After a broken hip and fixation with screws, I developed secondary arthritis. Mr Atrey gave me a minimally invasive hip replacement. I am now completely pain free. I can play sport and have my quality of life back to normal. Thank you.

I have suffered from severe arthritis of both hips for some years. It got so bad I needed a replacement and was referred to see Mr Atrey. He replaced both hips with his mini hip replacement with a 3 month gap between operations. I am now pain free. I can cycle and play with my children again. I feel 20 years younger

Mr Atrey gave me a hip replacement with his enhanced recovery programme. I was out of hospital in 2 days. I got rid of my sticks in a fortnight and played my first round of golf in 3 years after 2 months.
