“Mr Carrington replaced my left hip in 2018 and I came back to him to have my right hip replaced in March 2022. He is a marvellous surgeon, kind, caring and with a sense of humour! Feel totally at ease with him and everything was explained to put my mind at rest even though I knew what to expect. I was having a couple of twinges at the 6 week post op stage and he reassured me that everything was ok and I was progressing well. He also said I was to come back and see him if I had any concerns. 8 weeks post op now and all is well. “
