I have been looking at ways to improve my knees and was interested in stem cells. I have been to a few so call ‘regenerative or stem cells clinics’ and always feel pressured to sign up for treatments that (at least for me) are not fully understood. I have heard about Prof Lee and his work with fat, so I went to meet him and see what is he got to say. Credit to Prof, from the moment that we met he was more concerned about my knees that closing me for treatment, what a nice doctor. We have talked about fat injection and he was open and honest about the limitations on the research and send me to a physiotherapist instead of give me the fat injection. It is only after physiotherapy he agree to treat me with fat injection. It has been 2 months since my Lipogems injection, I am completely pain free. Thank you Prof.

I had Lipogems in my knees with Prof and the surgery was as simple as he described, everything went well until Saturday evening. My knee was locked and I was worried, so I emailed the MSK team about this. And to my surprise, Prof Lee called me almost immediately, he put my worries at ease and my knee was completely fine in the morning. His team has been keeping in touch since and I am happy to say, it has not happened again and my knees are now pain free. Amazing treatment and great service. Thank you.

I have experienced excellent first-class treatment from initial consultation through surgery ( total hip replacement) Aftercare and consultation review at 8-week post-op nursing staff and the Physio team at BMI Lincoln have been amazed at my recovery which my partner and I both consider being miraculous. Professor Lee has my total admiration and I have a near scar to remind me of the hip problems which are now a distant memory almost 9 weeks after surgery. I was able to drive 10 days after the operation and I have been able to spend many enjoyable summer days working in the garden I have also been able to spend an hour on the tennis court( I have not been able to play for 4 years) I am looking forward to renewing my tennis membership in the very near future. In conclusion, I feel I owe so much to professor Lee and his team.

Professor Lee said he was happy with the op. My legs properly hurt for 2 days, but then that went away. I can get a 90 degree bend on both knees, with my left being a bit slower than the right. The physiolab machine is making a massive difference. I just feel really happy with everything, Professor is awesome, his team and all the staff at Lincoln BMI were great. Everything is positive.
