Mr Young performed total knee replacement on both my left and right knees. From the consultations to the surgery to the aftercare every aspect of my treatment was exemplary. It is now 4 months since my second surgery and I am able to walk without pain and for increasing distances. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Mr Young.

Within 10 minutes of meeting Mr Young he had correctly assessed how important my sport was to me. Despite my age, he took on the challenge to get me back playing again – pain free. Mr Young was very clear in his explanation of all my options, the pros and cons, and the probable outcomes. All the time I felt that he was really relating to my personal circumstances and not just ‘reeling off’ a set speech. In my case, he proposed a relatively new, non-invasive, non-surgical procedure, which was very low risk. He was extremely honest in that there was not enough data to show whether it would work, and it had not been around long enough to know how long it lasts. I had 2 injections about a month apart. They were carried out by Mr Young’s radiographer as they were done under ultrasound guidance, but on both occasions, Mr Young was present, overseeing the procedure and ensuring my comfort. I was slightly sceptical but within 2 weeks of the first injection my knee, which had a life time of twisting and turning, two previous arthroscopies, and now arthritis, was actually diminishing in pain. A month after the 2nd injection I was back playing competitive hockey with no pain during the game, or afterwards. Throughout the process Mr Young always made time fully explain the problem, the possible courses of action and to answer questions. 8 months down the line, although lockdown has prevented competitive play, there are no signs of the pain returning. Will definitely be back to have the other knee done!

I was highly impressed and delighted with all aspects of my care. I received clear advice prior to my operation and was completely reassured by Mr Young's professionalism and care. The operation was a great success and again Mr Young and his team treated me with understanding and support. Thank you.

I had 2 surgeries last year performed by Mr Young on my right knee and on both occasions I could not fault the care and attention I received from him . Both preop and post op information from him was really helpful and the final results have been excellent. I am back to walking as far as allowed every day during this difficult time and gardening with no problems. . The physio department looked after me brilliantly and Mr Young's secretary, Tess, was extremely helpful when I had to postpone my second operation for a month. She rang several times post op to see how I was progressing, and I found this very supportive. I definitely recommend Mr Young.

I am not given to writing reviews however, as I mentioned during my last appointment with you, I cannot praise you enough for the thoroughly professional and caring manner that you conducted not only my knee replacement operation but also pre and post operation care. A NHS KIMS Hospital Patient
