I had been suffering with pain in both knees for a number of years. My GP offered injections but never offered to refer me to a consultant. I managed to get an appointment with a young doctor who was doing his GP stint at my surgery and persuaded him to refer me privately to a consultant. He looked online and found “The Knee Group “ I obtained an appointment with Professor Chapman-Sheath at the Nuffield on 25th May 2021 and after initial physical inspection he arranged for me to have Xray’s of both knees whilst at the hospital. Approximately 30 minutes later he was able to show me that I had bone on bone contact in both knees. Prof Chapman-Sheath then clearly explained the various options (he was very easy to talk too) and it was decided the left knee was the priority and a Persona Medial Congruent total replacement was recommended. Due to Covid and the extended NHS waiting list, having no medical insurance, I agreed to having the treatment privately on a self-funding basis. His Secretary Suzette contacted me and said that his next available operating list at the Nuffield was in July, however if I was happy to use The Spire at Southampton, I could go on his list on Thursday 24th June. The operation went well. I was up on my legs on the Friday morning, descending and ascending stairs on Saturday Morning. I was able to go home in the afternoon to my apartment which is on the 1st floor climbing the 33 steps reasonable easily. 6 weeks later Professor Chapman-Sheath had arranged a review at the Spire, by which time was able to walk without the need of cutches with just a stick for security. I was so pleased with the result and treatment that I had received, I decided to have the other knee replaced by Professor Chapman-Sheath in March this year. 9 weeks later I am able to walk 2-3 km daily, climb stairs without the aid of a stick with minimal pain. Professor Chapman-Sheath suggested that it would be more beneficial for me to have physiotherapy locally in Andover, thus saving 2 hours driving each time. I received a cost reduction from the Spire on the two operations that paid for my local private physiotherapy. I would have no reservation in recommending Professor Chapman-Sheath

The consultation was clear, concise, informative. What was most beneficial was having a physical visual aid to observe and understand what was being explained at the time. I explained my future needs, expectations and concerns these were met with understanding and reassurances were given.

Professor Chapman-Sheath was fantastic from start to finish when it came to my knee problem and surgery. He explains everything in great detail but easy to understand. My physio Stephanie Kane is also really good as I thought I was struggling with my recovery at first but she gave me some really good exercises and now my knee is improving loads

I am so pleased that I chose Professor Chapman-Sheath for my knee replacement surgery. He put me at ease from the moment I met him with his gentle manner and expert knowledge. He was very good at explaining what was causing the pain in my knees and also the options for treatment. My initial consultation with the Professor, in which he listened carefully to my concerns, gave me the confidence to move forward with the treatment in the knowledge that I was in good hands. On the day of my surgery at the Nuffield Health Wessex Hospital in Southampton, Professor Chapman Sheath, and everyone on his team, offered excellent care before during and after the operation. I also felt very encouraged by Professor Chapman-Sheath's personal check-in visits on the ward to see how I was getting on following the surgery. It is now 5 weeks since my surgery and I couldn't be happier with the outcome. The comprehensive advice and information that I have been given throughout by Professor Chapman-Sheath, the hospital staff and the physiotherapy department has really supported my recovery very well.
