    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.

    Knee Replacement
    I saw Mr. Richard Grogan regarding a problem with my knee, I had previously had an arthroscopy by a different surgeon a few years earlier who had said that I would need my knee replacing in the future. I chose Mr. Grogan after speaking to friends and colleagues who have had previous experience with Mr. Grogan. From my first consultation to my final discharge I found that Mr. Grogan was extremely professional and caring, offering support and advice throughout. After examination and diagnostic tests Mr. Grogan suggested a total replacement of my left knee which was performed at the Ramsay Yorkshire Clinic a private hospital in Bingley, West Yorkshire. The care I received was exeptional throughout from both Mr. Grogan and the hospital staff. Now just over three years since the operation I have a new lease of life and am enjoying my love of the great outdoors with long walks and using my touring caravan. I cannot recommend Mr. Grogan highly enough for knee and hip replacement surgery and have recommended him to several friends.

    Mr Grogan was extremely kind, caring and very informative regarding my forthcoming surgery. I was extremely anxious about the whole procedure but he put me at total ease. I felt very comfortable and not rushed, Mr Grogan gave me ample opportunity to ask as many questions as possible and answered every one with care and compassion. I am so pleased to have him as my consultant.

    I recently had surgery on my knee to repair a tear and cannot fault my experience. Mr Grogan has done an excellent job, with just two tiny little marks left on my knee. After suffering with it for nearly a year it is now a million times better and I can use it properly again! He was lovely, explained everything to me and made sure I understood everything.

    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.
