    I was initially apprehensive about surgery but following my first consultation with Mr.Matthews, who was easy to communicate with, and who explained in much detail what would be involved, I had every confidence in his professional ability. Consequently, I have had both shoulder joints replaced by Mr. Matthews and both operations have been successful.
