“Full information given regarding pre and post operative care. He is open, honest, approachable and very professional, gaining full confidence of his patient. The result of my surgery was more fulfilling than I anticipated. I am now pain free, able to sit and enjoy peoples company or watching TV without squiggling to find a comfortable position. I sleep well at night without pain disturbance and feel more refreshed in the mornings. Going for a walk and fresh air is now a pleasure without fear of falls or pain onset . Standing for long periods is no longer a problem and balance is excellent due to him making my legs the same length. Mr Loughead has made me a new woman and enabled me to "Live" my life without pain and with more enthusiasm and vitality. Thank you so very much“

    Mr Loughead was very clear to explain the options open to me following my diagnosis. He is an excellent communicator, explaining my procedure fully and answering my questions about aftercare. In the post operation appointment he illustrated fully the work he had done and was very encouraging in his manner and advice to ensure continued improvement. An excellent experience throughout. I would not hesitate to recommend Mr Loughead to anyone needing his services.
