    I’ve now seen Mr Owen-Johnstone for several procedures as a result of my participation in contact sport. He has an excellent knowledge of standard procedures but also will take into consideration the person’s individual needs and is happy to brainstorm and tailor treatments to give them the best outcome. Most recently Simon extensively reviewed the literature and discussed this with me to treat an unusual injury. In al cases Simon’s treatment has allowed me to return fighting fit to the activities I love.

    I saw Mr Owen-Johnstone for a second opinion. I was impressed at not only his clear technical ability, but also the way he explained my injury in terms I could really understand. His advice was excellent and I am so glad I saw him for a second opinion. He also has a very kind and understanding manner.

    I was lucky to have selected this consultant. Thorough explanations, both surgeries went well with a much better outcome aesthetically and internally than other friends that have undergone similar collarbone breaks with other consultants. If you see this review and are in the process of choosing a consultant like I was, look no further.

    Mr Owen Johnstone recently operated on my hand for Dupuytren's contracture with a skin graft. From consultation through to PostOp my experience was faultless, and my recovery has been so much better than I expected. Mr Owen Johnstone is a true professional and an outstanding surgeon.

    Simon is an excellent clinician and a trusted and valued colleague. He offers patients a holistic approach and likes to involve the entire multi-disciplinary team. He is conservative and will not rush patients to surgery unless really needed. He has a lovely bedside manner and rapidly establishes rapport with patients. I would highly recommend Simon to patients.
