    Hip Replacement
    I found Mr Grogan to be pleasant, approachable, informative, professional and made my feel relaxed and reassured about my total hip replacement. I had Pearthes disease from the age of 7 and not had full range of movement or been pain free until my hip replacement. The five years previous to my operation I suffered greatly and was on constant medication. Since my hip operation I have been able to return fully to Sunday League football, snowboarding, running and downhill mountain biking. I am 50 years old but feel 20!! Having the replacement was most definitely the best decision and I cannot thank Mr Grogan enough for encouraging me to make it (and of course for doing the operation!).

    Knee Replacement
    Mr Grogans for me is a class above any specialist I have ever met. He has successfully treated me with fantastic results performing a partial knee replacement. I was initially in so much pain it was affecting my life, but after having an appointment with Mr Grogans who I found to be so knowledgeable and compassionate, I had no hesitation in his explanation and treatment of my knee which is now pain free. He is extremely diligent and trustworthy in his ways that I have now come back to him for my other knee to be done.

    Having had both my Knees replaced under the care of Mr Grogan, I can wholeheartedly say it was one of the best decisions I have ever made. My post operative mobility has improved immensely, while his warm, kind, and personable demeanor reassured me throughout every step of my procedures. I was a little apprehensive of visible scaring, but found his technique to greatly minimise the propensity for this and was left very little in the way of noticeable scars. I would therefore have no hesitation in recommending Mr Grogan to anyone looking for Orthopedic consultation / treatment.

    Mr Grogan is very caring and takes time to explain everything very thoroughly both pre and post operation. I am extremely pleased with the results of my operations as they have made a big difference to me being able to remain active and resume some activities I had been unable to do.

    Mr Grogan made me feel at ease and patiently listened to my concerns. He is a skilled surgeon and my hip replacement has been a total success. Me Grogan has also performed a meniscus knee repair which has also been successful and the after care consultations were excellent. I would highly recommend Mr Grogan without hesitation.

    Having worked with Mr Grogan for many years I have seen the excellent results he consistently achieves. I would highly recommend him to you if you are considering hip or knee replacement surgery and especially if you are considering the option of hip resurfacing.

    Mr Grogan is a highly experience consultant colleague with excellent results. He sub specialises in hip and knee joint replacement. He is renowned for his particular interest in hip resurfacing, but there is no guarantee that you will beat Andy Murray on the tennis court.
