    I first saw Mr Caesar in mid November 2020 and after a scan was booked in a week before Christmas for open surgery on my right knee for a quad tendon repair. The operation has left only a minor scar and my movement is already fantastic after less than 3 months after the operation. I have returned to cycling and will start running in a month or so. I am so pleased with the outcome and having selected Mr Caesar was a good choice taking into account his knowledge and vast experience.

    From the first consultation with Ben I was put straight at ease. He gave me so much confidence and helped me to trust 100% what he was telling me. I knew I was in safe hands, which massively improved my recovery. I’m thankful to Ben for such a successful surgery and for helping me to continue with my playing career. Without Ben’s knowledge and understanding of my situation, I really don’t know if playing at the elite level would have been possible again. Thank you Ben, I’m very grateful!

    After a couple of years of pain and frustration, I decided to consult Mr Caesar about my shoulder. I am an avid rugby player and was desperate to make it back to the field of play. Mr Caesar performed keyhole surgery on my shoulder, and so far it has been an unqualified success. My range of motion has all but returned to 100%, with no feeling of instability. Mr Caesar was incredibly reliable and has guided me back towards playing rugby once again. I couldn't recommend Mr Caesar enough!

    I have had two muscular/ tendon repairs with Mr Caesar. Both were done quickly and the explanations and information from consultation, pre op to post operation after care were excellent. I was put at ease and had total confidence in the way the procedures would be done. The scars were fine and minimised quickly and were very neat which as they settle down are starting to totally disappear. I was able to return to normal movement very quickly. I would recommend anyone to Mr Caesars care knowing that you would get the care and support you need, delivered efficiently with the minimum of fuss. If I had to put into one word my experience it would be 'Excellent'

    Mr Caesar reconstructed the anterior cruciate ligament of the knee in a few patients I've referred to him. They quickly recovered a stable and painfree knee, I only had elogious feedbacks.
