Absolutely magnificent from start to finish! On meeting Mr Conroy I had immediate confidence in him , and the techniques he was using to replace my arthritic hip! My new hip is amazing , no pain at all , scar has nearly disappeared after 4 months and my mobility and flexibility is completely restored. Just wonderful!

Very pleased with my right hip replacement by Mr Conroy six months ago due to arthritis, as it has now settled down very well with minimal aching after a full days treking and climbing. So I am now focusing on building the distance and difficulty up over several consecutive days so I can hopefully go treking again for approx 20 days in the Himalayas later this year and I will resume other exercise eg swimming as soon as it permitted as I found this very beneficial in my first stages of recovery.

Listened and was thorough in assessment and diagnosis, giving all the options available to me. Opted for the robotics operation which gave me more assurance of accuracy. The operation itself was by epidural, no pain (although the sounds and smells reminded me a little of the dentists)! Afterwards (within 24 hours) I was moving my leg, bending my knee, walking with support (frame then crutches) and managing stairs. I'm very please with the outcome.

Mr Conroy is without a doubt a leader in his field. He always takes the time to explain things fully and help with any queries. I was able to have a bi lateral hiop replacement, which I wanted as both hips were very bad and I couldn't really have time off again 6 months later for another operation. Luckliy My Conroy in one of a small number who will do bi lateral hip replacements. I am now just over a year post surgery and am generally pain free.

From my first consultation Mr Conroy diagnosed my condition, understood my concerns and expectations. He explained the procedure clearly and in detail with what I should expect and any attached risks. My in patient experience was excellent and recovery straightforward. The physiotherapy advice was good and aided my return to normal function. I am keen sports person and long distance event devotee. I now find that since I had my robotic hip replacement I can again enjoy these pastimes, pain free.

Following my first consultation with Mr. Conroy I was admitted to hospital for a hip replacement with the removal of pins. I found the whole experience extremely professional and all the staff well trained, efficient and friendly. The operation was very successful and I am delighted with the result.

I knew by the time I saw Mr Conroy that I needed bilateral hip replacement due to osteoarthritis. At the age of 48, I was younger than average to be having this type of surgery and I had done quite a lot of research and seen one other consultant beforehand. It is now five weeks since my second operation. From the first consultation, Jon reassured me that I had found the right person to do my surgery. He had a sympathetic but no-nonsense manner that inspired trust and confidence. I felt I was given the right amount of information throughout the process and was treated with respect and courtesy by the whole team. I had confidence in the robotic arm assisted surgery and appreciated the efficiency and precision this gave to the procedure. I particularly appreciated Jon's consideration of my situation regarding the timing of the second operation. In the weeks following the operations, I was also very pleased to be following a unrestricted recovery which meant that post surgery, I did not have to follow rules regarding movement and positioning of my hips. I would not hesitate in recommending Mr Conroy to others needing hip replacement.

I first met Mr Conroy when working as a physiotherapist at Harrogate District Hospital. I have treated a number of MR Conroy patients with both Hip and Knee issues, following arthroscopes and joint replacement surgery. I have found Mr Conroy professional knowledge, expertise second to none and the manner in which he speaks to both his patients and other staff members is excellent. I have been lucky enough to work with Olympic athletes from Team GB, Team Australia, Team China, Qatar national football team academy players and a number of different professional sporting teams and athletes around the UK. I would have no hesitations in recommending and sending any of my athletes, private patients, or members of the public to Mr Conroy for an orthopaedic opinion, surgical review or operation on hips and knees.

Brilliant enthusiastic approach explained what was wrong with my hip and how to repair it . Really quickly turned around which has saved my business. Nhs surgeon told me to find another career as I wouldn’t do my job after hip replacement. My no restrictions hip robotic surgery went well. And even the unforeseen haematoma(clot) if I got that wrong was dealt with quickly. And my recovery Has been fast and now back at work 1 month after. And completely pain free

After struggling with my hip issues, we came to see Mr Conroy. The prognosis I received was not what I was expecting, however he made me feel much more at ease by fully explaining the likelihood of my surgery and exactly what the problem was. After having my MRI scan, it was quickly apparent as to what the problem was and I felt 100% confident that Mr Conroy knew and could solve what was happening. When it came to the day of my surgery, I was not worried about it because I wanted the pain to be done and I was confident that he would solve the problem. Before my surgery, everything was explained to me so I didn't feel worried or concerned, with me understanding every possible outcome. After my surgery, I had the best possible outcome and had strong guidance on how to get through my recovery the best way I could to ensure best outcomes in the long run. Could not have asked for better guidance and care in my situation. Despite reading what COULD happen during my surgery, my mind was put to rest because of the excellent support and guidance that I received before, during and after.

After initial consultation with Mr Conroy I was left confident that a positive outcome was in no doubt. His explanations of the causes and effects of my hip problems and the operations needed to rectify them, were clear and inspired confidence. The Operations (9 months apart) both went extremely smoothly. I was impressed with Mr Conroy's clinical professionalism, especially in the way his surgical team worked so flawlessly. I felt no discomfort during the operations and any anxiety I felt was quickly allayed. Post Op discomfort was minimal and Post Op care continues. Both Operations have been a complete success. My treatment by Mr Conroy was excellent from the outset, he is a very able communicator who inspires confidence the moment you meet him. I think he is a brilliant surgeon and a thoroughly decent human being.

Mr Conroy has dealt with three problems for me, including two joint replacements, over the past four years. In each case the diagnosis was swift, the options put to me clearly and concisely. The pre-op counselling was thorough and full. The operations themselves, by far the most important consideration, were superb. No bruising, scars healing very quickly; both signs of an efficient surgeon. Post-op care was excellent and final discharge well organised. His "bedside manner" was impeccable and I would have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone.

Jon was excellent in his explanation of the problem with my hip and also in explaining what my alternative options were. I decided to undergo surgery under a general anesthetic. I found it imperative to do the advised post operation exercises to strengthen and activate the appropriate muscles. I am now 20 months down the line with virtually full range of movement with my hip and no pain. Very pleased that I made the decision.

My experience was unusual. I went under the anaesthetic normally but remember little of it. Then I lost about 2 days, apparently suffering a mini stroke, with confused speech and a very weak R arm. I was then transferrerd to an NHS ward specialising in strokes, given good attention , tests, for four days, no after effects found. Then discharged after 7 nights in hospital.
