Thank you so very much for performing a successful replacement of my knee. I am now back to normal (after only 6 weeks!)

Mrs C.T

Can I also just ask you to pass onto Mr Pavlou my sincerest thanks. This weekend I took part in a 10mile road race, the longest distance race I have run since last year and I was pain free during and after the event. I genuinely didn’t think I would be able to do this again so I am very grateful for the treatment.
