What our patients say

I am now completely pain free. I have some loss of flexibility in the foot and ankle, however I am now walking extremely well. I cannot praise Mr. Brown and the Nuffield Health team highly enough. I would whole heartedly recommend.

Mrs A K


I came to Mr Clint after other specialists couldn’t explain the pain I had in my ankle which was interfering with my netball. He diagnosed the cause and after telescopic tendon surgery I am back playing pain free. They are ankle wizards!

Mrs B M


I suffered a freak  accident when my foot was crushed in a stirrup under the full weight of the horse. It was thought that amputation would be necessary, but they  reconstructed my foot and I was back riding within months of the accident pain free.
