“I just finished my follow up with Dr Newman after my meniscus knee surgery, I just wanted to pass on that I thought Dr Newman was absolutely first rate and I received brilliant care. He was clear, friendly and answered all my questions, really putting my mind at ease. I’d been referred to Dr Newman after initially becoming dissatisfied with my previous surgeon and personally I found Dr Newman streets ahead. I can’t thank Dr Newman and his team enough for the care I received and the end result, which ultimately worked out exactly as hoped. Even though I don’t wish a similar injury on anyone, I’d be the first to recommend Dr Newman and team.“

    Dear Mr Newman and Team, as I did not get to see you personally at the hip clinic on Tuesday. I am writing to thank you and your team for giving up your Saturday to give me a new hip. It has given me my life back and I am very grateful for the care I received.

    Dear Simon, I attended your discharge clinic this morning... 6 weeks after you performed a total hip replacement on me. I have to report that my recovery from the operation... and the success of it... can only be described as miraculous. My GP was astonished when I walked into his surgery after just 4 weeks and exclaimed that most people do not reach that condition after 4 months. Indeed, I have been walking totally unaided... and without painkillers since 1 week after the operation and my leg is now totally normal and pain-free. I am virtually unaware that I have had such a serious operation such a short time ago. I just don't know how I can thank you enough and express my admiration for your work. Thank you so much.

    Simon is a highly respected surgeon. From an early stage Simon showed himself to be a safe and effective clinician. This is evidenced by his elective practice. As a young adult hip specialist he is a fantastic communicator and makes sure that his patients are fully understanding of all the management options available for their particular condition.
