I have been seen by Mr Carrothers for 7 years now since a motorbike accident. I have now had 10 operations, the most recent at the Spire Cambridge. All the others have been at Addenbrookes Hospital. I cannot recommend Mr Carrothers highly enough. Out of all the consultants I have seen over the years he has always been there when I have needed him and tells you the truth about what can be done in a most caring way. He is empathetic and your best interests are always at the forefront of any treatment plan. I would trust him with any decision and would have no hesitation in recommending him to family and friends.
I had probably the best experience of the NHS under this consultant. Mr Carrothers listened and diagnosed perfectly my problem. I was seen quickly and the operation was a complete success. I hope that if and when the time comes for a replacement kneecap this gentleman is available to preform the procedure.
I couldn't wish better from any point of view. Extremely satisfied from begining till end! I had a knee arthroscopic surgery, on that day I was able to stend on my feet! After 3 days I walked as nothing happened! I might need the same surgery on my right leg as well. So I'll go back without hasitation. Big thank you to Carol also!
