What our patients say

I had a Total Knee Replacement 8 weeks ago and I’m now pain free and walking quite well. Because I was very nervous and anxious because of a previous operation not related to Mr Tai, he treated me with a lot of reassurance and kindness explaining everything that was going to happen regarding my Operation and although I was nervous on the day of my Operation there was no need to be because Mr Tai was there to reassure me about everything.m, and to be quite truthful he has restored my faith in Hospital’s and Operations and will be quite happy to go ahead when the time come’s to have Mr Tai to do a Knee Replacement on my other knee.

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 Tai made me feel comfortable with the operation explaining all that would happen and i am 100 percent happy with my hip replacment,the aftercare i received from both him and Pinehill hospital was second to none i cannot think of anything of how they could improve the service as it was spot on.
