Mr Richard Freeman
Written by a private patient

I had keyhole surgery to correct quite a painful bunion on my left foot in March 2020 before we went into lockdown. I went back to have the pin removed in Oct 2020 and have the bone of the joint shaved down a little more. Being a fitness professional I was anxious due to the horror stories I had heard and people advising me not to go ahead.
However, my experience with Mr Freeman reassured me that I had made the right decision. Mr Freeman is very experienced, skilled, attentive and reassuring. He listens to the patient and develops a rapport with them too. Lauren, his PA, is also super and really efficient.
The second operation, was such a quick recovery I walked out of the hospital that night. I must also add that we had an excellent anaesthetist for the October 20 surgery, Mr Perelo. I felt no nausea or ill affects after the anaesthetic.
I now have excellent flexibility in my left foot. I am even retraining my feet to run in barefoot shoes, which would not have been possible previously due to the pain in my first metatarsal.
Thank you Mr Freeman and team!
