I followed the exercises and am now much better.. MR Jennings and his team are wonderful very organised and make the patent feel like we are the only ones they are helping. I would not hesitate to recommend Mr Jennings. I hope this will help someone who may need to see him.

    I spent 6 months limping and wasting money on Phyisios. When I could barely function anymore I had a scan done on a Friday afternoon and saw Mr Jennings on the Monday. He operated on the Thursday. Everything was wonderful from the consultation, the treatment I received from both himself and his staff, the hospital staff, everything and of course I could walk pain-free after the operation. 2 weeks on it is like I have a new leg. It has changed my life. I am very grateful to him.

    Mr Jennings worked complete magic on my full knee replacement!!!. My knee op was very complex and Mr Jennings took the time post op to explain in detail what had been done. I felt totally reassured by his words and I was told that in the days following the op if I had any issues that needed answering re post operative care/medication /anti inflammatory medicine I should not hesitate to contact his excellent PA.. I am 75 this year and he has totally restored my confidence which is even more remarkable considering in what pain I was pre op. Not only is he a brilliant surgeon but also very professional and approachable. Three months on and having followed my post op exercises diligently I have regained full mobility in my left leg and remain forever indebted to Mr Jennings for giving me this new lease of life> Thank you.
