I had a partial knee replacement in November. I saw Mr. Spiegelberg through an NHS referral after a painful year of trying to get through the system, and happily got an instant diagnosis. His manner gave me real confidence and consequently I decided it had to be done as soon as possible. I had a date for the following week and it was the best decision I made. No pain, no scar and very happy. I cannot recommend this surgeon highly enough.

Along with other reviewers I have no hesitation in recommending Mr Spiegleberg. Following a very (covid) delayed NHS x-ray, and a frank chat with my doctor, I researched hip replacement consultants and decided Mr Spiegleberg had the experience, research background, competence and empathy reviews which would make me feel relaxed and comfortable with the procedure. Luckily I was able to get an initial appointment on 7 October 2020 and, with all my questions answered, had a complete hip replacement on 3 November. I was pleased with both the local anaesthesia and posterior incision decisions and as others have commented my recovery was very quick. I didn't need pain relief on release from Bushey Spire Hospital, was able to walk 5 miles and drive comfortably within 3 weeks. I also found the team - Kirrily and the anaesthetist Dr Raj Shah relaxed, supportive and helpful.

Mr. Spiegelberg was recommended to me by a friend who'd had a hip replacement procedure done by him at St. Albans City Hospital in August 2019. I had total confidence in Mr. S. before I even met him 'cos I Googled his name first and read about him. Only to be re-enforced once we'd met. The Covid situation meant being on an NHS waiting list for (possibly) a year or more, so I decided to go private due to my increasingly uncomfortable right hip. That turned out to be a very good decision and I was very satisfied with my treatment at the Spire Bushey Hospital. Mr. S. is a 'master' of his 'craft' and a jolly nice chap. Have no hesitation in requesting Mr. S to carry out your hip or knee work....in fact 'demand' him! It really is worth every penny!

I was at my lowest ebb when I visited Mr Spiegelberg. Like many other people covid had ensured that there would be no NHS operations so we had to make the decision to self pay out of our savings and go private. I was so glad I did. I was given a date ten days after my phone call and was operated on at the Spire Bushey. I am 74 and have never been in hospital till then. He was absolutely wonderful, put me at my ease, gave me such confidence in the outcome. I had a hip replacement and from the first morning I had minimum pain and the neatest scar. Not only did I get my mobility back but also my mental well being. Thankyou so much.

First impression of Mr Ben Spiegelberg was youthful energy, enthusiasm, cheerfulness and simultaneously of mature competence, confidence and experience. The letters after his name confirmed this confidence! My confidence on meeting for initial diagnosis led me to ask for him and only him to complete left hip operation. Operation after effects were successful as predicted, as were recent consultations. Many thanks.
