Right from the first time I met Mr Clifton I was impressed. Following an X-ray which showed my problem he laid out the course of treatments could follow and was more than happy to answer any questions I had. We discussed my condition and agreed on a course of action that involved surgery for a partial replacement of my knee. The operation was carried out at a time that suited me. Following on from my Op I was given some exercises to follow which I dutifully did. As the staff explained you have to get mobile as soon as possible to help get as much flexibility as is possible. So although there is pain initially, in the long run the mixture of following the exercises, resting with it up and icing the knee have worked for me. Six months down the line I have a scar which you can hardly see and great flexibility in the knee. If you can after the initial exercises start swimming cycling and using a cross trainer. All are good exercises for knees without the strain.

Excellent manner, very professional but at the same time he seemed friendly and approachable. At initial examination fully explained what was wrong with my knee and what needed to be done. Pre op put me at my ease. The operation appears to have been a complete success and the scar is very neat. It's great to be seen at Stamford Hospital and I was impressed that all appointments with Mr Clifton were on time.

I had both me knees replaced by Mr Clifton, and throughout the process, had 100% confidence in his expertise, knowledge are customer care. I think the fact that I had both knees replaced within 2 years, shows that I totally trusted him, and after the first operation, was happy to return and have my other one done! Mr Clifton was always polite and kept me informed at all times, both pre and post operation, and his staff always acted in the same professional manner. I would fully recommend him and his staff for similar operations.

The care and professional expertise I received from Mr. Rupert Clifton before, during and after my recent total knee replacement operation was superb. He gave me complete confidence before the operation as to the outcome which was completely successful. Mr Rupert Clifton, Dr Philip Das, the Anaethisist, and the staff at the Fitzwilliam Hospital, Peterborough gave me wonderful care and I can now look forward to enjoying life without a painful arthritic knee. I am so grateful to everyone.

In the past six months Mr Clifton has operated on me to give me two total knee replacements. As someone with a chronic systemic illness who had never before been admitted to hospital I was very worried about the operation and the recovery process. Mr Clifton patiently dealt with all my anxieties and clearly explained in layman's terms the details of the operation. The care and professionalism he showed cannot be faulted. My recovery from both operations has been speedy and without a doubt a large part of this must be down to his skill as a surgeon. I am so grateful to Mr Clifton who has given me back my life as before the operations I could not even walk around a supermarket. JK. Stamford

Punctual, nothing to say bad about Mr Clifton. Knee replacement 6 weeks ago and not taking any painkillers at all!
Written by a patient at Fitzwilliam Hospital

Mr Clifton has exhibited all round professional expertise throughout my treatment from initial assessment to the surgery itself, having resolved all problems pertaining to my right knee, I am currently awaiting for a date from Mr Clifton to repeat the procedure on my left knee, and I can then look forward to total mobility in the near future. I have every faith in Mr Clifton that this goal will be achieved.

The surgery on my knee was carried out so professionally that I did not need to take any pain killers durung my very short recovery. Thank you.
Written by a patient at Fitzwilliam Hospital

Conscious, professional takes time to explain the procedure and put the patient completely at ease. Post operative I was fully informed of how the procedure went and what to expect in the way of pain and discomfort. In my case I did not suffer much pain, this I put down the skill of the surgeon. The discomfort was well managed, and I found the experience to far less daunting than I expected, again I put this down the the surgeon and his team. My last consultation was a pleasant and informative experience. I have total confidence in Mr Rupert Clifton. I have not had much experience of hospitals and surgery but if they are all like this why worry? I can see no way the service can be improved.

Mr Rupert Clifton puts you at ease the minute you walk into his office. When it came to having my knee op I was a little scared as I don't like hospitals but should I have to have my other knee sorted then Mr Clifton will be my choice, it was a nice experience and I think that comes from not only Mr Clifton but also his staff. Excellent service.
Written by a patient

An excellant service, I was always kept well informed and made to feel safe and well, my new knee feels like it is my own but pain free with almost no signs of the operation scar. I would recommend Mr Clifton to anyone needing surgery and I would not hesitate to have any further surgery carried out by him but hopefully this will never be required.
Written by a patient

Although it is now several weeks since my appointment with Mr Clifton I would like to say how good it was to be treated with respect and as a real person. My treatment was excellent and very successful, saving me a serious operation. I cannot praise Mr Clifton enough.
Written by a patient

Mr Clifton was very attentive at all times and explained the procedure of my operation in great detail and listened to my concerns and questions. He also made me feel at ease in his manner that gave me the confidence to ask questions. As a patient it is very important to feel looked after and Mr Clifton had an extremely warm but professional manner which made me feel that I was in good hands.
