Mr Apthorp is undoubtedly amongst the leaders in his field ( if not the leader ). It is quite simply amazing that his skill and techniques can ensure you are up and walking well on the same day as your hip replacement is carried out. Furthermore after two weeks I am able undertake all day to day activities without difficulty or pain. I have regained confidence and look forward to engaging in sporting activities once again in a few weeks time. Thank you Mr Apthorp, and your team.

Highly recommended. Mr Hugh Apthorp spent a good deal of time explaining my hip issue, the options I had, and his recommendations. Additionally, he answered my long list of questions without rushing me. His language was calm and inspired confidence. Pre-op and post-op his bed side manner was excellent and this assisted my recovery no end. His follow-up consultations were likewise. Overall, I have a perfectly fitted new hip done by an expert. How lucky am I!

Mr Apthorpand his practice manager were so kind and hugely accessible. I would have liked perhaps to have more warning about what might happen to me when I got home, so I would not have panicked about normal things like big swellings which were normal and bothered them for nothing. I feel very lucky to have had my surgery with Mr. Apthorp and have been miles ahead of my friends with driving, sleeping and walking and am very grateful to them and London Bridge Hospital where the staff were kind and efficient. Thank you all.

Before having my hip replacement operation in October 2021, I felt that I had thoroughly carried out my research in finding the right Consultant for my previously broken hip. As soon as I met Mr Apthorp, I felt full of confidence and I knew completely that I had found the right man. Mr Apthorp explained everything in understandable language, and in the most kind and considerate manner. His Practice Manager, Abi , was efficient and helpful plus her charming attitude made my appointments enjoyable at the hospital. My stay and surgery at the London Bridge Hospital went smoothly without issue and Mr Apthorp's team were professional and supportive at all times. My recovery is going better than expected - 7 weeks now down the line. I have to admit I am in love with Mr Apthorp for releasing me from the relentless, gnawing nerve hip pain I had endured for months. I now feel re-energised and upbeat about resuming my horse-riding and skiing together with enjoying being able to keep up with my eight grandchildren in the future.

I still can't believe I have had hip surgery after putting it off for 7 years. It was only when I met Mr. Apthorp after two recommendations that I ventured to explore the possibilities. During the consultation I understood exactly what would happen both during and after the operation. Everything went smoothly and Mr. Apthorp and his pa Abi put my mind at rest at every stage. I am not a good patient and worry about everything, however I cannot think of a better surgeon to place yourself in the hands of who will reassure you and give you confidence. He really is a one off.
