    I had a nasty horse riding accident and dislocated my elbow and tore multiple tendons in my arm and shoulder. I have had 3 surgeries with Mr Sforza and my arm is almost as good as new. He is excellent and patient and kind.

    Mr Sforza is a very caring professional. He listens carefully and describes the problem, the solution and the procedure so that a lay person can understand. He listened carefully to my concerns and addressed them so that I was reassured. My operation went went and the follow up appointments were reassuring and positive. I would recommend Mr Sforza to everyone .. he is everything you want your consultant to be.

    A nice quiet amiable but very professional surgeon who certainly knows what he is dealing with. Also a very reassuring attitude towards patients concerns so I would not hesitate to be referred to him if ever needed...of which I hope not!
