Very pleasant welcoming person who communicated well and explained things clearly. He also gave me time to think of any questions I wanted to ask. He hadn't booked an X ray for me which meant I had to wait a few minutes in the waiting room for a room to be made ready but that was no problem. He wasn't able to give me a date for the pre-op assessment or the operation, but these are strange times at the moment.

Mr Kempshall was extremely thorough, and easy to talk to. I have a complex condition with which I have lived for 10 years thinking that I just need to work on through the pain and discomfort. After listening and an examination he explained that there is indeed a surgical target which he was almost certain would improve my walking vastly. This procedure is less intrusive with a quicker recovery time than imagined. The explanation was in clear terms with the xray to point to and further describe the condition I am living with and how he could help. With a further test it will make him certain! Due to this clear explanation rather than being fearful I am now looking forward to the surgery and a much improved life without having to plan how far I can walk.

My partial knee replacement is a success. I have my life back thank you Mr K. Not quite ready for the other knee to be done yet, but when I am, I only want to see Mr Kempshall. I seem to know lots of people who have seen Mr Kempshall about knee problems recently. I would definitely recommend him. Thank you again.
