    Mr Bain has been extremely kind and professional throughout my whole experience with a broken ring finger on my left hand. After many months with the hand therapy physiotherapists, I ageed to have the surgery that Mr Bain had recommended. The surgery at St. Thomas' hospital went extremely well, all as thoroughly explained by Mr Bain in advance. My recovery went exactly as Mr Bain had explained it would too. I can't thank him enough and would have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone with hand problems.

    Mr Bain was open, friendly and relaxed. He took time to explain the procedure to me, and never once gave the impression he was in a hurry. A wonderful man - I couldn’t have been happier to have him as my surgeon.

    Consultation with a plastic surgeon is a most important selection process. Not something you will do frequently. On my initial meeting with Mr Charles Bain I was nervous but was made to feel very comfortable right away! I was very aware of finding a professional who would be right for me and help achieve the goals for my elective procedure. Mr Bain is an expert in his profession and very current with techniques. He explained all aspects of surgery and gave me a real insight of my procedure from the pre-op, anesthesia, time in surgery, recovery and preparing for any discomfort post surgery. I left my initial appointment extremely happy and more than satisfied and knew he would be the surgeon for me. I am writing this review three weeks post surgery and am elated with my procedure, I would highly recommend Mr Bain who has given me life changing surgery with real kindness, care utmost professionalism. I cannot thank him enough!
