I had a partial knee replacement on my right at the Hampshire Clinic in Basingstoke on 22nd February 2017. Before the operation I had been in quite significant pain, was struggling to sleep and taking lots of pain killers.
I was driving and fully mobile without any crutches within 6 weeks and quickly started to build up the time I could spend walking. I was particularly pleased to be able to test out my knee on the dance floor when my daughter got married last July – I had a wonderful time and danced the night away with the other guest, easily out-dancing my teenage sons! The only lingering side effect was a numbness around the knee itself which persisted for quite a few months but is now completely back to normal. 1 year post op I have no pain at all in the right knee and can comfortably walk the dog for at least 2 hours. I know my left knee is heading in the same direction but, when the time is right, I’ll feel very confident of doing the same again.
My treatment has been outstanding all round and I’m extremely grateful to the whole team involved. It goes without saying that I am extremely grateful to Professor Wilson for all his hard work on my behalf and I’m very glad that he recommended we stay locally for 2 weeks to access the excellent after care and expertise on offer.
Although early days, it appears that my operation has been a great success. I would certainly return to Prof. Wilson without hesitation, if the need arises in the future. Based on my own experience, I would recommend unreservedly Prof. Wilson and his team. For me, they did a great job.
Having had a terrible time over the years trying to get my knee fixed, coming to Hampshire clinic was such a different welcome experience. Nothing was left uncovered by Mr Wilson and his team. Everything was explained to me and what the outcome would be. Having had the total knee replacement 18 months ago now it’s been a real life changer. I could not thank them enough.
Mr Wilson performed a very sucessful partial knee replacement for me in 2017. The whole process went according to plan and was smooth and efficient. As advised, I used the GameReady machine to aid my recovery, this was amazing and helped so much with the pain that I only needed to take paracetamol after the first couple of days. My recovery was swift and I now have no pain and no restricted movement in my knee. Thank you for your care, I would highly recommend Mr Wilson.
Having suffered for over a year or more from knee and hip pains limiting my ability to walk, my doctor had given up and, at our request, referred me to Professor Wilson. Following injection treatment which had little effect I agreed to keyhole surgery for an arthroscopy. After the operation, I walked out of hospital with knee and hip free of pain. A month has passed and there has been no re-occurrence of the original symptoms.
My husband had previously undergone a very similar keyhole operation, over two years ago, also performed by Professor Wilson with excellent results.
We wish to offer our very grateful thanks to Professor Wilson.
Professor Adrian Wilson may recall operating on my son, Rowan Dennett in August 2016.
Rowan is now studying ACL injuries in science at high school and is taking his video of the surgery into school.
This prompted me to email and say that Rowan has successfully returned to swimming last autumn and ball sports in December and is now back to playing tennis (county level) and cricket competitively and is also just starting his training for gold level life saving award with the Royal Life Saving Society. It’s now impossible to tell that he ever injured his knee.
