    I went to see Mr Millington for a second opinion for my torn ACL. He put me at ease instantly and explained everything to me about my injury in a ‘human way’. I’ve had 2 surgeries with him and he has taken good care of me. He’s also very polite and easy to talk to and didn’t make me feel rushed. It helps that he has also torn his ACL so I knew that he understood my problem from a doctor and a patient point of view.

    Explanation

    Mr Millington has recently done my total hip replacement which was overall a smooth process and a positive experience. Being only 35 with 2 small children I was naturally apprehensive about going ahead with the surgery, however Mr Millington was supportive throughout and I felt that he really took my personal situation into consideration. I went into the surgery knowing everything I needed to know and I came out (now 6 weeks post-op) feeling supported. The stand out aspects of Mr Millington (aside from his experience/medical knowledge of course!) is that he’s really personable and if you ever need to ask him a question pre/post-op he is at the end of the phone. I would highly recommend choosing him as your surgeon.
