and patient - and was on call from the beginning to the end. A fantastic team who I recommend highly!
