    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'

    I was seen and treated urgently by Dr Caesar for a slipped disc with nerve compression and he arranged initial consultation, MRI and x-ray with further follow-up in less than 24hrs. Dr Caesar diagnosed my problem correctly at the first visit and I was very pleased with the way he followed up with my therapy and how I was treated with the medications received. I would definitely recommend him to friends and family if need to be.

    Thank you for your kind remarks. It is a reminder to all of us who look after shoulder related problems that we should never forget to "check the neck", as pain around the shoulder can often be originating from there.

    Having suffered from knee pain for some years I saw Mr Caesar for an opinion. On discovering that there were several issues with my knee it was decided we should go ahead with surgery. I am now well on the road to recovery and my knee is so much better. Mr Caesar has done an amazing job of fixing the problem and my future is so much brighter now. I look forward to doing a lot more things this summer. I would highly recommend Mr Caesar.

    Follow up appointment 8 months post ACL reconstruction & meniscus repair. The scar is barely visible and progress of regaining full movement is going well. I have been very impressed with Mr Caesar's care both during this experience and in 2015 when he also repaired my ruptured Achilles' tendon. Here also the scar is all but invisible and I have full unimpaired use of it. I would recommend him wholeheartedly.

    Ben Caesar is treating me for a ruptured ACL sustained during a skiing holiday. He clearly has a wealth of experience successfully treating high performance athletes as well as "normally active" patients. He is very personable and attentive and has a patient-centric approach. I would very much recommend Mr Caesar for anybody looking for a consultant in this area.

    First saw Mr Caesar after months of shoulder pain. Ultimately had to have a rotator cuff operation. Throughout the process he has been charming and efficient. My shoulder is now perfect again and I have been able to go back to doing all the things like yoga and swimming that I was enjoying before.

    After a RTA resulting in a triple leg break, Mr Caesar performed surgery on my leg not only saving it but also allowing me to walk within three days of the operation. In follow up appointments he has always been very personable and totally dedicated to my recovery. Without his skills I would not be able to walk today.

    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.
