I’ve only had one hip surgeon, so it is hard to compare. But I have had other surgeries and in comparison Professor Field provided me with by far the best experience I’ve had to date. Pre-operation he had plenty of time to truly understand my concerns, my needs and to discuss a range of options. There was no pressure, no sales pitch - just honest open conversation. During the surgery I felt very comforted by his bedside manner and after the surgery he has been in contact consistently to ensure that everything has gone well. I’m not a hip expert but I do get the impression that I was treated by a kind, intelligent surgeon at the top of his game.

You feel instantly you’re in the hands of a true professional who knows his work exceptionally well. I’m young to have a total hip replacement and therefore I needed to feel very assured that I would be well looked after. Professor Field works through all the aspects of what is expected and what should be considered so there’s no sugar coating. A straight talking honest man making the best suggestions which is right for you.

I cannot recommend Professor Field enough; if you are facing the prospect of surgery I cannot overstate the support and care that I had throughout the whole process from first meeting to post-operative attention and support. Professor Field is clear about every aspect of the procedure and process, is very easy to talk to and obviously cares. I cannot imagine that many people leave a first consultation 'on a high' after being told they require a double hip replacement, but from that point on I felt cared for and considered throughout. It was most reassuring. Care immediately pre-surgery and post was equally attentive. I am now quite a a few months on from surgery and feel ten years younger than I did pre-surgery.

Prof Field is an excellent surgeon. I have just had a double hip replacement and 9 days post-op I am practically able to walk unaided. My recovery has been exceptional. I put that down to his expertise in performing the operation, and perhaps my determination to religiously follow the advice of my surgeon and the post-op physio team in performing the daily strengthening exercises. I received world class care and attention throughout and would recommend him to anyone needing a hip replacement.

From my first meeting with Professor Field I was confident that I wanted him to complete my Hip Operation. He is clearly a man who loves what he does, is a consummate professional and at the very top of his game in terms of capability and innovation. He explained the process of the operation, the various steps that needed to be taken and the likely recovery process. He also outlined the risks associated with such an operation. At all times I was reassured and could not wait to be relieved of the pain in my hip joint which had so much impacted my daily way of life. Post Op and whilst a little uncomfortable I am not really in any measurable pain and so much less than before the operation. Feel that I will soon be able to dispense with my sticks and start to walk around limp and pain free. Professor Field - a fantastic man who spends his time giving people their lives back - Thank You.

Anterior Hip Replacement
I was reluctant to have surgery in 2020 for obvious reasons, but my minimally invasive right hip replacement performed by Professor Field was the best decision I have made. He suggested in an initial consultation that 6 months after surgery I would have forgotten I ever needed a hip replacement - and I can honestly say that I felt like that after 6 weeks. I was dubious about returning home from hospital just 24 hours after surgery, but it was absolutely the right thing. He knows best! Professor Field explained everything so clearly and was always ready to listen and answer any concerns. I know I owe the success of my surgery and rapid recovery to Professor Field. He is simply the best.

Simply the best surgeon in his field . ( pardon the pun ) thanks to a recommendation from a friend who was his patient. From the first moment of consultation I felt at ease I had no doubt from the beginning with his expertise and care I would come through a different person physically I’m happy to say 9 weeks on from a double hip replacement , I can now walk with ease, no more pain , flexibility ! It’s wonderful and makes me feel so much better about myself , I just smile! Thank you Prof Field .

I have met several medical doctors and professors over the last ten months. Prof Field was by far the most rounded in his approach. He was extremely well prepared for our first meeting and had gone beyond his field of specialism to give me his opinion on how to go about finding a solution for my issue. He was warm and engaging. I could not recommend him more to anyone seeking a first or second opinion.

Professor Field was absolutely charming and, better than that, he explained the results of first, an X-ray then an MRI scan in detail and without being in the slightest bit condescending. I therefore now understand what my medical problem is, and what can potentially be done about it. It is such a relief to be treated as a sentient adult by someone who is clearly eminent in his field. He took time and effort to make sure I understood the situation.
