    I had suffered considerable pain from my right hip, I am now pain free and more mobile that I have been for years. The whole experience had been brilliant at all stages Mr Mellor explained what he was doing and the pain was minimal and now I am fully mobile.

    Just like to say that my consultant Mr Mellor who did my operation five months ago on my knee, I can't believe how well and quickly I recovered. I am out of pain which is a relief and to be able to work without pain is amazing. I would just like to thank him and all the lovely staff that looked after me through all of these, they were all amazing.
