Patient Feedback

  • I had a new hip fitted by Mr Tai. It has all gone extremely well, in just a few weeks I’m pretty much back to normal movement, looking forward to getting back on the golf course! The whole treatment went exactly how Mr Tai said it would. Thank you so much to Mr Tai and the team at Pinehill Hospital.

  • Mr. Stephen Tai, is the best surgeon I could have chosen to carry out my hip replacement. He was very pleasant and professional in every way. My replacement hip surgery is a complete success. If my old hip replacement, from 1997, ever needs replacing, Mr Stephen Tai would be my first choice.

  • Mr Tai gave me a full hip replacement on the 8th January 2024, I had no problems what so ever, six weeks later I am walking unaided and free from pain and I am 78 years of age . Mr Tai is one of the most pleasant consultants I have ever met , I would recommend him one hundred percent.
