    I had a full hip replacement in February 2020. The care I received from Mr Barksfield and the staff at the Winfield Hospital has been exceptional from the initial consultation, operation and after care. Mr Barksfield has explained everything clearly throughout the process. The operation was a great success and I am now completely pain free and able to resume a normal and active life. Everything was explained to me in full by Mr Barksfield from the initial consultation in November 2020 through to my post operative follow up meeting on 14th April 2021. The operation went extremely well and full mobility has been resumed and completely pain free. I would to thank Mr Barksfield for the highest level a professional care and communication throughout this procedure. Kind regards

    If you have pain in a body joint don’t think, it will be alright, it will get better. I don’t believe it will. My hip became worse and worse. I was apprehensive about surgery. Mr Barksfield was very reassuring, caring and professional. The best thing I have ever done was to have Mr Barksfield to replace my hip. It is not very painful. A little uncomfortable yes, for a while. After a few week’s exercising I was almost back to normal and playing a few holes of golf. Do not hesitate. I now live a full active life after 3months and no pain whatsoever . Talk to Mr Barksfield you will not look back.
