I have been in the care of Mr Spiegelberg for a couple of years initially for steroid injections, then waiting for operations which due to reasons beyond our control had to be cancelled. Initially when the operation was first put through funding was refused by 'the powers that be'. Mr Spiegelberg was very good in writing supportive letters to try and reverse this decision. Eventually a date was set but again things were postponed on a number of occasions for different reason, the final ones being COVID. However, throughout all of this I was kept informed and felt that Mr Spiegelberg was very much on my side and keen to get me on the list. When the procedure did take place Mr Spiegelberg explained exactly what was going to happen and what the outcomes were likely to be. The operation went extremely well and it was interesting to be 'awake' during the time as I had an spinal anaesthetic. Recovery has been very good and after six weeks I was able to ride my indoor exercise bike and have now begun cycling outside. Important to do your exercises!! I have been most impressed with the care I have received throughout the whole time and the way I have been kept informed. Mr Spiegelberg has an excellent manner and is more than happy to spend time to ensure things are understood. I have no worries in recommending him.

Each consultation with Mr Spiegelberg and indeed his overall care whilst I had full knee replacement surgery was extremely helpful and any questions I had he answered in a knowledgeable yet easily understandable manner.

My mother have been having knee pains for over a year and was really struggling to walk. She is not from the UK and doesn't speak good English. I went with her to meet Mr Spiegelberg for a consultation in August this year. He explained all the pros and cons of the knee replacement surgery, patiently answered all the questions from me and my mother (and we had a lot of them!) and was putting extra effort to speak to my mother slowly so that she understood him. After the consultation we felt very confident and decided to go ahead with the surgery. My mother had operation end of September - it went flawlessly and Mr Spiegelberg was there every day during her stay in hospital to check up on her, answer all the questions and ease her concerns. Due to Covid restrictions I wasn't able to visit. He made and extra effort of calling me on the phone and checking if my mother understood everything he said and answer my questions too. He gave her confidence in every step of recovery ever since. 6 weeks after surgery my mother is pain free and walks like she haven't for years. She uses cane as a precaution but quite often even forgets about it. We are both extremely happy with the outcome and every single step of our journey. Mr Spiegelberg is a consultant who is happy to answer any questions, puts you at ease and gives you confidence. We are very grateful Mr Ben Spiegelberg was my mother's consultant and can't recommend him highly enough.

Recently had a hip replacement op by Mr Spiegelberg. My first experience of private healthcare & could not have been more positive. From start to discharge the process was very smooth & professional. I had confidence in Mr Spiegelberg & I felt well supported by him, & his team, througout. He was clear in explaining what he would be doing & in answering all my queries. I would certainly recommend him to anyone I knew who was considering this type of surgery.
