    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.
