“Dr/Professor Lee was fantastic. I went to see him over some ACL concerns as I have had surgery on my knee prior and wanted to know what the pain was that I was feeling and why. He was welcoming from the get go, listened while I went through the pains and gave a bit of background on the surgeries and then gave really great information about why I was feeling the pain and how to decrease it for the future. He then proceeded to do a stress test with my knee and try to indicate where the source of pain was exactly coming from. He then reassured me that the surgery was expertly completed and I shouldn't have any worries about the stability of my knee. He also recommended to me to a great physiotherapist where I further eliminated the pain I was feeling. Professor Lee was brilliant, nice, and very reassuring throughout our whole experience. Highly recommend seeing him if you have any problems where you will be waiting a while with the NHS or especially with knee related problems/injuries. “

    Thorough, Professional but spent time ensuring that I totally understood. Was realistic with the new knee's capabilities and like his analogy that its like a new car tyre - if you abuse it it wears out quicker! . Wish Id had it done sooner!

    I have ruptured my Achilles tendon and prof have repaired it for me, can't believe how quick it was. Prof has explained to me about his new technique for repair and it was very successful. Can't wait to start my rehab now. I am so glad that I have it operated on by Prof, it makes perfect sense.
