“From the moment of him greeting me he made me feell at ease i had already had one knee replacement that didnt go well (operation wise ) so was very nervous . Kostas explained everything to me but also relaxed me . On the day of the operation he came round spoke to me adking if i was ok and once again reasuring me . As far as i know the ooeration went well because all was good when he finished . He then came and see me the next day asking how l felt and telling me he was very pleased with the proceedure . He came and saw me again on the day i was sent home telling me again all went well . A very very pleasent charming Chap and i have had a few surgeons work on me and he bar far and above was the best . I then had to see him for my follow up 7 weeks later the scar was amazing like a very very thin line that can hardle be seen , bit different from the massive ugly scar on other knee . Once again he said he was very pleased , showed me x ray and explained all about alignment and how pleased he was , he was so very enthusiastic, he then adked me to get up out of chair and walk about and pointed out that i was hesitant in getting up but said to be expected so just try to think when i get up about it . He was really pleased with movement and praised me for the work i had done which was pleaseing . I cannot praise Kostas enough , a brilliant Surgeon . Bob Skeet “
