From start to finish the whole process was incredibly efficient from first appointment to having my frozen shoulder surgery the following week (quick even with private cover), follow up physio was great and sign off from surgeon was a great relief after suffering for eight months. Great relief to be pain free.
Thank you once again for your work in getting me back to full fitness. As a professional pilot and someone who enjoys all manner of sport my health and fitness are vital. Therefore, a shoulder dislocation and fracture incurred whilst biking was a major concern to me. I was, however, very fortunate to have been treated by Mr Brownlow who provided outstanding care throughout my treatment and recovery. I firmly believe that his surgical skill and post operative advice allowed me to make a speedy return to work and resume all the activities I enjoy. Many thanks again!
I am just reading through my very comprehensive and helpful notes relating to my operation yesterday and realise how fortunate I am to be on the Circle's list of NHS patients. My experience yesterday couldn't have been any better with everything thought of and all the staff so kind and informative and particularly Mr. Brownlow and all his team. It's up to me now to carry out all their follow up instructions to make sure I achieve the best outcome I can from all their efforts!

Arthroscopic Subacromial Decompression
I consider myself to be a 'seasoned operation goer' having had 21 ops, on various parts of my body, over the last 30 years - So as a British Sign Language Interpreter, specialising in Musical Theatre and therefore heavily reliant on having healthy shoulders, you can imagine how thrilled I was to learn that my left shoulder needed surgery! In the past I have had various dodgy dealings with hospitals ranging from rogue physios who have given me the wrong information pre and post op, consultations with surgeons who I simply couldn't understand, to having procedures that I didn't ever actually need! These things not only made me dubious of surgical intervention, they made me terrified - that is until I met Mr Brownlow. There really are not enough words of praise to write here, but suffice to say he is one of the most gentle men I have met to date in any capacity. From my first consultation with him I understood exactly what was wrong with me and why, I knew what was going to happen in theatre and exactly what to expect afterwards, how long my recovery time would be and the long term prognosis for my shoulder. I would say that being made to feel at ease and having a sense of trust are the most important elements of going in to hospital, whether that be for a consultation, a scan, an injection or an operation, and that is exactly how I have felt with Mr Brownlow. I am currently waiting for the same operation for my right shoulder (my middle name is "Lucky" by the way) but rather than the fear and trepidation I have had in the past, I am looking forward to another seamless procedure performed by Mr Brownlow followed by being pain free. As you may be able to tell, I cannot recommend him highly
Thought I would give you an update – I am very pleased with your attention to my shoulder which you said ‘was in a mess’. At least you now know that I was not malingering. I'm carrying on with the physio’s exercises and feel that I’m well and truly on the mend. There is still some discomfort in the forearm which I am sure will improve as long as I don’t abuse it. This update is just an excuse to say ‘Thank you so much to you and all your team’ On every front I have nothing but the highest praise’'.
