“My experience with Mr Weitzel had been excellent from start to finish. I had bad knees for years and had seen a couple of consultants in the past. with no definitive solution. Mr Weitzel explained MRI results in details with recommendation of surgery. I went through the surgery on both my knees and am recovering well. At all stages I was kept informed and he explained to me complex things in simple terms and drawings. Surgery went well and the damage to both menisci (complex tears) have been repaired. I would highly recommend Mr Weitzel for knee problems based on my experience. “

    Very knowledgeable, friendly and professional. I felt at ease throughout the whole process, from consultation, operation to after care. I am extremely happy with the results of my operation and would like to thank Mr Stefan Weitzel once again! (and his assistant Laura who was always there to help answer any questions via the phone or email). I would highly recommend Mr Stefan Weitzel.

    Mr Weitzel was excellent pre and post ankle replacement operation and his aftercare is splendid. He has followed my progress with care. Mr Weitzel has now operated on this same ankle three times previously to keep it going until it finally needed replacing. Every experience has been as excellent as it could be under the circumstances. He has made himself available throughout the Covid pandemic and is an absolute star. I will definitely be returning to Mr Weitzel as and when my other ankle starts deteriorating as it probably will.

    "I have known Mr Weitzel for many years since our training days. He is highly regarded in his field and offers his patients many unique procedures including ankle replacements. He has extensive experience in lower limb surgery but also takes a very measured approach to exhausting conservative options before considering surgery. I highly recommend Stefan as an excellent surgeon and as a doctor who very much takes care of his patients."
