1st class, amazing surgeon. Highly recommend Mr Mellor.
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.
I recovered very well from my knee operation, the operation and care was first class.
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.
Many thanks for my 6th hip replacement you carried out a few years ago. I am so lucky to be back working in my garden, waking and enjoying life to the full.
I can't thank you enough for your excellent care and dedication.

Eight weeks ago I underwent revision hip surgery by orthopaedic surgeon Mr Simon Mellor. My appreciation and thanks to Mr Mellor for his continual care, courtesy and patience in listening to and answering my many questions and his detailed explanation of the procedure prior to surgery. I am now on the way to once again having a functional hip.
