From my first meeting with Mr Makrides I felt comfortable discussing the issues with regard to my knee
From my first meeting with Mr Makrides I felt comfortable discussing the issues with regard to my knee. He listened to me and appeared to take account of the fact that both myself and my wife have clinical backgrounds. The discussion about the options for management was pitched at a level I understood. He was firm about his recommendations which gave me confidence. As far as I can tell, the procedure went well and 5 days post op I appear to be making a good recovery. We have arranged for my wife to see him for his advice about her painful hip.

My rate of recovery amazed my family and I.
The length of recovery from an operation was a primary concern to me, especially with my life and work commitments and so Mr Makrides took me through the Mako Robotic procedure. This approach offered me an opportunity to complete both hips simultaneously, reducing my overall recovery time. My rate of recovery amazed my family and I. Thank you!
Hip Surgery
The prospect of a total hip replacement at 51 was daunting, but a decision I don’t regret one bit…within 7 weeks I am 95% back to life as normal – no pain, walking 2-3 miles a day without aids and driving! A true testament to the skill and care of Mr Makrides and his wider team.
