“Mr Gleeson listened and understood everything about my need for a new knee. He gave a chance to have a new life to me . I was a fat 59 year old , depressed housewife who was unable to walk . Because of the chance he gave me , because he listened to my explanation of how I got in to this state , I have a new life . I swim , paddle board ,do pilates and socialise more . I am now fit and have lost a lot of weight. He was also very good humoured and approachable at all times and very professional . He happily answered questions and explained exactly what was going to happen . The results far exceeded my own expectations . I cannot thank him enough. The 12 month follow up appointment was very good too.“

    Explanation (5/5)
    A very competent and skillful practitioner, who I would happily recommend to any of my friends and family. Particularly if they required surgery to regain the full, active and painless use of a knee joint. I could barely walk prior to the operation, the"bone on bone" articulation of my left leg,reduced my ability to walk to only a few yards and the severe pain effected my sleeping patterns. Now, after one year I can walk happily for miles and my sleep is no longer disturbed with bouts of intense pain.
