Knee and hip replacements
are major surgery so be sure you go for a skilled
surgeon who is experienced at performing these
When faced with the need to choose a surgeon for
your joint replacement, it can be overwhelming.
How do you choose? How do you know?
You might ask friends, family, your GP or the
local NHS hospital who will say to you “Mr
X is highly/well respected in our area”
or “Mr X is the ‘top’ surgeon”.
You might ask and be told by others who had Mr
X do their hip/knee and were delighted and found
him “approachable, understanding and such
a nice person”.
