“Mr. Culpan is a highly regarded and skilled surgeon who managed my hip replacement with complete success. He was accessible, highly competent, and professional. He and his team gave me complete confidence in the procedure and recovery, and I am very pleased with the result.”Sir Tom JonesSinger

Booking and Communication
I was impressed with the communication and ease of booking appointments that I received. Very professional and courteous.
I have nothing but the utmost respect for my surgeon Paul Culpan. He talked me through the whole process from the initial consultation to my recovery. Paul is obviously a very skilled surgeon and he is also a nice guy.
I summited Mount Elbrus (the highest peak in Europe and one of the Seven Summits) on 24th July 2017, exactly 9 months after my operation.

Booking and Communication
I received nothing but the utmost care and personal attention from Mr Paul Culpan’s support team including meticulous communication not only with me but, crucially, between office and vital pre-operative/assessment departments: appointments were followed up, ‘bespoke’ needs or requests always considered and accommodated as best possible.
I owe my new lease-of-life to Mr Paul Culpan: after 2 hip replacements within 4 months, I am pain-free and have regained fullest mobility! Mr Culpan’s magisterial surgical skills and judgement guaranteed me arguably the best hip component (SYMBIOS), the smallest incisions, the finest pain-management (pain-free at all times both in hospital and at home) and the shortest possible recovery period (walking without crutches within 2 weeks).
Moreover, Mr Culpan’s clear and direct explanations, his sympathetic understanding and graciousness helped me overcome both the initial shock of my diagnosis, as well as my fear of the whole procedure.
I am hugely grateful to Mr Culpan and, as a token of my thanks, would be happy to talk to and reassure any fellow hip-patient.

immediately had an exact understanding of my case and gave me confidence to go ahead with surgery which I did not consider an option at that point of time. I was amazed how quickly I recovered from my two hip surgeries within 4 months by Paul using the most progressive surgical techniques. I was able to walk without crutches 18 hours after surgery and 2,5 weeks after my Total Hip Replacement I could go on a walk for 4,5k!
Outstanding medical excellence combined with huge passion and compassion!

When it got to the stage when I was having difficulty walking, let alone my usual gym classes, I needed to do something as I recognised my life was being impacted. I was continually experiencing pain and unable to do the things I wanted to do. I therefore opted for a replacement knee. To be fair, I didn’t find the surgery the most comfortable procedure, but with the right surgeon, pain management, care, physio and attitude, it is totally bearable.
Recovery can take a while, but I am so pleased, and delighted with the results it was all worth it. I’m now enjoying life again. After four months, I was cycling up mountains and walked down them again. Delighted too that I was passed as fit to ski at around five month stage. I have no regrets.
I first saw a surgeon in May 2018 with regard to a hip replacement operation but foolishly decided not to go ahead with the procedure at that time. Things got worse and the pain of walking any distance became so acute that in Dec 2018 after a recommendation I saw Mr. Steven Millington. I found his manner friendly and helpful and he went through the whole procedure pointing out not only the plus but negative sides of surgery.
In the February 2019 I had the operation with the London Bridge hospital theatre staff making the whole pre-op business very relaxed and calming. The hip replacement was a complete success and I was able to move painlessly less than twenty-four after surgery and within four days needed only one forearm crutch to safely get around. Within three weeks I could walk without a crutch and unlike before the operation actually looked forward to walking although I’m aware the muscles are not yet up to strength. Milestones along the way were walking up stairs as normal, being able to put socks on unaided and cutting my toenails. Little things but they meant a lot as signs of recovery
I’m most grateful to Mr. Millington for the first class job he’s done in giving me back the pain free mobility I had lost due to arthritis. My experience has been a positive one throughout and I can only thank my surgeon and his team for the work they’ve done.

Miss Arshad displayed a reluctance to operate unless she was convinced it was necessary. As the symptoms progressed, she agreed a partial knee replacement was the most effective way of curing the problem. She was always solicitous and considerate, while sticking to her view that the operation might not be as successful as the one on the other knee. Only as the symptoms deteriorated did she change her mind.
The operation seemed to go fine (I was unaware!). When I recovered consciousness, I felt "looked after" in the recovery room. Subsequent attention in the Clinic was good. Physio started immediately and was very effective.
Sagittal Band Reconstructive Surgery - A success story
Mr. Edwards treated me for a sports injury to my right hand.
The injury required a minor day surgery to repair the ligaments, the procedure was a Sagittal band reconstruction.
I had a very positive experience over all. The hospital facilities & staff were top notch. Mr. Edwards provided excellent care. He very clearly explained exactly what the procedure was, associated risks & possible outcomes, as well as what to expect with regards to recover time & post-op rehab exercises (physio / hand therapy).
I felt very well informed with the all my decisions, and I felt comfortable & reassured throughout the whole process.
I am now 7 weeks into recover from the procedure & very pleased with how everything has gone so far.
