“I hope you are well during this strange time, unfortunately, I have not been able to get an x-ray done due to our hospital not doing any none essential tasks, I can, however, tell you my knee feels great I have regained almost full movement, can walk over an hour, cycle and work out on my cross trainer with no pain or niggles, if I end up with a day where I have gone over 15000 steps it's a little tiring but no pain. My local physio has also had to stop working, but I've been following a combination of his info and what you originally gave me.I'm really focused on next week (week 13) gentle return to running! Thanks again, so pleased with results so far “

I’m actually almost 100% back to normal, with no recent pain in my hip and almost no residual pain in my lower back, which has allowed me to return to work full time (with restrictions still in place on lifting patients and running). I’ve been attending weekly physiotherapy sessions until last week, when the physiotherapist said that I didn’t need to attend any further appointments as he was so pleased with my progress. I would like to thank Professor Ghoz again for all of his help - I am incredibly grateful and will happily recommend him to any friends and colleagues with similar orthopaedic problems!

Mr Ghoz performed two surgeries on my damaged Knee, one to clean up the damaged ACL and bone and the second for the replacement ACL. I was always pleasantly welcomed by Mr Ghoz and his team and both surgeries were performed flawlessly with no issues or unmentioned side affects. He was very open and clear about the self responsibility for physio and I fully recovered in well under the prescribed time for each operation. I saw Mr Ghoz multiple times before, between and after the operations and I was always made to feel welcome and relaxed. If i ever need another Orthopedic surgeon I will definitely return to see Mr Ghoz,

I was suffering for months with sciatica/nerve pain down my left leg, which meant that my diagnosis was complicated. Nothing was getting any better and I was in severe pain and not sleeping well. Poff Ghoz steered me through this difficult time and we decided together to go for the anterior hip replacement. My nerve pain is gone! And I am back to full fitness! I highly recommend Professor Ghoz! He is the man.

The knee has steadily improved over the week. I can now walk without any noticeable limp and going up stairs is nowhere near as difficult as it previously was. Going down stairs can be slightly problematical but once again my abilty to do so has improved greatly. The pain has also greatly diminished although when walking over rough or uneven ground I still get the odd twinge. When at rest I get virtually no pain. All in all I am very pleased with the outcome

I was ever so impressed with Prof gentle manner and calm but very thorough approach. Did full testing and demonstrated to me why the MRI is probably wrong! Also organised everything for me to get a proper one and explained he will try best not to operate which is refreshing from a surgeon. I feel really privilege for having had access to such extensive knowledge and feel much more assured even though it is not the outcome I wanted I know I am in good hands to have a resolution. Very happy with the holistic approach looking at rehabilitation and other prevention. Thank you!

Late Last year my prosthetic knee dislocated and chipped my Femur. I was admitted to hospital as an emergency and was told that I required an operation to correct the problem otherwise I would probably not walk again. The operation that was required was complicated and involved major reconstruction of the existing prosthetic knee thus saving the leg from amputation. I understand this was a ground breaking operation for Hinchingbrooke Hospital in Huntingdon and was performed by Mr Ali Ghoz of the orthopaedic Department. I am now well and truly recovering.
