I initially went to see Dan Garbutt after referral through my private medical insurance, due to persistent hip pain and for a few months Dan worked very hard on improving my mobility. Unfortunately, the pain persisted and Dan advised me to contact Mr Jon Conroy for further guidance, where I was advised that I needed to have surgery on both hips. Each operation went very smoothly and Dan helped me through the early stages of my rehabilitation.
Dan was very knowledgeable about my rehabilitation requirements and from having my first hip replacement surgery in December 2020 and second hip surgery in March this year, my recovery has been much faster than expected. I was having weekly physical training sessions with Dave Bown only seven weeks after my second op and in such a relatively short period of time started to feel more mobile and much stronger. I had 9 weeks with Dave and really enjoyed the sessions. Dave made the sessions interesting and worthwhile, and I felt I was getting real benefit from the exercises and achieving more challenging activities each week.
I feel I am now getting back to normal following the surgery and a big part of that has been the help given during my rehabilitation by both Dan and Dave and I cannot thank them enough for their efforts. They’re both great personalities and I’ll actually quite miss the weekly sessions I had with them.
