In August 2018 I had revision surgery for a ruptured distal bicep tendon with Professor Adam Watts. The previous surgery in February 2018 about 18 days after the rupture occurred with a different surgeon in the south of England where I live had failed. Worse, the surgeon initially tried to fob me off, telling me the surgery had been successful but that he couldn’t account for why the bicep had not been pulled back in to position (making it obvious the surgery had been unsuccessful). He had no constructive suggestions on how to proceed. This was through private healthcare and left me frustrated, depressed and stressed. It was therefore a huge relief to locate Adam. He pointed out the risks associated with revision surgery and the prognosis. Everything he said to me has come to pass, i.e. I should experience no pain, swelling or bruising from the surgery (unlike the first surgery) the bicep may not regain exactly the same profile but would get back to full strength. Although of mature years (65) when I had the surgery, I consider myself a sportsperson and keep fit doing a fairly serious work out in the gym as well as other physical activities. After physiotherapy and within about 6 months of the surgery I was back to full strength doing the same reps of chins and curls etc. as I had pre the rupture. Although the bicep profile as predicted is slightly different (a little shorter) to what it had been, you would have to look twice to notice and it’s really not an issue. Living in the south east of England it was a very long journey to Wilmslow (3 actually for the initial consultation, surgery and post surgery review) but totally worthwhile. From the first contact with the Practice Manager right through to the surgery and aftercare the experience was a very positive one and I would say to anyone who finds themselves with a similar injury, regardless of where you are, if you value your body and want the best recovery you can get, Professor Watts should be your first choice.

5⭐️ Treatment from a 5⭐️ Consultant. Having been under Proff Watts care for several years and having several bouts of surgery he is the most knowledgable caring and understanding consultant I have ever seen. He has an amazing bedside manner and no problem is too small. The four hour round trip every time is definitely worth it. He always manages to get the different tests done in one visit. I can’t thank him enough for the care he has given and continues to give me. I would not go anywhere else. Special thanks to his secretary Jade too who is always there at the end of the phone. Thank you Adam I wouldn’t trust anyone else with my care .

Professor Adam Watts is a fantastic consultant. From the minute I stepped into his room he made me feel at ease. His obvious intelligence and wisdom also shone through. He was very detailed and very informative of my symptoms and treatment. Adam also ensured that I had all the information in relation to the treatment and that I fully understood what he was saying. I believe this is a very important sign of a great consultant. I came out of the consultation with a clear plan and a clear understanding of the condition.

Professor Adam Watts was an exceptionally good surgeon with a lovely, professional manner. My Carpal Tunnel op. has been totally successful, hardly resulting in any type of scar. I am delighted

I would like to thank Mr Watts immensely for his care, compassion and above all his skill in replacing my elbow which was totally arthritic due to an accident 10 years ago. Mr Watts is a credit to his profession.
