Knee Testimonials

I felt compelled to write a short note to express my sincere gratitude for all your care, patience and expertise over the past year or so.

It is no exaggeration to say that the resurfacing procedures you have carried out on both my knees have totally transformed my life.  From hardly being able to walk 500 metres back in early February 2009 I’m now able to walk 5000 metres++ with no issues;  I can work out for an hour in the gym and even get the almost 100% of my dear wife’s DIY tasks completed (though not always on time)

Beyond the practical outcomes David your whole approach to me as a patient has been just fantastic.  Always willing to answer my myriad of questions and queries, explaining everything in clear and practical terms (always with a good sprinkling of humour too!)

You described my last knee X-rays as ‘gold standard’, I would add that your care has been ‘platinum standard’ (today’s spot price for platinum is $1280/oz whilst gold is $1004/oz – so you will get my drift I am sure).

Thanks for everything you have done for me.


Once again, thanks to your expert repairs on my knee, I have done great things this year.  The best was a two week enduro motorcycle exped across the Indian Himalayas on a Royal Enfield!!!!
Me and the knee stood up brilliantly.


Am in South Africa now and played 18 holes of golf (but using a cart) and absolutely no negative reaction on the knee.  Whilst golf was poor in terms of stroke, it had nothing to do with the knee (and I avoided going into any bunkers but that was more due to being always short of the green than skill!)  Sun is shining!  Anyway the knee works very well and the 11 hour flight also had no impact.  Thanks again for a very good job!


I could not let the year pass without expressing my sincere thanks to you and your team following my two knee replacements.

I am delighted to confirm that these successful operations have really given me a new lease of life as a direct result of your expert care & professional attention.  My day to day mobility has been significantly enhanced and I am able to enjoy my retirement to the full.

Thank you


Thank you for all your help.  It has been much appreciated. 

Words cannot express how grateful I am to Professor Barrett for his care and wonderful skill.  I intend to grab the chance of a restored active life, with both hands!


Reference my comments regarding the quality of surgery and care I received; please feel completely free to quote me.  I have several friends who have been putting off knee treatments due to pre-conceived ideas of the pain and slow recovery involved, and if I can do anything to destroy these ideas and to encourage people to have the op and thus to learn to retain an active lifestyle please feel free to quote my experience.


Just to let you know that I have recently returned from a week’s windsurfing on the Red Sea; I joined a group of chaps half my age on a course, and the knee surpassed all my expectations.  We were in, on, (and in my case) often under the water for 5 or 6 hours a day with no ill effects.  I am very grateful to you for making it possible – no video sadly, but hopefully a couple of photos to follow!
