Mr Adrian Fairbank is a Consultant Orthopedic Surgeon and knee specialist, He performs adolescent and adult knee surgery to relieve patients of knee pain. His expertise covers meniscus tears, articular cartilage injury, ACL reconstruction, arthroscopic surgery, unicompartmental (partial) knee arthroplasty and total knee replacement.
Adrian Fairbank is definitely a five star surgeon in every way and has looked after both my knees for many years with great success until one finally bit the bullet! From the initial diagnosis to my final six month sign off appointment this week, he has been with me every step of the way. I had complete trust in him and the fact that I have come out of my knee replacement operation not only alive, but much better off is testament to his wonderful treatment! I would 100% recommend him to anyone even thinking of taking the step to have knee replacement surgery. He does not ever underestimate the pain and trauma that this operation can cause and does everything in his power, together with his team, to ensure that everything goes as smoothly as possible - which it did. I would definitely go back and have the other knee replaced by him - fortunately he has said that this is most likely not to ever be necessary! A complete professional with a great sense of charm and humour - what more can you ask for?
I was recommended to Adrian Fairbank by a former patient of his and I could not be happier with the outcome of my double knee replacement surgery. It appears not many surgeons have the courage or conviction to do both knees at the same time but Mr Fairbank is not like other surgeons in that respect. In addition, he is a consummate professional, clear, concise, honest and dedicated to his patients’ wellbeing both in terms of their orthopaedic requirements as well as, in my case, the impact of diabetes on a major surgical event. My wife and I both felt we were a team together with Mr Fairbank throughout the time immediately after the operation and over the recovery months that followed. It is now one year on and I haven’t looked back, living for the first in many years with no pain in my knees and enjoying an active and fulfilling life. Mr Fairbank has also performed a meniscus operation on my 16 year old son and I would recommend him to treat both young and old alike. He treated my son with respect and understanding ensuring he understood the operation fully as well as the implications and recovery timescales.
I’d been too scared to seek help for my painful knee, until a medic friend took me to one side and said I had to seek Mr Fairbank’s opinion, as he’s by far the best knee expert and orthopaedic surgeon anywhere. I duly did, and Mr Fairbank immediately put me at ease, explained very clearly what was wrong and what he needed to do to make my knee better. Having never had any surgery before this, I was incredibly nervous, but felt reassured that I was in very good hands. Mr Fairbank and his team at Parkside were absolutely wonderful and I felt very well cared for. Best of all, my knee was pain free immediately I came round from the anaesthetic. The aftercare has been thorough and very helpful, and Mr Fairbank’s patient manager at Parkside, Jessica, is very efficient and friendly - I so wish I’d gone along sooner. Mr Fairbank is a true gentleman. Not only is he a superb practitioner, he has a gentle, calm and understanding manner and a good sense of humour. I can’t recommend him highly enough.
Mr Fairbank is excellent; clear & thorough diagnosis, careful explanation of meaning of symptoms & all treatment options. Best of all brilliant in operating theatre! Supported by a first class team and pleasant setting in Wimbledon Clinics. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone with a knee injury.
I first met Mr Fairbank 9 years ago and was in total agony after my first appointment although still in agony I felt that I knew what was wrong and that he could fix my problem and he made me feel relaxed about having an arthroscopy Since then I have had a total knee and another arthroscopy and wouldn’t go anywhere else I am always telling people how wonderful he is his whole demeanour and bedside manner puts you at ease
