    So far so good. Mr Caesar has been kind, reassuring and extremely professional in dealing with my case. I have trust in his ability to understand not only the medical journey that I am on, but also the phycological state that can present itself due to a debilitating condition. My shoulder has been dealt with in little over a week which is fantastic - thank you.

    Explanation (5/5)
    The care received by Ben prior to and after my 15 year old sons ACL repair has been exceptional. His ability to put a teenager at ease and give him the confidence that he will return to sport is second to none. My son thinks very highly of Ben and I do too. No question is too much and he will go above and beyond to help. I would recommend Ben to anyone considering using his services.

    I have referred patients to them

    "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."
