    Mr Chipperfield is the only surgeon I would want to do my knee replacement. Everything is clearly explained prior to the operation and when I requested to watch the operation he arranged this for me and explained the operation as he performed it. He puts you at ease with his relaxed, cheeky but professional manner. A lovely man who I would highly recommend.
