    After limping on my knee for months I decided to book a consultation with Mr Bailey. The examination was thorough & he arranged a MRI scan to confirm his diagnosis. This was undertaken swiftly. The proposed procedure was fully explained (arthroscopy) during a further consultation and a date agreed for the operation. Unfortunately Coronavirus delayed the operation until August, when I was admitted to a BMI hospital for the procedure. Mr Bailey met me pre-operation & discussed again the operation I was to receive & marked my leg. The operation was carried out without complications. I was seen by Mr Bailey after the operation & before discharge to ensure I was OK and to run through what he had done, together with receipt of before and after images of the work he had undertaken. We discussed the do’s and don’ts for the 3 week period after my operation including attending to the dressings. After 2 weeks I had a further consultation where progress and any complications (none) were discussed along with ‘normal’ post operation conditions. This was the second operation performed by Mr Bailey having repaired a ruptured quadriceps tendon approx 5 years ago on the same knee. Overall Mr Bailey was approachable, answering my many questions in a calm and reassuring professional manner. I was treated with respect. My knee is well on the way to full recovery. I have no hesitation in recommending Mr Bailey for necessary knee surgery.

    For me Chris Bailey really ticks all the boxes - even though I was not able to meet him due to the Corona Pandemic We liaised re X Ray images which I had carried out by my local hospital and Chris immediately advised me - twice actually as the images were below standard first time round. His explanations were exemplary. Consultants need excellent secretarys and Chris has the best there is. She is clearly familiar with the subject and was highly efficient, courteous and kind every time I spoke to her. Nothing was too much trouble.

    Thank you for taking the time to feedback your experience. I am pleased to read that you were happy with your care and I will pass on your comments to the team. All the best, Chris Bailey

    Mr Bailey is the consummate professional. He is patient with his patients, was always able to inform me of the cause of things that were unexpected in my recovery and put my mind to rest, and was able to be frank and helpful as well as kind. It is a rare combination.

    My 11 year old daughter saw Mr Bailey with a knee injury. He was very good at explaining everything to her, using a model of a knee to help her understand how the knee works and her injury.

    Mr Bailey explained the procedure fully and happily answered questions or concerns. He put me at ease as I was extremely nervous. Following my two operations he visited each day I was in hospital to check on recovery and subsequent follow up appointments were made. Also very neat repair work. Thank you.

    Thank you for your review. I am pleased to hear your were happy with the operation and your recovery. I wish you all the best for the future. Mr Bailey

    I experienced intermittent pain in one of my knees that was affecting walking for pleasure and taking part in sports. Mr Bailey understood the problem and once scans were done explained what could be done to improve the situation. I had a torn meniscus that was catching causing the pain. I had a short procedure to trim the frayed parts that were catching. I followed the exercises carefully and returned to enjoying long walks and sports. When my other knee developed a similar problem I contacted Mr Bailey again. Mr Bailey explained what he would do and what I could expect in terms of recovery. I am very pleased with the results and have no hesitation in recommending Mr Bailey.

    Mr Chris Bailey

    Thank you for your review and I am delighted to hear your operation went well and you are pleased with your recovery. I hope you are again enjoying walking and sports pain free. All the best, Mr Bailey

    Dear Mr Chris Bailey, I thought you might like to know how I am progressing after you preformed a Mako right knee replacement at Wessex Nuffield hosp. No pain or discomfort, also back to near normal life for me. I am near the end of my 3 months Gym at Nuffield, (I am not usually a gym person) but I am going there 3 times a week and doing aqu-fit in the hydrotherapy pool as well ‘on a Thursday and my usual Tuesdays at Wessex Cancer Trust plus any extra times I’m required as a befriender as well as normal housework, gardening ,( not knelt down yet, a bit wet) but back to a social life and I think I am progressing well. Thanks to you. I would like to wish you and your family a Happy Christmas and best wishes for 2020. Many thanks.
