    He was highly recommended and totally lived up to, and exceeded my expectations. Thoroughly professional, marvellous bedside manner, instilled complete confidence and did exactly what we discussed. His explanations before and after surgery were crystal clear. Still recovering so cannot comment on the end product, but 6 days post op all is going to plan.

    In my experience Mr Lambert has been great throughout. I had a total shoulder replacement two years ago and thanks to his skills and expertise the result is much better that I expected. He is an excellent surgeon (my scar is invisible) but also his attitude and bedside manners are very good, he looks after you not just the technical aspects of the operation.

    Mr Lambert has a great way to communicate with young patients (and adults for that matter). He is very calm and friendly. He performed a complicated surgery on my 9 years old. My son loves him and thinks he is the best. Mr Lambert explained the procedure to us very clearly before hand and followed everything through in the best possible way. The wound healing went very smoothly and the scar is looking very clean and neat already after a few weeks. I am ever so grateful for his great work.
