“Dr Mathew was very professional and was committed to providing the best care. The initial consultation was very detailed, with imaging reviewed and hand examined. I was very pleased with the time he spent explaining treatment options and the reassurance he gave me in returning back to work with my dominant hand injured. He went out of his way to help facilitate further imaging (MRI) to ensure I could return to work as soon as possible. His team including the hand physio specialist made all the difference to ensure I had a speedy recovery. Thank you to you and your team.“

    Amazing experience. From my initial consultation to my post op consultation Dr Philip went above and beyond what I had expected to ensure I got the best treatment possible for my fracture. The amount of effort and time he dedicated to ensure I was able to have the best possible chance at moving my wrist again is something I will never forget. I am forever grateful for the work Dr Philip has done for me as it has changed my life.

    Mr. Mathew has performed trigger release surgery on 5 of my fingers. The fingers became painful at different times so I've had 5 operations. Before each operation the pain was excruciating all the time (even when the finger wasn't moving) and Tramadol didn't touch it - this was to the extent that I lost the use of the hand. After each operation, I got the use of the hand fully back and have been completely free of pain. The hand movement is excellent and I would hugely recommend Mr. Mathew who is a genuinely friendly, caring and nice person as well as being an awesome surgeon.

    Mr Matthew is an excellent and efficient consultant who quickly recognised and diagnosed my condition using the appropriate diagnostic imaging and investigations. He then explained to me the necessary further investigations and procedures prior to determining the needed surgery. At every stage he was able to explain the procedures and diagnosis to me in medical language that I understood. Surgery was a very pleasant experience and I have had many comments from others as to how neatly the scars are healing.

    Mr Matthews and his team were extremely efficient . I was seen on time and all aspects of the procedure were explained thoroughly . The operation was painless although a little Synge experience for me. He made me feel completely at ease. The results exceeded my expectations ,all follow ups were made and I would have no hesitation in recommending or seeing him again if ever required. Thank you
