Stories from Andy's patients

Richard underwent a right partial knee replacement for osteoarthritis at the Fortius Joint Replacement Centre in Spring 2018.
Before he even examined me, he just listened. It was the first time I felt like anyone had really listened to me. David was operated on by Mr Andy Williams in late 2017.
At 17 years old, in a match against Leeds Carnegie, Luis injured his knee spelling an indefinite break from his rugby career.

Arthroscopy allows surgeons to use a type of keyhole surgery to diagnose and treat joint problems.
Sometimes the meniscus can be repaired using small sutures (stitches)
