"It is no exaggeration to say that the resurfacing procedures you have carried out on both my knees have totally transformed my life. From hardly being able to walk 500 metres, I am now able to walk 5000 metres ++ with no issues"
"Beyond the practical outcomes David, your whole approach to me as a patient has been just fantastic. Always willing to answer my myriad of questions and queries, explaining everything in clear and practical terms (always with a good sprinkling of humour too!) "
"It is coming up for a year since you gave me a partial relining of my right knee. You were very pleased with the outcome when you signed me off earlier this year and I just wanted to let you know what a success it has been. For the first time in over three years I am no longer in any pain or discomfort, I have full mobility think nothing of going up and down stairs, running for a bus or up and down escalators and best of all I am back on the tennis courts and playing as well ( well almost ) as I did 5 years ago. I don't think about my knees at all now which is wonderful and it has made feel much younger, whereas before I thought I was looking into less mobility as the years go by. So just to say an enormous thank you."
"Once again thanks to your expert repairs on my knee, I have done great things this year. The best was a two week enduro motorcycle expedition across the Indian Himalayas on a Royal Enfield!!!
Me and the knee stood up brilliantly"
" I could not let the year pass without expressing my sincere thanks to you and your team following my two knee replacements.
I am delighted to confirm that these successful operations have really given me a new lease of life as a direct result of your expert care and professional attention. My day to day mobility has been significantly enhanced and I am able to enjoy my retirement to the full.
" Words cannot express how grateful I am to Professor Barrett for his care and wonderful skill. I intend to grab the chance of a restored active life, with both hands!"
" I have several friends who have been putting off knee treatments due to pre-conceived ideas of the pain and slow recovery involved, and if I can do anything to destroy these ideas and to encourage people to have the op and thus to retain an active lifestyle please feel free to quote my experience."
"The operations that Professor Barrett and his team carried out have transformed my life, there is a future! I wish to bring to your attention the professionalism of all who looked after me during my stay at Spire."
"My most fulsome praise is, however reserved for Professor Barrett, the work he is doing is truly astonishing and I hope it is getting the publicity it deserves."
" I've been meaning to drop you a line for sometime to update you on the remarkable change the surgery you did has had on my life. I'm not sure how often you get to hear how you change people's lives and I wanted personally to express my sincere thanks for what you have done"
" Just to let you know that I have recently returned from a week's windsurfing on the Red Sea; I joined a group of chaps half my age on a course, and the knee surpassed all my expectations. We were in, on (and in my case) often under the water for five or six hours a day with no ill effects. I am very grateful to you for making it possible - no video sadly, but hopefully a couple of photos to follow!"
" Am in South Africa now and played 18 holes of golf (but using a cart) and absolutely no negative reaction on the knee"
